Answering Questions About Astronomy answers common questions. For example, did the moon appear as blood on the night of the crucifixion? Was the second law of thermodynamics in place before the fall? Readers are also cautioned against some young-universe arguments so they can avoid outdated apologetics. These questions and many others are answered.


The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork” (Psalm 19:1, ESV). Astronomy, series 2 of ARMS, explores God’s majesty and power as displayed in His created universe. These monographs lay a foundation for a biblical model of cosmology and provide answers to some common objections and arguments proposed in mainstream astronomy. Astronomy is a collection of academic papers previously published in Answers in Genesis’ scholarly publication, Answers Research Journal. Immerse yourself in God’s glorious heavens in these technical, in-depth articles written by expert astronomers that remain accessible to the average reader.

Volume 2 of Astronomy answers several fascinating questions, such as whether the moon appeared as blood on the night of the Crucifixion; the possible lengths of the Flood months, depending upon which calendar is used in Genesis 7 & 8; and considerations concerning Ussher’s date of Creation. Was the Second Law of Thermodynamics already in place before the Fall, or is it a result of the Curse? Is it possible to astronomically date the Flood within the hydroplate model? Is Frances Rolleston’s gospel in the stars a legitimate thesis? These questions and several others are answered in this volume. Readers are also cautioned against the flaws of some popular young-universe arguments, so they can avoid outdated and inaccurate apologetics. Lastly, Answering Questions about Astronomy presents the results of some original experiments that tested the flat-earth prediction that the moon’s light has a cooling effect.
