Hot Jupiters Should not Exist

Our own Jupiter is a massive gas giant that orbits the sun in just under twelve Earth years, and its rotation gives it a day of about ten hours. There are exoplanets (planets outside our own solar system) that are called "hot Jupiters" because they are massive and close to the stars they orbit. There are problems for secularists.

A hot planet in another solar system causes problems for secular astronomers committed to billions of years and faulty planetary formation models.

Since they have hog-tied themselves to materialism, secularists are committed to the Big Bang and deep time. Luck must have been a lady because they feel lucky that they found these hot Jupiters. Although star and planet formation models consistently fail to explain scientific facts and observed evidence, they fallaciously select the best of the worst and assume that the star and planet must be ten billion years old. Because cosmic evolution.

Like the folks who try to tap dance around the implications of dinosaur soft tissues and DNA, secular astronomers and cosmologists have serious problems trying to uphold the ancient universe paradigm. They would have fewer brain strains if they would accept the truth that God created the universe recently. Observed evidence and real science would fall in line much better.
Astronomers have discovered a Jupiter-sized extrasolar planet (exoplanet) orbiting so close to its host star that it is “perilously close” to the distance where it can be torn apart by gravitational forces.
. . .
This particular “hot Jupiter,” designated as NGTS-10b, is about 1,000 light-years from Earth. Planets with smaller orbits take less time to go around their host stars than do planets with larger orbits. NGTS-10b orbits its host star in just 18 hours! Or to put it another way, the length of its year is less than one Earth day! This is the shortest orbital period yet observed for an “ultra-short period” hot Jupiter planet.
