A recent press release from JPL displays a bombshell for evolutionary cosmology. Anthony Gonzalez from the University of Florida couldn’t believe his eyes, he had to take second and third looks at a newly acquired observation from Hubble that consisted of a giant arc where it shouldn’t be according to evolutionary cosmology.
You see, arcs are the light of distant galaxies distorted by intervening matter. This giant arch discovered is being distorted by powerful gravity created by an enormous cluster galaxy! So why would this be a falsification of evolutionary cosmology?
The press release explains this…
“When I first saw it, I kept staring at it, thinking it would go away,” said study leader Anthony Gonzalez of the University of Florida in Gainesville, whose team includes researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. “According to a statistical analysis, arcs should be extremely rare at that distance. At that early epoch, the expectation is that there are not enough galaxies behind the cluster bright enough to be seen, even if they were ‘lensed,’ or distorted by the cluster.”
“The other problem is that galaxy clusters become less massive the further back in time you go. So it’s more difficult to find a cluster with enough mass to be a good lens for gravitationally bending the light from a distant galaxy.”
In other words, this mature galaxy which is supposed to be much younger in its formation has been discovered in an extremely distant part of the universe where its estimated mass is said to be 10 trillion suns and very close to what evolutionary cosmologists believe to be pretty close to the “Big Bang.” While JPL promotes this to be a unique discovery, it does put evolutionary cosmology in jeopardy. The most massive galaxies should not exist so close to the alleged big bang and it cannot be tweaked in order to have it fit into a progressive structure of formations predicted by the big bang.
In the future, more likely than not, there are discoveries like these waiting to happen. Scientists are just scratching the surface with these observations. And lastly, scientists need to think outside the box rather than constrain themselves with failed theories!
