Answers magazine starts the new year off with a bang. A really big bang! This expanded issue (116 pages), arriving in mailboxes now, exposes the fallacies of the big bang theory and shows compelling evidence for a young solar system. Astronomy lovers won’t want to miss this issue which includes many topics that are sure to please young and old alike.
The astronomy issue is a great one to give to friends, family members, libraries, and even non-Christians. Amateur astronomer, Steve Miller (also an author in this issue), plans to give many copies away during public star viewing parties he attends during the summer. He even sets up a creation book table with pamphlets, books, and magazines related to astronomy. For him, reaching astronomy enthusiasts who have been heavily influenced by evolutionary ideas is his mission field.
