(CHRISTIAN POST) -- Old Earth Creationist and Christian astronomer Hugh Ross has argued that a new scientific study into the stages of Earth's formation aligns with the creation story in Genesis in the Bible, particularly when it comes to day four and the light in the sky.
"A new research study published in Astrophysical Journal affirms that a haze was at least partly responsible for the pervasive translucent skies that shrouded Earth during the first part of its history," Ross wrote on his Reasons to Believe website on Monday.
"Genesis 1 and other biblical passages also describe the early atmosphere as hazy and clouded. The same study demonstrates through a series of experiments how Earth's atmospheric haze lessened greatly," he added.

The study, published by The American Astronomical Society in May, explains that it investigated "the effect of O2 on the formation and composition of aerosols to improve our understanding of haze formation on the Neoproterozoic Earth."
