The Heavens Declare – Venus

Today we’re continuing our series through the solar system and eventually beyond, showing the majesty of the Creator. Venus is the topic today, and like before I’ll give a brief summary of the planet, how it disrupts evolutionism, and it’s perfect placement in declaring Gods glory.

Venus

In all the research I did on Venus the same thing kept coming up, the closest thing to Gahanna we’ve seen. I have to say, after looking through the pictures, I agree. It’s not the kind of place you’d want to visit. Venus has always been called our ‘sister planet’. Secularists believe Venus was made at the same time as Earth, and out of the same material. The planet is certainly close to the same size and mass as Earth. That seems to be where the similarities end. Venus’ surface temperature can reach 900°F, with an atmosphere of mostly carbon dioxide, and sulfuric acid rain.

Lava-flow-on-Venus

Venus is another enigma in the evolutionary models, as its surface shows no signs of weathering you would expect to see after billions of years. The planet is covered in lava flows, rather than being cold and dead, it’s very much active. Two other unexplained facts about our supposed sister planet are that, unlike Earth, Venus has no moon and no magnetic field. Secularists have suggested that at some time in the far distant past Venus had a moon, but an asteroid hit it. They also suggest that the surface of Venus was somehow resurfaced and that is why it appears young. There is no evidence for either of these suggestions.

Venus-Earth-side-by-side

What was Gods purpose for creating Venus, besides confounded those wise in their own conceit? There’s a reason this planet was named after the Roman goddess of love. Those viewing this planet before modern technology saw how beautiful it was in the sky. Venus is sometimes the Evening Star, appearing as the sun sets, and sometimes called the Morning Star appearing right before the sun rises. Venus is a spectacular piece of the heavens which Declare Gods glory!

Deuteronomy-10:14

I want to once again point out that the purpose of this series is to encourage the brethren. For many years now believers have been told science proved the Bible false. The point of these blogs is to simply give a more logical perspective to those holding fast to scripture. Science is a tool, it can not prove anything any more than a wrench can prove your car is broken down. When viewed through the full picture, with all the evidence, I hope you will all see that evolutionism is not a fact, and you can trust Gods Word. As always friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Venus wouldn’t show signs of weathering because it’s surface is constantly undergoing a creation and destruction process similar to the one found on Earth (see: Plate Tectonic Theory and the creation of new oceanic and continental crust; also, see: Volcanism).

    While you research and these, please read about the Green House Effect on Venus’ atmosphere.

    1. Hello again Catherine, I appreciate your input, however Venus does not have multiple plates like the Earth. It has one plate with tectonic behavior, very different from what we find in the Tectonic Theory. Even with the Volcanism found on Venus secular scientists expected to find evidence of weathering. Of course, there is no reason, if Venus is billions or even millions of years old, that there should be any activity. Remember that for the evolutionary model to work these planets all need to be old, cold, and dead. While the Green House Effect if fascinating it does not give any evidence for ages of the planet. Most secular astronomers admit Venus’ surface appears young, which is why they insist something radical must have happened to resurface the entire planet. That is, like much of the evolutionary model, totally based on assumptions not observable science.
