Spiral Galaxies and Blue Stars

Challenges to an Old Universe from Astronomy

This is Ken Ham, author, speaker, and blogger on science and the Bible’s reliability.


Many people assume that astronomy confirms the idea of millions of years. But what we see in the heavens actually challenges this idea.

Here is just one example: We see beautiful spiral galaxies throughout our universe. The arms of these galaxies are filled with blue stars. These stars are very bright and they burn through their fuel quickly. Secular astronomers must assume that new stars are constantly forming. But this belief has never been observed and the idea is filled with problems.

The heavens declare the glory of God and the truth of the Bible. The stars—and other heavenly bodies—were created on Day Four of the Creation Week just a few thousand years ago, just like the Bible says.
