Today, continuing with the series through our solar system, we’re going to talk briefly about Mercury. As I said last week, I’m just going to write a small amount of the multitude of information. There’s a twofold purpose for that, firstly to show how great our God is, the God of all creation, and secondly to show that evolutionism is not a fact proven by observable science, but is instead an idea of the origins of our world that has many problems. Why does this matter? The first point is often portrayed as unreasonable by secularists who claim to hold the logical worldview, while the second point is largely ignored.
The Bible commands us, as believers, to tear down every high and lofty idea that sets itself up against the truth. The secular view of astronomy has set itself up against the truth of Genesis. My aim here is not to attack individuals personally, but to tear down the belief system behind the naturalistic explanation for origins.
Mercury is an excellent example of how impossible the evolutionary models of creation are. It’s the planet closest to the sun, and is smaller than most of the moons in our solar system, although it is slightly bigger than Earths moon. Although it is small, it’s extremely dense. Mercury also has a magnetic field that is quickly decreasing in strength. These two facts, combined with the amount of volatile sulfur, and the ice believed to be on its surface, make Mercury look young. Secular scientists cannot fit this tiny planet into their models for the creation of the solar system. Even when invoking the dynamo theory, there is no explanation for how this planet could have formed so close to the sun, millions much less billions of years ago.
God has a magnificent purpose for Mercury, as well as the other planets in our solar system. Our ability to study this planet has come at an opportune moment when it seemed as though the delusion of deep time would spread throughout every nation. It almost seems as if God placed these terrestrial enigmas in Earths neighborhood to confound those wise in their own conceit. Mercury is a planet of unexplained enigmas.
I look forward to continuing this series, friends, and hope earnestly that it is an encouragement to all believers who see this evidence. Deep time, billions of years of random chance, cannot explain Mercury. On the other hand, Genesis tells us that God created the entire universe in one day. Both of these viewpoints are impossible to scientifically prove as science is based on observation and we can never observe the events of the past. What we can see, in the present, is that secular understanding cannot explain the creation, makeup, and existence of Mercury. If you want more information on Mercury I highly encourage you to review creationist Dr. Russ Humphries scientific predictions.
Join me next Monday for a brief overview of Venus. As always, beloved, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved!
