A Major Problem with the speed of light, Young Earth Creationism, and the appearance of age argument:
Seven Points about starlight in honor of the Seven Days of Genesis-
- It takes light 8 minutes to reach us from the sun. If we observe a solar flare we are actually looking at what was happening 8 minutes ago on the sun.
- The further away an object is from us the longer ago what we are observing occurred. Therefore when we look at Andromeda scientists tell us we are seeing what happened 2.5 million yrs. ago since it is that many light years away.
