Astronomers link this Chinese record with an infrared and X-ray cloud (RCW 86) south of Alpha Centauri, half way to the open cluster NGC 5866. They believe the explosion was a Type 1A supernova that occurs when a dwarf star sucks up so much matter from a companion that it fuses carbon and oxygen into heavy elements in a thermonuclear explosion. Astronomers have not located the progenitor stars. Their distance estimates to RCW 86 run from 8,200 or 9,100 light years. They calculate that the western shock wave is moving at about 600 kilometers per second while on the northeast it appears to be moving ten times as fast. The cloud is about 45' across, one and a half times the area of the full moon. If you use the astronomically accepted distances and do the trigonometry, it is about 100 light years in diameter. The shell is larger than it should be, by a factor of two to three times, for an explosion that occurred 1826 years ago. Some astronomers theorize that the progenitor star vacuumed up the dust around it forming a rarefied bubble so that the shock wave moved fast, because it was not crashing into stray atoms in space.
Modern astronomical calculations rarely fit the recorded observations of the ancients. The earliest astronomical record, the Venus tablet of Ammizaduga (of which 20 copies survive), records a Venusian orbit very different from the modern circuit. When astronomers try to use the record to calculate Ammizaduga’s date or an ancient eclipse, they almost never find a good fit to modern ephemeris. Ancient people mentioned close planet passages and the crushing of a great planet at close range. The Bible records similar events. Claudius Ptolemy measured larger planet diameters than we see. Over the centuries, astronomers continued to measure a decreasing solar optical parallax as though the solar system continues to expand. The 2004 Venus transit showed a larger solar system than the accepted radar value established in the 1960s.
Josephus wrote that the historians Mantho (Egypt), Berosus (Babylon), Mocus, Hestiaeus, Hieronoymous, Hesiod, Hecataeus, Hellanicus, Acusilaus, Ephorus and Nicolaus all agreed "that the record showed the ancients lived a thousand years." The Bible also records that the first generations lived for eons. Mesopotamian king lists show that the first kings reigned for tens of thousands of years, while latter kings reigned for decades. The contemporary Egyptian kings are not listed as reigning for eons. Job describes dinosaurs living alongside of men only 4,000 years ago. He lists several geological makers, such as the Mediterranean (Hebrew west) dried during the few days of their lives. Drill cores from the deep Mediterranean reveal alternating layers of deep sea oozes, stromatolites and anhydrites, confirming Job’s statement in chapter 14. Job even mentioned how their faced changed, doubled (shanah paniym), before they died. Indeed, we find the skulls of our ancestors with huge thick brows. The skull is the only part of our skeleton that keeps growing with age. If we lived for geological ages, our faces would grow Neanderthal. Neanderthals child skulls do not have the thick brows of their grandparents so the shape of their heads was not just genetic. The biblical Jacob said his days and years were shorter and worse than the days and years of his fathers (Genesis 47:9).
Should we force astronomical, geological and human histories to fit western linear time ideas? Isn’t it simpler to test the notion of linear time? We can see the past in billions of galaxies at many ranges. Not a single ancient galaxy shines with the light frequencies of modern hydrogen atoms. The earliest spectrum analyzed to date shines at one tenth the frequencies of modern atomic clocks. Dimmer and angularly smaller galaxies (more distant) shine at even lower, microwave frequencies. If clocks measure time, as Newton and Einstein assumed, why do countless atomic clocks clock faster rates the closer they shine to us?
Scientists measure with their notion of linear time. The primary scientific measuring unit is the second, defined with atomic light frequencies. Scientists scale their units for length, velocity, accelerations, gravity and thousands of other measuring symbols with their notion that atoms dither with perpetual motion. As the Pioneer spacecraft exited the solar system, their clock signals transmitted hours ago, when compared to NASA hydrogen maser clocks of the moment, kept on decreasing in frequency and this correlated with distance. Some scientists noticed that the Hubble ratio (used to estimate the distance to ancient galaxies using the frequencies of their light) approximates the ratio between the distance and clock rates observed in the Pioneer anomaly.
