I suggest reading the post 4 Steps to Evolution first to best understand the point of this post, and the posts that follow.
Quoting Earth Mother Our Womb of Life:
Solar systems originate from the material which is ejected out of a supernova, an exploded sun. I use the word “explosion” as a “burst of life,” and not as an uncontrolled explosion of a human device. A sun explodes and material is hurled into space. This material, or “solar ejecta,” forms a colorful halo, a living cloud, a luminous radiance of microorganisms, vapor, and rarified gas – a nebula.
God’s invisible hands gather the material in the nebula into planets. The exploded sun forms a powerful vortex at the center of the nebula which sucks back some material, and a new, smaller sun is formed. The rotating planets grow, packing the material of the nebula into hard ice. The planets circle the sun, and the nebula is transformed into a solar system.
The above description of how Solar Systems form, quoted from the book, concurs with how science describes the process (except for the ‘living’ aspect), as demonstrated on the British Natural History Museum website:
“Throughout the Milky Way, and other galaxies like it, are gigantic swirling clouds of dust and gas known as a nebula. It is within nebula that stars are born. Our star, the Sun, was created in one such nebula.
The planets, and other extraterrestrial objects such as asteroids, formed in the flat plane of the spinning disc of dust. Electrostatic forces or sticky carbon coatings made dust particles stick together to form clusters, which in turn stuck together to form rocks. Mutual gravity caused these rocks to come together, eventually to form planets.”
It is interesting to note that while science describes a supernova as the death of a star, the same explanation is used to describe the birth of our solar system! Doesn’t this indicate a cyclical process at work?
The text below (from the NASA website) is the explanation for the pic of the Great Nebula in Orion above. I have left all the NASA links intact. I highly suggest going to the original page here, because the tiles on the photo enlarge and you can see areas of planetary systems in formation!
“How do planets form? To help find out, the Hubble Space Telescope was tasked to take a detailed look at one of the more interesting of all astronomical nebulae, the Great Nebula in Orion. The Orion nebula, visible with the unaided eye near the belt in the constellation of Orion, is an immense nearby starbirth region and probably the most famous of all astronomical nebulas. Insets to the above mosaic show numerous proplyds, many of which are stellar nurseries likely harboring planetary systems in formation. Some proplyds glow as close disks surrounding bright stars light up, while other proplyds contain disks further from their host star, contain cooler dust, and hence appear as dark silhouettes against brighter gas. Studying this dust, in particular, is giving insight for how planets are forming. Many proplyd images also show arcs that are shock waves – fronts where fast moving material encounters slow moving gas. The Orion Nebula lies about 1,500 light years distant and is located in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as our Sun.” ~ NASA
