The Physical Sciences


Physics is the branch of science that studies forces, properties of matter, and the fundamental laws of nature. Physics study includes the topics of light, magnetism, heat, and electricity and has produced understanding and scientific laws regarding thermodynamics, motion, and the conservation of mass energy. Measurements within these topics and application of these laws give strong support for a young Earth only thousands of years old. They also give support to a special creation by displaying a universe that is wearing out and deteriorating rather than improving and building up.

Concepts of Thermodynamics

The scientific field of thermodynamics examines ‘heat power’ in regards to an ability to do work and the conversion of heat to other forms of energy. The laws and mathematical formulas of thermodynamics are as fundamental and absolute as science is able to produce. All things in the observable universe follow these laws including the weather on Earth driven by the heat of the sun, plants producing food using solar energy, and biological functions in the cells of the body which use heat stored in molecules.

Concepts of Planetary Magnetism

Within naturalistic origin concepts, the primary explanation of a magnetic field on a planetary scale is the dynamo theory. The dynamo theory states that a planet must have a molten metal core that has fluid motion. However, the reality of the measurement of magnetic fields does not match and cannot be explained using the dynamo theory.


Chemistry is the section of science that examines the properties, composition, and structure of elements, molecules, and compounds. There is an emphasis on how these items react, transform, and exchange energy when interacting with each other. The field of chemistry demonstrates the youthfulness of the universe through the lack of reaching equilibrium and it also shows a special creation through the existence of the medium to heavy elements.


Astronomy is the scientific study of the physical universe beyond the Earth. Astronomy is one of the oldest of the sciences, which has been used in making calendars and the understanding the daily, monthly, and annual cycles of heat, light, and gravity. There is an emphasis on the relationship of the Earth with the Moon and this solar system. Measurements of planetary density, rotation, angular momentum, and magnetic fields all indicate a young solar system only a few thousand years old. The rapid spiral movement of galaxies, lack of supernova remnants, and existence of short and long term comets show the youthfulness of the entire universe.