Where did scientists get their ideas about linear clocks? Twenty three hundred years ago a pagan philosopher argued that we could not invent a natural science without assuming that something down under (Greek hypokeimenon) does not change. Fifteen hundred years later the European Catholics interpreted Aristotle’s idea as “the essence of substance is changeless.” Upon the assumption that matter is not changing itself, later scientists invented definitions, measuring units, methods, laws, and mathematical constants. Scientific mathematics works locally, because their system was built on a single assumption. However, since no perpetual motion atoms shine from the distance, their efforts to calculate Earth and cosmic histories fail completely.
The most powerful evidence that matter keeps on changing itself is galactic history. We observe how tiny, naked galaxies spread out, shooting out strings of equally spaced blobs. The blobs spread out, circled around more, accelerated out continually as billions of galaxies intrinsically grew. The atomic clocks, the space matter takes up and its inertial properties all changed together as billions of galaxies grew into huge, local, dusty growth spirals. Relational change is where everything shifts in parallel, together. In such a universe there are no physical constants.
What was it like living on Earth a few thousand years ago? We cannot mathematically calculate the ancient living conditions because visibly the properties of all matter keep on changing relationally. However, we can see that countless distant orbits do not close, they continually spiral out. What is visible can only be explained by accepting that the properties of matter are emerging relationally.

The Hubble Space Telescope found 10,000 galaxies by staring at a nine square-minute patch of dark sky in 2004. Most of the galaxies in the Hubble Ultra Deep Field are smaller than one arc second and the largest are only a few arc seconds across. Many of those ancient galaxies contain multicolor lumps. In some cases the lumps are strung out in a row, like a string of tracer bullets, called chain galaxies. Some galaxies have two clumps, known as doubles. Some galaxies have a lump with a single tail, known as tadpoles, but the tails also are lumpy. Other galaxies have multiple lumpy tails arching around different colored cores. Many ancient galaxies have no exact counterpart in the local universe.
The photos of ancient galaxies comes from NASA's Hubble Deep Field North and Ultra Deep Field.

Local galaxies also have clumpy appearances, especially when viewed in infrared. However, dust and gas fills the lanes between the clumps so that the arms look continuous from a distance. Clearly there is a historical connection between the ancient distinct clumps lined up in lanes and the spread out dust-connected rotated-out clumps we see locally. Our own Milky Way also has tiny companion galaxies linked back to us by a river of neutral hydrogen (evidence for ejections). We even find thin continuous star filaments arching many degrees outward in the Milky Way. Evidently the Milky Way has intrinsically grown into a huge growth spiral as it spread out and took up more space.
Visible galactic history supports biblical creation. Elohim created the galaxies (shamayim - plural heavens) and the Earth before he formed the stars. At first the Earth was minuscule, had no form, until Elohim continued to command light to continue to be. Indeed, we observe that matter involves a relation with light (both internal and external) that is related to the space atoms take up. Half way through the creation week He continued to form the Sun, Moon and stars and place them in the spreading place (raqiya). Evidently He formed the stars from the tohu bohu (formless) substances created first and matter continues to spread out as a relation with light. Three times the Bible states that the Earth spreads out in unbroken continuity. Indeed, a global expansion seam continues year by year to form new basaltic earth-crust in the oceans. The continents only fit together on a tiny globe without major seas. The theory of subduction is a scientific myth, since soft, layered, undisturbed sediments lie in the “subduction trenches.”
Someone might wonder, how could the stars be only six thousand years old? We can see that ancient atomic clocks shone at tiny fractions of the light frequencies of modern atoms. We also observe how the star streams accelerated out, rotated out, taking up more volume as billions of galaxies grew into huge, local, dusty, growth spirals. The clocks and the orbits are evidently both accelerating together because the properties of all matter continue to visibly change. Over the centuries our ancestors measured with angles a decreasing solar parallax as though the entire solar is expanding. Not a single constant is visible in the vast universe because atoms and orbits are observed to change relationally throughout cosmic history.
