YEC explanation for traveling light.
Does anyone know their apologetics for this?

I've heard "God placed the light there" and "we don't know how long ago God created the light before the earth" and "God did it. Period."

Do they have a better satisfactory answer?

Those are the answers I've heard.

"God created a 'pre-aged' mature universe, so look old but it is not more than 6,000-10,000 years old.'

To which, I like to respond with, "So... God cheated?"

RE: YEC explanation for traveling light.
The recent experiments that prove sub-atomic particles can travel faster than light have been used by some YEC to claim that the universe is much younger than science suggests. They believe this is because, if light can travel faster than originally thought, it would reach our eyes sooner, hence a younger universe. However, they fail to realize that experiment only applies to the quantum level.

RE: YEC explanation for traveling light.
It did not take them long to distort those observations into some type of YEC argument that makes no sense and demonstrates a lack of understanding about what they are talking about.

Light? What light?
Cause I got these LEDs and I think they're just grand.
Are they talking about the light from the central bulge of our galaxy? Our sun? The other stars? Our Moon? <--- not even Bill O'Reilly knows that!!

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Light comes in and light goes out, you can't explain that.

RE: YEC explanation for traveling light.
One of the more creative arguments I've heard is called "C Decay." It basically just says that the speed of light c used to be much higher, maybe even infinite, but has since slowed to the 3.0e+8 that we know today.

Hey, you can't say they're not creative! Wink
