[234] A Brief History of Light

                                                       

"Nature and Nature’s laws lay hid in night, God said: Let Newton be, and all was light." - Alexander Pope

The speed of light is known to be a constant, some 300,000 km/s. If there is no God then it has always taken this value from the Big Bang until today, and it is a fundamental constant. But both Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein believed that there was a God. So let us, for an instant, suppose that they were correct not only in their formulations of the laws which govern the universe, but also in their belief that such laws were the work of a law maker, a creator with intelligence, the creator of our intelligence, the God of the bible. 

If this is the case then it was God who set the speed of light at 300,000 km/s. With this is mind, let us now look at Genesis chapter 1. We find that on the first creative day of the seven, which was more of an epoch than a 'day', God said: Let there be light. And he said this after observing that there was darkness on the surface of the watery deep. In other words he said it after he had created the planet earth in the literal meaning of the chapter.

In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and God's spirit was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.
And God proceeded to say: "Let there be light." Then there came to be light
(Genesis 1:1-3).

But we know that light existed from the start of the Big Bang, which was obviously before the creation of the earth. Therefore light already existed when he said: Let there be light. This is the key realisation in understanding the meaning of Genesis 1. So God reset some feature of light or recreated it on day 1 in the literal meaning. Likewise on the 7th creative day that we are now in, we understand that we are penned in like sheep in this solar system by the speed of light. The nearest star is 4 light years away, and the Milky Way is 100,000 light years across, so realistically we are being prohibited from visiting other stars by the current speed of light. But would the God, who we presume exists, after the presumptions of both of the fathers of the laws of motion of bodies in space, frustrate us indefinitely, by showing us millions of stars and yet setting a speed of light which prevented us from reaching them?

Or would he not rather inspire us by presenting us with a taste of his awesome creativity through what we can see of this great universe in order to give us something to aim at, whilst we are learning about his laws for us? And then once we have grasped the importance of his human laws and ceased being a danger to ourselves and to any other present or future inhabitants of the universe, would he not then release us, perhaps just as far as the Milky Way at first by increasing the speed of light, a constant which acts rather like the traffic police? 

Let us be absolutely clear about this. The bible explicitly states that God recreated light on the first creative day. And we are deducing, from a knowledge of his character, that he will speed light up at some time in the future, but this is not explicitly stated in the bible as far as we are aware. However God is the one who said to Abraham:

He now brought him outside and said: Look up, please, to the heavens and count the stars, if you are possibly able to count them. And he went on to say to him: So your seed will become (Genesis 15:5).
Uncountable heavenly seed, yes, angels yes, for the stars prefigure the angels in bible symbolism:

Where did you happen to be when I founded the earth?
Tell [me], if you do know understanding.
Who set its measurements, in case you know, Or who stretched out upon it the measuring line?
Into what have its socket pedestals been sunk down, Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars joyfully cried out together, And all the sons of God began shouting in applause?
(Job 38:4-7).

But Abraham's seed may also colonize the physical stars, so that one day in the future, when Abraham who will be resurrected into the Kingdom of God as a human in our understanding, looks up to the heavens again, his seed will not only be those stars in the symbolic meaning, but will also inhabit them in the literal meaning.

But if God resets the speed of light both on day 1 and on day 7 , then might he not have reset it on days 2,3,4,5,6 as well? In fact how could a God who has presided over the most incredibly dynamic seventh day, in which man has moved from a tent dwelling prehistoric illiterate into a computerised nuclear whiz kid with interstellar pretensions, and all this in his day of rest ?!? How could such a God have sat around for 3 million years waiting for Homo Habilis, Homo Erectus, Archaic Homo Sapiens Neanderthal man and Modern Homo Sapiens (sometimes called Homo Sapiens to domesticate the sheep? Something that we finally achieved around 7,000 BC according to the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Evolution: Here Dolly, nice Dolly ! Well the scripture actually says:

And God began calling the light, day (Genesis 1:5).

In other words for 'day' read 'light'. But then we read:

And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a nth day

Where n = 1,2,3,4,5,6 but not 7.

