Also, according to their speculations, comets formed billions of years ago with the rest of the solar system, but comets have erratic orbits (many of them retrograde), so those ideas are far-fetched, even on the surface. Keeping the faith, secular astronomers are ignoring the evidence and now thinking that exocomets will bolster their belief systems, even though the evidence supports creation.
Astronomers recently detected evidence of possible comets orbiting a faraway star system named β Pictoris. They compared what they saw to what our solar system may have looked like billions of years ago when the earth and moon were supposedly forming out of a chaotic debris cloud. But details from their report easily refute this imagined "planetary-system formation," and instead illustrate how God recently and uniquely created space objects.To finish reading, set your course for "Exocomets: Evidence of Recent Creation".
Publishing in Nature, French and Israeli scientists analyzed eight years of data collected by the HARPS instrument on the European Southern Observatory's telescope in La Silla, Chile. The instrument measured tiny variations in the star's spectrum, which these astronomers believe to be caused by 493 comets orbiting β Pictoris as they passed between the star and the telescope's lens. The star system lies over 63 light years from our solar system. It can be seen inside a small, southern constellation called "Pictor," taken from a Latin phrase meaning "painter's easel."
