If you have 25 minutes to spare, and you remember the several times we wrote about Jason Lisle’s “Instant Starlight” Paper, then this video is for you.
This is about 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 is the the creationist astrophysicist who used to be employed by Answers in Genesis (AIG), but for never-explained reasons he left AIG a couple of years ago to become director of whatever it is that they call research at the Institute for Creation Research.
The title of this video is Distant Starlight In A Young Universe. Jason doesn’t show up until shortly after the first three minutes, so to save time you might want to zoom to that point. Then be prepared to be amazed. We’ve never seen Jason speak before, and he’s surprisingly articulate. He gives a good presentation. Rev Rives spends most of the time saying nothing except: “Wow, that’s amazing!”
If the subject interests you, you’ll want to watch this. If not, we’ll certainly understand. We enjoyed it. We’re certainly not convinced by Jason, but the point he’s making isn’t actually wrong. Nevertheless, it’s irrelevant except for young-Earth creationists. It’s difficult to imagine that Jason is devoting his life to creationism.
