Re: [asa] "RATE" Leaders Abandon Geologic Fantasies and Admit that Extensive Radioactive Decay has Occurred

 Are YEC's still questioning the genuineness of the distances?? That seems to be the weakest argument of all, because you don't even need to measure the distances to know that they are genuine.? The hundreds of billions of galaxies visible to Hubble, each being full of hundreds of billions of stars, demands that the distances be real, because otherwise the galaxies wouldn't physically fit into the amount of space!

David,

Thank you for drawing attention to this. Randy Isaac did likewise a couple
of years ago, in an op-ed piece in the ASA Journal. Here is the link.

This is indeed a very significant admission. In parallel to this, YEC
astronomer David Lisle, in the planetarium show at the Creation Museum, uses
some cosmological distances greater than a few thousand light years without
blinking an eye. Humphreys' ideas about general relativity are behind that
implicit admission that the distances are genuine, just as Humphreys' ideas
about atomic physics are apparently behind this.
