Star Clusters in spiral galaxies are missing millions of years worth of collisions

Cosmologists who accept the Big Bang model naturally predicted that because spiral galaxies are, allegedly, at least hundreds of millions of years old, and the large ones were made by mergers of smaller galaxies, that therefore the bulge of stars in the center of the spirals would have formed from millions of years of collisions. However, astronomers carefully studying those bulges have found that 1) often, they are not bulges at all, and 2) they exhibit a perfect orderliness in the trajectory of the stars. As reported in the New Scientist article, "Galaxies too good to be true," Princeton University cosmologist Jim Peebles added that, "It's really an embarrassment."

Cosmologist John Kormendy admitted that the prinstine bulges, "were something of a shock." For they, "look rather too perfect." The Real Science Radio hosts Bob Enyart and Fred Williams recommend two videos that highlight these kinds of important discoveries. Spike Psarris, formerly with the U.S. military space program, created the greatest astronomy DVDs ever made, Vol. I about our Solar System, and Vol. II about Stars and Galaxies. Also, thanks Creation magazine for alerting us to the above spiral galaxy cluster findings. As reported for years on the RSR broadcast and podcast and as at, those who believe in materialist origins are forever dismayed, shocked, and even call the latest discoveries "horrendous," because scientific observations typically contradict the fundamental predictions of atheistic origins.

The public's confidence is misplaced in the claim that scientists have figured out an atheistic origin of the universe, for in reality, even under their own theories that were devised in order to explain the formation of the universe, in moments of clarity they admit that they can't explain galaxies. Rather than having a robust theory that stepwise explains the origin of stars and galaxies, materialists cannot even say whether stars formed before galaxies, or whether galaxies formed before stars. John Maddox, physicist and 23-year editor of the journal Nature, admits on page 48 of his book, What Remains to be Discovered, that scientists don't even know, "Which objects came first, stars or galaxies?" Thus evolutionists oversell the evidence for the big bang to the public, and neither for Earth nor for space can they answer the chicken-or-egg dilemma. So while big bang cheerleaders like theoretical physicist (emphasis on the theoretical) Lawrence Krauss told us here at that, "All evidence overwhelmingly supports the big bang," the Albert Einstien professor emeritus of science at Princeton, Jim Peebles, said that the pristine star trajectories in the bulges, "is wildly unexpected in the standard model."

Here's the Point: Predictions are the hard currency of science. When the data contradicts big-picture predictions in an enormous way, as with galaxies-worth of contrary evidence from trillions and trillions of stars, the scientifically-minded student of nature will then reconsider the validity of the original model which led to the erroneous predictions, especially when this happens repeatedly.
