I can't wait for the James Webb telescope to start taking pictures of the early universe. Just hope its mirror(s) aren't the wrong shape like Hubble's.

Wait. I was told that the galaxy was 6,000 years old by some very credible evangelicals. (I'm hilarious on Monday mornings!)

There’s gotta be life somewhere out there at one time.

There's definitely life out there somewhere, however, unlike our imaginations of aliens (relatively similar to us, maybe extra hands or more eyes and stuff like that), I think they're going to be way beyond our comprehension.

If Universe start from time zero than centre of inflation could be anywhere within time range. ..

The history of the universe and the aeons of past time put our petty earthly squabbles into an altogether other perspective - to our shame!

It looks like a teddy bear - nose is upper right.

since we,re talking about pretty long periods of time (not just thousands of years (humans)), it,s not just if they,re out there (which we should believe they are even if it,s beyond our comprehension, like you said), it,s also whether they already existed, or if they still gonna exist when we,re already gone.

It may very well be only 6,000 year old, but God made it look like it was billions of years old, and so presumably wants us to believe it is that old. So the scientists, although wrong, are obeying God's will. Those religious fundamentalists, although correct, could be in for a difficult time when they meet their maker.

Given the limitations of physics, I disagree. And I have seen lots of movies with fairly probably aliens that were not like us at all.

I think its far more likely that if there is a God, and he were trying to explain the creation of the Earth, universe and man to a bronze age people, he would have to grossly over-simplify the truth. It would be like trying to explain to a 6 year old why the sky is blue. Heck, I bet half of JT posters could not explain that one to an adult!

That may be true. But should we also consider the possibility that he created these scientists in order that they create the Subaru telescope so he could find out where that lost galaxy was located? I mean, if you were God, wouldn't you be wondering, "Where did I come from? What's it all about? And didn't I create a couple of galaxies back in the day? Gee, I'm tired.".
