comment How do young earth creationists reconcile the age of the universe with the speed of light, and visible distant objects?
@All I would accept it certainly if it is the most widely held view! But, for clarity, most YEC that I know or have contact with fall firmly in the camp that science must be making mistakes, is wrong, or there is something we do not know about, before they go to the argument that God or the universe are intrinsically deceptive, which is why the answers were surprising me.

@jimreed perhaps you are correct, most YEC believe that science and YEC can and should be reconciled, but what I was hoping for was a more diverse set of answers such as ‘YEC’ only believe in a young earth or a young solar system, here is some biblical evidence’ or ‘there are problems measuring distance on the scale of the universe’, or ‘the speed of light isn’t constant, here some evidence to back it up’ which was one I heard in the creationism chat, I was hoping for some more info on that. If creating photons in mid-flight is the only answer for YEC (at this point in history) then so be it.

I'll +1 certainly because, as you say, you've voiced an alternative viewpoint to this problem which is what I was hoping for. I've never considered the possibility of moving targets to be a problem with distance measurement using triangulation, which is an interesting argument. One thing immediately sticks out at me though: if the star was moving in one direction it would make the triangle seem bigger, if it was moving in another direction in might very well make it small, making it an underestimation of the distances involved?

comment Why did people live so long before the Flood?
St. Augustine argued that the reference in gen 6:3 is actually God predicting that the flood was going to happen in 120 years, thereby limiting the years of those who were still alive.