But God by his earlier admission is calling light 'day', so in fact, what was happening was:

And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a nth light

Spelling this out:

And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a first light
And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a second light
And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a third light
And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a fourth light
And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a fifth light
And there came to be evening and there came to be morning a sixth light

How can there be an 'evening' and a morning' (the Hebrew day has the evening first) in a 'day' which lasts for thousands of years? Well, the answer is that the type or speed of light that existed at the end of the 'day' did not exist at the beginning, so that there was a darkness in that type or speed of light. In fact half way through each day, when the darkness ended and the light began, there was a new type of light created. Could this be the origin of the 7 lamps of the lampstand in the temple?

And you must make a lampstand of pure gold. Of hammered work the lampstand is to be made. Its base, its branches, its cups, its knobs and its blossoms are to proceed out from it.
And six branches are running out from its sides, three branches of the lampstand from its one side and three branches of the lampstand from its other side.
And you must make seven lamps for it; and the lamps must be lit up, and they must shine upon the area in front of it
(Exodus 25:31-37).

So now we are in a position to state the Monrose hypothesis:

The Monrose Hypothesis

In each creative day God changes the speed of light.

So here it is: A Brief History of Light.

We would love to know whether the new initial speed of light, which we propose below, the light of the first day,  would actually account for the amount of matter or background radiation or whatever there is left over from the Big Bang in the universe. This concept was hypothesised by Bevelyn Morose on Saturday morning at around 3am 22nd July 2000.

Now we deduce the initial speed of light during the Big Bang from the bible

There is a bible account were God slowed down time:

It was then that Joshua proceeded to speak to Jehovah on the day of Jehovah's abandoning the Amorites to the sons of Israel, and he went on to say before the eyes of Israel: Sun, be motionless over Gibeon, And, moon, over the low plain of Aijalon.
Accordingly the sun kept motionless, and the moon did stand still, until the nation could take vengeance on its enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun kept standing still in the middle of the heavens and did not hasten to set for about a whole day.
And no day has proved to be like that one, either before it or after it, in that Jehovah listened to the voice of a man, for Jehovah himself was fighting for Israel
(Joshua 10:12-14).
It is as if God has a fast forward button, or a slow motion button which we shall see amounts to a variation in the speed of light.

There are four time substitution scriptures in the bible that we are aware of (we restate these later):

By the number of the days that you spied out the land, 40 days, a day for a year, a day for a year, you will answer for your errors 40 years, as you must know what my being estranged means (Numbers 14:34).

And you must lie upon your right side in the second case, and you must carry the error of the house of Judah 40 days. A day for a year, a day for a year, is what I have given you (Ezekiel 4:6).
In both cases a period of 40 days in involved.

However, let this one fact not be escaping your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with the [Lord] as 1,000 years and 1,000 years as one day (2 Peter 3:8).

Before the mountains themselves were born,
Or you proceeded to bring forth as with labor pains the earth and the world
(inhabitants thereof - Ben Davidson)
Even from time indefinite to time indefinite you are God.
You make mortal man go back to crushed matter,
And you say: "Go back, you sons of men."
For 1,000 years are in your eyes but as yesterday when it is past, And as a watch during the night.
You have swept them away; they become a mere sleep; In the morning [they are] just like green grass that changes.
In the morning it puts forth blossoms and must change; At evening it withers and certainly dries up
(Psalm 90:2-6).

Please notice that the above Psalm mentions creation, together with the time substitution of 1,000 years for a day, together with a changing of the 1,000 years in the morning and a discarding of them in the night.

The Length of each Creative Day

Doubling the speed of light would mean that mankind could get to the nearest star twice as quickly in his time. We are going to assume that doubling the speed of light doubles the speed at which archeological time passes for the purposes of this section. So that God can make two days into one day by doubling the speed of light. This capability is necessary in order that each creative day has the same 'length'. This must be the case from the definition of a week. 

Einstein's Light Clock:

Imagine a light clock consisting of a Laser on the top of a mountain aimed at a large mirror on the top of another mountain which is say 15 km away. The laser fires a burst of light lasting only for 1 nanosecond at the mirror, the light bounces off the mirror and returns to the laser having traveled 30 km. The instant that the light returns the laser fires another 1 nanosecond burst of light at the mirror. Since we know that light currently travels at 300,000 km/s we know that it will take the light 100 microseconds to complete the 30km round trip. So that this clock ticks 10,000 times per second. Imagine that this clock then emits a beep every 10,000 ticks, i.e. every second.

