The most exotic feature of this model comes with its unparalleled ability to dilate time. While the general process near the hydrological superstructure at the core would have taken only days to accomplish, far away, at the edge of space as it was stretched forward, perhaps as many as billions of years passed!
Ultimately, the white hole would have come to an end as the balance of the material within it transcended its event horizon. By this point, Earth, which would have been relatively near its core, would have “ascended the gravity well” of that place, entering into a chronological frame of reference that was essentially flowing at the same general pace as the rest of the universe.
The physics behind it all make a certain degree of sense. In fact, by applying a finite quality to space in light of Einstein’s general theory of relativity, we get just this: an expanding universe in which the cadence of time and all physical processes occur at differing rates depending on gravitational effects. This mirrors precisely what we would expect of a universe birthed from a dying white hole, with an extremely slow rate of time occurring nearer to the center than that further away from it, and the absence of active time all together at the pit of the well (the Euclidean zone) and at the event horizon itself. All told, given the massive gravitational forces employed and their respective effects on the fabric of space-time, the chronologies of those events are intriguing to say the least…
To an outside observer, this phenomenon would provide two perspectives. The first, from some midpoint in the gravity well, and the second from a position outside of the event horizon of the white hole, where time would have flowed much more normally. To a hypothetical observer stationed at either point, their general goings on would seem normal, occurring at the proper speeds, yet, looking towards the other perspective, something would be dramatically off.
From within the gravity well, assuming in this case that they could observe events beyond the event horizon (in reality, the event horizon would simply appear black) the happenings in the heavens above would seem accelerated, occurring at speeds that would defy reasoning and common logic. Conversely, to a hypothetical observer beyond the event horizon looking in (which in reality would appear as just a bright light), activity within the gravity well would be nonexistent, as things within would appear motionless, frozen in time. The strangeness of the effect is multiplied when we recall that time is relative: the events of a single day within the gravity well may in fact have lasted for billions of years in the rest of space, beyond the event horizon! Though the two frames of reference would seem at odds, both in fact are correct; time was flowing differently from one region to the next.
Odd as it is, there is compelling evidence that confirms the mechanism behind this type of time dilation. Studies have demonstrated that, even in the most sensitive atomic clocks of our day, there are discrepancies in their synchronization if one is situated at sea level and the other at a one mile high elevation. The one closer to sea level, you see, ticks approximately five microseconds per year slower than the one at greater altitude because the former is closer to the higher gravity of the Earth. While 5 microseconds per year may seem insignificant, consider that the difference between the gravity in these two locations is also, astrologically speaking, insignificant. Imagine if the gravitational forces were much greater. How much dilation in time could one expect?
Does the answer to the apparent discrepancies between the Genesis account and stellar observations lie in this theory? Could it be that in the beginning the matter that would come to compose the whole universe existed, for a time, within the unique dimensional confines of a white hole’s gravity well, trickling out over the course of an eternity, aging, developing into the cosmos we know, while the Earth and other younger material sat patiently within, with only days, as it were, passing there?
Hard as it may be to imagine, it is no less valid a consideration than that involving the speculative physics and conditions of the popular Big Bang theory. Technically, this scenario is known White Hole Cosmology, and it’s far more feasible than many would at first realize. So feasible in fact that some time back a mainstream journal, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, published an article suggesting a secular cosmology based on the very tenets that underlie the white hole cosmological model. 1 What the article failed to mention however was that that earlier model was developed by a creationist physicist, Dr. Russell Humphreys, in the early 1990s! 2
To Summarize the Points of White Hole Cosmology
- The universe (at only a fraction of its current size) began as the instantaneous creation of empty space-time with a massive (2 light-years in diameter) hydrological superstructure at its core, containing all of the mass the universe would come to hold
- Within the hydrological superstructure (The Deep) sat an undefined region of matter that would become the Earth
- Due to the massive weight of the Deep, an enormous black hole one thousand-million light years across formed around it in the empty space
- A gravitational distortion resulted from the activity of the black hole, forming gravity well, relativistically altering the flow of time across different regions of the early universe
- Inside the gravity well, the Deep was under great compression, and this initiated thermonuclear fusion through which many new elements were formed within the waters of the Deep
- As God “stretched the heavens,” expanding space outward in all directions, the force imposed on the black hole caused it to invert, becoming a white hole
- While the black hole was consuming the matter of the Deep, the white hole instead was expelling it
- Matter from the white hole was pulled further out into space as the heavens were stretched, ascending the gravity well, while the Earth remained within experiencing time at a much slower pace
- As the white hole expelled matter, it lost mass, and its gravitation distortion grew weaker
- Over the course of time, stars began to form in the far reaches of the heavens, as the gravitational distortion in which the earth sat shallowed and ultimate disappeared
- By the Forth Day on Earth, billions of years may have passed in the far reaches of space, allowing for the stars and other celestial bodies to appear to the inhabitants of our planet on that day
- Ultimately, through the actions of this process, Earth experience Creation Week as a series of 24-hour days, while the majority of the universe experienced a different timeline altogether
