Kepler’s elliptical orbit :

Kepler’s elliptical orbit "Thinking God’s thoughts after him."

Galileo Galilei (1564-1642):

Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

Galileo, the Church and the Scriptures:

Galileo, the Church and the Scriptures Psalm 93:1,2 The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. The world is firmly established;it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.

Galileo, the Church and the Scriptures:

Galileo, the Church and the Scriptures Psalm 97:1-4 The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad;let the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne . Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles .

The Expanding Universe:

The Expanding Universe The velocity of expansion is expressed in the equation: v = Hr in which v is velocity, r is distance between two points, and H , called Hubble's constant, is a proportionality value that relates velocity and distance.

Cosmological Models Come & Go:

Cosmological Models Come & Go

Evidence for a Young Earth:

Evidence for a Young Earth Process Max Age (years) Evolution Age (years) 1. Galaxies wind up too fast several million 10 Billion 2. Comets Disintegrate too quickly 100,000 10 Billion 3. Earth's continents erode too fast 15 million 5 Billion 4. Not enough sediment on the sea floors 15 million 200 million 5. Ocean accumulates sodium too fast 60 million 3 Billion 6. Earth's magnetic field energy decays too fast. 10,000 5 Billion 7. Multilayer fossils straddle too many strata several millions 8. Many strata are too tightly bent several thousand 100 million 9. Out of sequence fossils scramble timetable ? 100s of millions 10. Not enough helium in earth's atmosphere 2 million 5 billion 11. Fossil radioactivity shortens "geologic ages“ to several years instantaneous 5 billion
