It's OK to teach YEC as religion. But it cannot be taught as science. That is the law in this country.

The Jesus quote occurs just before he starts his Sermon on the Mount.

I have proved that all the YEC statements on astronomy are incorrect.

You are correct to suggest that the only one that makes sense is that god started the world 6,000 years ago in an instant with light already on its way to us. However, that is a religious belief and not valid science. To be valid science it has to be fallsifiable and there is no way to determine scientifically if it happened or not.

I do believe in god and that god is constantly breating universes and making things happen in each universe all the time. I come to this conclusion from the way that god controls my life. If he controls me, he controls everything. However, he does with a minimum expenditure of energy, which is also why science works so well.

God created our universe so that intelligent life would then evolve with his guidance and eventually feed that intelligence back into the godhead. That makes us very important to god. God needs us as much as we need god, and eventually we will all become part of god. That is a hell of alot better than heaven.

Regards,

Richard
