The latest story is that after finding that expansion rate of Universe is 9% faster than previously thought now they recalculate the age of Universe and say it must be one billion years younger than previous estimate of 13.8 billion years. The new estimate is around 12.5 billion years.
The universe may be a billion years younger than we thought. Scientists are scrambling to figure out why.
For me, these are not impressive results. These are pathetic. Researchers that include Nobel laureates are insisting that Universe is only 12.5 billion years old.
Universe is neither 12, 13 or 14 billion years old. Their model has inherent problems and they look into the reality only indirectly i.e. through their model. They are not ready to throw this model altogether. Still they are trying to find only minor mistakes in their model and somehow they will reconcile through fine tuning and simple adjustments. But fact is that Universe is not expanding at all and even the farthest visible galaxies may be located at distance of many hundred billion light years. I am going to explain this point in my second upcoming book titled “Philosophy Unscrambles Dark Matter”.
