February 2020 Sci News reported on this galaxy XMM-2599 discovered about 12 billion light-years away.
Astronomers using the Multi-Object Spectrograph for Infrared Exploration (MOSFIRE) at the W. M. Keck Observatory have discovered an ultramassive galaxy 12 billion light-years away from Earth. The unusual galaxy, named XMM-2599, formed stars at a very high rate and then died; why it suddenly stopped forming stars is unclear.
As I have reported many times in the past, the big bang paradigm is a priori accepted as truth and whatever is discovered is fitted into that story-line. In this case it is another of those objects that is simply too big too early in the alleged history of the big bang universe.
“More remarkably, we show that XMM-2599 formed most of its stars in a huge frenzy when the Universe was less than one billion years old, and then became inactive by the time the Universe was only 1.8 billion years old.”
Dr. Forrest and colleagues used spectroscopic observations from the MOSFIRE instrument to make detailed measurements of XMM-2599 and precisely quantify its distance.
Sometimes you hear about a story that is so ‘way out’ there that you just cannot possibly believe it could be true. It is so bizarre that you think that only some conspiracy nut would believe it. But what if I told you a story, which begins about a hundred years ago, that resulted in what most of the modern-day scientific establishment believes in regards to the origin of the Universe? But the following is just a story. You can call it historical fiction if you like. Call it ramblings of a mad man if you must!
The story begins with a journalist who uncovers a story that very few believe to be true nowadays. What he found is very different from the usual story. The usual story that journalists feed us is that the Universe started off in a big bang 13.8 billion years ago and since that time stars and galaxies formed and eventually our solar system formed about 5 billion years ago.
From that, about 4.5 billion years ago, the planet we call home cooled from the solar nebula and eventually oceans and dry land formed. Following that in some ocean spray, or maybe near a deep-sea vent, life began all by itself, and over the ensuing billions of years all life evolved to its current state. This usual story though is really all fiction. So what is really the truth?
What if I told you that that story was the invention of a secret (or dark) religious fraternity that wanted to deceive the world’s scientists and the general public? What if I told you that their story was a total fabrication designed to give a scientific gloss to a pagan belief system? What if I told you that that story is now accepted as scientific dogma and has replaced the real truth in the minds of most humans currently alive on planet Earth today? And as a result, most of the world believes in a total fictional story. Most of the world believes in a story about as far from the truth as you could imagine. Once the world believed in true history. That has now been supplanted by the efforts of that dark fraternity, which continues to work behind-the-scenes to maintain their fiction in the minds of the wider community.
One hundred years ago a young man, Albert Einstein, while working in a patent office in Bern Switzerland, developed a radical new theory, a geometrical way of describing space and time and, in particular, it described how the presence of matter affected measurements of those quantities. For mathematicians and scientists working to try to understand the structure of the Universe its introduction brought a revolutionary perspective. It introduced a way to interpret newly obtained observational data from the cosmos, that is, newly obtained in the early 1900’s.
Astronomers were starting to realise that the Galaxy—our Galaxy, which we call the Milky Way—was not the only galaxy in the Universe and that all those nebulae, which were previously thought to be clouds of stars, gas and dust, were in fact more galaxies outside of our own. Quickly the picture of the Universe changed. New large telescopes gave unprecedented amounts of more data, precise measurements of the locations, brightness and other optical properties of these newly realized galaxies. As a result the thought began to emerge, that perhaps these new data meant that mankind could find its own answer to the age-old question of, not the structure of the Universe, but more importantly, the origin of the Universe.
On December 13, 2015 John Gideon Hartnett shared his personal salvation testimony at the Church at Moonta (South Australia). This was part of several testimonies at the event entitled “The Wonderful Works of God” (Acts 2:11).
The [New Age related] news clipping you sent me claiming that we, humans, are all gods I believe is utterly deceptive and of Satan. Though, what the author states is not really anything new. It is very ancient. The idea started in the Garden of Eden when the Devil tempted Adam and Eve, telling them that they could become as gods, knowing good and evil. Read Genesis chapters 2 & 3.
It is a lie of the Devil that says “you are god” (Genesis 3:5) or “god is in you”. That is not so. God is extant to His creation. We are part of His creation. Can the created say to the Creator ‘we are gods’? No, but that is the lie of the Devil.
Jesus called the Devil a liar from the beginning of time.
You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44, KJVER)
David was born a male but for about a decade before his conversion to faith in Jesus Christ he lived as a female. He had the whole conversion as he describes HERE in his own testimony, and can be found on his own website.
In the beginning, at the Creation of the world, God made them male and female.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27
It was Adam and Eve. Eve was created by God from Adam’s rib, taken from his side. God created them equal, yet different, with different roles. Unfortunately, nowadays with a departure from the clear biblical teachings, gender identity has become a big issue for many in our society. Read Male and female He made them… where David’s doctor published David personal testimony of his trans-gender story and his restoration back to the man God had intended him to be.
David’s testimony is a clear indication of the power of God to regenerate and heal his creation.
Biblical texts which have been used by some creationists to argue that Scripture supports expansion of the universe were reviewed. To suggest that these texts describe cosmological expansion of space, with galaxies being spread out like the often quoted rubber sheet analogy, is not justifiable and is pure eisegesis. The straightforward meaning is God constructing the heavens above and the earth below as a description of His preparation of a habitat for man. Once the stars were placed in the heavens they were to remain as a constant for all time. (Edited and updated from an article first published in Journal of Creation25(2):125–127, August 2011, which is also availablehere.)
We have been told, since Hubble’s discovery in the late 1920s, that the universe is expanding. Hubble found a proportionality between the redshift in the light coming from relatively nearby galaxies and their distance from Earth. This relationship has since been strengthened and extended to very great distances in the cosmos. This has been interpreted to mean that the space that contains the galaxies is expanding and that the galaxies are essentially stationary in that space, but being dragged apart as the universe expands. Often, the rubber balloon analogy is used—galaxies stuck on the surface as the balloon is blown up—which illustrates space expanding and the galaxies being pushed apart from each other (and also that there is no centre, no special place uniquely for us in the universe; figure 1). Nowadays, the expanding big bang universe is considered to be established dogma.
