Newly Found Galaxy Making News
Though the galaxy has been there all along, scientists have just now found it. The article declaring the discovery (USA Today, November 2, 2017) said, “Using one of the world’s most powerful telescopes, scientists announced … the discovery of a distant galaxy… named G09 83808, it was spotted with the powerful Large Millimeter Telescope in Mexico, a high-precision time machine, that can see images of galaxies.”
That’s obviously very exciting, but then the article referred to the “Big Bang” and declared that this new galaxy was about “12.8 billion years old.” However, USA Today did quote the scientists as saying: “our best guess is.”
Any rational thinker (without the “reprobate mind” of Romans 1:28) knows that all big bangs (explosions) routinely and consistently create rather violent destruction, not well-ordered and non-functioning debris. Explosions do not construct entities; they destruct whatever they impact.
Furthermore, the “12.8 billion years old” nonsense is without authenticity. As for scientific, historic dating of ancient things and events in millions and / or billions of years, secular-humanists always add a decimal point and a number to make you think their computations are precise and accurate. Such declarations are totally nonsensical posturing, or dare we call it “fake science.”
And, when they say “our best guess,” they have tipped their hand. They are guessing – nothing more – just guessing.
As Bible-believing Baptists, we stand firmly and unashamedly and factually on the truth of Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
So, don’t let the static emanating from the atheistic presuppositions of the evolutionary, God-denying crowd worry and fret any of you. However, you should be thankful for the great telescope in Mexico reaching deep into space, because it reveals just how really special our Great God’s creation is!

Psalm 92:12-15 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
