comment How do young earth creationists reconcile the age of the universe with the speed of light, and visible distant objects?
@RexKerr I don't know how many people share my view. Like I said in my answer, I know it is not a scientific view and I don't believe that science will ever be able to prove that the Bible correctly describes the act or process of creation. Personally, I think most (if not all) creation scientists are barking up the wrong tree. Most (if not all) short blurbs I've heard about how "science proves creation" contain serious scientific flaws. Trying to use to use science to prove a miracle sounds definitionally impossible.

It seems to me that you have edited your question to ensure that it can't be answered. Your question is directed at YECs, who by definition believe the universe (or at least the earth) is "young", but you categorically reject any answer that doesn't take it as a given that the universe is billions of years old. As it stands, I'm strongly tempted to vote to close because it's "not a real question".

Could you provide one or more links to arguments against the red shift theory?

It also explains 5 in the sense that a test can be viewed as a nonverbal question.

@gmoothart How is that any different from the examples I gave of full grown trees and an adult Adam? Today we don't expect either of those to happen instantaneously either. Aside from creation, I don't know of any way to get age without history.

+1 for pointing out that the phrasing of that day has to be interpreted using the understanding of that day.

comment Can man judge whether God is fair?
@TRiG According to Wikipedia that's basically the approach of Luther and Calvin. (Middle of the paragraph under the heading "The second horn".) Should I be posting this as another answer?

comment Can man judge whether God is fair?
@TRiG The statement "God is fair" is not a conclusion we can arrive it, but a fundamental truth we should accept. In mathematical terms, it's a postulate not a theorem. It is no more appropriate for me to conclude that God is fair when He does something I like than it is for me to conclude that God is not fair when He does something I don't like. My judgement is not meaningful in either case because God is Right and Just regardless of whether or not I like what He does.
