    Starlight and Time with Dr. Russell Humphreys

    The Bible says the universe is just thousands of years old, and yet we can see stars that are billions of light-years away. Dr Russell Humphreys' new cosmology addresses this issue with a fresh and scientifically sound solution. Learn how practical physics using Einstein's relativity explains how light could be seen on Earth during Creation week.

    If you had even the slightest understanding of geometry, you would know that it is not possible to reconcile a young earth and distant stars.

    One can calculated from the number of years recorded in the Holy Bible down to historical times to come up with a little over 6,000 years. There is no allowance for millions or billions of years.

    Distant starlight and Genesis: conventions of time measurement

    http://creation.com/distant-starlight-and-genesis-conventions-of-time-measurement

    How can we see distant stars in a young universe

    The following link includes a equation for calculation for anyone interested.

    Do you realise that he says the universe is actually billions of years old, and only the earth is young?

    He says it depends on whose clock you are using. By Earth's clock creation only took 6 days of 24 hours. That is what we go by.

    So do you then accept that the universe is billions of years old by other clocks?

    "one can calculate''. Well that is not the same thing as just asserting the age of the universe is in the bible. "One can calculate'' just means your or someone else's opinion.

    Since the whole bible is just made up stories AND wasn't even codified for hundreds of years after your precious Jesus, they are as full of shyte as a christmas turkey.

    It's trivial to make up self fulfilling prophecies a hundred years after the fact. And to fulfill vague prophecies of a thousand years before Jesus also.

    I just listened to a great teaching by him. I'm not much into rocks and stuff but he shows that at the end of all the major river's mouths on the earth there is only 4500 years of mud at the end of them. I found it very interesting. I've never had the time to study those kind of things but he seems to be very knowledgeable andinformative.

    Yes, he a very intelligent and knowledgeable man of science. We could use more like him to help discredit these false teachings inspired by Satan and his so-called atheistic followers.

    I'll take Satan any time. You don't have to be particularly intelligent to have an agenda. Your Humpty has an admitted agenda and therefore ANYTHING he says is automatically suspect from day one.

    You don't do science with the built in idea you are going to prove something.

    You go into a science with the idea of learning the truth, not verifying things not even said directly in the bible, which by definition, is an agenda.

    Agenda is the antithesis of science.

    I have to correct myself RJ. I was listening to Dr Humphreys but the teaching I heard about the rivers was by Dr Grady McMurtry. My mistake , I apologize.

    The evilutionists do science with an agenda to prove their theory and you have no objection to that. All atheists do their science with an agenda to ignore intelligent design and you don't object to that.