Scientists cannot allow what is visible to be true. This is because their definitions, measuring units, mathematical constants and methods depend on a single assumption. What assumption? The Bible predicts that in the last days mockers will come saying all things remain the same. They will obscure the age of the plural heavens (galaxies) with this idea, according to 2 Peter 3:3 - 6. Peter used the compound word ekpalai to describe the age of the plural heavens (the galaxies). In Greek ek means the origin from which actions or motions proceeded. The stars are ekpalai: they came out a great while ago. The word palai is related to palin - to renew or to repeat an action, which is related to pale: to vibrate or struggle. Another root word is ballo: to scatter, to throw a thing without caring where. Scientists obfuscate the visible fact that ancient atoms dithered at much lower frequencies and the stars came out from naked cores as the properties of matter continued to change relationally. They do so because they are trained to think with the historical first principle of science. http://knol.google.com/k/what-is-the-first-principle-of-modern-physics#
Isaiah 44:22 God actively spreads out the plural heavens and the Earth in unbroken continuity. He continues to call the stars to come out (Isaiah 40:26). His glory is revealed in the plural heavens (the galaxies - Psalm 19). Look at galactic history and you will see how great will be the triumph of the Word of God over science, the system that was founded on the very idea the Bible predicts for the last days.

The Hubble and XMM-Newton observatories periodically monitored the galaxy Markarian 509. Over a period of weeks, they detected high speed bullets moving out from the core. Markarians have active cores that shine brightly in ultra violet. A thin luminous bridge shines between the barred spiral NGC 4319 and Markarian 205. Yet Markarian 205 has a redshift fifteen times greater that the spiral galaxy with which it is visibly linked.
M83 is a face-on two-armed spiral sometimes called the Southern Pinwheel. Astronomers observed six supernovas dissipate into clouds in M83 over the last century. In 2000, the Chandra X-ray telescope caught an x-ray bright object actively emerging from the core. At radio frequencies, five equally spaced objects string out from the core toward the North East. (See accompanying pictures of M83)
A space telescope requires many hours to resolve faint, distant galaxies. About once a day, a bright gamma ray burst (GRB) reaches earth from the farthest parts of the universe. Two satellites, Fermi and Swift, transmit the burst coordinates to ground based telescopes. Several terrestrial telescopes observed the bright afterglow from GRB 090323 (March 23, 2009). Ancient atoms shine at tiny ratios of the spectra of modern atoms, which allows scientists to identify the elements. (The fading light from GRB 090323 shone at 22% of the spectral frequencies of modern atoms). The spectra also showed absorption lines from clouds containing heavy elements in the host galaxy and another one nearby. GRB 030329 (March 29, 2003) was so close that telescopes detected the slowly decreasing signatures of a supernova including oxygen emission lines. This suggests that at least some distant supernova begin with a gamma ray burst.
Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 and Advanced Camera for Surveys detected near infrared images of 69 dwarf galaxies as part of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey South and the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey. The spectra showed that these ancient dwarves were hyperactive, evidently forming stars at a prodigious rate. The ancient dwarfs lit up the surrounding clouds that contained oxygen atoms although the spectral patterns shone at vastly longer wavelengths than those emitted by modern oxygen.
According to the Bible, Elohim created the plural heavens (evidently the galaxies) and the Earth before the formation of the Sun and stars. At first, the primordial Earth was without form and began to spread out when Elohim continued to command light to continue to be. Indeed, the space matter takes up involves a relation with light that continues to dither around in every atom. Half way through the creation week, Elohim continued to form the Sun, Moon and stars and continued to place them in the spreading place, the raqiya. The finishing of the Earth and the hosts of the plural heavens (galaxies) in Genesis 2:1 uses an imperfect verb, an incomplete action that continues. These biblical statements suggest that tohu bohu (formless) matter flashes with light as it expands, taking up space. Indeed, we often see point sources in the heart of galaxies with jets moving out as the matter in the jet expands. We also notice that Earth’s continents only fit together on a tiny globe without major oceans. Fresh basaltic seafloor continues to form every year in a global expansion seam that runs through every ocean. The Scriptures state that the Earth spreads out in unbroken continuity above the waters. The earth cannot continue to grow unless tohu bohu (formless substance) continues to form into extended atoms in the heart of our globe.
