Rand Paul is the Ken Ham of politics. let's compare:My dad and I were debating this. He says that since the universe is expanding, we can't tell if that light was closer, sooner. And that those estimates are based on a homogenous universe. I do not know this stuff well enough, and I was like "red shift something mumble?" (as in, couldn't we figure it out, from the dopplar effect?). Anyone understand on more than a superficial level & can explain?Q-If God created the world 6,000 years ago or so, why are stars millions of light years away?
A-Brendon, what a question! Yes, we know from the dates God gives us in the Bible that He did create the whole universe about 6,000 years ago. When we hear the term light-year, we need to realize it is not a measure of time but a measure of distance, telling us how far away something is. Distant stars and galaxies might be millions of light-years away, but that doesn’t mean that it took millions of years for the light to get here, it just means it is really far away!
