Someone has written, “Copernicus’ parents might just deserve some of the credit for his great discovery. Apparently at the age of twelve they said to him: ‘Young man, when are you going to realize that the world does not revolve around you!’”
For evolutionary scientists, their origin-of-the-universe theory revolves around one thing more than any other, craters. They believe some 4.5 billion years ago a big bang occurred in space, spreading matter all over. Then in our solar system, the larger pieces became the planets and the littler pieces the asteroids. Eventually, over eons of time, the gravitational pull of bigger planets caused the smaller asteroids to come crashing down on them, creating craters (even killing off earth’s dinosaurs). And for the first eight planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) craters proved to be the norm. But it was Pluto astronomers were most excited about because no planet has more asteroids revolving around it than this one. And so over some billions of years, the place would have taken such a pounding that it would look like a full-dimpled golf ball. However, this past week, when we got our first close-up look of Pluto, there was not one crater to be found.
Even evolutionist, Bill Nye, who debated creationist Ken Ham, had to admit that he was in shock, had no answers, and said maybe things are much younger than thought.

Pluto was discovered in 1929 by a 24-year old astronomer at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona … Pluto is the smallest of the nine planets, being about 1/5th the diameter of the earth and is smaller than our moon … Pluto’s distance from the sun is 39 times greater than that of the earth’s distance from the same, making the sun there 2,000 times dimmer than on earth … Pluto is the coldest of the planets with an average annual temperature of -229 celsius or -380 fahrenheit … Pluto is made up of 70% rock and 30% ice with an atmosphere composed of 90% pure nitrogen and 10% methane and poisonous carbon monoxide … Pluto is named after the ancient Roman god of the underworld. In Roman mythology, Pluto was the son of Saturn who, with his three brothers, controlled the world: Jupiter the sky, Neptune the sea, and Pluto the world under … Pluto’s name was suggested by an 11-year-old girl in England, and on May 1, 1930, she received a five-dollar bill as a prize … Pluto’s gravity is such that a 100 pound person on earth would weight there, 6.7 pounds … Pluto has five moons and it takes the planet 248 years to orbit the sun … Pluto is 7.6 billion kilometres or 4.6 billion miles from the earth and so it took a space-craft traveling at 50,536 kilometres or 36,373 miles per hour (which is about a hundred times the speed of a jet plane) nine years to get there at a cost of $750 million dollars … Pluto’s first photos were taken from a distance of 12,500 kilometres or 7,800 miles away and it takes about four plus hours for the pixels to reach the earth … Pluto is the least known about of all the planets, and up until now, the total of what we do know could all be written on two small index cards … Pluto is not the last stop for the spacecraft, it will continue on out into open space for another ten years or 5 billion miles before running out of power … Pluto was created by God on the fourth day of the creation week as is recorded in Genesis 1:14-19.
