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 1 of Astronomy proposes a new solution to the problem of distant starlight, offers a hypothesis for the nature of the firmament created on Day 2 and how it may potentially explain the cosmic microwave background (CMB), and suggests an explanation for the abundance of craters scarring heavenly bodies within a young universe. Readers will also learn about asteroids, comets, Cepheid variables, pulsars, globular clusters, planetary nebulae, supernovae, the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, the Hubble relation, spectroscopy, nucleosynthesis, how astronomers measure stellar distances, and much more. This volume also explains the Big Bang Model and some of its weaknesses. Although the Big Bang cosmology is false, it does not mean that creationists must reject the existence of dark matter or cosmological redshifts. To propel progress in biblical cosmology, Building the Creation Model of Astronomy challenges young-earth creationists to develop models and hypotheses to further explain phenomena of the universe, such as the CMB, the structure and clustering of galaxies, the chemical composition of the universe, “baryon acoustic oscillations,” and other characteristics of the created cosmos.
