Sadly, the article and the commenters have little understanding of the OPTIC PROPERTY of light. Actual light is composed of energy and mass, true. But the HEAT and TRAVEL can only be said of the MASS. The light itself, never 'travels' anywhere. Depending on its angle in the sky and what you're using to view, you're seeing REAL TIME the object.
You are not seeing light which USED TO be there. Honestly, I don't know how dumb people can be. It's an OPTIC issue, no travelling required. Laws of OPTICs.
The sun's HEAT and MASS from the ENERGY takes 8 minutes to reach Earth, and that's why there are tidal waves, etc. But the LIGHT is immediate, depends on WHERE YOU ARE at the moment. Same, for all those stars in the sky.
OTOH, this little ditty about a planet being born is interesting to explain why, inter alia, the Earth's core is still quite light, because molten.
So when we see 'darkness' like in the Abyss, then it's far from the core. And, we know that, too.
So for all those who debunk the Bible's ability to talk science, I submit the problem is, too many incompetent readers, not the Bible itself. Most of the readers call themselves Christians, and they are quintessentially inept at reading Genesis
. So those wanting to debunk Bible, instead of reading IT, they go for the inept readers of it. And both fall into a pit.
I'm fed up with willful incompetence. Will shut up now.
