One major point he has failed to grasp is that the 'redshift' is not caused by the stars
[galaxies really] moving away from us.
It's instead caused by the space between us and them expanding, and stretching the
light as it passes through it.
Also the Cosmic Microwave Background CMB is a very uniform temperature because the [visible]
universe started out very small and so could equalise in temperature before expansion kicked in
and spread everything out. This means that there is absolutely no problem with the fact that light
has not had time to cross from one side of the [present day] visible universe to the other to explain
the even temperature as the temperature evened out before expansion really kicked in.
Also, he gets what the CMB is wrong.
The CMB is light emitted from the primordial plasma as it de-ionised to form [mainly] hydrogen gas.
The plasma was hot [by definition] and thus was emitting light, however plasma is also opaque and
so this light could only start travelling across space at the point in time where the plasma cooled enough
for the electrons and protons to combine together to create neutral hydrogen atoms.
The visible universe was about 300,000 ly across when this happened, and the light has taken about 13.8
billion years to reach us because the space in between has expanded. this has also stretched out that light
and shifted it from visible to microwave, and from a temperature in thousands of degrees to a temperature of
Consequently when he says that one of his proposed 'solutions' 'explains' the CMB he is incorrect, because
he doesn't understand what it actually is.
EDIT: Oh Dear... He's now claiming that it's impossible to measure the 'one way' speed of light, that
we can only measure the speed of light by bouncing light off of something and timing it's journey there
and back... Which is total bunk, I know of several experiments that measure the 'one way' speed of
light and can design one no problem at all. It's in fact trivial to do so.... And is now misquoting Einstein.
Well to be fair he's quoting some other creationists misquoting Einstein...
EDIT 2: Basically the kid is just parroting this guy... http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Jason_Lisle
Who should know better, but apparently doesn't.
Jason Lisle's 2010 paper published in the Answers Research Journal (meaning, despite his apparent confidence in its explanatory power and his doctoral education in astrophysics, that he was unwilling to submit to peer review - any ideas as to why?) aims to solve the starlight problem by taking advantage of a quirk of physics--it isn't certain, after 70 years of discussion, whether a "one way" speed of light can be measured or is a convention. Lisle thus proposes that light traveling towards the Earth does so at an infinite speed while light traveling the other way goes at half the measured speed; which is not original to him. Thus it becomes possible for light to arrive from distant stars in line with the 6000-year chronology of young Earth creationism (and equally well, or perhaps even better, with Bertrand Russell's deliberately ridiculous five minutes ago hypothesis) even though we still measure the speed of light as a fairly lumbering 299,792,458 m/s.
The problem with Lisle's proposal is that it results in a geocentric universe and would create observational differences which have not been seen, in addition to violating the endlessly validated physical principle of isotropy; that is, that the laws of physics behave the same way in all directions.
Just a note, if the 'one way' speed of light thing were true, there would be no delay on satellite or interplanetary communications.
There is a delay, thus it isn't true.
