And here is the science to prove it. Do you, dear reader, know what mature creation is? Wonder no more. Mature creation is
is the idea that God created (on Day 4) the sun fully functioning with all those zillions of gamma photons already in place at all depths in the solar interior.
I must at this point say our author is not convinced this is a good enough explanation and suggests the answer lies with Einstein’s theory of relativity. How do we do this?
And we time those events by when an Earth observer could see the events happening.Thus when the light from the sun first arrived at the Earth it was Day 4. It does not matter, it is even irrelevant, how long the light took to travel(emphasis his).
Is he saying what I think he is saying? That the sun had been created many weeks earlier but the observer on earth saw it on the fourth day? and is this really the language of the bible? Does the narrator in Genesis say light reached the earth on the fourth day or that god created the sun on the fourth day? Or the light reaching the earth on the fourth day and god creating the earth on the fourth day mean the same thing?
John tell us
This is the language of the Bible. Events occur when they are observed. The sun was first seen by Earth observers on Day 4 and that defines when the sun was created. That event occurred 3 days after God created the Earth on Day 1 about 6 thousand years ago. See Related Reading for more information on this.
And I call BS.
But it is this comment below that floored me.
Good afternoon, some time ago while going through a deep depression question my faith, there was so much that with my limited knowledge I could not explain. Then I found the website of Hugh Ross but I could not believe that the universe was millions of years old, this presented more questions than answers. After praying to God for really knowing the truth, I found Jason Lisle and you Mr. HARTNETT, I am very grateful to God for having found people who believe in the creation of approximately 6,000 years. I still have many questions to answer, but now I have a reason to live, a motive that fills me completely.
Dear reader, what are you waiting for to find meaning in your lives? God is calling you. The earth is 6000 years old. And the sun just a few weeks older than the earth.
