      You also need to consider the Rapid-Formation Model.  This is an application of  the General Grand Unification Model processes and it produces ANY physical universe that may be the correct cosmology. Although these processes are mathematically predicted, they are not “physical.” It does this in such a manner that during the sequential development of such a universe until say its condition is about that of 6000-7500 years ago, there is no change whatsoever in the condition of the original Earth and its local environment. That is, during the development until this time the original Earth and its local environment are in a suspended animation form. This yields the Eden cosmology and solves a starlight and time problem as well.  It allows for one to accept the Big Bang cosmology or any of the other secular ones purposed and yet it retains a strict Genesis 1 interpretation.

      Subject: [CreationTalk] Distant Starlight


      I joined the Creation Talk group on Yahoo today and saw a bunch of the posts about distant starlight and such. I don't have any letters after my name, but I have enjoyed amateur astronomy since I acquired a C-8 telescope back in about 1978.

      Without boring you with a bunch of my life's details, I have recently (in the last year or so) taken a special interest in the distant starlight conundrum. I have watched John Hartnet's DVD: Starlight, Time and The New Physics about ten times. I was captivated by the notion of the accelerating expansion of the universe and Hartnet's conclusion of the consequential compression of time. I haven't read Moshe Carmeli's book yet (don't know if I'll even be able to comprehend it when it gets here), but it makes me wonder about the "engine" that is driving the acceleration. Is it being pushed from the inside or pulled from the outside (rhetorical?) One question that comes to mind is "What is the expanding universe displacing?" I'm guessing that beyond the finite expanding universe is nothing, absolutely nothing.

      "Nothing" would be less dense than the vacuum of the space that we're familiar with, therefore I speculate that the universe is being drawn out into the void with the diminishing acceleration that has been observed. This appeals to me because the energy that would cause the acceleration is identified (that being the difference in density.)

      Okay, I'll stop jabbering, now. You guys with letters after your names can tell me what you think.
