It has been pointed out that since YEC doesn't even adequately explain how the light from distant galaxies is supposed to have reached the Earth in less than 10,000 years, any criticism Creationists make of conventional theories is rather moot.

This is a non-sensical statement. A criticism of one theory is not rendered moot by the inability of the critics to provide a comprehensive alternative theory. The criticism remains valid -- it is just equally applicable to both theories. Just because I can't explain how life came from non-life doesn't mean my criticisms of another theory are no good. It means that we need to all admit that we just don't know.
Besides that, creationists can easily provide an explanation for the light "problem" -- that the universe is older than 10k years, but the Earth was made habitable 10k years ago.
Is it appropriate to provide a rebuttal to this nonsensical "criticism?" Ungtss 19:23, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
