Want to know the quickest way to confound an opponent of creation? Bring up the Oort cloud. Secularists believe there is a magical place far out in the Solar System called the Oort cloud that is secretly birthing new comets. They use this imaginary rescuing device to explain comets that are losing large chunks every time they orbit the sun. Obviously these comets are young, and thus in their thinking there must be a creative source shooting out new comets. The problem is there is ZERO observed evidence of this Oort cloud. It doesn’t exist.
Silly me, I thought secularists were evidence-based! To them, the fact that comets exist IS the evidence of an Oort cloud. Isn’t that circular reasoning? That’s like saying “the fact that we exist is proof of natural causes”. No, it’s not. Want to hear how this even gets sillier? They teach it in our public schools! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating a theocracy or even creationism in schools per say, but their mantra is not consistent. They don’t want creation in schools because it has “zero evidence” and is “faith-based”. Well… on that logic, what about the Oort cloud? How is that any more scientific?
Of course the Oort cloud is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things that are taught as science that are honestly faith-based. They will use fancy terminology like “hypothetical” – yeah, that just means imaginary. They are teaching imaginary, faith-based material as science in public schools while telling you that you can’t possibly consider teaching creation. Have fun with that one! 🙂
By the way, comets were created on day four of creation approximately 6000 years ago. The Hebrew word for “star” means bright, heavenly body – which would include comets. This explanation is consistent with the evidence we DO observe.
