Light from "First Stars" Supposedly Detected

Some secular astronomers are excited about light from the "first stars" in the universe that they supposedly detected. The research took several years, and they put a great deal of work into it. This was based on the presumption that the Big Bang was the origin of the universe, and this light was to have been emitted at the "cosmic dawn" several hundred years after the event. It is indeed unfortunate, since secularists know that their cosmology is useless.

The astronomers took many precautions, and wanted to make sure they were not getting readings from Earth or from the galaxy. Unfortunately, the results had a "dip" that was different than predicted, the results include the fallacy of affirming the consequent, and several unwarranted assumptions were made. Good science does not involve making pronouncements that require further evidence like they did in this case — models are dependent on the information provided. Once again, we see a great deal of time, money, and fallacious science used to deny the Creator.
“Astronomers detect light from the Universe’s first stars” is the headline of a Nature news article, which appeared 28 February 2018. It relates to observations made by a team of astronomers led by Judd Bowman of Arizona State University in Tempe. The team published their results in Nature the same week. According to Bowman,
This is the first time we’ve seen any signal from this early in the Universe, aside from the afterglow of the Big Bang.
They used a small radio-telescope situated in the Western Australian desert, far away from human settlement to minimize interference from radio signals generated by human technology.
