Maybe if we are given a lot more time, we could become better caretakers overall, but so far the odds are not in our favor, and I don't see them improving, human nature being what it is!

    Good thing I don't defend Young Earth Creationism, then. *shew*

    Who needs to involve the universe in that? Our government is handling that very well on its own! :

    Actually, the dark energy and dark matter are what would eventually stop the expansion, and then the big crunch would begin. However, scientists do not believe there is enough of it to slow down the expansion. In fact, the rate of change of the expansion is increasing.

    This is an absolutely astonishing discovery. This brings us one step closer to understanding the creation and expansion of the universe. It's important to mention, for those that are not knowledgable in physics to focus on the importance of the act of expansion and the relation of gravity to it, as opposed to picturing an explosion. It's easy to get caught up a bit in the misnomer "Big Bang" especially since it uses such descriptive (though inaccurate) words.

    Thoughts?
    It is great, and it shows that, using science, you can predict things based upon theory, and when the ability comes that you can prove it, you can. Or, you disprove it....Science wins either way through new knowledge.

    Plus the fact that what was expanding was pure energy, matter did not yet exist.

    Basically, relativity does not say that space can't expand faster than light. Only objects in that space can't move faster than light.
