I watched the video of your visit with Ian Juby. You made a comment that you thought we were looking back at the creation week when we look at the night sky. If I heard right then mankind has been looking back at one day (day 4) or one week of creation for 6 thousand years now. Is this due to Time Dilation?

I’m no scientist but I thank God often for your service to Him in this way. You are very knowledgeable while at the same time have the gift of explaining things so even I can understand…. much of it.

My brother is a diehard theistic evolutionist, but he is also very interested in what you have to say. I’ve been trying to point out the truth of the opening chapters of Genesis to him for several years now. You are one of the few Creation scientists that he will listen to or watch on DVD. Thank you for your service to our great God and Savior.


Loran, My reference to looking back at Creation week may be understood from two possible perspectives. One is that a massive time dilation event has occurred in the universe such that essentially all that we see, because we are looking back in time in the universe, emanates from the events of Day 4 of Creation week. This idea employs the Einstein Simultaneity Convention (ESC). Alternately if you consider that the Lord created the stars and galaxies in the Universe on Day 4 as described in Genesis 1, such that all light from those newly created sources arrived at the earth for the first time on Day 4, then we are looking back at objects, now, that are only about 6000 years old, which on a cosmological scale is extremely young. This is under that hypothesis the universe was created “mature” and we are essentially seeing a universe much the same as it was after God first created it. That idea employs the Asynchronous Simultaneity Convention (ASC). Please read HOW DO WE SEE DISTANT GALAXIES IN A 6000 YEAR OLD UNIVERSE?, THE ANISOTROPIC SYNCHRONY CONVENTION MODEL AS A SOLUTION TO THE CREATIONIST STARLIGHT-TRAVEL-TIME PROBLEM — PART I , and THE ANISOTROPIC SYNCHRONY CONVENTION MODEL AS A SOLUTION TO THE CREATIONIST STARLIGHT-TRAVEL-TIME PROBLEM — PART II. I am still working on some new ideas that relate to this, so stay tuned.
