The Universe is measured in billions of years and I only get to live so little time? Not fair! :'(

Would have been nice to see them justify the earth being flat, in the same way using markers. My point being, what may seem plausible today could be laughable tomorrow.

@ #6: except the flat earth theory is easy to debunk, unlike the age of the universe.

To me it does not look plausible at all, in fact it baffles me every time. But this presentation does a really good job of explaining what scientists have discovered in terms I can understand.

If you only believe what seems plausible you're going to have a really hard time understanding most of physics, statistics, and women.

Anyone care to enlighten me? Why is the cosmic background radiation, travelling at the speed of light, only arriving here now? Sorry if I'm not explaining this well, but it seems to me that if I shine a flashlight, then travel at less than the speed of light in the direction in which I point the flashlight I will never see the light from it since it will outrun me. Hasn't the light from the Big Bang done the same with respect to our solar system?

So I'm looking at this trying to understand the big bang and now this is my question, where is this big dark nothing where the big bang happened in. Is it inside something.......

Big Problem here: The speed of light is not a constant. In other words, light has not always been as slow as it is today.

Thats right, The first time we measured the speed of light was in 1676. Not as accurate as today, but, if you compile the data collected over the last 336 years it is very clear that light is subject to the 2nd law of thermodynamics, as is every other particle in our universe. Light is slowing down, which means it used to go faster. Much faster. There are estimations that only 2000 years ago, light may have traveled 2x fast.

(i) This is a good video with a lot of good info. But it makes "conclusions" based off too many (non observable or repeatable) assumptions.

Not bashing on the video, just saying that if light indeed is not a constant, then the whole premise of this idea has to be thrown out.
--by the way, "Cosmic Background Radiation" is just a fancy sounding word for, "energy that we have no idea where is comes from, its just there"
