Response Article
This article (Retrograde motion of planets disproves the big bang (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CE260.1:

If the spin of planets, galaxies, etc., came from the fact that the big bang matter was spinning when it blew up, then the conservation of angular momentum demands that all planets be spinning in the same direction. Since some planets and moons spin in a retrograde motion, the big bang is disproved.

CreationWiki response:

Talk Origins source says nothing about retrograde planets and moons, however it is agreed that it would be quite a stretch to use them against the big bang.
