Starlight, Time, and the New Physics
A novel solution to the creationist light-travel-time problem is presented. The concept requires new physics?Carmeli?s cosmological relativity. But that physics has been successfully shown to apply to the large-scale structure of the universe. In order for the new physics and Einstein?s physics to apply over their respective domains it is required that the universe underwent enormous expansion that produced massive time dilation on earth, at the center of the physical universe, at some point in the past. This assertion is justified by observational evidence and it is postulated that the time dilation occurred during the Creation week, on Day 4, resulting from the expansion of the fabric of space as God created the galaxies of the cosmos.
