: If our galaxy formed 6,000 years ago, we could still receive light emitted from distant parts of the universe 10,15 or 20 billion years ago, provided the universe existed at that time. GOOD POINT

It is possible the universe is old: in the bible, God formed this physical universe from the waters of the deep (could also mean nothing). But the point of the bible is that everything in the physical universe is created around the Earth; so, like the canvas the painting is on, why does it matter how old the universe is?
