Solar system unique?!?!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas @ 17:52

I read with interest today a post on Slashdot about the solar system entitled: “New Study Shows Solar System is Uncommon.”

Here is their blurb about it:

“Research conducted by a team of North American scientists shows our solar system is special, contrary to the accepted theory that it is an average planetary system. Using computer simulations to follow the development of planets, it was shown that very specific conditions are needed for a proto-stellar disk to evolve into a solar system-like planetary system. The simulations show that in most cases either no planets are created, or planets are formed and then migrate towards the disk center and acquire highly elliptical orbits.”

No surprise there to those of us who believe God created the universe and chose earth as the home of those created in his triune image. Although in the study suggests that this has anything to do with God and implication is there. Of interest is the comments and rebuttals by committed atheists among the Slashdot community. I wonder how they will respond when they stand before the judgment seat of Christ. “Look Man, acknowledgment of Your existence was contingent on probability projections and we didn’t have enough data.” “Deep space is deep, Dude. I’m no astrophysicist. How could I know?”
