When I was in the 5th Grade, Haley’s Comet visited earth. I remember learning that it was an event of a lifetime since it only comes around once every 76 years. I remember thinking, ‘if I don’t catch it now, I’ll have to wait until I’m 86!’
Ever since then, I have been fascinated about comets, their scheduled arrivals and their origins.
As I would later learn, Haley was just one of countless fellow comets that are shooting all throughout our solar system. What I was not prepared for however, was to discover that even comets bring glory to God by demonstrating the truth of the Biblical timeline of thousands, not billions of years.
What do I mean?
As short period comets stream across the solar system, they are constantly losing material as their tails are diminished by relentless blasts of solar wind.
Most of the Astronomers I have studied believe that short terms comets have a lifespan of less than 10,000 years.
Therefore, if the earth and universe are really billions of years old, how is it that we still have comets?
According to the Big Bang Models, comets should have fizzled out over 15 billion years ago.
Why are they still in our solar system?
I hope that you are beginning to see that almost every observable aspect indicates a young earth and universe by any conceivably legitimate metric, just as the Bible lays out.
