The star must have been massive in order to have such a short life span. Or should we be revising our estimates of the age of the universe? Most stars are between 1 and 10 billion years old.

Comment 22 by TheRationalizer :

Dear young Earth creationist. If the universe is really 10,000 years old then why are we seeing the death of a star that occurred 13 billion years ago. Believing god lined up photons for us so that we can see them is one thing, but why would your young-Earth god show us that a star exploded 13 billion years before it could possibly have existed? :)

The idea doG created the cosmos just to sit back and watch us struggle with good and evil is an absurdity which they have yet to explain.
