there is a goofy creationist theory that attempts to explain how light from stars billions of light years away exists in a 5000 year old universe by using the time dilation of relativity(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So using Lorentz, if the farthest object is 10^10 light years and the earth is "really" only 10,000 years old the difference in relative velocities would have to be around .99995 C

[itex]10^{10} / 10^4 = 10^6[/itex]

[itex]\sqrt{(1-.99995^2)} \approx 10^6[/itex]

Its a silly theory, but can it be made consistent with relativity?
