Where Science and Faith Converge

TNRTB Classic: Astronomers Assess the Age Debate

By Jeff Zweerink - November 22, 2012

In 2009, Dr. Hugh Ross and Dr. Danny Faulkner presented their best astronomical evidence for their positions on the age of the universe. Dr. Ross presented a case for an old universe and Dr. Faulkner, for a young universe. A panel of astronomers, all evangelical Christians, assessed the evidence and issued a statement explaining which position they believe best fit the data and why. It was their “professional judgment that the weight of the evidence overwhelmingly supports a universe that is billions of years old.” You can read their summary here: Special Edition TNRTB: Astronomers Assess The Age Of The Universe
