You response to the light evidence shows your bias. There is no possible evidence, no possible proof that could convince you that you're wrong, because 'God made it that way.' We infer from experience and what we know of the laws of physics that all light and energy must be emitted from a source, but not now, because God made it that way. Aaron, this argument is terrible. If I said I had an invisible dragon living in my garage, would you believe me? Why not? Because the burden of proof is on the one who makes the claim. Simply laying all inconsistencies in one's beliefs on a supernatural force that defies the law of physics is an act of desperation.

Also, if God was trying to make a 'fully developed universe' from square one, (i.e. so men could see stars at the beginning) why bother creating the light from galaxies so distant that they can't even be seen with the naked eye? Seems like overkill. Wouldn't it make more sense for an intelligent designer to set the universe it motion and let it all pan out, rather than going through leaps and bounds to give the universe the appearance of age?
