Re: Preserve the gaps, so God has somewhere to live!
quote:
But physics clearly shows that stars cannot form from clouds without miraculously fortuitous events.2 In order for a cloud of hot gas to condense into a star, heat must somehow escape. The denser the cloud particles become, the hotter they get, thus repelling one another so strongly that they would never condense into a star on their own.

Creation science physics may show this but in Real Physics there is a saying:

"Gravity works in strange and mysterious ways."

Except it isn't so strange and we solved the mystery about 100 years ago. The denser the particles become, the hotter they get, and even this heat cannot overcome the relentless pull of gravity. Once the process starts it does not stop. Only when actual fusion begins can the energy produced balance the pull of gravity. Even then that energy can never overcome gravity but just hold it at bay for, maybe, a few billion years. Then ... BANG! ... gravity wins every time.

Boring Long Distances
Hey. I see in the title the words "starlight" and "distance."

While this has close to nothing to do with starlight it does at least start there.

The rest is distance. And more distance And more distance. And still more distance. And then even more distance.

Our Solar System - to scale.

Found through Pharyngula.
