Distant Starlight

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for light to move instantaneously even today. So, the amount of time it takes for light to travel from the most distant stars to earth is actually zero—not only during Day Four of Creation but today as well.

The light-travel problem is more about underlying assumptions than things we can observe and study with empirical science.

This principle was not discovered by a biblical creationist in an attempt to solve the starlight problem. Rather, it was discovered by Albert Einstein. It shows that the light-travel problem is more about underlying assumptions than things we can observe and study with empirical science.

Warning to those unfamiliar with Einstein’s theory of relativity: this will seem counterintuitive, so be prepared to think outside the box!
