It's The Speed Of Light In Vacuum That Counts

It has not been slowed in vacuum. There is evidence from measurements of the fine structure constant that it was one milliomth faster (or slower???) 12 billion years ago. But that would just chnge the age of the universe by 12,000 years out of 12 or more billion.

It's crazy to think that the universe and all its life forms (including fossils and aged light heading towards us) could be created in 6 days some 6,000 years ago. Why would god do such a stupid thing? God does not want to fool us. God wants us to learn about the universe and how he created it. We cannot learn this from a bunch of Rabis who wrote the Torah in Hebrew.

But I will admit that Abraham's Book of Creation (also written by some Rabis) comes very close to String Theory. God inspired us to create the tools of science to learn about him/her. Do not reject the finest gifts of god, or do so at your peril.

Either believe in science and astronomy or in your religion. You cannot do both. They are mutually exclusive.
