The miracle of stardust

Stardust is supposed to be a miracle substance.  The following quote is how prominent cosmologist, Lawrence Krauss, explains it,

“The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded.  And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand.  It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust.  You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution – weren’t created at the beginning of time.  They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way they could get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode.  So, forget Jesus.  The stars died so that you could be here today.” Let’s look at this miracle stardust.

#  How did the first stars form? 

  • Basically the ‘science’ is that stardust comes from the big bang and exploding stars. It is said that stars formed from clouds of gas that were compressed by an exploding star, a supernova.
  • The problem is that stars are needed to form stars and the stardust.  But the origin of the first stars remain a mystery. 2  So where does the stardust come from?

#  The ‘stardust’ in the Periodic Table

  • Anybody who studies the Periodic Table will understand how precise the elements with their different atomic weights, et cetera, are.  It is remarkable in its very high precision.
  • The public is asked to believe that the stardust in all its complexity (elements represented in the Periodic Table) evolved by chance from stars whose origin remain a mystery.
  • But, for the world at war with the Creator God, these kinds of ‘miracles’ like stardust that formed humans, are everyday stuff.  Wave the wand of evolution, and presto, it is done.

#  How wise and intelligent can stardust be?

  • As Krauss says, stardust precisely formed humans.  That should include the earth, water, clouds, land, plants, birds, fish, animals, diamonds, et cetera.
  • That is the so-called ingenious wisdom and intelligence of the evolution of stardust: it ‘created’ all life on earth.

#  The hero: stardust!

  • Did stardust really accumulate in the right proportions of the right elements to form life?  Thousands of researchers cannot prove in the laboratory that life began naturally.  Yet stardust did it.  What a miracle!
  • Did stardust design the precision of the genetic code, the DNA, and the ATP energy producing machine in living organisms?
  • What about the immaterial mind in humans?  Was all that done by the hero, stardust?


  • As we quoted Lawrence Krauss, ‘Forget Jesus.  The stars died so that you could be here today,’ terming that the most poetic thing he knows in physics. 1,3
  • Just to demonstrate the foolishness of believing that nature has a mind and creative ability: stardust will lead those who believe in it to a terrible future of eternal remorse and torture.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
