Complex at the Beginning: Distant Galaxy Cluster Highly Developed
Observations from the European Southern Observatory have pointed to a “surprise” discovery: a cluster of galaxies 9 billion light-years away that is “in a very advanced state of development.”
The press release points to just how surprising is this find: “The discovery of such a complex and mature structure so early in the history of the Universe is highly surprising,” it says (emphasis added). “Indeed, until recently it would even have been deemed impossible.”
The evolutionist’s impossibility can be the creationist’s certainty, and vice versa. Things creationists consider impossible (such as the origin of life by chance – see online book) are routinely assumed by evolutionists. The surprise effect can help distinguish the validity of the two worldviews. Why are evolutionists so often surprised by what they find? Judeo-Christian creationists see this as congruent with the statement In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth.