Imagine now that there is a God if you will. And he is the one about whom King David said this:

Bless Jehovah, O my soul.
O Jehovah my God, you have proved very great.
With dignity and splendor you have clothed yourself
Enwrapping yourself with light as with a garment 
(a long garment of light?? c.f. Genesis 3:21)
Stretching out the heavens like a tent cloth
(Psalm 104:1,2).

He is the one who decided that the present speed of light is 300,000 km/s. Now would the true God only have one garment in his wardrobe?? We think not:

By the abundance of power my garment takes on a change; Like the collar of my long garment it engirdles me (Job 30:18).

You at [the] beginning, O Lord, laid the foundations of the earth itself, and the heavens are [the] works of your hands.
They themselves will perish, but you yourself are to remain continually; and just like an outer garment they will all grow old, and you will wrap them up just as a cloak, as an outer garment; and they will be changed, but you are the same, and your years will never run out
(Hebrews 1:10-12).

So he now says, let us take a day for a year in this speed. Then we find that light is traveling 360 times faster by Divine decree, at 108,000,000 km/s. Then Einstein's clock would tick 360 times faster, since it would only take light 278 nanoseconds to travel the 30km round trip. But if we define one second as the time that it takes this clock to beep, the time for 10,000 round trips, then 'time' is now traveling 360 times faster. So we can define 'Real Time', as time as we experience it today, time where the speed of light is 300,000 km/s. This is time where the nearest star is 4 light years away. Then we can define Einstein's Clock Time (ECT perhaps ET might be more appropriate) as being one second per beep or one second per 10,000 ticks. So that ECT speeds up if light speeds up.

What Astrophysicists measure when they date the universe to between 11 and 16 billion years old is Einstein's Clock Time, which they take as being Real Time, because they have not admitted the existence of a God who can change the speed of light. But in the evening of the 6th creative day, we shall find that light was traveling 360 times faster than it does today so 360 ECT days was one Real Time day, one day of experience, so we have solved the problem of God's boredom in the 6th creative day. Please remember that in the Hebrew day, even today, the evening precedes the morning. The Hebrew day runs from 6pm to 6pm.

How long is each creative day ?

We have to start by stating that Adam sinned and the 7th creative day started in 3993 BC in the ancient lunar calendar month of Nisan (March/April). The proof of this is not science but bible research or theology - see U16. Archbishop Usher of Armagh calculated that Adam was born in 4004BC, and his chronology is printed in many old King James Bibles. We have calculated that he was born in 4027 BC, but from the point of view of Astrophysics and the date of the Big Bang, 23 years here or there is not particularly relevant. However we are also going to use our knowledge that the Kingdom of God, the next system on this earth and in heaven, starts 6,000 years after the 7th creative day or epoch, began, and that this Kingdom lasts 1,000 years. We will not actually rely on this knowledge in deducing either the date of the Big Bang or the initial speed of light at that time, but it does help to understand the background to our calculations and deductions. Again if you wish to know more about this please visit U16 or see U31. Please note that the bible is written in the Calendar of all ancient mankind, a lunar calendar which has 30 days to each month and 12 months to each year, making 360 days per year in total. We have written a Biblical Lunar Calendar (BLC) converter program which can be downloaded from the above website. It converts BLC dates to Gregorian (True Solar) dates from 2000 BC to 3000 AD and is based on Lunar Data from Fred Espinak of NASA.

Now the good book says:

By the number of the days that you spied out the land, 40 days, a day for a year, a day for a year, you will answer for your errors 40 years, as you must know what my being estranged means (Numbers 14:34).

And you must lie upon your right side in the second case, and you must carry the error of the house of Judah 40 days. A day for a year, a day for a year, is what I have given you (Ezekiel 4:6).

Let us do what this book says therefore, and take a day for a year and a day for a year in 40 days. We get:

40 X 360 X 360 days = 14,400 years. 

Now one of the principles of the bible code (Isaac Newton believed that the bible was written in a code, he died trying to decode it and deduced that Armageddon would be in 1948 from Daniel 12, see 'Isaac Newton' - Michael White, and we believe that we have decoded it to some extent) is that there are no coincidences in the bible. By this we mean that the supposed coincidences are put there deliberately, as a matter of design by God, to get us thinking. Several more enlightened Christian churches take this view in their attempts to understand the holy book, it is especially useful in the book of Revelation which is the book which gives us the length of the Kingdom of God as being 1,000 years.

