Chicken or the Egg and Starlight

Article#: 727

It is such a marvelous and glorious thing to have all the answers – answers to the questions of the past, the present and the future. And imagine all the answers to all the world's questions of consequence are found between the black covers of one single book. The world is filled with books, volume after untold volume dealing with every conceivable subject in nearly every tongue and all these book must bow down and do obeisance unto this one single book. There are no books beside it and certainly none above it. The book is the inerrant word of the living God found in the majority-text Holy Bible. For 6,000 years, Satan and some of the world's greatest carnal minds have attempted to change and discredit the words of God but have failed time after miserable time. God's holy word will always stand alone because He is His word and all words will either now or in the future bow before the God of the past, the present and eternity. John, chapter 1, verse 1, reads:

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

GOD SAID in his Holy Bible that the earth, the sun, the moon, and the stars are just over 6,000 years old. This number is established by following the time spans listed in the Bible between father and son until you reach Jesus Christ and from there it's a matter of simple math. The ancient Bishop Usher used this technique to date the earth and of course it dates just over 6,000 years of age. In regard to today's subject, Genesis, chapter 1, verses 14-19, reads:

    And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

MAN SAID such an idea is ridiculous. The very fact that many stars are estimated to be millions if not billions of light years away yet we see their light should reduce the Bible's young earth argument to foolishness.

Now THE RECORD. The argument of distant stars and starlight has succeeded in penetrating the world's psyche as the many questions on this matter reaching this website attest to. The following question concerning starlight is typical. It reads:

    I think that this is a great site, but there is something that I have been thinking about: if the universe is only 6,000 years old, then how could light have traveled from those very distant galaxies in that amount of time? I know that light from close things could have easily traveled in that time, but what about those things which are so far away, yet we can see them?

The answer to this question is surprisingly simple and of course it is found in the word of God.

Slightly over 6,000 years ago, Adam was created by God a fully mature man and Eve was made a fully mature woman. By today's standard a man is fully developed around the age of 33. By today's standard then, Adam opened his eyes for the first time and appeared to be about 33 years-old when in fact he was only seconds old. Eve opened her eyes a fully developed woman but also was only seconds old.

All of God's creation was created fully mature and fully functioning. The seas and their tides and boundaries were created fully mature and fully functioning. The grass, the herbs, the trees and the trees bearing fruit were created fully mature and fully functioning. On the fourth day of creation God created the sun, moon, and stars and set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth. As in all of creation, they were fully mature and fully functioning. Not only was their purpose to give light and the energy of life but also for signs, seasons, and for days and years. The sunlight, the moonlight, and the starlight were created by God fully mature and fully functioning. Their lights were shining on the earth in the beginning of their creation, at the very first moments. The light from some stars appears to be millions or even billions of years away but their light was fully mature and fully functioning on the very first day of their creation...already here, giving their light upon the earth and fulfilling their specific designated jobs. The light beam on the day of its creation appeared to be billions of light years old when in fact it was just seconds.

Remember the old line, "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" The answer of course is the chicken, fully mature and fully functioning. A www.GodSaidManSaid.com team member made an additional simple observation when he said, "Of course the chicken came first. Or else, who would have sat on the egg?"

GOD SAID he created all things fully mature and fully functioning. Genesis, chapter 1, verse 14- 19:

    And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

MAN SAID such an idea is ridiculous. The very fact that many stars are estimated to be millions if not billions of light years away yet we see their light should reduce the Bible's young earth argument to foolishness.

Now you have THE RECORD.
