The Hubble Space Telescope has taken literally thousands of images of
the cosmos. This one example shows a beautiful nebula name NGC 3603
that is about 20 thousand light years away. The stars within this
massive cluster have varying masses but very similar ages, allowing
astronomers to conduct detailed analysis of several types of stars at
different stages in their lives. By comparing this cluster of stars
with other clusters in the galaxy at different ages, astronomers have
been able to determine the changes in properties, such as temperature
and brightness, the stars go through as they age.
accepted ages of the stars among astronomers are millions to billions
of years old. Among creationists, however, the creation of the
universe, which include the stars, only happened 6 thousand years
Is the universe billions and billions of years old or is it
only 6 thousand years old as is claimed by biblical creationists? Do
current dating techniques of these stars used by astronomers
accurately portray their real ages?
