The Bible and science: Saturn – The ringed planet

by Raymond Strom   Saturn is a planet that has long fascinated astronomers largely because of its beautiful and amazing rings. As another gas-giant planet, it holds some enigmatic mysteries in its structure. Saturn is made primarily of hydrogen, and as such, the planet has a very low density. Like Jupiter, it really should not […]

The Bible and science: Jupiter – The grand planet

by Raymond Strom   Jupiter, the most massive planet in our solar system, is a fascinating object.

This early life, in its simplest forms, gradually became more complex as time progressed, and ultimately has resulted in man. While in centuries past, the source of complexity has not been known, more recently […]

Mercury – the small, hot planet with surprises

by Raymond Strom The measure of a good model of any kind is to be able to predict what future observations might turn out to be.  In terms of astronomy, and particularly the solar system we live in, evolutionary astronomy has not done well.  Mercury, the innermost planet is a good case in point. Because […]

We learned that the Nebular Hypothesis is the prevailing theory regarding its […]

Our Solar System

by Raymond Strom   Over the next series of articles, we are going to look and evaluate scientific data regarding our solar system and our “local” astronomical objects. Our solar system is complicated and even current observations of close planets are seriously incomplete.  So even with an incomplete, and arguably fractional data set, evolutionary scientists […]
