2021 Hysterical and Edifying Update: Chicken Tyson vs. Steak-umm!
No match. Creationists 1. Atheists 0. 1 gazillion that is.
Bible thumper out-predicts astrophysicist (and while he's at it, every single Big Bang astronomer too :)
If you start using your scripture, your religious text, as a source of your science, that’s where you run into problems. And there is no example of someone reading their scripture and saying ‘I have a prediction about the world that no one knows yet because this gave me insight. Let's go test this prediction." And have that prediction turn out to be correct. -Tyson
Ha! Tyson could just glance at our list of RSR Predictions, and especially, our confirmed predictions, to see how wrong he is. (And it should be obvious even to atheists that Tyson's claim is invalid, because he would need a kind of omniscience to validate it.)
* Carnegie Observatories Weigh In: And as if to put an exclamation mark onto the program, the Carnegie Institution for Science has helped out with this, Elder Galaxies, What Made You Age So Quickly?, published in London on March 12, just a few hours after our program concluded in Denver, Colorado:
A group of astronomers has discovered 15 massive, mature galaxies located where they shouldn't be: at an average distance of 12 billion light years away from Earth.
At that age — a mere 1.6 billion years after the Big Bang – galaxies should be youthful entities, still gathering dust and gasses into stars. These 15, on the other hand, as observed today, are grown-ups filled with old stars and exhibiting a lack of active star formation.
"Their existence at such an early time raises new questions about what forced them to grow up so quickly," the Carnegie Institution for Science notes in a press release; two of the research team, Eric Persson and Andy Monson, are affiliated with the Carnegie Observatories.
The Epistle to the Hebrews: Many have been taught that the writer of this epistle addressed it to the Body of Christ, which of course, consists of some Jewish believers but mostly of Gentile Christians. In this verse-by-verse study, Bob Enyart takes the controversial stand that this is actually the epistle to the Hebrews. A crucial issue for those who seek to "rightly divide the word of truth", as the Bible commands us to do, is to understand what has changed regarding the believer and Israel's law, and what has not. So importantly, Hebrews teaches us: "For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law." Pastor Bob works through the book, chapter by chapter, asking God for the wisdom needed to rightly divide and to know what it is that the Lord has for us today!
