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 Readers are also cautioned against the flaws of some popular young-universe arguments, so they can avoid outdated and inaccurate apologetics.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.
