Easy there! Hop off your high horse. I got off of work and had some things to do that kept me off my computer. Sheesh!
Ok, where do we start? You claim that the universe''s "old age" is an unchallengeable tenet of science, *or* astronomy to be more precise.
Let''s start with the planets. You believe that they condensed from swirling dust clouds, right? If that were the case, they should have many similarities. This is not the case, obviously....
All planets should spin in the same direction. Venus, Ur****, and Pluto don''t. All 72 moons in the solar system should orbit their planets in the same sense, but 8 have backward orbits. The orbits of each of these moons should lie in the equatorial plane of their planet, but like our own moon, many have highly inclined orbits. Because the Sun is 98% hydrogen and helium, the four closest planets should have a very similar composition. Earth, Mars, Mercury, and Venus instead have less than 1% of those gases.
There is so much evidence in the favor of a young solar system and a young earth that you seriously should pick a specific topic *or* discipline and we can stick to it for a while. I suggested planets just for a starting point. What do you think?
