The Milky Way -- New Images

A new picture of the Milky Way is now online.

In the picture there are at least 84 Million stars -- which is wayyyyyy more than previously thought.

Previously only about 8.4 million stars were thought to be in the Milky Way. 

Now scientists say there are 84 million. 

In a few years and with even more powerful telescopes, the number will likely be even greater.

Remember, each star is a SUN and just as our sun has planets, these stars might also.

Why is this important?

Well, first of all, the big bang evolutionary old earth worldview would have us believe that all of this began from a pinpoint grain of nothing which exploded into all of this.

Hmmm.  I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

The Bible, however, says that God created all the stars (not only those in the Milky way but ALL the stars everywhere) on day Four of Creation week.

What? God created alllllll the stars everywher including the 84 million stars in our Galaxy !

And our Galaxy, the Milky Way, is just one of innumerable Galaxies. 

Yes, innumerable and that number of galaxies also keeps increasing as the telescopes get better and better.

Wow.  What an amazing and powerful Creator God !!!
