Let’s Talk About Astronomy For A minute – Big Bang Problems -by David Rives


Let’s talk about Astronomy for a minute…. The Bible says the heavens declare the glory of God but there is a theory that says that 14 billion years ago, everything started on its own, purely by accident. But how do you even get the first star to form when a Big Bang would send all the matter on a trajectory that moved matter farther apart, not together? Forget that troubling question… how about Harvard Smithsonian center for astrophysics which brings up another big problem…. if the Big Bang is true, then where did the matter come from in the first place?

There are some big holes in the Big Bang theory, and the scientific study of magnetic fields around planets actually shows that many (or all) cosmic bodies may have been formed only thousands of years ago. Perhaps on day 4 of Creation Week?

How the Stars Were Formed

Evolutionary cosmology indicates that after the Big Bang, an unlikely event took place which brought particles of matter together forming clouds of gas, and subsequently stars.

But in scientific law: There is no gas known to man that clumps together. It always pushes apart. It is a physical law that gas in a vacuum expands, not contracts. And if you can’t get gasses to accumulate together, there would never be enough mutual gravity to form stars. Analysts believe that most nebulae do not have enough gas to produce stars.

Scriptures tell us that in the beginning, God created the stars on day four. – …Praise him, all ye stars of light…. Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.


A supernova is a star that has reached a critical point, and explodes, normally in a spectacular display of light.

Based on the Big Bang theory, shortly after an explosion 14 billion years ago, stars began forming and exploding frequently, and as the first stars went supernova (or exploded), they gave rise to a second generation of stars called Population II. As these went supernova, a third generation was borne.

What is interesting to note is that we observe very little supernova activity. Very few stars are actually exploding, and there are not anywhere near enough supernovae to produce the elements that we see today. In May of 2011, I was able to photograph a supernova in M51. This is a rare event, even considering that M51 is thought to contain over 200 billion stars.

But the problem is much deeper. Not only are exploding stars somewhat rare, but astronomers also can’t find first generation stars. Without the existence of these stars, second and third generation stars cannot be created, and one more aspect of the Big Bang model falls to pieces.

I’m David Rives, inviting you to study and observe that truly, the Heavens Declare the Glory of God.
