The Hubble Space Telescope, searching for evolving galaxies in December 1995, focused for 10 continuous days on a tiny patch of sky, so small when viewed from Earth that a grain of sand held at arm’s length would cover that area. This picture of that tiny patch of sky is called Hubble Deep Field North. (Go to www.creationscience.com/onlinebook/FAQ15.html to view photos.) Most objects in it are not isolated stars, but galaxies, each containing billions of stars. Of the 3,000 galaxies photographed that emitted enough light to measure their redshifts, which presumably measure distance, all seemed surprisingly mature. As stated in Scientific American , “the formation of ‘ordinary’ spiral and elliptical galaxies is apparently still out of reach of most redshift surveys.” Moreover, fully formed clusters of galaxies , not just galaxies, are seen at the greatest distances visible to the Hubble Space Telescope. In 1998 and 2004, similar pictures—with similar results—were taken.
Think about this. There is not enough time in the age of the universe (even as evolutionists imagine it, times a billion ) for gravity to pull together all the particles comprising clusters of galaxies. (As explained under “Galaxies” on page 29 of Dr. Brown’s book, “In The Beginning,” clusters of galaxies cannot form, even granting all this time.) Because the most current studies show fully-formed galaxies even farther away than those shown [in the photos], creation becomes the logical and obvious alternative. We may be seeing galaxies as they looked months after they were created. Vast amounts of time are no longer needed.
