The Young Earth: Comet Disintegration

The Young Earth: Comet Disintegration

There are numerous examples of evidence for a recent, six day creation (about six thousand years ago). One such example can be found in comets. According to NASA, a "comet ... is an icy body that releases
gas or dust. Most of the comets that can be seen from Earth travel
around the sun in long, oval orbits. A comet consists of a solid
nucleus (core) surrounded by a cloudy atmosphere called the coma and
one or two tails." According to the theory of evolution, comets are
supposed to be roughly the same age as the earth and were assembled by
debris of gas, ice, rocks, and dust about 4.6 billion years ago. (1)

Such an explanation does not match observed evidence, however. Every time a
comet passes near the sun, a significant portion of the comet's
material is lost. In fact, so much of that material is lost during a
single pass-by that comets could not last much longer than 100,000
years. There are many comets that are younger than 10,000 years.

Evolutionists attempt to explain such facts away. Evolutionary astronomers assume
there is an "Oort Cloud" beyond Pluto that somehow produces new comets
(hence the existence of comets today), though such a phenomenon has
never been observed nor actually known to exist. Another proposal
evolutionists offer to explain the existence of comets is that there
are "improbable gravitational interactions with infrequently passing
stars [that] often knock comets into the solar system." (2)

Despite earnest attempts by evolutionists to explain away the observable
evidence and the existence of comets, the proposals offered have no
scientific evidence to support such desperate assumptions and claims.
Comets are not a problem for the biblical worldview, however. Genesis
tells us that God created the universe in six literal days
approximately six thousand years ago, clearly young enough to account
for the short life-span of comets.

The Young Earth is a series of articles by that examines the various
evidences for a literal, six day Creation about six thousand years ago.

lol Yeah that's a good one too. I'll have to fit that into this series somehow. Thanks for reading!

Another phenomenon is Saturn's rings, which have recently proven to be "surprisingly unstable" -- well, it's only surprising if you assume they've lasted for billions of years.