So we deduce that it is not a coincidence that each of the two times that the phrase: 'A day for a year' appears, it appears twice and it is with reference to a period of 40 days. Now these scriptures involve time substitutions, and we will see later that these are used to deduce the changes in the speed of light that God has made  in the creative days. So they are related to the creative days, each of which has a different type of light. And basically they are a good length for a creative day. So we take them as actually defining the lengths of the creative days, in terms of Real Time.

In the current creative day, the 7th, we know that the speed of light is not changed until after the Kingdom of God, i.e. until after 7,000 years have passed. And we know that it is changed at half time, this being the split between evening and morning in a day. It would be reasonable to assume that the change is not long after the end of the 1,000 year Kingdom of God. So the 7th day is just over 14,000 years long.

So we take each creative day as 14,400 years long in Real Time. Then since light was first changed half way through the first creative day, when the evening half of the day had ended, we know that the Big Bang was the origin of the very first form of light before this change at the start of the first creative day, which was actually the start of time, and the start of space time was actually 6  x 14,400 + 5992 = 92,392 years ago in Real Time. We are taking the 7th creative day as starting in 3993Nisan (March/April) when Adam sinned - see above, and we are now 5992 years on from then (in 2000 AD). However Astrophysics measures its antiquity in terms of ECT. So to see if this figure when corrected for ECT agrees with Astrophysics we need to establish what the speeds of light were in each of the first 6 creative mornings and how ECT relates to Real Time.

The 4 speeds of Light

We have the following four time substitution scriptures to play with:

By the number of the days that you spied out the land, 40 days, a day for a year, a day for a year, you will answer for your errors 40 years, as you must know what my being estranged means (Numbers 14:34).

And you must lie upon your right side in the second case, and you must carry the error of the house of Judah 40 days. A day for a year, a day for a year, is what I have given you (Ezekiel 4:6).
In both cases a period of 40 days in involved.

However, let this one fact not be escaping your notice, beloved ones, that one day is with [the] Lord as 1,000 years and 1,000 years as one day (2 Peter 3:8).

Before the mountains themselves were born,
Or you proceeded to bring forth as with labor pains the earth and the world
(inhabitants thereof - Ben Davidson)
Even from time indefinite to time indefinite you are God.
You make mortal man go back to crushed matter,
And you say: "Go back, you sons of men."
For 1,000 years are in your eyes but as yesterday when it is past, And as a watch during the night.
You have swept them away; they become a mere sleep; In the morning [they are] just like green grass that changes.
In the morning it puts forth blossoms and must change; At evening it withers and certainly dries up
(Psalm 90:2-6).

These are all of the pieces of our jigsaw. 

A day for a year, a day for a year
A day for a year, a day for a year
A day is with [the] Lord as 1,000 years and 1000 years as one day
1000 years as yesterday and as a watch in the night

2 Peter 3:8 is the key here. Because the time substitution is mentioned both ways, it is recited as a day for 1,000 years and as 1,000 years for a day. This is a substitution of 360,000 days for one day. We have deduced from God's character that God will speed light up again after the Kingdom of God in order that we can colonize his universe. So we deduce that light has been 360,000 times faster than it is today and that it will once again be 360,000 times faster than it is today. 

Also two substitutions of 'a day for a year' taken together give an increase of a day for 360 years which is obviously a smaller change in speed than taking a day for 1,000 years. Also after the kingdom of God we will all be 'with the Lord' and at the beginning of time, which was the big bang, all of the angels were 'with the Lord', looking at the scripture cryptically. So the day for 1,000 year substitution gives us the initial speed of light in the first morning and the final speed of light in the last morning. It's like the good book says: 

But many that are first will be last and the last first (Matthew 19:30).

Now 'Adam' (by which we mean Adam and his sons) has the length of his 'garment of skin', his fleshly body, changed 3 times, before the Kingdom of God, from 960 year max, to 480 year max, then to 240 year max and finally to 120 year max at the time of Moses, a limit which still pertains today - see U235. So Adam had four finite length, maximum lifespans, to his garment of skin. But Adam was a son of God, and he was made in God's image, so it is not unreasonable to suppose that God likewise has 4 finite speeds to his garments of light. We are deducing that there have been 4 speeds of light in total.

