NASA discovers unexplained light; finding an answer in Genesis

How intriguing is this?!

“ About a month before the great December conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, NASA researchers announced a separate, unexpected discovery: evidence of light in deep space without an explainable source. After studying photographs taken by the New Horizons space probe, which is now 4 billion miles away but still beaming footage to Earth, NASA came across an unexplained “glow.” It was in areas particularly distant from the known sources of light, such as stars and galaxies, and from sources of reflected light, such as dust particles. In fact, one astronomer told NPR that the amount of unexplained light was about equal to the light coming from sources they could identify.

The NPR article described the “problem” this creates for scientists: “… for 400 years, astronomers have been studying visible light and the sky in a serious way and yet somehow apparently ‘missed half the light in the universe.’” The choice astronomers face is either to double-down on the known explanations for light or be open to new ones.

I’m no astronomer, of course, and I certainly won’t pretend to know more than those who’ve dedicated their lives to studying the heavens. However, it’s worth mentioning that an additional explanation for light is found in Genesis. If the testimony of Scripture is, like science, considered an actual source of knowledge, rather than a book of religious metaphors and self-help, light was the first thing created by God, in order to form and fill an earth that was “formless and empty.” Maybe knowing that light preceded existing physical objects points to a different explanation for those especially empty corners of the sky that seem to mysteriously “glow.”

    Hey Christine! I don’t know if you’ve ever listened to Chuck Missler, but he is all over stuff like this. You can find him on Youtube. He starts from Genesis and that is some of the most interesting stuff! He did make a point that scientists have discovered that the universe does have an end (even though it’s constantly expanding). So, if it has an end then we, earth, time, space, etc. are simply a subset of something much, much larger. He also explains how God can see the beginning and the end of everything at the same time. Interesting stuff.

      Thanks for sharing that Steve! I have heard of Chuck Missler but I now need to check out his work.

      In my 66 years on this earth I’ve seen more and more proof that the Bible is true and us lil’ ole’ people… no matter how high an IQ, education or knowledge one has…still need to honor God and realize our place in this world.

      I love ❤️ to learn about more evidence that Scripture is true! I enjoy my earthly little life and having my Savior and His Word to guide me. It’s ok to acknowledge the fact that each one of us can hardly even attempt to learn enough to try to “catch up” to the eternal wisdom and knowledge of our awesome God!

      May you be blessed by our wonderful Savior Jesus, my friend!

    We already know that we are a subset of something much, much larger. What we don’t know is if there’s a sentient, directing intelligence behind it, or responsible for it.
    “God” is a placeholder, covering for our ignorance until we learn the facts.
