Had to crack a smile after reading this & similar articles.

https://phys.org/news/2023-07-age-universe-billion-years-previously.html

Some people cling to the Big Bang as if it was a holy scroll granted by Heaven. To me, it's too patched up to describe creation correctly. If our universe has suddenly become twice as old as previously believed, why continue with the closed mind concept that "only" dark matter & dark energy can explain expansion. The Webb telescope has moved the goalposts yet again, and it sounds like the money grant people are scrambling to patch up their arguments. My personal theory is we have no idea what lies beyond the light horizon, so Physics is still an open ended game.

Keeping an open mind, open ears, and open eyes are truly what separates the people enjoying life, and those being led by their noses.

The article doesnt mention one of the other theories going around. Namely that there was more than one 'big bang'. It goes bang. The universe expands. Then eventually the universe contracts back onto itself until another critical mass forms. Then bang again. Forever.

All that said, With this updated understanding of the universe its still extremely old and didnt come into being a mere 5k years ago.

Worrying about how many times the universe has contracted, expanded, & re-invented itself (including new rules & laws) is a completely different thread. Ain't my concern, only in this for the short haul.

Theories of the creation of the universe blow my mind. I ask the same question as Mike B 'What was there before'? Also, what is it the Universe is expanding into? Better stop now, have another coffee and get to work. Have a great day!! 🙂

In regards to Mr. H

As for what came before the universe, what mortal would know? All evidence would disappear in the creation of what appears now.  All that matters to me at the moment is making my bacon, lettuce, & tomato sandwiches for lunch at work.

The question is this: given that God is infinite, and that the Universe is also infinite...

would you like a toasted teacake?
