The Big Bang Of Information

Cosmological Big Bang: the common scientific hypothesis of the origin of the universe.  Last month, Robert Brayton brought us an alternative explanation of the origin of the universe anchored in Genesis 1. There are a number of serious conundrums in the cosmological Big Bang theory that have never been resolved.

The ten billion dollar James Web Space Telescope was designed to solve some of these problems, but in fact it has added deeper challenges to the cosmological big bang theory. For example, JWST showed that most of the "oldest" (most red-shifted) objects appear fully formed without the expected intermediate stages. Furthermore, JWST showed the cosmological dark age that the common model requires are not found. Finding insurmountable problems with the common model strengthen our belief that the universe is deliberately designed and very finely tuned to provide an environment for life.

The origin of life is equally inexplicable.  

On December 1st, Mr. Brayton will present on the Big Bang of Information. Information is not a physical entity although information is frequently stored in a physical medium. The information stored in the DNA in every biological cell provides the tools for the molecular machinery in each cell to build and operate, and to enable living systems capable of reproduction. Human DNA stores more than three billion bits of information arranged in multiple dimensions. Such high levels of organization in the molecular machinery and the information storage and control systems is the very opposite of random and unguided evolutionary systems commonly taught. In contrast, these vastly complex molecular machines are characteristic of systems designed by a very high level of intelligence.

This strong implication of intelligent design has been recognized for a long time. Further living self-replicating systems built from nonliving chemicals suggests the activity of an intelligence far beyond the human mind and will. The Institute for Creation Research (ICR) has begun a long term research project of a new concept of Continuous Environmental Tracking (CET) that is expected to provide a much better explanation for the development of complex living systems of great variety in a much better way than the commonly taught theory of biological evolution. CET is a fascinating and exciting new development covered in this presentation.

Robert Brayton is an inventor (two U.S. Patents), engineer (Compaq, HP), and professional photographer (CPP, Photographic Craftsman, Professional Photographers of America), volunteer (Insperity Observatory Assistant Director, NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador, Civil Air Patrol, ICR Discovery Center), guest speaker (Houston Astronomical Society, North Houston Astronomy Club, Greater Houston Creation Association, Gulf Coast Mensa), and Mensa. He is currently helping astronomers with the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis to develop a creationist science view of protostar development. 

Please plan to join us on December 1st, at 7:00 pm in the Reception Room at Houston's First Baptist Church, or by Zoom (link provided in the red border above). Invite your friends and church leaders - all who desire to increase their understanding of Biblical creation science are welcome. Questions and time for discussion will be provided at the end of the presentation. Snacks and refreshments are provided for those attending in person.

Looking forward to seeing you all,

NEWWebinar Registration Link

Due to Zoom changes GHCA will be using a Webinar Registration Link in our newsletters. Clicking on the Webinar Registration Link will open a form that requires your name and email address. After one fills in that information and clicks the Register button, Zoom will send you an invitation email providing the Webinar Link that can be used to join the webinar at the time of the meeting. This email will also include an "Add to Calendar" link that might be useful. However, GHCA always mails out a copy of the newsletter on meeting day which will be easy to find. It will be a good idea to register at least15 minutes before meeting time. If anything goes wrong one can always go back to the newsletter Webinar Registration Link and try again.

GHCA meeting location:

Reception Room of Houston's First at 7401 Katy Frwy, Houston TX 77024. See our maps at

Examples of Important YEC Scientific Evidences 
Some major examples of physical evidence we point to include:
  • Remains of original soft tissue still found in dinosaur bones. Along with that tissue is C-14 that would decay completely away in less than a hundred thousand years, a tiny fraction of the dinosaur fossil's supposed age.
  • For many years geologists have found C-14 in fossil carbon throughout the fossil record. So, the entire fossil record is less than 100,000 years old.
  • The origin of the information and molecular machinery in the first living self-reproducing cell remains a complete enigma for biologist and biochemists.
  • In the origin of the universe, big bang theory is being recognized as a dead end by increasing numbers of secular scientists. The hypothesized inflation has nothing to start it, drive it forward, or stop it. Without inflation fatal flaws appear with the absence of predicted antimatter, magnetic monopoles, or any means for the whole universe to come to the same precise background temperature. Then the formation of the first stars is as enigmatic as the origin of the first biological cell. Dark matter and dark energy are as enigmatic as the galactic motions they are needed to explain.
At the root of all standard science are many assumptions that may be quite incorrect. At the top is that there is no God. Another is that present process can be used to explain everything in the past. When we look at a canyon we are taught to assume the river at the bottom cut the canyon. But perhaps tectonic events made the canyon and there is a river at the bottom because water always flows downhill. At the root of big bang theory is a pure assumption that has been named the "Cosmological Principle". Perhaps inaccuracies there are responsible for the big bang's multitude of problems.   
There is more about the role of assumptions in science found on our website here. There are many more resources on young earth and young universe evidences here.
