    How do religious people explain the light from distant stars visible every night?

    Religious people believe that the universe is only 6,000 years old.  How then do you explain star light that has traveled millions of light years?

    You answered your question by yourself... it is a religious view, not a scientific one... religious people do not need to explain their views... they only believe... how could religious people explain why Earth was not a globe in the past? They simply couldn't, even if they loved to believe this.

    Universe exist from billions of years, and Big Bang theory is an acceptable explanation.

    You're wrong.
    Maybe a few "religious people " do but if you study other religions like Hinduism they don't say that.
    Many atheists intentionally limit their criticism of religion solely to "right wing back woods fundamentalists".
    Nearly all scientists until just a few years ago were deeply religious. In fact many were devout monks!

    Us religious people explain the light from distant stars visible every night by not relying on theoretical mathematical equations to try to rule out God's existence.

    Creationists believe in a 6,000 year old Earth. Only a minority of religious people are Creationists.

    In my religion, we have no problems accepting scientific explanations for things like the age of the universe or the distance light travels from stars that are light-years away.

    This follower of Christ simply believes God and what the scripture says.
    I never believe what any man says if it is contrary to scripture

    Gen 1:3-5    Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

    Gen 1:14-19    Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. 16 Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
    NKJV

      What if the scriptures are wrong?

      mm-- it is not if you use the correct translation of original languages.
