Solar Flares, Radioactive Decay and the Age of the Earth

From KHouse.Org From their first books on dinosaurs, our children are told that life was evolving "millions of years ago." The majority of geologists today tell us that radioisotope dating has narrowed the age of Earth to about 4.5 billion years, give or take 330 million. Recently, two dating methods have been updated, and scientists say the earth might not be as old as they thought it was, but they may not recognize how "off" the dating Continue Reading

History of the Light-Speed Debate – Part II

From KHouse.Org [Last week we began an overview on the possibility that the speed of light has been slowing down since the beginning of the universe.  This is a continuation of that article.] Since 1987, when V. S. Troitskii argued that light speed had originally been about 1010 times faster than now, a multitude of papers on cosmology and the speed of light have shown up in journals and on the web. The theories abound as to what is Continue Reading

History of the Light-Speed debate – Part 1

From KHouse.Org When we walk into a dark room, flip a switch and the light comes on, it seems that light has no speed but is somehow infinite - instantly there.  That was the majority opinion of scientists and philosophers until September 1676, when Danish astronomer Olaf Roemer announced to the Paris Academie des Sciences that the anomalous behavior of the eclipse times of Jupiter's inner moon, Io, could be accounted for by a finite Continue Reading

Does the ‘God particle’ shed light on the Creation story?

From: Times of Israel.Com The Higgs boson discovery is illuminating, but all conclusions are premature, an Israeli physicist says To those tempted to draw conclusions for any purpose — such as evidence for the Big Bang Theory, the story of Genesis, or anything else — Rabinovici advocated patience. “It’s not a watershed discovery yet, but it could be one day, in all sorts of ways.” All of which means, said Rabinovici, that proper Continue Reading

Does the ‘God Particle’ Prove that God Does or Does Not Exist?

From American Thinker.Com July 10, 2012 Ron Lipsman The scientific world is abuzz with news of the ratification of the existence of the subatomic particle called the Higgs boson - or more colloquially, the 'God particle.' This subatomic particle's existence - which was verified recently (with virtually near certainty) by experiments at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland - lends credence to several long-standing physical Continue Reading

The God Particle Found: It’s a Boson

From KHouse.Org Scientists waited in a line 1000-persons long Tuesday night to witness the long-anticipated announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson, often called the "God particle." The elusive Higgs cannot be observed directly, but physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) believe they have gathered enough evidence of the particle's traces - its subatomic-sized "footprints" - that they can say it does Continue Reading

‘God Particle’ glimpsed at Hadron

From American Thinker.Com December 12, 2011 Rick Moran Just to get a healthy discussion going this morning, we have news from the BBC that scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider in Bern, Switzerland can barely contain their excitement over the prospect of discovering the elusive Higgs-Boson particle one of the fundamental building blocks of matter. Sometimes irreverently - and inaccurately - referred to as the "God Continue Reading

A faster than light particle?

From American Thinker.Com September 23, 2011 Rick Moran It's rare that a science story leads the news but this one is a shocker. According to Einstein's special theory of relativity, it is not possible for matter to travel faster than the speed of light.The cosmic speed limit was set in stone largely because it would take an astronomical amount of energy to exceed lightspeed. Much of modern physics is based on Einstein's work. Continue Reading

Physics and The Bible: The Terrible Flood of Noah

From KHouse.Org PHYSICS AND THE BIBLE: THE TERRIBLE FLOOD OF NOAH The 104th Psalm is a beautiful hymn about creation that complements the information given to us in Genesis and elsewhere in the Bible. Here, as in other Scriptures, the origin of the universe and our planet is not pictured as a massive explosion (such as a Big Bang) but as an orderly series of events in which everything was crafted by the hands of an artisan, a Master Continue Reading

Our Digital Universe

From Koinonia House OUR DIGITAL UNIVERSE "The entire universe is a cryptogram set by the Almighty. "   - Sir Isaac Newton Fans of the popular TV science fiction series, Star Trek, are familiar with the "Beam-me-up-Scotty" concept of "teleporting." In an Austrian laboratory several years ago, scientists were able to destroy bits of light in one place and make perfect replicas appear about three feet away. They did this by transferring Continue Reading
