yea the truth should be determined by whosoever's theory has the most likes on the internet. Not this Satanicly biased science.

Thought it might be worth linking this thread to Falsifying a young Universe. (re: Supernova 1987A)

quote:
As I see it, there can be no way around the older Universe interpretation of the distance to supernova 1987A.

And I am talking about the GEOMETRICAL method of calculating the distance. This doesn't involve anything like standard candles, or relativistic redshifts but on good old trigonometry. (I do hope the YEC's accept trig.)

No way of varying the speed of light (one of the lamest concepts in YECdom) will at the same time explain this supernova being nearby and yet not changing the observed radioactive decay rates of the nickel and cobalt from the explosion.

This, and I stress, GEOMETRICAL distance gives a value of approx. 170,000 light years. No if's and's or but's about it


If for no other reasons that Eta Carinae was in the thread.

Since we know when the light from this supernova first showed up does this single event set a minimum age of the Universe at at least 11 million years old?


I think it's a good argument, and it does have a chance of changing the mind of a YEC who is open to looking at the data.

I have a missionary friend who was formerly YEC. SN1987a caused him to rethink his position. He could believe that light was created in transit, but he could not believe that God would provide details of a supernova explosion that never happened. He is now an old-earth creationist (OEC).


"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." – Albert Einstein

“I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives us a lot of factual information, puts all of our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.” – Erwin Schroedinger

No. It means that earth time may not equal star time.

This one is funny. So, sun time doesn't equal earth time, even though we see the sun around 8 minutes later?

We see everything in time that exists here. How would we know if time did not exist the same or at all out there?

How would we know if time did not exist the same or at all out there?

Observation. General Relativity predicts that time exists throughout the universe. General Relativity makes many predictions about what we should observe if that is true and, by golly, when we do the observations we see what GR predicted. E.g. gravitational redshift observed in white dwarf stars or the change in orbital period of PSR J0348+0432. There's loads more.

You are, of course, welcome to provide an alternate theory that squares with our millions of observations. Many people far more educated than you have tried. They have all failed.

From your link

"We report on radio-timing observations of the pulsar J0348+0432 and phase-resolved optical spectroscopy of its white-dwarf companion, which is in a 2.46-hour orbit. We used these to derive the component masses and orbital parameters, infer the system’s motion, and constrain its age."

They USE time. Timing. Timing as seen from and based on earth time and space. Religion.

A Hypothetical Question
starlite writes:

We see everything in time that exists here. How would we know if time did not exist the same or at all out there?

Theoretically, when we look out there through a telescope, we are looking back through time. Is it possible (though not likely) that what we see through that lens is all entirely in the past and that the stars could now have disappeared?

One would think so, if all of the data is correct. Also, I would be interested in your answer to the hypothetical question that i asked starlite.

Do you know what a super nova is?

Re: Wish I May Wish I Might
I think so. Bigger stars explode for some reason. I'll have to google it to find out why. Basically I always just assumed that some stars exploded and other stars imploded causing black holes.

Re: Wish I May Wish I Might
So what is left after a supernova is not what we would consider the same star, correct?

So SN2016adj is a death stage of that star.

If that is the case then what we are seeing today is actually how sn2016adj looked 11 million years ago.

That star ceased to exist as a star 11 million years ago.

Still with me?

So when we look even further back we are looking at stars that almost certainly no longer exist.

It's estimated that our sun will last for another 4 or 5 billion years, but the universe is at least 14.5 billion years old.

Our sun is pretty small and boring and so likely has a longer lifetime than many larger suns so it is almost certain that many of the stars and galaxies we see no longer exist.
