based on a constant speed of light as evidenced by star spectra of stars that are considerably older than 6,000 years and considerable farther away than 6,000 light years.

The constancy of the speed of light is one of the most fundamental principles of science. Your previous reply is essentially that we do not really know what its value is except on earth. Well, you are wrong. The universe is primarily composed of vacuum. What we measure on earth is the velocity of light in a vacuum. Nothing is nothing no matter where you find it.

I know you are young and I respect your right to disagree with conventional thought. But I regard people like you as the most dangerous people in the world as far as democracy is concerned. We already know what fundamentalism has done to nations that formerly had the most advanced research in math and science in the world.
