I'm submitting this from creationwiki -- the original was entirely my work. However, creationwiki migrated their servers early 2006, so all edits made before that time (including the submission of this article) were removed from the page history. You can confirm this by looking at the page history and noting that the first edit was an article change, not an article creation. Ungtss 11:30, 23 June 2007 (EDT)

I think this is a silly article. CP should not treat astrology as science. The author switches at random between various statistics about orbits to get numbers close to the golden ratio. But even then he hardly manages it: 13% error is extremely high for a game in which the author gets to choose what he divides in the first place. The fact that all of these go up roughly exponentially is probably related to the Titius-Bode law, itself somewhat mysterious, but at least observed in some systematic way. If one wants to use the geometry of the solar system as part of a creationist argument, I would point to Titius-Bode as a better place to start. But that's a job for someone else. --MarkGall 16:01, 3 October 2009 (EDT)
