Evolution Says....

The solar system formed 5.0 billion years ago, with the Sun and all the planets in their place. Life has also evolved.

The Facts Are .....

Fact #1

The data sent back from the Magellan spacecraft as it scanned the planet Venus amazes scientists.

The data revealed a landscape with evidence of neither crater degradation, nor highly eroded terrain, nor local volcanic activity. The lack of ancient terrain is surprising as it indicates that the planet is young. [1]

Fact #2

Photographs taken of a volcano on Jupiter's moon, Io, by the Voyager space probe in 1979, indicate that the moon is geologically active. If Jupiter and its moons were formed 5 billion years ago, the moons should have become cold and inactive long ago. This continuing volcanic activity indicates that the moon, and therefore Jupiter, are not that old. [2]

Fact #3

In the 1980's, the Voyager 1 & 2 spacecrafts took close-up photos of Saturn. They showed that the planet actually had many hundreds of rings in its 255,000 Km halo. Reflectivity tests on the rings suggest that the particles which make them up are most likely coated with fine, dust-like ice.

Micro-meteoroids would gradually erode and darken the particle surfaces, and even if they were pure ice they would be blackened after about 100 million years. Evolution demands that the planet is 5

billion years old, but the data from the space probe gives an upper limit of 100 million years to the rings. If Saturn had its rings when it was formed, then it is not 5 billion years old. [3]

Fact #4

Analysis of the data collected from Uranus by Voyager 2 in 1986, has led to the planet being classified in the same class as Neptune. Its composition is somewhere between the hydrogen and helium rich planets of Jupiter and Saturn, and the rocky, metal and oxygen rich planets of the inner solar system. The planet's composition is not what was expected, based on the evolutionary model of the origin of our solar system. The model predicts that the lighter elements should increase with the planets distance from the vaporizing heat of the sun. Uranus, however, contains heavier material like Jupiter and Saturn, which are both closer to the sun. Neptune contains even heavier material still. The evolution of the solar system is undermined by these findings. [4]

Fact #5

Evolutionists have proposed a theory that the Saturn’s rings were formed from a breakup of one of its moons. Astronomer Wing-Huan Ip (Max Planck Institute for Astronomy), concludes from analysis, that this is not feasible. The moon would have to be 100 kilometres wide and would have to be shattered by a comet of at least 2 km in diameter. Ip calculates that the chances of such a ring-forming event happening is one in 30 billion years. This is twice the assumed age of the universe and probably could not have occurred. [5]

Fact #6

The presence of life on Mars is not a proven fact. Even after the Viking I planetary module examined Mars' surface in 1976, argument about life on the planet has not abated. One experiment formally concluded that there was no life in the soil. Another experiment's results could be explained by either biological or non-biological processes. Mars cannot be conclusively used as an example of the evolution of life in the universe. [6]

Fact #7

The evidence for a huge shadowed human face on Mars has largely rested on the existence of a 'city' nearby. However, imaging specialist Gene Cordell found that the 'honeycomb' patterns which were supposed to be the 'city' were actually caused by the film processing technique - they were not on
