His paper, Anisotropic Synchrony Convention — A Solution to the Distant Starlight Problem, was posted at the Answers Research Journal. Like the Creation Museum, the Journal is part of the creationism conglomerate run by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo). The paper reveals Jason’s solution to the Distant Starlight problem. The problem — for young-earth creationists — is that the light we see from distant sources required literally billions of years to reach earth, yet the creationist’s universe is only 6,000 years old.
Jason has a new article today at the AIG website: ASC- Still Going Strong! Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:
Last year, I published a paper demonstrating that light from the most distant galaxies does not take billions of years to reach earth. Rather, light can reach earth virtually instantaneously. The ASC model (Anisotropic Synchrony Convention) shows how Einstein’s Theory of Relativity allows for several different conventions of synchronizing clocks separated by a distance. One of these conventions (ASC) is such that inward-directed light travels instantaneously. The ASC model goes a step further and develops a cosmology based on the premise that the Bible is using such a convention when it describes creation.
We discussed all of that in our earlier post, but don’t let that discourage you from adding more comments here. Let’s read on:
So far, no one has published in a peer-reviewed journal any criticism of this model. Of course, there have been some evolutionists who simply mocked the paper since it goes against their strongly held beliefs. But that is hardly a rational response.
Has Jason insulted us? No problem. Your Curmudgeon will turn the other cheek and continue:
So far, no rebuttals have been submitted for publication in the ARJ [that’s the Answers Research Journal, Hambo’s journal], which would be the scholarly way to point out problems with a published model.
Ah, so that’s the scholarly way to proceed! Who knew? Here’s more:
This gives us increased confidence in the ASC model. ASC seems to lack the scientific problems which plague other creation-based starlight models and enjoys much scriptural support as well.
Jason is feeling good. We’re happy for him. Moving along:
In light of the initial positive feedback I have received regarding the ASC model, I thought it appropriate to write a layman-level article on the topic. This article (with helpful illustrations) appears in the January issue of Answers Magazine.
Jason gives a link, but it’s not helpful. This is Hambo’s Answers Magazine. Unfortunately, the current issue isn’t yet posted. Now we have something to look forward to. Jason is quite the tease.
