A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

For the first time, astronomers have detected a signal from stars emerging in the early universe some 14 billion years ago.

They may also have detected mysterious “dark matter” at work.

Using a radio antenna not much bigger than a refrigerator, astronomers discovered that primordial suns began to shine about 180 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was created.

“Finding this minuscule signal has opened a new window on the early universe,” said astronomer Judd Bowman of Arizona State University, the lead author of a study published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed British journal Nature.

Telescopes cannot see far enough to directly “see” such ancient stars, Bowman said, but the stars can be detected by the faint radio waves they emitted.

In order to reduce unwanted radio waves from our noisy Earth and across the galaxy, researchers chose a remote spot in the Western Australian desert to set up equipment to detect those faint signals from the early universe.

It’s basically as difficult as “being in the middle of a hurricane and trying to hear the flap of a hummingbird’s wing,” said Peter Kurczynski, a National Science Foundation program officer who supported the study.

“These researchers with a small radio antenna in the desert have seen farther than the most powerful space telescopes, opening a new window on the early universe,” he said.

The signal also showed unexpectedly cold temperatures and an unusually pronounced wave, the Associated Press reported. Astronomers said the best explanation was likely the elusive, so-called “dark matter,” a substantial part of the universe for which scientists have been searching for decades.

“If confirmed, this discovery deserves two Nobel Prizes” for both capturing the signal of the first stars and potential dark matter confirmation, Harvard University astronomer Avi Loeb, who wasn’t part of the research team, told AP.

Like virtually all other astronomical discoveries, this latest one provides additional evidence for an universe, not so long after its “beginning”, on the astronomical timescale (Genesis 1:1). All the actual scientific discoveries made thus far, including this one, provide more and more evidence that the universe had a beginning.

In spite of this overwhelming evidence, however, atheists and skeptics continue to perpetuate bogus information that suits their fancy, however, namely that the universe had no beginning. The Bible said it came from nothing. “The entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen” (Heb 11:3 NLT).

“Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities . . . have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made”. But especially now, with all these scientific discoveries confirming what the Bible said all along “so that people are without excuse” (Rom 1:20 NIV).

One thought on “NEWLY RECEIVED RADIO WAVES EVIDENCE OF GENESIS 1:1

  1. I am happy to provide a commentary on this essay.

    RT1: An article in USA Today entitled “Signal received from far reaches of early universe” reports:

    GW1: You should provide the full citation for the article, including author/s, volume number, date, and page numbers.

    A1: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

    A1: For the first time, astronomers have detected a signal from stars emerging in the early universe some 14 billion years ago.

    GW1: It would have been approximately 13.52 billion years ago.

    A1: They may also have detected mysterious “dark matter” at work.

    GW1: The hypothesis of dark matter has been around for at least 20 years.

    A1: Using a radio antenna not much bigger than a refrigerator, astronomers discovered that primordial suns began to shine about 180 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was created.

    GW1: Think about that! If there were suns at that early time, then there were probably some planets around some or most of those suns. Any intelligent life which arose on those planets would be billions of years more advanced than us, if it still existed.

    A1: “Finding this minuscule signal has opened a new window on the early universe,” said astronomer Judd Bowman of Arizona State University, the lead author of a study published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed British journal Nature.

    GW1: I think it is an important discovery.

    A1: Telescopes cannot see far enough to directly “see” such ancient stars, Bowman said, but the stars can be detected by the faint radio waves they emitted.

    GW1: Yes, I understand this.

    A1: In order to reduce unwanted radio waves from our noisy Earth and across the galaxy, researchers chose a remote spot in the Western Australian desert to set up equipment to detect those faint signals from the early universe.

    GW1: That was a really good idea.

    A1: It’s basically as difficult as “being in the middle of a hurricane and trying to hear the flap of a hummingbird’s wing,” said Peter Kurczynski, a National Science Foundation program officer who supported the study.

    GW1: That seems likely.

    A1: “These researchers with a small radio antenna in the desert have seen farther than the most powerful space telescopes, opening a new window on the early universe,” he said.

    GW1: Excellent work!

    A1: The signal also showed unexpectedly cold temperatures and an unusually pronounced wave, the Associated Press reported. Astronomers said the best explanation was likely the elusive, so-called “dark matter,” a substantial part of the universe for which scientists have been searching for decades.

    GW1: These new findings may support the hypothesis of dark matter.

    A1: “If confirmed, this discovery deserves two Nobel Prizes” for both capturing the signal of the first stars and potential dark matter confirmation, Harvard University astronomer Avi Loeb, who wasn’t part of the research team, told AP.

    GW1: I agree.

    RT1: Like virtually all other astronomical discoveries, this latest one provides additional evidence for an universe, not so long after its “beginning”, on the astronomical timescale (Genesis 1:1). All the actual scientific discoveries made thus far, including this one, provide more and more evidence that the universe had a beginning.

    GW1: This only supports the hypothesis of the Big Bang as the start of expansion, not the beginning of our universe. It is more likely that our universe itself, defined as “all orderly-dynamic energy-matter in space-time” is eternal. Thus, once again this new evidence is equivocal.

    RT1: In spite of this overwhelming evidence, however, atheists and skeptics continue to perpetuate bogus information that suits their fancy, however, namely that the universe had no beginning.

    GW1: In spite of the equivocal evidence, however, theists and deists continue to perpetuate bogus conclusions which suit their fancy, namely, that the universe had a beginning and was created by a god.

    RT1: The Bible said it came from nothing. “The entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen” (Heb 11:3 NLT).

    GW1: It is claimed in some Bible verses that the universe came from nothing, and this claim must be false. Something cannot come from nothing. That would be magic. On the other hand, it is claimed in other Bible verses that the universe came from some amorphous chaotic substance, and that God formed it into something similar to what we see today, i.e. “the heavens and the earth.” Therefore, there are contradictory Bible verses on this.

    RT1: “Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities . . . have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made”.

    GW1: The universe was not “made,” God does not exist, and thus no invisible qualities of a god can be inferred. If a creator god does exist, then from what can observe we may conclude that this god is partly evil. This god could not be God since God is conceived to be perfectly moral and not evil. The universe would look very much different, if God did exist.

    RT1: But especially now, with all these scientific discoveries confirming what the Bible said all along “so that people are without excuse” (Rom 1:20 NIV).

    GW1: Some of these new scientific discoveries are compatible with a God-created universe, but they do not confirm that hypothesis. They constitute equivocal evidence. There are several sound arguments which show that God does not exist. People have excellent reasons to not believe in God; they don’t need excuses. This state of disbelief will continue until the sound arguments against God’s existence are refuted and new good evidence, reasons, and/or arguments are presented in favor of God’s existence. Don’t hold your breath.