Spelling this out Adam (who in bible terms is identified with his offspring, and so is 'Adam and his sons') had an original garment of skin made by God himself at his eviction from Eden which lasted 960 years:

And Jehovah God proceeded to make long garments of skin for Adam and for his wife and to clothe them (Genesis 3:21).

The literal meaning of this was that God make Adam and Eve some clothes out of animal skins. The symbolic meaning is that God recreated his and her bodies to be ageing and to have large maximum lifespans. Later, after the flood, he got a 480 year one. Then, in the days of Peleg and the confusion of the languages at Babel, he got a 240 year one. Then he got a 120 year one and in the kingdom of God we (we are Adam's sons) go back to actually the indefinitely lasting one that he had before he sinned. But since the kingdom only lasts for 1,000 years we may not wear this garment indefinitely - who knows. Likewise in the case of the speed of light, since this is defined as God's garment, and since Adam was made in his image, we deduce that they had isomorphic tailors as it were. Although the tailor in both cases was God, so we are saying that they have isomorphic wardrobes really. So that God has four light garments which he can choose to wear.

But the Monrose Hypothesis requires a change in the speed of light every day, with no two consecutive days having the same speed of light. The solution which we propose to this jigsaw is as follows:

Creative Period Speed of light (c) Speed of light (m/s) Length of period in ECT years Time substitution Scripture used
7th morning 360,000c 1.08 x 1014 m/s 2,592,000,000 day as 1,000 years 2 Peter 3:8
7th evening c 3 x 108 m/s 7,200    
6th morning c 3 x 108 m/s 7,200 day for a year  Numbers 14:34
6th evening 360c 1.08 x 1011 m/s 2,592,000    
5th morning 360c 1.08 x 1011 m/s 2,592,000 day for a year Numbers 14:34
5th evening 360x360c 3.9 x 1013 m/s 933,120,000    
4th morning 360x360c 3.9 x 1013 m/s 933,120,000    
4th evening 360,000c 1.08 x 1014 m/s 2,592,000,000 1,000 years as a day (in the 6th day) Psalm 90:4
3rd morning 360,000c 1.08 x 1014 m/s 2,592,000,000    
3rd evening 360x360c 3.9 x 1013 m/s 933,120,000    
2nd morning 360x360c 3.9 x 1013 m/s 933,120,000 day for a year, day for a year Ezekiel 4:6
2nd evening c 3 x 108 m/s 7,200    
1st morning c 3 x 108 m/s 7,200    
1st evening 360,000c 1.08 x 1014 m/s 2,592,000,000 1,000 years as a day 2 Peter 3:8

We know of course that the current speed of light is 'c' (300,000 km/s). We have deduced from 2 Peter 3:8 that the two substitutions of a day for 1,000 years or 360,000 days occur first and last and in opposite directions. So this gives us the first 3 and the last 3 speeds in the table. The next thing to realise is that there were 3 Hebrew watches in the Night. One can deduce this from the factors of the 12 hours of the night which are 2,3,4,6. And from Judges 7:19, which says:

In time Gideon came with the hundred men who were with him to the edge of the camp at the start of the middle night watch. They had just got through posting the sentries. And they proceeded to blow the horns, and there was a dashing to pieces of the large water jars that were in their hands (Judges 7:19).
The existence of a middle night requires there to be an odd number of watches. So there were 3 of them. 1 Samuel 11:1 refers to the 'morning watch' confirming this structure:

And it came about on the next day that Saul proceeded to put the people into 3 bands; and they made their way into the middle of the camp during the morning watch and went striking down the Ammonites till the day grew hot. When there proved to be some that were left over, then they were sent scattering and there were not left over among them two together (1 Samuel 11:11).
Typically the account mentioning the morning watch has a people split into 3 bands and the account mentioning the middle watch also has people split into 3 bands:

Then he divided the 300 men up into 3 bands and put horns in the hands of all of them and large empty jars, and torches inside the large jars (Judges 7:16).
This is not a coincidence. It is a hint. 3 watches in the night, the evening, the middle and the morning watch.

Now since 1,000 years in God's eyes are as yesterday when it has passed and as a watch in the night, and since there are 3 watches in the night, then there must be 3 incidences of this 1,000 years for a day substitution. Two of them are visible only to God, having occurred 'yesterday' in a creative day before men appeared and visible only to him (his two eyes - in numerical anatomical symbolism - something which we neither go into nor rely on in this exposition). So we know that light takes the speed of 360,000c on a further day in addition to the first and the last days.

