A Faint Sun?

Our sun produces energy by nuclear fusion. Computer modeling of this process, using evolutionary dates, predicted that the sun was fainter in the past and has brightened over time.

Now if this is true, the sun would’ve been thirty percent dimmer at the time when life is thought to have first evolved—and that means earth’s crust and oceans would’ve been frozen solid!

And that just doesn’t match the evidence! Geology suggests the earth was much warmer in the past—an interpretation shared by evolutionists and creationists. So which was it, “warmer or cooler?”

Evolution and old age ideas simply aren’t confirmed by the evidence.
