Measurements of a pulsating white dwarf star confirm RTB’s cosmic creation model and argue against a young cosmos. Scientists measured the rate of change of a spinning white dwarf exhibiting the most stable optical pulsations of any known astronomical object. The spin-down rate matched predictions from cooling rates in white dwarf models, thereby confirming its history as a burned-out star. These results provide additional support that scientists have a good understanding of how stars form, live, and die. Further, unless a Creator chose to put remnants of dead stars in the cosmos to fool unwitting astronomers, this result argues against a young universe.