The most powerful evidence for creation are the ancient dwarf galaxies shining in infrared and microwaves. Some of them are surrounded by equally spaced globs, like arching tracer bullets. At closer ranges we observe how the globs spread out, rotated around more, took up more volume and increased their atomic clock rates as billions of galaxies grew into huge growth spirals. We also observe jets emerging from many quasars and huge double lobes around some nearby active galaxies. A river of neutral hydrogen, perhaps a gas wake, connects the Milky Way to the dwarf Magellanic galaxies as though they were ejected long ago. At many ranges we observe how the stars spread out, taking up more space, rotating around more as billions of galaxies grew from the insides outward. What is visible is not scientific because it violates the historical first principle upon which western science was founded.
What principle? The Bible predicted that in the last days mockers would come obfuscating the age and history of the plural heavens (evidently the galaxies) with their idea that all things remain the same (2 Peter 3:3 - 6). The notion that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging, is the historical basis for western science. This idea came into the western system when the medieval Catholics simplified an Aristotelian idea - that the essence of substance is changeless. Using the assumption that the properties of matter are fixed, scientists invented definitions, measuring units, mathematical methods, laws and cosmologies.
Because this principle is visibly false in the distant sky, scientists must weave the most absurd stories about cosmic history. They explain that the universe started when a tiny bit of vacuum exploded, which formed an enormous cloud of subatomic soup. Eventually the soup cooled enough to form atoms that gravitated together into first generations stars. The first stars, which are no longer visible, fused heavy elements and then exploded again. These heavier clouds gravitated into second generation stars, which are still visible today. Eventually stars congregated into small galaxies that collided to form large galaxies like M83. Supposedly, as the vacuum of spacetime expands - it changes the frequencies of all light passing through the void, which is why ancient spectra shine at ratios of those emitted by modern atoms. When astronomers observe a knotted stream emerging from a point source, they claim matter is ejecting from an invisible black hole. Astronomers support these stories with complicated mathematics. However, their universe is 99% invisible and crammed full of undetectable things like invisible matter and vacuum energies that stretch out empty space, allegedly pushing galaxies away.
Biblical cosmic history is supported by a visibly confirmed principle. According to Romans 8:20 - 22 the creation is enslaved to change - an orderly deterioration that acts together. (Relational change is parallel change - where properties shift together in an orderly manner). Every galaxy in the vast universe shines with different clock frequencies than local atoms and the differences often increase with distance. The visible history of how billions of galaxies grew from tiny naked globs to huge spread-out growth spirals supports biblical cosmic history. God actively spreads out the plural heavens and the Earth in unbroken continuity (Isaiah 44:22). He calls the stars to come out in unbroken continuity and none go missing (Isaiah 40:26).
Someone might ask, how could billions of galaxies grow in only 6,000 years of biblical earth history? Carefully examine the universe, not with assumption about linear time and the mathematics of such an assumption. The atomic clocks and the stars streams visibly accelerated together in billions of galaxies at many ranges. Even local orbits seem to have accelerated. Our ancestors claimed to see close planet passages and a planet shattering at close range just a few thousand years ago. Even the clocks on the Pioneer spacecraft kept on changing their clock rates (compared to NASA’s clocks of the moment) and the differences correlated with distance, not Doppler.
The visible history of the universe supports a biblical creation and a biblical cosmic history. What is visible discredits the first principle upon which western science was founded. Since scientists are building huge new telescopes to observe the creation with greater resolution, God will certainly do what He promised, make foolish the wise of this age.

Modern Christians often wonder if creation occurred in six 24-hour days? Moses mentioned six evenings and mornings. He also referred to cyclical methods for determining days, seasons and years in Genesis 1:14. On the fourth day, Elohim continued to form and place the Sun, Moon and stars in the raqiya, the spreading place. (Raqiya is the noun form of the Hebrew verb raqa - to spread out). Orbits that spread apart are indicators of nonlinear time. For more than 2,000 years, astronomers have measured a decreasing solar parallax as though the solar system is gradually expanding.
