    Nebular theory:

    A great cloud of gas and dust begins to collect due to it's own gravity. Small concentrations of mass pull more mass in, and the debris in the cloud begins to 'fall' toward the concentration of mass, much of it going into orbit.

    The cloud gets denser, and the center of this mass begins to heat from the gravitational pressure at the core. Beyond the central mass, other bits and chunks form in the cloud, pulling in orbiting debris.

    The process continues; the larger chunks orbiting in the cloud pull smaller debris in from other orbits, and the cloud begins to flatten into a disk, all rotating in the same direction. Heat and pressure continue to build in the central mass, until it reaches the threshold of fusion - and central mass becomes a star.

    The masses in the orbiting disk continue to build as they become planets, pulling more debris from the cloud into their mass. Finally, the debris in the disk is cleared, and all the planets are orbiting in a similar plane (but not exact), and in the same direction.

    God first Clumped gas together to make it ignite. The sun! Then clouds began to Clump around the sun, making the planets.

    Perhaps do your own research, I sure won't write a book on the topic to appease anybody's curiosity, not unless it went to publishing and made a lot of money for it.

    What do you think an ant thinks about the formation of the universe? Now, consider yourself to be an ant because that's how ignorant we are.

    Spinning, searing-hot gasses that came out of the center of the Milky Way shortly after its creation by the Big Bang slowly cooled and elements so hot that they had previously all been gasses coalesced into denser bits of liquid and sold matter that, being denser, had more highly concentrated of gravitational attraction, which in turn gathered more and more matter unto them that still even further cooled, forming more solids and more liquids and and even greater density so even more gravitation pull to gather even more of those that spinning, searing-hot gas cloud, thus those various concentrations becoming the seeds of sun and the planets.

    other than God speaking it into existence, i cant ... the whole 'dust coagulating into bigger chunks' theory isnt possible ,, that doesnt work ... they tell you it does, but from everything we observe, that simply doesnt happen ..

      Scientists have observed it. That's how they know that nebulae are the "nurseries" of new stars.
