More Bible jokes:
On the 4th day of creation God created at least 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars, including our sun. If only the Earth was populated, then why did he do that? The only reason I can think of is that God is a super duper narcissist. Only by populating trillions of Earths with people to worship himself could he satisfy his craving to be worshipped!
The people who wrote the Bible probably thought that the stars were very near us, probably about where the clouds are. So, we could see them almost as soon as God made them. Modern astronomy tells us that the most distant stars that we can see (Through telescopes of course) are tens of billions of light years away. (A light-year is a measure of length. It's the distance light travels in one year!) that means that their light that we see today left those stars tens of billions of years ago!
Now the Bible tells us that the universe was created 6,000 years ago. That means that we should not be able to see see those stars that were more than 6,000 light years away. Their light hasn't reached us yet! 6,000 light-years is an extremely insignificant short distance on the cosmic level. If we couldn't see anything further away than 6,000 light years then the night sky would be very black. Things like the milky way would disappear!
