Let's assume that your statement is true, that the world was created 1 second ago. If a planet were to suddenly appear, we could show a sudden disruption in the orbit of other planet and debris in this solar system.

I may be mistaken, but I think he's talking about the universe. If that were the case then there wouldn't be a way to do so.

If I made a perfect simulation program of the universe as it is right now-- your memories, the grass outside your window, the history of this world, the planet rotation-- everything-- and hit "play", you'd have no way of proving that it was a simulation unless you found a way to observe that it is fake. Since everything you see is fabricated and have no way of comparing it to "reality" you would have no standard in which you could definitively say the world was or wasn't created 1 second ago.

Effectively, you can't disprove or prove it without observing it from an outside point of view.

Well, I think we could, he wasn't talking about a simulation after all in a simulation I can reverse time and gravity , but the world, but let's expand it to the entire universe, IF the universe suddenly came into being, that is all the stars, etc, we'd have a dark sky for approx 8 minutes, and there would be no stars in the sky for a little over 4 years. You can't get around the laws of physics.
