If the universe is only 6’000 years old, then how do we see stars millions and billions of light years away?

This is and excellent and fair question I get asked a lot, and I’ll be happy to answer your question.

First of all, I do not believe the universe has a 6’000 light year radius, I never state that because it would be absolutely ludicrous! But how do we see light from stars “millions” of light years away if the universe is only 6’000 years old? I believe the bible clearly teaches that the earth is around 6’000 years old and God made everything. Actually He made the earth first (Genesis 1:1) then He made the stars (verse 14). Evolution teaches stars came first then the earth, (This is one of the many reasons the evolution theory can not work with the bible.)

There are certainly a lot of stars out there. In Nehemiah 9:6 it says. “Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.” In other words God is claiming he made the universe. So either He did or He didn’t. But what about the stars how do they fit in?

Super Nova
Astronomers have observed that about every 30 years a star “dies” and explodes into a super nova. ICR, September, 1998. Every time a star blows up it produces a super nova ring. So when the astronomers search the heavens they can only find less than 300 rings. Well hang on…If there are only 300 nova rings, and a star blows up about every 30 years….you can do the math and that works out to be 9’000 years. If the universe is billions of years old, there ort to be a heck of a lot more than 300 rings, so why aren’t there. Are the stars wrong, or is the evolutionary theory wrong? The only logical conclusion is that the universe is not billions of years old, and less than 10’000 years old.

Star Equilibrium
Anyway, if there is one star...
