Do you think it's a coincidence that almost all scientists do not accept the YEC position on these points?

Not sure you are still alive since you have not posted in a long time.

No, it is not coincidence any more than any religion not accepting other beliefs is coincidence.

Eta_Carinae has notifications turned on, but his email address of record is not valid, so he will not receive the email notice about your message and is unlikely to see it.

Re: Confusing
Seeing a star does not tell us its size or distance or true nature. Yes we have info in incoming light that tells us that it seems to have certain elements in it. What else stars may have that we cannot detect/see we do not know.

The intensity ratios of lines of different ionisation stages in a stellar spectrum of can tell us its temperature, and the line widths can tell us its surface gravity (and therefore indirectly its radius and its luminosity). The shifts of the spectral lines can also tell us whether the star is a binary; the line widths (again) can tell us its rotation speed, and the polarisation of the light from the spectral lines can tell us something about the star's magnetic field. Changes in the line profiles can tell us about the star's profile. The presence of emission lines can tell us about the star's chromosphere and about the presence of a stellar wind or circumstellar shell. The different intensities of the spectral lines can also provide information about the abundances of the different elements in the star's atmosphere, and, therefore, indirectly about the nuclear reactions that are taking place in, for example, carbon stars, S-type stars and supernovae.
