David Harris was one of the very first creationists who proposed a model why we are able to see stars that were millions of light-years away. In 1978, he published his model in the Creation Research Society Quarterly, and several other creationists got on the bandwagon and started to propose their own models. David’s model had light from distant stars traveling at an infinite light speed, but at the time of the fall of man, it created an impedance that slowed down the speed of light as it approached the earth. Earlier, creationists such as Henry M. Morris proposed a model of light created in transit. When we interviewed Dr. D. Russell Humphreys, he said that the model David Harris proposed inspired him to develop his own white-hole cosmology, which solves the issue using the general theory of relativity to propose that time runs at different rates in the universe. Other scientists such as Jason Lisle and Steve Miller propose variations of David’s idea. Steve Miller believes that we are seeing the universe in near-real time. Jason Lisle proposes a variation of that concept. His model is called the Anisotropic Synchrony Convention.
