If God created the universe less than 10,000 years ago, we would not be able to see stars because the light would not reach us until the very distant future. That is, of course, unless he created the universe with light beams billions of light years away already reaching the Earth. Creating a new universe … More Stars in Genesis – Another Point Against Creationism…
People often argue, “If you do not incorporate the Bible into your life, believe in God, go to church, etc. then where do you get your morals from?