The ancients saw non linearity in the very places we claim to see constants. Their watches followed nature and so were of unequal (seasonal) length. For example, day watches ran slower in summer than in winter and the converse was true of night watches. A Babylonian clay tablet records the differing amounts measured into a water clock to quantify seasonally unequal watches. Relative to the Earth, the shadow of the Sun varies with the seasons and the latitude. Each year in northern Scandinavia, the Sun did not set in summer and did not rise in winter.
Ancient people also had a non linear view of their genealogies. Hesiod claimed that a child in the silver age played at his mothers knee until he was a hundred years old. He complained of living in the iron age, when people never stopped laboring by day and dying by night. He thought this degeneration would continue until children were born with gray temples. The Bible also records that the earliest patriarchs lived for eons. Jacob said his days and years were shorter and worse than the days and years of his fathers. Job wrote that man who is born of woman is of few days. Yet he listed the geological ages that passed during those few days. He used the drying sea (Hebrew west) as one of his geological markers for the length of life. Drill fores from the deep Mediterranean support his statements, revealing alternating layers of deep sea oozes and dessert anhydrite. Job even mentioned how their faces deformed before they died. If we lived for geological ages, our faces would grow Neanderthal, since the skull is the only part of our skeleton that keeps slowly growing. What caused this generational degeneration? If you do not understand why the propagation delay of gravity accelerates days and years, then read this: http://www.godsriddle.info/2010/07/6000-years-of-gravity.html
Seasonal hours are very cumbersome for astronomical calculations since time varies with latitude as well as the seasons. For this reason, Ptolemy used equal hours in his calculations. He shifted the reference point to noon, when the shadow of the Sun was the shortest. He projected the Sun’s shadow onto the equator of an armillary sphere to calculate equinoctial hours. Equal hours were not experienced by common folk. Only astronomers had a celestial globe or an astrolabe for projecting seasonally varying hours onto a brass equator.
Why do Christians claim that the Bible records 24-hour creation days if such ideas did not exist during Moses age? Modern Christians combine the text of the Bible with the western epistemic system. The western system was founded upon an elementary assumption first suggested by Aristotle, a pagan philosopher. He insisted that we build all knowledge on changelessness, even though none is observed. The medieval Catholics adopted Aristotle’s system and taught it is western schools for several centuries. They simplified his basic assumption to: the essence of substance is changeless. Concepts of linear time are based on the notion that matter does not change as it ages. Yet we can directly compare the past to the present in billions of galaxies at many ranges. The most distant atomic clocks tick at tiny fractions of the frequencies of modern atoms. Even when we sent calibrated clocks out of the solar system on the Pioneer spacecraft, their clock signals transmitted from the past slowed the farther they receded from Earth, compared to NASA’s hydrogen maser clocks of the moment. Nowhere in nature do we observe any constants since atoms are always observed to change relationally with age.
The most compelling evidence for non linear earth history is how the galaxies grew from tiny naked globs to great, spread out growth spirals as the stars accelerated out and spread out. Isaiah says God calls the stars to come out in unbroken continuity. He is spreading out the earth and the plural heavens (the galaxies) in unbroken continuity. Indeed, the primordial Earth must have been minuscule since the continents only fit together on a tiny globe. Fresh crust forms every year along a global undersea expansion seam. The Bible states that the earth spreads out in unbroken continuity above the waters. The earth and the galaxies cannot continue to grow unless matter continues to take up more space, changing itself relationally.
Why do scientists deny the only history that is visible as it happened, galactic history? Their definitions, measuring units and mathematical laws depend on an assumption. Peter prophesied that in the last days mockers will come saying all things remain the same. They will obfuscate the age and history of the plural heavens (the galaxies) with this idea - that matter is not changing itself. So why do we teach our children to think with this idea? Each year thousands of Christian youth are cast adrift not knowing how to differentiate evidence from science’s elementary assumption. They were taught to think scientifically using the very idea the Bible predicted for the false teachers of the last days.
Look at the light from the ancient universe. In billions of ancient galaxies we see God’s great glory and His righteous judgments. Every clock in billions of galaxies runs at a different clock rate from modern atoms. How do we know it was not the vacuum of space-time that stretched the light? We observe at many ranges and all directions how the star streams accelerated outward, taking up more space as billions of galaxies grew along with the accelerating atomic clocks. How great is His wisdom. Without any deception, He can make foolish the wise of this age, as He promised.

