Yes that is of course based on the idea that light always moves at the same speed and that there has been given enough time for the light to reach earth. If both are true then yes you would be right.

Now I'm not sure if you have heard this news yet or not, but australian scientist have gotten strange reading from a distant Q_____ (I forget the exact name) star. Ocording to there reading the light the are getting from the star is moving at a different speed. They determined this by a process I don't understand nor will even try to figure out.

Of course this would have determental effects in the physics community, since E = Mc^2 would no longer exist to be a plausible theory since it relies on the idea that the speed of light is a constant.

This could lead to:

1. The rethinking of the the new dicoveries on physics from the last 50 years.

2. Makes it impossible to judge distances in space except for those within about 100 - 1000 years.

3. The age of the universe can no longer be determined by examining light. That means theoreticly it could be trillions to 6000 years old.

Hope this added to the disscussion.

God Bless,
