16. The Sun is degenerating.
Evolutionists delighted in poking fun at creationists who, during the 80's & 90's claimed the sun was shrinking, never mind the fact that the original idea came from evolutionists (The American Astronomical Society, 1979 by John Eddy and Aram Boornazian).
Yet the Jekyl and Hyde evolutionists freely admit that the sun is burning off 4 trillion metric tons of mass every single second.
That loss of mass is not being replaced and like all other suns/stars the sun will eventually Nova. Folks, that is degeneration, not evolution.
17. Betelgeuse lost 15% of its size in 15 years.
Again, remembering the mockery we were subjected to concerning the 'shrinking sun' fiasco; it is somehow a funny joke to suggest that our sun is 'shrinking' but we are to take the shrinking of Betegeuse (much, much larger than our sun) seriously.
Quote: "The red supergiant star Betelgeuse, the bright reddish star in the constellation Orion, has steadily shrunk over the past 15 years, according to University of California, Berkeley, researchers. Long-term monitoring by UC Berkeley's Infrared Spatial Interferometer (ISI) on the top of Mt. Wilson in Southern California shows that Betelgeuse (bet' el juz), which is so big that in our solar system it would reach to the orbit of Jupiter, has shrunk in diameter by more than 15 percent since 1993.
18. Mankind has observed stars go through nova's but no one has observed the birth of a star.
All of this bespeaks of a degenerating universe, not an evolving one.
