Scientific stories of how galaxies formed begin with a tiny bit of vacuum that exploded more than 13 billion years ago forming a cloud of pre-atomic soup. They speculate that after a few hundred thousand years, the cloud cooled enough for atoms to form. Allegedly those primordial atoms were identical to modern atoms. First generation stars supposedly condensed gravitationally from the diffuse cloud. These stars rapidly burned their hydrogen and exploded, scattering heavy elements. The blue clumps in the arms of spiral galaxies are said to be star nurseries where modern stars are condensing from the clouds formed by earlier explosions. How do scientists explain the existence of spiral arms? They claim a gravitationally powerful, invisible, black hole causes the stars to orbit around it. The clumps are lined up because density waves push the stars into lanes as they orbit in the opposite direction to the sweep of the arms.
The biblical account of creation is remarkably different. According to the Bible, Elohim completed creating the shamayim and the earth (erets) first. Shamayim is a plural word for skies, in this context it refers to the galaxies. Modern translations leave out a word in Genesis 1:1, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Like alpha-omega, it means everything. Elohim finished creating everything in the plural galaxies and the earth first. However, at that stage the Earth was formless and empty, not extended in space. Then Elohim continued to command light to continue to be. Evidently that is when formless matter began to have extension in space. Indeed, the properties of matter are related to light that dithers around within atoms, giving them their ability to take up space.
The stars were formed half way through the creation week. Elohim continued to command lights to continue to form in the spreading place in the plural heavens. The Hebrew word for spreading place is raqiya, the noun form of the verb to spread out (raqa). He continued to form the Sun, Moon and stars and continued to place them in the spreading place, raqiya, according to Genesis 1:14 - 19. Isaiah 44:22 tells us that God actively spreads out the plural heavens and the Earth in unbroken continuity. In Isaiah 40:26 He continues to call the stars to come out and none are missing.
The sequence of creation and biblical cosmic history, are visible. We observe that the earliest galaxies were often dwarfs, without starry arms. The blue clumps in the arms are not orbiting in the opposite direction of the sweep of the arms, as scientists claim. We observe at many ranges and examples how the stars came out, moved out, spread out, followed each other out in lanes as billions of galaxies grew into huge growth spirals. We observe that the earliest galaxies shone at tiny fractions of the frequencies emitted by modern atoms. The stars in the arms of spiral galaxies often shine with different colors than the core of the galaxy. Evidently the star streams accelerated concurrently with the accelerating atomic clocks. What could cause galaxies to grow from the insides outward? All matter in the universe is changing in an orderly, together (relational) manner as recorded in the Greek verbs of Romans 8:19 - 22.
Biblical creation is unlike scientific galactic stories. Scientists admit that their universe is almost 99% invisible. They speculate mathematically that four times as much invisible matter exists as the visible variety. They make up ad hoc stories about invisible holes, vacuums that stretch light and vacuums that pull energy out of the vacuum to stretch the vacuum of space, thus pushing galaxies away from each other. All these stories were contrived to protect the creed of all scientists. Scientists believe that atoms yesterday were identical to those from today.
Two photos are combined in the above picture, both are courtesy of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. The multi-armed spiral is NGC 1073, whose light shines at 99.6 % of the frequencies of modern atoms. Why do the arms bifurcate at specific points? NGC 1073 has four quasars (IXO 5, J024333.6+012222, QSO B0240+011, and VV96PKS 0241+011) near the Y junctions in the arms. They shine at much lower frequencies that the stars in the arms. Is this an accidental alignment? Are they really far behind the arms they seem to be associated with or were they part of the bifurcation process?
The inset in the upper right is Hubble Ultra Deep Field galaxy 3031, which is also a face on spiral, but with only two arms. It is about one sixtieth the angular size of NGC 1073. Both arms in the primordial galaxy are emerging from one end of a bar. The arms are made of distinct separate clumps, like beads in a necklace. A yellow sibling galaxy shines at the end of one arm. The atoms in this primordial galaxy shine at 42% of the frequencies of modern hydrogen. Why does this galaxy only have spiral arms connected to one end of its bar? Did the bars form as the galaxies grew?
The plural heavens (shamayim) declare the glory of God and the spreading place (raqiya) shows His handwork. We see at all ranges a biblical creation and biblical cosmic history. Yet scientists cannot allow that what is visible is real. Their structured way of measuring and mathematicating was built on a single assumption, that all things remain the same (2 Peter 3:3 - 6). Yet we can see that matter continues to change relationally as galaxies grew into huge growth spirals. Elohim will make foolish the wise of this age, the scientists, as He promised. They contrive myths about invisible things to protect their basic creed that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging. Look at the sky and observe the glory of His creation, exactly as recorded in the Bible.
