Answer by John Mackay Genesis chapter 1 verse 16 reads “he made the stars also,” where stars is a translation of the Hebrew word ‘kokab’. (see Strongs 3556) All modern English versions use the word ‘star’ here, so what about planets? Where do they come from? Actually, I still remember learning in my Year Eight […]

The original question was: Recent research claims the universe is static and not expanding, but what about the evidence from red shift? Answer by Barry Setterfield The proposition that the universe may be static comes as a shock to many. The research paper dealing with this question by Lerner et al, was published in the […]
Answer by Barry Setterfield One noted secular and brilliant astronomer who claimed there is a different way to interpret red shift was Halton Christian (Chip) Arp. He was born in New York City, USA, on March 21st 1927 and died, aged 86, in Munich, Germany on December 28th, 2013. Regardless of what model is preferred, […]
As this question covers a vast topic Philip Mott has written his response as a series questions and answers as it seemed a way of being more direct and enables him to explore the issues better from a layman’s point of view.

Answer by Philip Mott Lunar eclipses occur when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned and the Moon passes into the Earth’s shadow, which can only ever happen on the night of a Full Moon. There are at least two each year, and over a quarter of them are total eclipses. Unlike solar eclipses, which […]
Answer by Barry Setterfield On the 20th of February 2014, I took the articles about this and discussed it with my astronomy class of high school seniors. We went over the articles together and noted the following sequence of reasoning: 1. What has been found is a polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR) […]
Answer by Philip Mott The Big Bang theory was originally constructed as an explanation of why the spectral lines in the light received from distant galaxies were all red-shifted, i.e. at a longer wavelength than that measured in the laboratory. If you interpret the observed redshift to be a Doppler shift, i.e. due to relative […]
