This blog series contains excerpts from "A Twisted History: Genesis and the Cosmos" -

Last year brought a spectacular confirmation that binary star systems predominate in our galactic neighborhood, and that they are capable of generating viable planets.

The image below shows a star system that was previously thought to be a binary, but has now proven to be a triple star system with the help of improved telescopes and imaging techniques.

The below image shows an embryonic binary star system that has been in existence for only about six millions years.  The newly operational multi-national ALMA telescope array located in the high desert of northern Chile was constructed to study this and other developing star systems, and gives us our first "real-time look-in" at a planetary world in development.

(The above article contains a very cool simulation of the development of twin planetary systems.)

The next image is that of a more widely separated binary system, and one in which the gravitationally bound stars have their own proto-planetary discs that rotate in different planes.

In the study that follows, it will be shown that the double-star origin of our own solar system is preserved in a very unexpected place, that is, the Book of Genesis.  We will also discover that Genesis not only provides a descriptive model of our own solar system's formation, but a comprehensive picture of where intelligent life formed in our galaxy.  It is this latter subject that we will explore first.
