Distant Starlight


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


You know, a common objection to the Bible’s history is the question of distant starlight. You see, the distances in outer space are so vast, it’s argued there’s no way light from distant galaxies could get to earth in just a few thousand years.

Now, creationist astronomers have proposed some solutions to this problem. But it’s important to realize the big bang has the same problem! They can’t get light from one side of the universe to the other, even in their fourteen billion years! So they’ve got to assume something called “inflation,” which has problems of its own.

You see, there’s no reason to reject what the Bible says about creation. We can trust God’s Word right from the very first verse!
