Today, we look at time going backward. We see 15 billion years. Looking forward from when the universe is very small - billions of times smaller - the Torah says six days. In truth, they both may be correct. What's exciting about the last few years in cosmology is we now have quantified the data to know the relationship of the "view of time" from the beginning, relative to the "view of time" today. It's not science fiction any longer. Any one of a dozen physics text books all bring the same number. The general relationship between time near the beginning and time today is a million million. That's a 1 with 12 zeros after it. So when a view from the beginning looking forward says "I'm sending you a pulse every second," would we see it every second? No. We'd see it every million million seconds. Because that's the stretching effect of the expansion of the universe.
The Torah doesn't say every second, does it? It says Six Days. How would we see those six days? If the Torah says we're sending information for six days, would we receive that information as six days? No. We would receive that information as six million million days. Because the Torah's perspective is from the beginning looking forward. Six million million days is a very interesting number. What would that be in years? Divide by 365 and it comes out to be 16 billion years. Essentially the estimate of the age of the universe. Not a bad guess for 3000 years ago.

Several things I see here that are flaws in his argument.
1. Because you're trying to fit 2 distinct sets of time frames into each other, he could easily distort this into 100 billion years, 1 trillion years, 500,000 years, or anything else. Once again, its the problem with creation in that its philosophy is "Here is our conclusion" lets go find evidence for it.
2. The idea of "Absolute Time" violates the theory of relativity.

he knowns the physics and science is right so cant do a hovind and just make it all up, so he then has to justify and rationalise his beliefes against the evidence of science and find away to make it work with science
its appologetics at its best
thats why most high level sceintists(who are religeous) tend to be panthiests that enjoy a bit of theist ceremony now and again for various reasons

very interesting video. thanks.
i wasn't aware of these facts...
perhaps indeed the relativity theory
is encoded within the bible.
and 6 days are in fact 15.75 billion years.
and time was created on day 1.
