Part 2 of series “Redshifts and the Universe”
Watch Part 1 here.
Edwin Hubble’s observations in 1929 led to the conclusion that the universe is expanding, but is that the correct interpretation of extra-galactic redshifts? The standard big bang model derived by Friedmann and Lemaitre gave Hubble a solution to his dilemma but did he really believe that cosmological expansion was the correct interpretation for the redshifts he observed? Clearly he did not believe in the Creator and was repulsed at the idea that the universe might have a unique centre and that we might be somewhere near that.
This is the part of my personal testimony where God begins to rewire my brain and where I almost instantly become a biblical creationist by reading the early chapters of the book of Genesis. The Holy Spirit spoke to me showing me that what the Bible describes as real history makes much more sense that all the big bang cosmology and all the evolution and the millions and billions of year ages for the earth and the universe.
I tell more of my story of how I continued to seek the Lord and of my journey around Australia, in 1974, which led me out of the Roman Catholic Church. I sought for the baptism and power of the Holy Spirit because I desired to be a witness for my Lord. I outline my meeting with other Christians and the Children of God and finally my infilling of the Holy Spirit. This involved my commitment to the Lord to forsake all else to serve Him and Him alone. All the glory to God.
I describe in brief my path to meeting the Lord who saved me. He chose me. He changed my mind and caused revolution in my heart. Thank the Lord! All glory to God!
I outline what redshifts are and how they are used as a distance measure in the Universe. The usual practice is to equate redshift to expansion of space then in an expanding universe the greater the redshift the greater the distance in the Universe. That is known as the Hubble law. But can this be justified from laboratory experiments? How sure are we that the universe began in a big bang? Does it all come down to our interpretation of what redshifts are?
I just watched this documentary. It is powerful. Buy it! You won’t be disappointed!
The movie has been available since October 20th 2015. Order it now. More Information
Creation Ministries International (CMI) undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses.
It culminated in 2014 with the completion of a milestone book, and a 96-minute DVD documentary, both called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels.
The Achilles’ heels of evolution are often in the very areas widely considered to be impregnable strongholds of this belief system. These areas are the topics systematically covered in both the book and the documentary. They are:
- Natural Selection
- Genetics and DNA
- The Origin of Life
- The Fossil Record
- The Geologic Record
- Radiometric Dating
- Ethics and Morality
We believe evolution theory has no answer to these weaknesses, once properly explained and understood. The book is like no other work that we are aware of, in that it is authored exclusively by nine Ph.D. scientists, including myself, to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. The documentary involves even more PhD scientists, 15 in all, and features striking footage and brilliant computer animations. All of these scientists received their doctorates from similar, secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in various relevant fields.
