Daily Devotional – February 27
Every time NASA sends a probe to a new location within our solar system, it sends back images that astonish scientists. Why the surprise? Because probe after probe sends back images that would not be expected if our solar system were billions of years old. Evidence for the recent creation of our solar system abounds - from the moon of Jupiter (Io) which is inexplicably volcanically active (it should be a cold moon, if millions of years old) to the raging storms and heat radiating from Neptune (it should be a cold planet if millions of years old); from the magnetic field of Mercury (which should not exist if this solid planet was billions of years old) to stable rings of dust orbiting the sun within the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter (which should have long ago been pulled apart by the gravitational attraction of the sun). The latest discovery supporting the recent creation of our solar system is the smooth surface of Pluto.
In July of 2015, NASA released photographs taken during the New Horizons space probe’s fly-by of Pluto. Again evolutionary scientists were stunned by the evidence. Pluto’s surface showed very few craters. If Pluto had been in existence for billions of years, there should have been millions of craters on the surface from impacts of objects hitting it, and any gas in the atmosphere around the planetoid should be long gone. Yet, Pluto was inexplicably found to have very few craters and a nitrogen atmosphere. Both are best understood as perfectly logical because our solar system is a recent creation by God only about 6000 years ago – rather than a chance formation billions of years ago. Pluto’s smooth surface, along with the existence of an atmosphere, cries out, “Pluto is young!”
God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
~ Psalm 53:2
