That Hot Exo-Neptune Should Not Exist

Once upon a time, it was dark and there was nothing. Suddenly, nothing exploded for no reason. This gave us an orderly universe with predictable planetary patterns, and eventually atoms-to-astrophysicist evolution. But the naturalistic origins myth is continually being shown to be just a fairy tale.

An exoplanet has been described as a hot Neptune that should not exist. Secular scientists cannot explain it, but biblical creation can do so.

Materialistic cosmologies expect order and predictability from the Big Bang, but our own solar system belies those notions. We have planets and several moons out yonder that rotate in a manner that doesn't fit secular models. For that matter, secularists have trouble explaining why the composition of the inner planets is rocky, outer planets are gas giants, then rocky stuff out even further. Then there's that gigantic wall of superhot plasma that surrounds our solar system like a bubble. 

No, don't let secularists buffalo you when they pretend they have everything figured out.

"So what about that hot Neptune thing, Cowboy Bob?"

Good timing, that was next. There are, in astronomical terms, bunches of exoplanets. That is, planets beyond our solar system. Secular astronomers are constantly being surprised because exoplanets are recalcitrant to their expectations and predictions. They've found gaseous "hot Jupiters" orbiting close to stars and got used to that idea. They have atmospheres and are usually expected to hang onto them.

A "hot Neptune" should not exist at all, but they found one and it has an atmosphere. That should not exist, either. It should not be there after billions of Darwin years, but there it is. Mayhaps they should cowboy up and discard their presuppositions of cosmic evolution and deep time? After all, evidence persistently points to recent creation.

An exoplanet 260 light-years away is being described as the first of its kind ever detected.1,2 This exoplanet, catalogued as LTT 9779b, is called an “ultra-hot Neptune” because of its large size and nearness to its host star. This exoplanet is so close that its surface temperature is over 1700° Celsius, and the length of its year—the time it takes to orbit its star—is just 19 hours! Astronomers think the planet lacks a solid surface and that its atmosphere is substantial, about 9% of the planet’s total mass. But the atmosphere is so hot that, by secular reckoning, it should not exist:

The system itself is around half the age of the Sun, at 2 billion years old, and given the intense radiation, a Neptune-like planet would not be expected to keep its atmosphere for so long, providing an intriguing puzzle to solve; how such an improbable system came to be.

To read the rest, set course for "Hot Neptune Atmosphere 'Shouldn't Exist'". Another short article of interest is "This Exoplanet Shouldn’t Exist".
