The Shrinking Comet

11 Aug 2013 by Joseph Tan-


Comets are balls of ice and dirt which orbit the sun, often in highly eccentric orbits. A comet's tail (or tails) is an indication that comets cannot last forever. The tail means that the comet is losing material; a comet gets smaller every time it orbits the sun. In fact, it loses so much of its material that it could not survive much longer than about 100,000 years. Many comets have typical ages of less than 10,000 years.




Since we still have a lot of comets, this suggests that the solar system is much younger than 100,000 years. This agrees perfectly with the Bible. Clearly, 4.5 billion years would be an absurdly inflated age for comets.
