Dr. Don DeYoung discusses secular theories about the moon’s origin and explains that it could only have been put in orbit by a Creator.

Our Created Moon   (PT 1 OF 3) 

The moon is exactly the correct size and distance from the sun to make a solar eclipse possible

Solar eclipse

As seen from the Earth, a solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. This can happen only at new moon when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth in an alignment referred to as syzygy. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is obscured.

The Uniqueness of the Moon

The moon has a number of distinctive characteristics. It is both 400 times smaller and 400 times closer to Earth than the sun is. This means that the moon and sun have about the same apparent size in our sky on average.

This makes total solar eclipses possible. Earth is the only known planet that can experience eclipses where its moon so precisely covers the sun. This has made possible the discovery of the solar chromosphere. The chromosphere can only be seen by eye during a total solar eclipse.

The moon is exactly the correct size and distance from the sun to make a solar eclipse possible.

This didn't happen by accident over millions of years. Those who deny God will tell you it is just a coincidence. Secular astronomers will also tell you this is because the moon is getting farther away from the earth, about 4cm a year. Then again millions or billions of years are thrown in to explain why.


People who believe in evolution can't explain how things evolved over millions of years so they leave it up to your imagination. In doing so they hope you will accept their lie of evolution. In the case of a total eclipse its a little different. Athiest astronomers give you a number, 4cm a year, and want you to believe the moon took millions or billions of years to be where it is now so a total eclipse can occur by coincidence.   A total lie.

The moon: the light that rules the night   (

The moon was a precise design by God.

Precise design can be seen all around us.

When you observe the solar eclipse of Aug 2017 stop and think about how this is possible.

Psalm 19:1-3  King James Version (KJV)

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
