I don't know if this deserves its own thread. But we'll see what happens.

Quartic decay (as Dr. Cheesman suggested) of light intensity vs. distance would suggest the universe is not 13,000,000,000 light years in "radius", but rather the square root of that, namely 114,000 light years across


Oh, it needs it's own thread. However, the only problem will be the lack of participation over there. There are simply not enough kooks to keep OW, UD, Brainstorms, and youngcosmos amusing. The most notable thing about most of those sites is the lack of discussion, in comparison to something as inane as "pokemon forum" which gets almost 50,000 hits in google, for example. And I imagine most of them get more traffic the all the ID forums combined!

I have less trouble than most regarding 6 literal days for creation as meaning the stars were made in those 6 days.

The mission of YoungCosmos is to provide a forum where the most serious scientific objections to a Young Earth can be raised and carefully considered. Although the process may not be pleasant for those sympathetic to a Young Earth, the process is necessary for Young Earth theory to progress as a serious scientific competitor.

If they were made, they were designed. If they were designed the EF claims to detect that. I'll ask Sal if the EF notes the sun as designed......

Well, Sal is a good sport to acknowledge what we've known all along, namely that there's no principled difference between Creationism and Intelligent Design.

Or would Sal object that "Young Earth Intelligent Design" is a very different thing from Young Earth Creationism?

Sal Cordova is a huge liability to any pretense that ID is not religion.

Not to mention other liabilities, such as quote-mining.

Well, SN1987A is 169,000 light years away.

This distance is independent of the speed of light decaying or not! †A counter-intuitive result, but one
you can check for yourself. †

SN1987A formed a ring, and light from the supernova bounced off the ring and arrived at earth 400 days later than the supernova. †To keep the analysis simple, make a right triangle (the ring is not perpendicular but tilted in reality). †

The angle is 1.66 arc seconds or 1.66 / 3600 degrees. †The sine is the diameter of the
ring. †The cosine is the distance to the supernova. †The hypotenuse is the light bouncing off the ring. †The path length difference is 400 days, since the hypotenuse and cosine are very close to the same length. †Now assume that the speed of light was ten times faster for one year.
Both rays of light travel the same distance (10 light years), with the remaining distance to be travelled still 400 light days different, and the light arrives 400 days apart.

Well heck, **all** IDers are.  Ain't NONE of them can go ten minutes withoput launching into the "Bible blah blah blah Jesus blah blah blah God blah blah blah" routine. Just read UD for ten minutes.

As I've always said, all you gotta do is just sit back and let them talk long enough, and they shoot *themselves* in the head every single time.  Proudly. They simply cannot shut their big mouths.

They are by far their own worst enemies.

FSM help me but I'm a masochist.  I went and hit Sal with the same C14 cal curve consilience question in his C14 thread we've been beating AFDave with (I posted there as 'Tiggy' ).  He's already gone through one iteration of mindless AIG C&P 'evidence' that completely fails to address the question.  Wonder how long before he introduces Jesus into the equation?  He's already brought in DA FLUD.  :p

Well, that didn't take long.

Sal has already removed my criticisms from the C14 dating thread and banned me from posting there.

One a craven YEC always a craven YEC I guess.  Dembski and DaveTard woud be proud!

Now let's see how long before I get banned totally.

Dr. Jellison,
I do not want to minimize whatsover that you may be right. I was merely pointing out the possible (even if remote) chance CDK might be able to survive the problem you pointed out. The eclipsing binaries in Andromeda may have an alternative explanation, and the fact that 9% of spectroscopic binaires are eclipsing was suggested as an anomaly (perhaps a disconfirming anomaly) as well. We are afterall only getting pulses out of "eclipsing binaries".

We do not in fact have their orbits in plain sight.


I read this and heard the distinct sound in my mind of:

"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"
"WERE YOU THERE?"

Sal has been talking about Setterfield for over three and a half years, at least:  Sal @ ARN  But, how serious is he about following the science with YEC implications?  Just last week, he admitted:

Actually until you pointed out the Andromeda and Magellan formations I was not aware of binaries that far away.

From his C14 radiometric dating thread:

In 2004 some of my personal research augmented that of Loma Linda/GRI

Either that is more self-fluffing, or Sal must have been pretty knowledgeable about radiometric dating.  From the ARN post linked above:

faded_Glory:
Salvador,
All you show are 'proofs by contradiction', but surely a young Earth would have many traces left of its short history? One example would be short-lived radioactive isotopes. Where are they?

fG, I do respect your opinion here, you are clearly more knowledgeble in these areas.  I present the argument with caution, I could be wrong (and fall back to OEC), but for the sake of defending the YEC thesis, I will try to entertain your objection to the best of my ability.
Can you point me to a link to spool me up on radiometric dating? Your question deserves to be answered. I will do my best to honor your question. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, however, there may be some possibilities to radioactive decay related to the speed of light being variable (strange as that may sound).

What a fluffer!  The argument he cautiously presents is that "there may be some possibilities to radioactive decay related to the speed of light being variable" and to ask for a link where he can read up on radiometric dating.  How telling that his personal research ignorant googling can augment YEC research.  Sal puts the "fun" in fundie.

I found it because Bradford of TT linked to it on his own blog. This guy is hysterically funny, yet articulate--check out his justification for using the term "female drones."

Sal explains why he's pro ID:

http://www.virtual-creations.net/~youngcos/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=43



Quote
I started getting interested in ID in 2001 when my father was terminally ill and I was searching for meaning in life. There were also future missionaries from my churches and Bible studies who were risking their lives for their faith. It bothered my conscience that if the Bible were false, I was merely encouraging them toward their doom. One of the missionaries was Heather Mercer who became world famous in 2001 when US Army rangers rescued her from the Taliban. Thus, I had to be assured that ID was probably true so I could sleep at night, for their sake. If ID were false, the moral thing to do would be to discourage them from being missionaries.


This sums up Sal. He re-imagines reality to compensate for his immorality.
