A question is haunting me. What happens when the new giant telescopes find a galaxy this is older than the age of the big bang theory. Already scientists have found galaxies that are right on the edge of time that is galaxies that are only a few hundred million years younger than the time when the big bang was supposed to have occurred. But, we have just begun to see into the past.
The real impact of what has to be an inevitable discovery is how scientists will justify the concept that the big bang is the beginning of time. Eventually we will be able to see beyond the extent of the big bang distribution. Then what will be the justification for the existence of galaxies formed outside the big bang?
I would predict that within twenty-five years Humanity will begin finding anomalies that falling outside the big bang time frame. Then what? What say ye, astronomers?
