Paradigm Shifts and Globular Clusters

The word paradigm is related to worldview, so a paradigm shift is a major change in how we view the world, process information, and many of our perceptions. Interestingly, I first came across that phrase in The Aquarian Conspiracy, which supported the evolution-rooted New Age movement.

Regular readers have seen numerous reports here (which direct readers to additional information) about how secular cosmologists constantly have their views overthrown by observed evidence. This is happening with greater frequency, and there may be a paradigm shift brewing among them.

There are many times when secularists have their views overthrown by evidence. This has been increasing, and globular clusters add to their problems.

We have two articles to consider, and the first has several instances of where the expectations of secular scientists are dashed by evidence. For example, the Big Bang got things started for cosmic evolution, and the formation of the solar system is a continuation. Space probes and other things are prompting doubts. The James Webb Space Telescope is overturning naturalistic ideas and actually supports creation science! Galaxies are not supposed to be there, especially not at their level of "maturity." To read why secular cosmologists are beginning to shift their paradigms (and we can hope they stop rejecting the Creator God of the Bible), take a look at "A ‘space-view’ shift — Admissions about discoveries ‘reshaping’ astronomy and cosmology." Be sure to come back for a more detailed reason questions are being asked.

People who look through their telescopes or see images from space agencies have said that globular clusters remind them of jewels. Good picture, lackluster name. They are conglomerations of stars, densely packed at the center and no so much toward the edges. Globular clusters are assumed to be among the oldest objects up yonder. Although secular scientists insist on billions of years, they are doubting the age of globular clusters for several reasons.
Globular clusters are beautiful, spherically symmetric star clusters resembling celestial snow globes. Star density is greatest near the cluster centre, and this density drops off with increasing distance from the cluster centre. . . .

Although they do not understand how or where globular clusters formed, uniformitarian astronomers have long claimed that globular clusters are among the oldest objects in the universe, with typical ages greater than 10 Ga. In fact, uniformitarian astronomers sometimes define globular clusters as old star clusters found in the bulges and halos of galaxies. Recently, some uniformitarian astronomers have suggested globular clusters might be four billion years younger than previously claimed. But in any case, by secular reckoning, their ages are measured in multiple billions of years, and it is generally agreed that the globular clusters orbiting our own Milky Way galaxy have ages of at least 11 Ga.
