... make it fit, just don't admit! A newly discovered galaxy doesn't fit the pro forma theory, and it's not the only one!
One of the most distant galaxies ever studied is more massive and mature than expected, astronomers announced today. The finding suggests some galaxies grew up much more quickly than conventional wisdom held.Since the age of the universe and its inaugural cause are assumed, whatever new data is discovered must harmonize with desired PR & PC goals ... no examination of other intelligent possibilities, even as devil's advocates.
"This galaxy appears to have 'bulked up' amazingly quickly, within a few hundred million years after the Big Bang," said Bahram Mobasher of the European Space Agency and the Space Telescope Science Institute. "It made about eight times more mass in terms of stars than are found in our own Milky Way today, and then, just as suddenly, it stopped forming new stars. It appears to have grown old prematurely."Ah, perhaps a higher power has a reason for th ... aw, forget it!
The leading theory of galaxy formation holds that small galaxies merged to gradually form larger ones. But the newfound galaxy is so massive at such an early epoch that astronomers now think that at least some galaxies formed more quickly in a monolithic manner.Interestingly, the photos provided by the astronomical agencies also show stars with redish halos surrounding them. These, Geisler and Turek claim, are evidence for the expansion of the universe, an argument for ID and against natural science's view of the universe.
Other recent observations have begun to reveal similar disparities between theory and reality.
