- Or how about this one, an entire page full of links on the subject? There are a good number of scientists who wonder if the speed of light is, indeed, slowing down and are looking to see if that speed can be plotted on a standard decay curve. Say what you like, we know that the speed of light can be varied and there are those that suspect that it is not a constant at all.
Perhaps you can go back to my post and actually address my hypotheses and show me where I have gone wrong rather than disagree with me while conceding my points? Or, perhaps my points cannot be disproven? Then we go back to the idea of presupposition and worldview again, don't we? My worldview can beat up your worldview!
I suggest that there was an Observing God at the time of the creation of all things, and He has given an account of creation in the Book of Genesis. The Bible isn't meant to be a scientific textbook, granted, but once scientists knew that if they speculated upon something that was refuted in the Bible, they were on the wrong track. Now, secular scientists almost seem to go to the Bible in order to make sure they are moving in the opposite direction.
If God just placed immovable objects in the heavens, gravity would begin to work upon them and eventually the stars would begin heading towards the nearest neighbor.
This makes me think of the Homer Simpson quote "could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it?"
If God placed immovable objects, would they not be immovable?
But God decided to create things THIS WAY. He invented gravity, for instance, and a Universe full of moving objects. If you are asking me, or telling me, that God could have done it a different way, I agree. How does that make a point, though?
if God was going to make this massive Universe as it is, how else would he deal with the light question? Hmmm?
God could have set forth the events of the big bang.
God could have. He could have created Godzilla and set him loose in Tokyo. But He told us in Genesis how He did it and somehow He seemed to have forgotten that Big Bang thing and all those billions of years....or, more plausibly, they didn't happen.
This post is already too long. I'll start with Creeper's comments next time!
