Sadly, NASA has entirely capitulated to evolutionary fables since the Apollo 8 astronauts read the Genesis account of creation from space on Christmas eve, 1968. NASA states that a major goal with the James Webb Space Telescope is “to look deep into space to look back in time” in order “to see the very first stars and galaxies that formed in the early universe” (“Frequently Asked Questions Lite,” jwst.nasa.gov). This is Big Bang mythology. The prime contractor, Northrop Grumman, says, “By extending our knowledge of the cosmos, the James Webb Space Telescope will play an important role in our quest to answer compelling questions such as: ‘How did the universe begin?’ or ‘When were the first stars and galaxies created?’ or ‘How do planets form?’ and ‘How do we fit in the cosmos?’” We would make the following observations: First, the Big Bang is scientifically goofy on its very face for those who have eyes to see: that everything came from nothing, that the greatest explosion ever conceived produced incredible order, that life came from non-life (spontaneous generation), that intelligence rose from non-intelligence. I don’t need a Ph.D. in science to know that this is whacky. There is zero scientific evidence for the evolutionary theories of the origin of life. These theories are not based on established science but upon unproven presuppositions, presuppositions piled upon presuppositions, and an entire encyclopedia of “just so” stories. Evolutionary theories of the origin of life are contrary to everything man has ever seen or proven. Many scientists, in fact, believe the Bible, because its account of creation is logical and the Bible has never been proven unreliable. (See Scientists Who Believe the Bible, a free eBook available from www.wayoflife.org.) The prophecies of Jesus Christ that predated His birth are irrefutable evidence of the divine nature of the Bible. Nothing NASA has ever discovered as a scientific fact has disproven the Bible in any point. Second, the creation of the JWST is evidence that the Bible’s teaching about man is true. He is made in God’s image and is not an evolved anything. He is an entirely different type of creature from the animals. Third, the space telescopes have provided evidence that the Bible’s teaching on the incalculable vastness of the stars is true. The Bible likens the stars to the sand as something that is “innumerable” (Heb. 11:12). That was not known by ancient science, but the prophets who wrote the Bible knew it, and it has been confirmed by modern science. Fourth, if the evolutionary hypothesis is true and the universe is the product of blind chance and “natural forces,” then man has no ultimate purpose and no future. He is an accident of nature, and when he dies, he is finished. Extinguished. Snuffed out. If evolution is true, NASA is an exercise in vanity. It doesn’t matter what space telescopes find. Nothing matters. Of course, no one lives his life as if evolution were true. I suspect they don’t really believe it. Fifth, modern scientific skepticism is evidence that the Bible is true. It was prophesied 2,000 years ago by Peter. “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men” (2 Peter 3:3-7).
