Webb Telescope Discovers Early Galaxies
Nasa’s James Webb Space Telescope has found two bright galaxies that are said to have existed between 350 million and 450 million years after the birth of the universe. The brightness and the structure of the galaxies threaten to bust the assumptions associated with the big-bang theory.
These galaxies would have to have started coming together maybe just 100 million years after the big bang. Nobody expected that the dark ages would have ended so early.
— Garth Illingworth, professor emeritus of astronomy and astrophysics at University of California–Santa Cruz
Our team was struck by being able to measure the shapes of these first galaxies; their calm, orderly disks question our understanding of how the first galaxies formed in the crowded, chaotic early universe.
—Erica Nelson, University of Colorado
Debunked: Scientists expected to find the evolution of the universe from a disorderly cluster to the meticulously organized galaxies as we see them today. The theory of a “crowded, chaotic early universe” is increasingly debunked. (Learn more: “Has the James Webb Telescope Already Exploded the Big-Bang Theory?”)
Fact checked: But what fails to prove the big-bang theory confirms the biblical record. Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 2:4 reveal that God created the Earth and the heavens (plural). God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), and His creation proves this.
