Distant Star light - Decay of the speed of light.

The idea that the speed of light had decreased since creation, was first proposed by Barry Setterfield in the 1980's. While it initially resulted in some excitement  It was based on the some old measurements of the speed of light, most of which are highly inaccurate and the oldest of which has been recalculated showing an error in the original calculation  with the corrected value within the margin of error of the accepted value for the speed of light. While it still has its supporters It has fallen out of favor.


Despite its failing C-decay stands out the first scientific theory proposed by Young Earth Creationists to solve the distant star light problem. It's real legacy is that it sparked the idea the the distant star light problem might have a scientific solution.
