I finally got a chance to sit down and watch this. To be honest, I could have easily concluded that the guy is on drugs. That was one of the lamest defenses of a young universe I've ever seen. He said that, because young-earthers can come up with possible explanations for distant starlight, that means distant starlight doesn't support an old universe. Get real! Suppose one of those "possible explanations" is unicorns? And he himself pointed out that the "possible explanations" he cited are all seriously flawed. He also knows precisely squat about interpreting the Old Testament; he would have done well to study Hebrew and ancient near eastern literature at least as much as he studied astrophysics, because his comments about Genesis 1 are infantile at best.
That's 45 minutes of my life that I'll never get back, and all it did was verify what I already knew: anybody can get a Ph.D. It doesn't mean they actually know anything.
