Scientists say that there were periods of "inflation" in cosmology, and periods of "acceleration" in evolution. They say these things attempting to try to explain things that dont add up, from their perspective. If we play by the same "scientific" rules, why not consider that the mature trees at creation had annual rings, implying years instead of hours? Same could be said of all other living mature things at creation. In other words, consider that if creation (vs big bang/evolution)is true,then what we see)age could be any age. After all, this is a hallmark of "science fiction" back to the future scenarios. Maybe God has a grin, as he throws curve balls at scientists...

RE Age of Stars
I goofed, didnt tie my prior response (50) to the age of stars. My conclusion is that age could be "apparent", not real, at least from our point of reference, if we apply the same rules being used by scientists today. There are some issues with "dark matter" (70% of all matter) that may have a huge influence on the behavior of light from stars and galaxies.

Re: On Grins
Yep, if there really is a God (or god), as every culture in history seems to presume, he must take humor in what we do with the evidence of his existance. As for me, a christian, I would never presume to speak for him anymore.... I have tried that, and have failed miserably. My experience was much like that of Job in the Old Testament. Now I try to stay out of his way as he rattles cages. Isnt it amazing how some look at the stars and see him, while others mock or ignore him..?