Furthermore we know that humans in the form of Large Homo Habilis appeared around 2.4 million years ago according to archaeology (The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Evolution). So that the 6th creative day should start with a speed of light of 360c, in order that we can fit 2.4 million ECT years into it. Likewise the Dinosaurs, the great sea monsters of the 5th day of Genesis were around from around 208 million years ago at the start of the Jurassic period until around 65 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous period. We know too that the Sun has been burning for around 5 billion years. We know that the first primitive animals date back 700 million years. So the 5th creative day should start with a speed of 360x360c in order that we can fit 700 million years of animal life into it. Actually we have to apply the second 'day for a year' substitution immediately after the first, because they follow each other in this manner in both scriptures: A day for a year, a day for a year.

The first primitive plants date back 3.8 billion years. So we have to take the speed of light as changing upwards to 360,000c i.e. the day for 1,000 years substitution for the 4th creative day, rather than downwards to either 360c or c, in order to make it long enough. We know that the earth's crust became stable about 4 billion years ago, whilst still covered in water (The New Solar System, Beatty Collins Chaikin). The moon is known to be 4.5 billion years old because we have got rocks from it and we can measure their age by radiometric dating, looking at the decay of certain isotopes with known long half lives, and it does not have plate tectonics like the earth, so its crust is not recycled as the earth's is. When the earth's crust is recycled it melts and when it melts the radioactive clock in the rock is reset. So we do not really know how old the earth is. 

The only day left for which we do not have a speed of light in its morning is the 3rd creative day. And the only time substitution scripture left unused is Ezekiel 4:6, so we use it in it's entirety and take a day for a year twice in the speed of light of the second day (c), getting 360x360c again.

This is the justification for the above table, which uses every time substitution scripture in the bible (that we are aware of). It is the whole jigsaw as far as we can see. The table is symmetric except that the substitution of 'a day for a year, a day for a year' is split between two creative days on the later side and combined in one creative day on the earlier side of the table.

2 Peter 3:8 refers to the 1,000 year long kingdom of God in the 7th creative day in the literal meaning. But we have used it here to show that God will increase the speed of light to:

3 x 108 x 360,000 = 108 x 1012 = 1.08 x 1014 Metres/second in the 7th day, in 3208 CE, at the half of the day.

This will mean that the nearest star (Alpha Centuri) rather than being about 4 light years away will be about 6 light minutes away!!!! This is at warp factor 360,000!! Or should we say warp factor 2Peter3:8. The Milky Way is 100,000 light years across. But with light going 360,000 times faster, we could cross it in 4 months!! We would still need worm holes or a further act of God to get to the next Galaxy however!!

From this we can calculate a date for the big bang, which being the beginning of time and space, was the start of the first creative day. Which is very pleasing since we already have the exact day when Adam first slept with Eve - see U101.

The big bang was 3 x  2,592,000,000 + 4 x 933,120,000 + 2 x 2,592,000 + 3 x 7200 + 5992 ECT years ago

=  7,776,000,000 +  3,732,480,000 + 5,184,000 + 21,600 + 5992 =  11,513,691,592 ECT years ago.

So the big bang happened 11.5 billion ECT years ago according to this calculation (Astrophysics has it at around 11-16 billion years ago - The New Solar system, Beatty Collins Chaikin ). But if this is correct then actually the physical universe began in 11,513,689,593 BC. Come on now let's be specific about this!

We do not know what Archbishop Usher would have made of that!

In terms of present time, as we experience it today, 'Real Time', however, the big bang was 92,392 years ago.

Homo Sapiens (not Adam) would have come into being early in day 6, which started around 2.6 million ECT years ago, which agrees very well with Archaeology (which has 2.4 million years ago for the emergence of Homo Habilis).

It is our hope that the rocket scientists in Astrophysics can plug this new initial speed of light of 1.08 x 1014 m/s  (or 360,000c) into their big bang equations and learn something about the universe.

So the light of the first day, the first light is 360,000c, the light of the second day, the second light is c, the light of the third day, the third light is 360x360c, etc.

Here is the comparison of known history with this new biblical decoded chronology for the origin of the universe.

