Spirial Galaxies Show The Universe To Be Young

How old is the universe? 13.8 billion years? Not if you look at the evidence.

Let's take a trip into deep space where we'll find spiral galaxies. If fact we live in a spiral galaxy. We can see that the stars in our galaxy move at different speeds. The outer stars move slower than the inner stars. The result is that the galaxy should wind up and become a blob of stars in just a few hundred million years. Yet our galaxy is supposed to be over 13 billions years old, and it still has spiral arms! They should be there! Our galaxy is more than 13 billion years old... spiral arms disappear in a couple of hundred million years. The numbers are not adding up. The oberservable ervidence is telling us our galaxy, and the universe, has to be young. It's not billions of years old.

So am I saying our galaxy is 100 million (or more) years old? No. Our Milky Way galaxy should have fallen apart 200 to 300 million years ago. That's a long time, but it does not mean our galaxy has been around for that long. It's just the upper limit. The Milky Way is in good condition and appears fairly new... so 6,000 years is not an unreasable age. BUT, it is certainly not 13+ BILLION years old.


What About Distant Galaxies?

When we look out to the "edges of the universe," what do we see? Galaxies, but the furthest ones are too far away for us to see their shape. However, what is puzzling is that, when we look at galaxies that far away we are supposedly looking back 13.3 billion years in time. That's how long it would take the light from the farthest observed galaxy to reach us based on evolutonary thinking. This means we are seeing that furthest galaxy as it was just 500 million years after the big bang. To be 13 billion light years away from us in 13.8 billion years means that galaxy must be moving away from us at an average of 96% of the speed of light. The numbers don't make sense.

GETTING A RIDE
ON THE ROAD TO LIFE

Romans Road


You will exist forever. The question is, where? Disobeying God is the road to death, and we have all disobeyed God:

For all have sinned [disobeyed God] and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

The consequence of sin is death. You will exist experiencing death forever.

For the wages of sin is death... - Romans 6:23a

But there is GOOD News! You can have life!

...but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6:23b

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8

Instead of our experiencing death forever, Christ died in our place. Repent (turn away from disobeying God), believe this, trusting that Jesus truly did die in your place.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 5:1
