A One-of-a-Kind Planet

A Jewel of Creation

This is Ken Ham, author of the eye-opening book Six Days and Church Compromise.


Now, the planet Saturn is known as the “Jewel of the Solar System.” This giant planet is made almost entirely of liquid and gas. It’s 750 times the volume of earth. But its density’s so low, you could throw it in a giant bathtub, and it would float!

Saturn’s very different from earth, obviously. Our planet is solid, and so are Mercury, Venus, and Mars. But this is a puzzle to secular astronomers. If our solar system formed from a spinning cloud of dust and gas, why do we have kinds of planets? Other solar systems only have one or the other.

Our solar system has such diversity because God created it.
