In 2004 astronomers using NASA’s, Spitzer Space Telescope, probed the dusty disks that surround young stars to look for the earliest signs of the formation of planetary systems. What they discovered coincides with Genesis description of Earth’s formation.
For generations the statement at Genesis 1:2 “Now the earth proved to be formless and waste,” has made no logical sense to Bible scholars or scientist until these revealing discoveries were made.
According to data scientist gathered from a proto-planetary disc surrounding the star system CoKu Tau 4 in the Taurus constellation, planets like Earth form in darkness from leftover waste and debris from their central star, coinciding with Genesis description of earth being formless and waste at some stage in its early development.
When you review NASA’s data on this process and compare it to Genesis brief description of Earth’s formation, the Bible’s description is amazingly accurate in view of the fact that the Hebrew word translated ‘day’ (yom) can mean various lengths of time, not just a 24 hour period.
NASA’s findings also revealed that as a planet matures inside its dusty cocoon it gradually sucks up all the dust between it and the sun. The early stages of this process correspond to the statement at Genesis 1:3 for day one. “Let there be light.” (Diffused light).
Only in the later stages of planet formation would direct light from the already existing sun, moon, and stars be visible from the earth.
This data corresponds to Genesis 1:16 for day four when viewed in the context of the Hebrew language. “And God proceeded to make (‘a•sah’) the two great luminaries…., and also the stars.” (the Hebrew word ‘a•sah’ does not mean to create, but rather to accomplish, bestow, or bring to completion).
NASA’s data clearly shows that earth formed from dust left over from the sun prior to day one. It confirms that light emerged slowly, some diffused light by day one, full light by day four where the sun, moon and stars became visible, in the exact same fashion described in Genesis.
The common perception of the Genesis account has been; the earth was created first, and the sun, moon, and stars, were created on day four. Spitzer’s discoveries unravel this long time mystery, and remove much confusion about Genesis, proving the Bible to be scientifically accurate when read in the context of its original Hebrew language.
