Young Spiral Galaxies

Evidence from Astronomy

This is Ken Ham, president of the ministry producing the Answers Bible Curriculum.


Our universe is filled with trillions of stars arranged into galaxies. Now its amazing that the Bible describes their creation with just the phrase: “He made the stars also.”

One type of galaxy is the “spiral galaxy.” Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is a spiral. It is made of 200 billion stars.

Now, the inside stars rotate faster than the outside stars that form the “arms” of the spiral. Follow this: this uneven rotation should make the spiral arms disappear after just a few rotations. Yet we still see them all throughout the universe.

This is only a problem if you believe in billions of years. But when we start with God’s Word, God created spiral galaxies thousands of years ago.
