Spiral Galaxies


Part 2



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


Astronomers estimate there are over one hundred billion galaxies in the observable universe. Many of these are shaped in beautiful spirals. They have dense clusters of stars in the center. Their arms spiral outwards.

Now, the outer stars of a spiral take longer to complete their orbit than the stars on the inside. So, after a few rotations, the spirals should disappear. And yet we still see beautiful spirals.

You see, if the universe is billions of years old, we shouldn’t see spiral galaxies—and yet we do! That’s because the universe is only thousands of years old, and the incredible order we see in the heavens was put there by God.
