And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: and God saw that it was good.-Gen. 1:14-18

The universe was created with purpose and reason; and modern science with all of its experiments, exploration, and sophistication has never proven otherwise. In fact, as author Dr. Danny Faulkner makes plain, advanced science argues more for a created cosmology than a big bang. Written for the upper-level student through the well-read layman, Universe by Design explores the universe, explaining its origins and discussing the historical development of cosmology from a creationist viewpoint.

Includes:

  • Recent developments in cosmology
  • Explanatory diagrams and illustrations
  • Theories and facts on the origin and expansion of the universe
  • The contributions of Ptolemy, Galileo, Brahe, Newton, Hubble, Einstein, and other famous scientists to the field
  • Thorough discussion and problems with the big bang theory
  • Many examples and analogies to help understand concepts of cosmology
  • Difficulties and critiques of modern cosmology
  • Chapter questions and answers for homeschool study

As an excellent supplement to an upper-level homeschool curriculum or the library of an astronomer - amateur or advanced - this book will inform and enlighten the scientific mind.
