Young Solar System

Moon Dust and Debris – If the Moon were billions of years old, it should have accumulated a thick layer of dust and debris from meteoritic bombardment. Scientists were concerned that astronauts would sink into a sea of dust, but instead very little meteoritic debris was found. In fact, it was estimated that hundreds of feet and even a mile of thickness would be present, however, after examining rocks and dust brought back from the Moon, scientists learned that only about 1/67th of the dust and debris has even come from outer space.


Existence of short-period comets – The origin of the comets in our solar system is a great mystery from an old universe perspective as they degrade rapidly. While evolutionary astronomers once thought the Oort cloud could account for all comets, the Kuiper belt has been revived to explain their existence.


Existence of unstable rings around planets like Saturn. Rings are not stable and will not last. –Slusher, H. S. 1980. Age of the Cosmos. Institute for Creation Research. pp. 65-72.


Planetary Magnetic Fields – Presence of magnetic fields around solar system bodies (Mercury, Jupiter’s moon Ganymede, Neptune, Uranus) without an obvious internal dynamo. No natural process is known which could sustain a magnetic field around these bodies – their magnetic fields should have decayed out of existence if they ever had any.


Recession of the moon from the earth. The moon is moving away from the earth gradually due to tidal activity. This movement is too fast for the earth-moon system to be 4.6 billion years old. –Huse, S. M. 1993. The Collapse of Evolution. Baker Books. pp. 41-42.


Shrinking sun – Sun may be shrinking a few feet each year. Can’t extrapolate this trend back to the past very far without effecting earth’s environment. –Hinderliter, H. 1989. The Shrinking Sun. Design and Origins in Astronomy. Creation Research Society. pp. 107-112.


Absence/shortage of solar neutrinos. Nuclear fusion in the sun’s core should give off neutrinos. Experiments have not detected an adequate number of neutrinos – this is a well known problem. Some creationists have argued that this implies solar heat is due to gravity and not fusion – this would imply a young sun.

–Hinderliter, H. 1989. The Shrinking Sun. Design and Origins in Astronomy. Creation Research Society. pp. 113-125.


Continued presence of small meteorites in the face of the Poynting/Robertson effect. Poynting-Robertson effect should sweep the solar system clean of small particles.

–Slusher, H. S. 1980. Age of the Cosmos. Institute for Creation Research. pp. 55-64.


Extensive tectonic activity on Jupiter’s moon Io. Inadequate heat sources for a small moon so far from the sun to still be geologically active.

–Ackerman, P.D. 1986. It’s A Young World After All. Baker Books. pp. 41-45.


Rock flow and lunar craters – Rock flow should have eliminated old craters on the moon.

–Ackerman, P.D. 1986. It’s A Young World After All. Baker Books. pp. 49-53.


Heat level of the sun’s corona. Not sustainable for a long time period.


High concentration of Uranium-236 on the moon. Should have decayed.


High concentration of Thorium-230 on the moon. Should have decayed.


Tumbling of asteroid Gaspra. Should have stabilized.
