Sun no longer a star

August 2, 2009

Apparently, some YECs don’t consider the Sun to be a star:

I also do not agree that the sun is a star, which the author seems to believe. Genesis 1:16 says: “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” If the sun were a star, wouldn’t God have said something different? I guess we’ll find out one of these days.

So sayeth Tina Brown whose claim to fame appears to be having home-schooled six of her seven offspring. Of the moon, she notes ” I didn’t realize there were four phases or that the moon’s features had names” – one can see that her kids are getting a mighty fine science education at home.

    I suppose next she will want public schools to begin teaching this controversy.

    Oh, I was expecting this to be about the IAU getting delusions of grandeur after their success with Pluto.

    I suppose he might have, but given that he says that grasshoppers have four feet and rabbits chew cud (Lev 11), he doesn’t seem like the go-to guy for scientific details.

    Wait until she finds out there aren’t people living in her “TV machine.”

    The sky is just a carpet with lights hung off it anyway… didn’t you know?

    For some reason I just can’t see Sol as supporting cast.
