Thats it? lol . Astronomy 101 Yoda recommends for you. Besides, has anyone ever measured light exceeding c? If nobody has why would a good scientist assume that it does?
And has anyone seen something come from nothing on it's on?
If so, then you could answer where the first matter came from without invoking or implying the supernatural, or a god did it type answer. Can you?
Age dating is a measurement of age only. It cannot prove that the actual time required to produce that aging effect ever happened. Now when you guys come up with time dating, and a way to prove that this amount of time actually passed, then you will see me listen.
This is because science cannot prove that time and age were "always" two processes that "always" worked together and were never separate processes (one did not control the other). Even though science will try and imply that a process we see today was always the same in past time. Science has also twisted this claim to make their own ideas work, and only imply to deny other ideas that work against their own.
Example: Creationists came up with the idea about the magnetic field of the earth weakening through time. which also menas it became stronger back in time. And because we relied on the idea that things stay the same through history as we see now (as science told us). The old earthers came up with the polar flip idea (twisting things) so that what was claimed did not have to be applied. And then used some type of lame evidence to prove that this happens when there are other explainations for the same type evidence, but were ignored.
While not taking into account that our magnetic field deflects solar wind. And in order for the poles to flip, the strength of the magnetic field would have to weaken at some point which would allow the solar wind to strip away parts of our atmosphere. Some lame excuses were given about this as well as if a polar flip had been observed and they know exactly what would happen.
All of this was thought up as an "excuse" as to why the magnetic would never become to strong to support life. An excuse is a lie that is cloaked in reason to explain away the truth that exists.
So where did the matter come from for the big bang? Will you use science, or reason to answer such a question?
