"If the universe is only thousands of years old, how can light reach us from stars that are millions of light-years away?"This is perhaps one of the most commonly asked questions relating to the Biblical account of creation and a young universe. Many solutions have been proposed, but none are without their difficulties and challenges. However, one astronomer by the name of JASON LISLE, has claimed to find the solution to the "problem." Personally, I have not researched his theory thoroughly enough to pose much of a defense, but I just thought i'd share it with those who are interested.
For those unfamiliar with the arguments that have been proposed as a solution as well as the background information concerning starlight and time, I would recommend watching Dr. Lisle's PRESENTATION.
To read about his theory in more detail, he has written an lay-friendly article HERE and a more technical article HERE.
