Jim Burr telescope designer* Bob Enyart Interviews a National Asset: Jim Burr is recognized throughout the world for his achievements in telescope design and manufacturing, including finally, after 400 years making binocular telescopes available to astronomers and amateurs alike! David Levy, co-discoverer of the famous Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet that crashed into Jupiter, says that Jim Burr's binocular telescopes are the greatest improvement to the concept of the telescope since Galileo!

What You Aren't Being Told About Astronomy:
Our Created Solar System
!

* The Sun, the Moon, the Formation of Stars: Hear Bob and Jim describe how it is that Big Bang cosmologists cannot explain the existence of our Moon, of our Sun, of our Sun's lack of rapid rotation, of the formation of a star, and of so many other features of our solar system and of galaxies. Scripture on the other hand says that the stars are innumerable, like the grains of the sand, even though in the ancient world, like today, only about 5,000 stars were visible to the naked eye, whereas astronomers now estimate that there are 70 (or more) sextillion stars, that's a 70 with 22 zeroes after it. And if all the stars in the heavens really being formed naturally, then millions of new stars should still be coming into existence (many of which would become visible to Earth) every hour, but that's just not happening. So where are all the photos showing portions of space where there was no star, and now there is a star? The truth is that, "In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth... and He made the stars also," (Gen. 1).

* April 2013 UPDATE: Last month Jim spoke at the Panama University to an overflow crowd of more than 1,000 people requiring the event to be moved outdoors into an open field, and this month he's headed back to Russia for his fourth trip to speak in six more Russian cities, which will make a total of twenty Russian cities and towns that have heard the Gospel and God as Creator from Jim's work. Please pray for his current trip! Also, Jim graciously acknowledged the gift he received from Real Science Radio, for reading on this long journey, of Walt Brown's In the Beginning.
