Ted D. and I passed each other at Drexel for a year or so (Ted
leaving, me arriving).
I've created an elective at school for juniors and seniors:
Astronomy + Paleontology. Most (but not all) of my students are YECs,
and I appreciate that view, but want them to see that Christians
disagree. I was at first surprised but many thrive in the atmosphere of
debate and reinterpretation that course provides. A good starting point
I've used is James Boice's first volume of his Genesis commentary (it's
becomeing more dated and thin, but a great example of even handedness).
My specific question involves General Relativity and galactic
motion: do receding galaxies experience time dilation relative to a
clock on earth ? Their light clearly is red-shifted implying motion, but
that motion is interpreted as the change in the fabric of space.
Relative to local space, those galaxies have only a small proper motion.
