According to evolutionists, the sun and the planets formed when a rotating nebula condensed. But if this were true, then the planets should be made of the same material as the sun and should all be going in the same direction, right? Instead, when evolutionists look at the solar system, the planets are not cooperating. Evolutionists explain away these problems by saying that the planets were hit by objects, which changed the planets from the way they were originally.

Over and over again in astronomy, cosmic collisions are used like a magic wand to rescue millions-of-years ideas from the facts. The planet Uranus is tilted, but evolution says it shouldn’t be—therefore, they believe that long ago something hit it and knocked it over. Venus rotates the “wrong way”—therefore, they believe that long ago something hit it and spun it the opposite way. The atmosphere of Mars is too thin—therefore, they believe that long ago something hit it and stripped most of the atmosphere away. Mercury is too dense for evolution—therefore, they believe that long ago something hit it and removed the lighter parts.

Evolutionists wave their collision-wand at will, using it to make any necessary changes to the way planets should be. It seems that believing in cosmic accidents takes a lot more faith than believing that God created the universe!
