God is dead- Nietszche
Nietszche is dead - God
And man never walked the Earth with the dinosaurs: The knowledge of any school boy.
Since no one has actually traveled to a globular cluster then its condition and state are unknown and its makeup and age is assumed based on circumstantial evidence, much like some theists infer the existence of God based on the preponderance of circumstantial evidence. The point I am making here is that in the debate between the existence or non existence of God, methods that you use to validate one point can also be used to invalidate another supporting point. This is true of theism as well. However I believe that you are asking for irrefutable proof of the existence of God but you apply a lesser standard of evidence to the scientific proofs. To be truly fair you should determine your standard and apply them equally.
BTW, the use of Cepheid variables seem to be the most accurate way of determining distance in space but unfortunately Cepheid’s cannot be detected as far away as the edge of the universe.

No, the Earth is not thousands of years old. It is billions of years old. The only way for the Creationist estimate of Earth's age to be correct is if reality itself were some kind of illusion... which is not likely in my opinion.
No, I'm not asking for irrefutable proof of God. In fact, even insufficient evidence of God might be enough to persuade an impressionable person such as me to believe.However I believe that you are asking for irrefutable proof of the existence of God but you apply a lesser standard of evidence to the scientific proofs.
