Review by Greg Neyman
In an article on the Creation, Dinosaurs and the Flood website, young earth creation science advocate Charlie Liebert discusses the star of Bethlehem.1 To his credit, Liebert says this is his opinion, and he may be wrong.
Liebert refers to several planetary alignments in the fall of the year 2 B.C. While I don't doubt that these events may have occurred, the year is wrong for the date of our Savior. He needs to back it up several more years, to 5 B.C. In another research article by an astronomer (Liebert is a chemist), the 5 B.C. date is explained, and backed up with Biblical correlation. During that year, a bright comet appeared. To read more of this fascinating study, click here.

If you are not a Christian, and you have been holding out on making a decision for Christ because the Church always preached a message that was contrary to what you saw in the scientific world, then rest assured that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and you can believe in Christ and receive salvation, while still believing in an old earth.
