How to Date a Solar System (and Universe)

Sirius and astronomy Meme

Sirius B, the smaller star in the image, is a conundrum for astronomers. On the one hand, it supposedly collapsed from being a red giant to a white dwarf millions of years ago. For example, says that our own sun will eventually spend “about 1 billion years as a red giant.”

Sirius B, however, was reported as being a red star in antiquity around 2,000 years ago. Ptolemy, for example, around 150 AD, talked about this in his Almagest. He described Sirius as being reddish, along with five other stars of similar hue (including Betelgeuse and Arcturus). Cicero, around 50 BC, gave even earlier support. This calls into question astronomical chronology, as do other recent discoveries.

For example,

  • Saturn’s rings cannot be billions of years old because they would have dissipated long ago.
  • Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, is spraying ice out from a huge geyser on its south pole. But it should have cooled off and quieted down billions of years ago, according to secular theory.
  • Mercury, if it truly were billions of years old, should not have a magnetic field, but it does.
  • Venus is supposed to be over four billion years old, but evolutionists admit these billions of years are missing from its history: the surface has very few impact craters and looks young and fresh.
  • Jupiter’s moon, Io, is the most volcanically active place in the solar system and would have recycled itself through its volcanoes several times if it was really billions of years old.
  • Neptune, the farthest planet from the sun, was expected to be old, cold, and geologically dead, but it is not. It radiates almost twice as much energy into space as it receives and has the most violent winds in the solar system (1300 miles per hour).
  • Beyond Neptune, asteroids in the Kuiper Belt were recently discovered to have fresh ice on their surfaces. Apparently, there are active volcanoes on some of these objects. This is quite possible if they are young, but impossible according to long-age theories that supposed these objects would have frozen solid.

Are you aware that Hebrews 1: 8 and 10 say of the Son, that is, Jesus: “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heaves are the work of Your hands.” He is not only your Creator: He went to the cross so people like you could go to heaven. Trust Him.

Hi, I’m Cheri Fields: 2nd generation homeschooling mom of seven, wife, writer, and science lover. There is a wealth of information available to help people see how trustworthy God and His testimony in the Bible is. The key is to explain concepts simply so they can be understood by anyone. This is my goal, and I’ve had a lot of fun tackling areas where the world tests our faith.
