Once again, a NASA space probe is supporting the 6,000-year biblical age of the solar system. On 14 January 2008, the Messenger spacecraft flew by the innermost planet of the solar system, Mercury. It was the first of several close encounters before Messenger finally settles into a steady orbit around Mercury in 2011.1 As it passed, it made quick measurements of Mercurys magnetic field and transmitted them successfully back to Earth. On 4 July 2008, the Messenger team reported the magnetic results from the first flyby.2
As I mentioned on the CMI website earlier,3,4 I have been eagerly awaiting the results, because in 1984 I made scientific predictionsbased on Scriptureabout the magnetic fields of a number of planets, including that of Mercury.5 Spacecraft measurements6,7 have validated three of the predictions, highlighted in red in the web version of the 1984 article. The remaining prediction was:

And forget the germ theory. It’s really evil spirits that cause disease.
Read Later Bump.., Cool!
Michael Medved’s belief in Bigfoot dilutes his message too.
==And forget the germ theory. Its really evil spirits that cause disease.
Dr. Humphreys made three specific scientific predictions with respect to the magnetic fields of three planets in our solar system, and all three of them were validated by satellite data. He based these predictions on the biblical notion that our solar system is roughly 6,000 years old. Do you suppose he just got lucky?
And why would I want to forget the germ theory? Not only is it empirically true, but several creationist scientists were instrumental in its development.
==I think people like Dr Humphreys need to realize this: 1. The Earth is not flat. 2. The universe is way older than 6000 years. 3. The Earth is not the center of the universe.
We agree on #1. But can you demonstrate #2? As for #3, while it can be demonstrated that the Earth is not the center of the universe, what is your evidence that that the universe has no center?
Two groups amuse me:
Vegetarians who are supposedly happy with their choices but are constantly eating meat flavored this and that
The devout who are supposedly secure in their beliefs but spend their time trying to prove scientists wrong
“As I mentioned on the CMI website earlier,3,4 I have been eagerly awaiting the results, because in 1984 I made scientific predictionsbased on Scriptureabout the magnetic fields of a number of planets, including that of Mercury.5 Spacecraft measurements6,7 have validated three of the predictions,”
Oh please. When a probe is sent out like this, scientists already have a prediction on what the results will be and usually they are right on or very close. Anybody can take the scientists predictions, pick and choose and twist scripture to create some rational to predict the same thing, then sit back and pretend they proved something.
If the universe is only 6000 years old, God went to a LOT of trouble to make it look otherwise. There are stars over 100 million light years away, and we can only seem them because they were there 100 million years ago when they first emitted the light that now reaches us.
Thank you for this evidence supporting a young universe. While no human observer was present at the origin of the universe, God was. And he records it in His Word.
Evidence in the physical world around us points to special creation, the irrelevance of Evolutionism, and a young universe.
Those Ptolemaics defending the crushed evolutionary model not withstanding.
Keep up the great work!
Fine... You can find proof here on Earth that Dinosaur bones are a least way older than 6000 years.... I would say a million or more..

Actually, it's devout scientists falsifying Darwin's unscientific fairytale. But don't worry, the epigeneticists are busy falsifying Darwin too. It won't be long before Darwin's fairytale is taken out with the trash, and the evos are forced to come up with a new God-denying theory to take its place. It will probably come in the form of a neo-Lamarckian resurgence, led by the field of epigenetics.
Then how do you explain this???
If the universe is only 6,000 years old, then how can it contain quasars that are 28 billion light years distant from Earth?
