Sun is shrinking too fast for Big Bang to be true

According to astronomers, the sun is shrinking (albeit very gradually). Its diameter is shrinking by a rate of almost 0.2 second of arc per century. This means that the sun would have been twice its present size less than ten million years ago. 100 million years ago, it would have made the earth’s atmosphere far too hot to sustain life. 200 million years ago, it would have touched the earth! How do these calculations reconcile with the evolutionist assertion that the earth is some 4.6 billion years old? Clearly, they do not.

  1. New measurement data suggests that the sun may not be shrinking as much as previously estimated. The missing neutrinos which initially suggested shrinkage appear to have been found (or at least explained). If this data proves accurate, I will remove this post in the interest of intellectual honesty. Of course, sun shrinkage is not the only (or even the best) evidence against the universe being billions of years old.
