6,000 year-old cosmos . . .
Maybe this has been discussed here before, I'm likely behind the curve. But, I've been wondering lately -- if Creationists believe the heavens and Earth are only 6,000 years old, how do they account for light-year distances in a dopler shifted expanding universe? Do they believe that every star and galaxy in the universe is no greater distance apart than 6K light years? In such a universe, every star we see in the night sky could be no further from Earth than that -- i.e., the entire visible/infrared/x-ray spectrum universe surrounding our planet must be that close because if it were further away, we could not see its light. And if stars that have been observed for millenia were located at the 6K light year limit from Earth, observors even five hundred years ago should not have been able to see them, because their light would not have reached the Earh yet. Seems like it would be pretty hard to pack the entire known universe into a 6K light-year-radius ball with Earth at its center. Wouldn't there be lots of collisions? Wonder how they explain this -- and by inference, how much of an onslaught of evidence-to-the-contrary, coming from every corner of science, their belief system can withstand before even they must see it as absurd?
Everything that happens, happens somehow.
