I trust that the sincere student will investigate these models with integrity and not make knee-jerk responses based on emotional motivations about what one wishes the truth to rather be. [Scoffer] scoffs at the 'distant starlight problem' because if it could be explained, it would undermine what he sees as a powerful argument against the existence of God. Many people use alleged scientific problems for the Bible as a defense mechanism to shield their conscience; no one really wants there to be an all-powerful Creator and Judge who has the right to tell them what to do with their life and punish them if they defy Him. But the wise person will not let this desire sideline their search for truth.
