    Becasue the earth is young. It would be funny to see someone go back in time 10000 years and there is nothing there.

    Yeah, there's something there...
    Unless you think the Earth is 157 years old and doesn't age 😛

    Since the solar system is moving through space at an estimated 200 miles per second, 320 Km/sec, if you just went back in time 10,000 years, the Earth would be about 10 light years away in that much time. So you would indeed find yourself in empty space, better have a good spacesuit and LOTS of O2 and food, maybe a good idea to go back to the future 10,000 years so you could find your home again.

    Ok, lets give you such a god. The question arises, why would it do that? What would it have to gain by fooling a bunch of primitive primates on a small planet in the middle of cosmic nowhere?

    God is eternal, the spiritual world is eternal, the living beings are eternal, and the material cosmic manifestation is eternal, but the material manifestation goes through endless cycles of being manifest and un-manifest

    The Christian belief that this cosmic manifestation is the first one ever created is false.

    This particular planet earth is 2.3 billion years old, from its last manifestation

    But before its last manifestation, there was a different manifestation prior to that, and it was similar to this one. (it always is) because the material creation is never ending in its cycles of manifesting and un-manifesting. ( it goes on for ever.)

    “...This particular planet earth is 2.3 billion years old ...”

    science has proven that it is older and is 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old.

    this proves your religion (or at least your version of it) false.

    Again you state opinions without giving argument nor premise.

    He has not fooled anyone. He gives the answer in the Bible.

    So why make us believe that the universe is more than, say, 10,000 years old by making as see stars more than 10,000 Light years away and make our measurements consistently confirm the speed of light as always being the same speed in a vacuum?

    And, if we see a star that is 90,000 light years away explode to oblivion, how long ago did that star actually explode? And if the answer was, say, 1000 years ago, what will we see if we looked in the night sky 89,000 years from now? Would we see the now non-existent star explode again because, finally, the star light has time too reach us?

    I built such a machine from spare washing machine parts and an old computer.
    I can say with certainty now that the Earth is billions of years old. Men as we know them appeared about a million years ago. Posters in the GF appeared some two million years ago.
