The existence of comets today presents a problem with the Big Bang Theory. Astronomers believe comets were formed at the same time as everything else in the universe. The tail of a comet is debris coming off of it (ice and dust). There are short-period comets which last no more than 10,000 years and long-period comets lasting up to 50 million years. If the universe is billions years old, why do we still have comets? They should have disintegrated long ago. For a comet to have lasted earth’s supposed 4.6 billion years it would have had to begin with a mass 10 to 19th power of our sun! Just imagine a comet 10 times the diameter of our sun. Now 10x10x10…nineteen times. That’s a big comet! The numbers just don’t add up. Either the numbers are wrong or the theory is wrong. Both come from the same “experts.” Maybe it happened just the way God said it did in Genesis chapter one.
