This week, continuing our series on the solar system, we are going to discuss the Moon. Like we have done previously, we’re going to talk about the Moon, Gods purpose for it, and how it refutes evolutionism.
In comparison to Earth, the Moon is roughly as wide as the USA. It’s the only other celestial body that human beings have stepped foot on, and if you have a telescope and know where to point it, those foot prints are still up there. That’s because there’s no weather on the moon. The Moon turns in a way where we see only one side of it, some people call that side the Man in the Moon.
What was Gods purpose for the Moon? The easy answer is that it’s the light provided for the night. That’s true enough, but did you know that the Moon is an important piece making the Earth inhabitable? The Moon creates the tides in our oceans, those oceans provide more than just food. Almost half of the air we need to breathe is provided by underwater plant life. God created a spectacular system for us, and the Moon plays an important role in that system.
The Moon also provides many problems for evolutionism. The main one is that, based on laws of physics, the Moon must be moving away from Earth. Don’t worry, it’s a very small amount unless you are looking back millions or billions of years, in which case you have a problem. There is a distance close enough to the Earth where the Moon would be broken up. So we know there is a limit to how close the Moon could have been, and by running that clock backward we see that there’s no way the Moon could be millions, or billions, of years old.
Another evidence for the young age of the moon is the impact basins and ghost craters. These are areas on the maria side of the Moon where collisions caused the crust to fracture and allowed molten lava to flow out. The ghost craters are thought to be caused by further impacts that were smaller and covered in the lava flow. Oddly enough, secular scientists suggest it took 500 million years for the lava to decide to flow out and fill the basin. This is not a problem for the creationist, however, who believe the impacts happened over a short period of time.
In conclusion, God the great Creator made the Moon for many reasons, including making Earth inhabitable. It’s also for signs and seasons. It does not fit into the evolutionist’s models for the solar system and gives clear evidence for a young age. Beloved, we can stand firm on Gods Word. As always, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved.