Creative day Number of ECT days equal to 1 day of Real Time  Evening period starts (ECT years)  Morning period starts (ECT years) Historical Events in ECT years
7th God creates nothing new, but can recreate mankind and the animals as they were in the Garden of Eden, and can recreate light as it was in the beginning: 1.08 x 1014 m/s 3993 BC 3208 AD - 2,592,003,208  Man invents writing, the wheel, intensive farming, builds cities with temples, forges metals, decodes bible!! 
6th Homo Sapiens created, and Adam 'man' created and land animals created 2,603,193  11,193 First Homo Habilis skeletons 2.4 million years ago. Man domesticates sheep and dog, makes stone tools.
5th Great sea monsters created (Dinosaurs) and first living sea animals created 938,315,193 5,195,193 Dinosaurs from 208 - 65 million years ago. First sea animals 700 million years ago
4th The Sun starts shining on the earth 4,463,435,193 1,871,435,193 Sun has supposedly been shining for 5 billion years (but this assumes a constant rate of burn of fuel, and if the speed of light has changed ??)
3rd The land masses form permanently and the seas are defined, plant life begins. With light source other than the Sun (General radiation?) 7,988,555,193 7,055,435,193 The first permanent land masses on earth were 4 billion years ago, we believe. The oldest living plant cells known are 3.8 billion years old. Water everywhere. This has the crust solidifying over 4.4 billion years ago.
2nd The atmosphere develops, the expanse between the seas and the clouds. 8,921,682,393 8,921,675,193  
1st Earth is formless and waste but existing at the half of the day. Light is first changed from 1.08 x 1014 m/s to 3 x 108 m/s 11,513,689,593 8,921,689,593 Earth believed to have been formed 4.6 billion years ago, but crust recycling may mean it's older. Galaxies were formed between 300 million and 1 billion years after big bang, i.e. in the early part of the first evening.

So God penned us in on Day 1, reducing the speed of light from 360,000c to c. He then increased it back to 360,000c and reduced it again to c (c = 300,000 km/s) keeping us penned in on the 6th day in this manner. And then guess what he is going to do on the sabbath day, as if one didn't know ? He will release us after seven times, from this playpen, by returning the speed of light to its original value of 360,000c. May that day come soon! Well, it comes in 3208 AD actually, at the half of the 14,400 year 7th creative day. So get your spaceships ready folks please, but get saved first! If you want to see every star in the galaxy - and you can do this for God put them there for you! then you need first to become a star yourself, an angel, being born again like Jesus said to Nicodemus - see [Intro12]

Really 1.08 x 1014 m/s should be taken as the true speed of light, and we are currently at 'c'/360,000.

Recently, and after we had worked out that God had changed the speed of light, but before Bevelyn had postulated the Monrose Hypothesis, researchers have shown that light can travel up to 300 times faster than c (the standard speed of light) - Reported in the Times, London. We would be very interested to see if they could get it to go 360 times faster, or 360,000 times faster !!

Incidentally there may be a simpler way of looking at this than employing Einstein's Clock Time (ECT). This is that Radioactive decay might be 360 times faster if light travels 360 times faster, so that the radiometric dating is actually 360 times too long since it is working on an incorrect speed of light. Likewise the scientific guesses at the date of the Big Bang are based on the observation that certain stars are several billion light years away, but if light was traveling say 360 times faster, then they would only be several million light years away.

Summary:

[1]   The initial speed of light during the Big Bang was 1.08 x 1014 m/s or 360,000c.

[2]   The Big Bang occurred in 11,513,689,593 BC (ECT) according to an interpretation of Genesis with 4 different light speeds.

[3]   The speed of light will once again return to 1.08 x 1014 m/s or 360,000c in 3208 AD.

[4]   At this light speed we could cross the Milky Way in 4 months, the time it used to take to sail round the world.

[5]   The Big Bang was 92,392 years ago in 'Real Time'.

[6]    The basic known history of the universe and the earth agrees well with this interpretation of Genesis 1.

[7]    If the speed of light has indeed been changed as stipulated in Genesis 1, then there is a God.

P.S. Following the work of Joe Magueijo at Imperial College London and Prof. Andy Albrecht of the University of California at Davis. Astrophysicists now believe that although the speed of light takes a constant value today, it took a larger value at the start of space time, the big bang. This theory is necessary in order for the universe to be stable. Without this theory the universe can be equated to a pencil which has stood on it's tip for 11 billion years.
