Before modern day astronomy no one really knew how planets formed, and since Moses’s time the statement he recorded at Genesis 1:2 ‘the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface,’ has been a mystery to bible scholars and scientist alike, until now.
Recent discoveries made by NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer telescopes on proto-planetary disc, show how planets form in total darkness in the same fashion as Moses described in Genesis thirty-five hundred years ago from a formless cloud of dust, and debris, It appears Hubble solves creation mystery.
This scientific data corresponds exactly with Genesis description of the earth being formless and in darkness at some stage in its early development, and solves a number of long time Bible creation account mysteries, says author Paul Hutchins.
In his documentary The Story of Everything ‘ Stephen Hawking’s revealed very dramatically how planets form inside formless clouds of dust in darkness and how the sun suddenly came to life, shedding much light on what Moses recorded.
According to Hutchins; ‘when you view Hawking’s video simulating this process, along with the supporting data from NASA, and compare it to Moses’s brief description of Earth’s creation, the Bible’s description of planet formation is amazingly accurate in view of the fact that the Hebrew word translated ‘day’ (yom) can mean various lengths of time, not just a 24 hour period.’
This data indicates that the six creative days (that commenced after the planet formed from a cloud of dust, over a period of millions to billions of years) were not literal 24-hour days, but rather six creative phases of unspecified lengths, where light from the sun emerged to create the life sustaining conditions necessary for plant, animal, and finally intelligent human life.
The Bible statement at Genesis 1:3 ‘Let there be light’ on day one, corresponds to when our sun came to life as it transitioned from a protostar to a main sequence star as demonstrated in Hawking’s video.
Only in the later stages of planet formation when earth’s atmosphere cleared would bright direct light from the already existing sun, moon, and stars be visible from the earth.
This data corresponds to Genesis 1:16 for day four when viewed in the context of the Hebrew language. ‘And God proceeded to ‘make’ (a•sah) the two great luminaries…., and also the stars.’ (the Hebrew word ‘a•sah’ does not mean to create, but rather to bring to completion).
The common perception of the Genesis account has been; creation took place in six literal 24-hour days, and the sun, moon, and stars, were created on day four. These recent scientific discoveries remove much confusion about Genesis account of Earth’s creation.See Full Story..
