Watch out for those speed limit signs posted by Those-in-Charge: "c — it's a law we can live with"!
Re-read Dr. Eric Lerner's little classic, The Big Bang Never Happened
, and point out a few of the Failures to Predict Successfully he described. Talbott & Thornhill's The Electric Universe
points out numerous anomalies with the Big Bang and Cold Dark Matter standard model in vogue today, as well.
The EU paradigm (remember; it's not yet a theory) does NOT claim that the Universe is of infinite age. A proper reading reveals that it is thought to be of indefinite
age, as there is no reliable way of actually dating something that has existed for such deep time that we simply cannot imagine it, and whose "birth" has no living, sentient witnesses available.
It may be younger than scientists think, but even at the half-assed guesstimates of distance to the farthest galaxies we can observe, it likely isn't. On the other hand it may be of a finite age, but it could be substantially older than the consensus age guesstimate range, as well. Or, it could be of infinite age, but the difference between infinite
is profound, and basically in the domain of mathematics, not cosmology. The EU really can't make any
falsifiable scientific claims about this subject, so it doesn't belong in a work which could be leading to a theory. Ref: Thomas Kuhn, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
