Good question Richard. Of course, I've heard and seen it a thousand times. First of all, we make several assumptions about light. (I'm taking some of this from "The answers book" by Ken Ham and others) 1. We know exactly how in deep space light travels. Some have proposed that starlight can travel through curved pathways known as Riemannian space. 2. Light has always traveled at the same speed throughout the history of the universe. There could be an unknown princible which slowed down the speed of light after creation to the speed today.

These points are obviously not proven, but there is much about this universe we don't know. Of course, we are talking about a God who I believe
created the universe in six days and rose from the dead, why would it be hard for him to create the light from stars visible to us on earth immediatly? Hope that answers your question, that is the best I can do.

But I do have something against "old world creationist". According to Genesis, when Adam and Eve at that apple, they introduced sin into the world. The penalty for sin is death, so how could
animals have been dying for millions of years before sin even entered the picture? Anyway, I do enjoy these questions, and I hope my answers are satisfactory. KC2GWX 73's