However, the photos of Lutetia show a thick coating of dust. Due to its porous structure, regolith dust is lighter than rocks. Dust avalanches run down numerous slopes. In one enormous valley several regolith landslides are peppered with hundreds of boulders larger than football fields. One crater, Massilia has a diameter of 55 kilometers suggesting that the asteroid is solid enough to remain intact from an impact of this magnitude. All of these suggest that Lutetia contains a dense metal core. Large planets like Earth are thought to have a pure nickel iron core.
Astronomers claim that asteroids are aggregates of dust that gravitated together into a rubble pile. In the case of Lutetia, ESA admits that it seems to be mostly solid and probably has an iron core. However, they say it is a failed planet. Supposedly as dust gravitated together, radioactive heating melted some of the iron enough to cause it to settle down under the dusty surface. Yet it never got hot enough to completely melt the iron to form a solid core. The scientific story is that Lutetia is a failed planetesimal - that tried to grow into a larger planet but didn’t quite make it.
This is an ad hoc story if there ever was one. If asteroids and comets look like pieces of a shattered planet, if they have volcanic rocks, high temperature crystals and sedimentary rocks - as we have detected from samples of the comet Wild2 - why can’t they admit that it is the fragment of a broken planet?
Scientists have a first principle, a fundamental, elementary assumption that is the historical basis for their system. They interpret all evidence with their assumption that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging. Scientific definitions, measuring units, methods and mathematics are based on their notion that atoms are perpetual motion engines that do not change relationally as they age. The scientific universe is 99% invisible so that they do not have to believe the only history that is visible as it happened, galactic history.
Biblical physics supports a literal biblical earth history, instead of scientific stories. Biblical physics is simple, non mathematical and accepts what the Bible states - that the creation is enslaved to change. Indeed, we can follow in billions of galaxies how the frequencies of atoms keeps increasing as matter ages. We also follow how the stars came out, spread out, accelerated out, rotated around more as billions of galaxies grew into huge, dusty, local, growth spirals.
What does this have to do with Lutetia? The Bible gives four different references to the crushing of a great planet at close range to Earth. It also mentions a close passage - when the stars fought from their courses. A western person might ask, what changed that planets no longer pass close to Earth, as they did 3,000 years ago? You will not get the right answer if you ask the wrong question. The proper question is - What didn’t change? It certainly was not the properties of matter that did not change - since we observe the changing nature of matter in billions of galaxies at many ranges. What did not change was the relational nature of matter - the fact that it changes in an orderly, together manner - just like the Apostle Paul described in Romans 8:10 - 22.
What is Lutetia? It is part of a crushed planet - just like every society remembered 3,000 years ago? When was the planet smashed? Isaiah says it happened in the eon age, the generations of long ago. How can eon ages pass in only 3,000 years? Job, who mentions the planet crushing twice also mentions dinosaurs living alongside of men. He recorded how people lived for geological ages as water washed away the dust of the earth and mountains were moved from their place. He even mentioned how the sea (Hebrew west) dried up. Indeed, we find alternating layers of deep sea oozes and desiccated gypsum in the deep Mediterranean - clear evidence that it dried to a near dessert several times. He even describes how their faces deformed - doubled - (shanah paniym) before they died. If we lived for geological ages our faces would grow Neanderthal.
Look at the past with sight instead of dogmas about perpetual motion atoms. We can see that atomic clocks and orbits are both accelerating together as countless star streams in countless galaxies kept on accelerating outward. Evidently the same things happened here locally as the properties of matter kept on changing. Three times the Bible states that the Earth spreads out in unbroken continuity. Indeed, the continents only fit together on a minuscule planet. What we see confirms exactly what Elohim says He is doing in unbroken continuity. How great will be the triumph of the word of God over science. How will it happen? Scientists are building huge new telescopes. What is visible is not scientific, which is why scientists have filled the universe up with magical, invisible matter and ridiculous vacuum forces. Only a literal interpretation of biblical creation and earth history fits the visible history of the universe.
