How come scientist say that when you look at background radiation, or at galaxies forming at the edge of the universe ,then you are looking at the beginnng of the big bang. They say the light from these formations has taken 14 billion years to get here and thus are the beginning of the big bang. But there seems to be a paradox. The big bang came from a singularity. The universe now is anything but a singularity, so whatever we see at the edge of the universe right now, happend much later than the initial moments of the big bang. If you are looking at the edge of the universe then how can you be looking at the distant past? The background radiation that we detect is coming from the edge of the universe inwards, not from the center of the universe outwards. Or is it that the universe is expanding, or did expand, at a rate close to the speed of light, such that any traveling light has to travel an even longer distance at every moment that passes by? Just a curious retard here.
