Tune in to TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) this Friday, June 2nd at 5:30pm Central to see this week’s episode of “Creation in the 21st Century.” Join David Rives as he welcomes astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner to talk about extra-solar planets. What about extra-solar planets? Have we found life on other planets? Have planets been found around other stars, and could they contain alien life? Are we being told the whole story? The answers are not as simple as it may seem. First, we have to look at the methods being used to observe these planets. Then we need to look at what data is being collected. Finally, we need to look at probability and Biblical historical texts that might give us clues as to what to expect in the far reaches of the Universe. News stories and media publicity about these planets are avoiding important issues regarding the science behind these finds.

DVD #1. “DASHA THEORY …A Starlight and Time Solution”
Watch 3 minute trailer of this DVD:
One of the most puzzling questions in astronomy: If the universe is relatively young – thousands of years – and stars are millions of light years away, wouldn’t it have taken the light from those stars millions of years to reach Earth? …and doesn’t this “PROVE” the Big Bang? Do creationists have a problem with distant starlight? Actually, starlight and time is a major problem for Big Bang cosmology. While Young Universe Cosmology doesn’t provide all the answers, a careful examination of the Hebrew word “Dasha” as found in the creation account might hold the key to understanding this dilemma.
DVD #2. “EXTRA-SOLAR PLANETS …and the Search for E.T. Life in Space”
What about extra-solar planets? Have we found life on other planets? Through the technology of today, we can peer into the outer expanses of the heavens, but out of the countless stars in the cosmos, surely there are other planets – And out of those planets, wouldn’t there be many like Earth? The answer is not as simple as it may seem. First, we have to look at the methods being used to observe these planets. Then we need to look at what data is being collected. Finally, we need to look at probability and Biblical historical texts that might give us clues as to what to expect in the far reaches of the Universe. News stories and media publicity about these planets are avoiding important issues regarding the science behind these finds.
DVD #3. “CRATERS Throughout the Solar System”
What do Craters throughout the Solar System tell us? Why do some planets have these features while others don’t? Does the far side of the moon look much different than the side we see from Earth? Evolutionists would tell us that impact craters throughout the solar system were formed over billions of years. But their relative ages can’t actually be traced to billions of years in the past. Dr. Danny Faulkner, PhD in Astronomy from Indiana University, and television host David Rives take you on a trip through our solar system. What can we learn from past impacts?

Binding: Hardback – Page Count: 350 – The Scriptures contain an incredible wealth of knowledge in what they communicate about the science of astronomy. Even more significantly, because the Scriptures are the inerrant word of God, what the Bible conveys to us about astronomy is of unparalleled importance in shaping our thinking on the subject. The Created Cosmos is an intensely detailed examination of the scriptural outlook on the cosmos, constructing an integrated understanding of what the Bible plainly teaches about astronomy, and answering complex questions about astronomy from the standpoint of a biblical worldview. This text investigates what the Bible has to say about astronomical objects and phenomena. The Bible contains many mentions of astronomical things, beginning with creation and concluding with end-time prophecies. Besides the sun and moon, the Bible names groups of stars, Orion, the Pleiades, and the bears. In addition to what the biblical record shows about astronomical phenomena, many people think that it teaches things that it actually does not teach. These concepts are examined in depth as well. Unique among books discussing the intersection of biblical text and astronomy because of the range of questions explored and answered definitive work that explores many popular questions and misconceptions about the universe and the Bible Sorts fact from fiction and truth from popular myths as the true purpose of these enigmatic lights in the night sky are revealed
