Science loves to learn

I find it funny that one day it is 10 billion years, then 13 billion then 93 billion years as the age of the universe derived from "science".
Learning can be funny, but it's always making progress.
When you stop updating your conclusions as more information comes in... that's when you stop learning.
Sometimes people stop learning in the name of tradition.
Some are overly attached to the feeling of nastalgia.
Some are too insecure to admit when they're wrong.
Some are even just using the excuse of tradition so that they can stop learning because they're lazy.
Science continues to learn. It doesn't change with the wind.
Science is okay with giving up the old if the new is better.
Science is okay with admitting it was wrong if you can show the correction.
Science is okay with working hard and continuing to learn.
Has anyone realized that when God created the universe in 7 days, it was 7 days RELATIVE TO HIM. He was the only one here at that time.
Many people have wondered about this.
So then when he said "Let there be light", at LIGHT SPEED particles flew out from his location in all directions? Since the planets stars etc were moving out at light speed, it was only days for the Lord while millions of years elapsed for the galaxies?
Sounds very plausible for this scenario.
The problems begin to arise when trying to make sense of other aspects of the Genesis story as well.
Science likes all the information to make sense. Not just the parts that are socially acceptable.
Just a thought.
And a good one. Keep thinking, it's a great way to keep learning.
