Was it the dimmest sun in the past?
“And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; He also made the stars. “
Those who believe in The Theory of Evolution are not always aware of the full implications of their Beliefs. They do not often realize that their Belief inevitably leads to ideas that we can prove are impossible. And, if such impossible corollaries are pointed out to them, they are generally discarded, because they assume that Evolution is a proven fact, and therefore they cannot conceive that Evolution is an idea that doesn’t work.
The Sun produces heat through a process of nuclear fusion. In its initial stages, fusion works by fusing four Hydrogen atoms to form one Helium atom, which is much less massive than the four Hydrogen atoms. This small difference in mass is converted into Thermal Energy.
This hydrogen-to-helium fusion will increase the temperature of the Sun’s core. But if this is so, then it also follows that the Sun must have been colder in the past. We can calculate that, at the current melting rate, the heat reaching the Earth’s surface would have been insufficient to raise the Earth’s temperature above 0 ° C (32 ° F) before 3.5 billion years ago behind. This timescale is important, because evolutionists believe that life evolved 3.5 billion years ago – and even evolutionists think that this would be impossible at such low temperatures.
It should be obvious that the evolutionary timescale is wrong. But, the temperature difference over a 6,000 year biblical calendar would be negligible. So the biblical calendar makes more sense than the evolutionary one.
Prayer: We know, Lord, that Your Word always tells the truth. Help us share the truth of Your Word wherever we go. Amen.
