Binary stars present a problem for evolutionists defending the Big Bang Theory. A binary star is two stars bound together by gravity and spinning around a common center. 90% of all stars are binary. They must consist of an “old” star and a “young” star. All stars were formed at roughly the same time after the Big Bang (according to evolutionists). Astronomers say they only appear different ages because one aged faster than the other. Is it not equally possible for all stars to have aged faster thus making them appear to be billions of years old? Consistent and predictable science depends on everything being constant from the beginning. The cry of uniformitarianism is: “the present is the key to the past.” How can one star age “faster” than one next to it? How can we trust any conclusions drawn from this assumption which is nothing but a guess? There is one source of reliable information which never changes or has to be adjusted because of conflicting evidence or new discoveries—the Bible.
