Exodus 20:11

The first chapter of Genesis tells us that God made the earth is six days.  Here is what he did on the fourth day.

And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.
Genesis 1:14-15

It would appear that he created the rest of the universe at this time.  The problem with this belief is that many of the stars are so far away that it takes millions of years for the light from them to reach the earth.  Young earth creationists have come up with several explanations for this problem.  You can read some of them here: Does Distant Starlight Prove the Universe Is Old?

I believe there is a different explanation.  The Bible says that God placed lights in the sky; it doesn’t say he created the bodies that produced those lights at that time.  I have written a post in which I explain the reasons I believe this: Young earth, old universe . Read the rest of this entry

Young earth, old universe

The Bible tells us that the earth was created only a few thousand years ago.  The creation took six days.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
Genesis 1:3-5

Each day consisted of an evening and a morning and had a period of light and one of darkness.  Those who believe the earth is old correctly point out the the word “day” can mean a long period of time but the description of the creation days makes it clear they were literal days.

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
