Our Created Solar System
1 hour and 28 minutes
- Our Solar System: Evidence for Creation, a presentation at the 2006 Seattle Creation Conference. This presentation goes through each planet in our Solar System (and a few of their moons), and shows how each one discredits evolutionary theories in a different way. Includes about 100 beautiful photos taken from various space probes and the Hubble Space Telescope.

Our Created Solar System is a concise examination of the solar system and all its traditionally identified planets (including Pluto, which lately has been declared not to be a planet after all), and a review of certain information that will no doubt surprise most viewers. Throughout this presentation, Spike Psarris leads his viewers to the inevitable conclusion that the solar system must have been created, and cannot have come into being by any of the mechanisms that evolutionary astronomers have proposed.
Psarris has tailored his presentation to a non-technical audience. The facts he presents include many that most people learned in elementary school (or "lower school" and early "middle school") in the 1960's and 1970's.
The surprises come from facts that most people do not learn. These include a discussion of the favorite theories of the creation of the solar system (and also of the Earth-Moon system), and how these theories required a modification bordering on the fanciful to attempt to explain certain inconvenient observations. Especially welcome are his revelations of the findings of Project Apollo and the further research that this series of crewed explorations of the Moon made possible.
But Project Apollo is not the only project whose findings Psarris discusses. Project Voyager also figures prominently, since virtually all that we now know about three of the gas-giant planets we derive from the data from the two deep-space missions of that project.
The only weakness in this presentation is that it offers no explanation for the origin or formation of comets, asteroids, or meteoroids. He does make great sport of the repeated invocations of collisions with asteroids to explain certain features of most of the planets that evolutionary astronomy cannot explain. But these small objects, representing as they do a degree of randomness that would seem out-of-place in a "very good" solar system, beg explanation.
Nevertheless, all things considered, this video is a valuable introduction to the solar system, for those wanting a non-technical survey of what we know about the planets--and about what evolutionists think they know, but do not.
