Glimpse at Early Universe Reveals Surprisingly Mature Galaxies :
OOPS. Thought the Big Bang was a random event. Hmmmm. Looks like Intelligent Design raises its head once again…

“Observations challenge standing view of how and when galaxies formed
A rare glimpse back in time into the universe’s early evolution has revealed something startling: mature, fully formed galaxies where scientists expected to discover little more than infants.
‘Up until now, we assumed that galaxies were just beginning to form between 8 and 11 billion years ago, but what we found suggests that that is not the case,’ said Karl Glazebrook, associate professor of physics and astronomy in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and co-principal author of a paper in the July 8 issue of Nature. ‘It seems that an unexpectedly large fraction of stars in big galaxies were already in place early in the universe’s formation, and that challenges what we’ve believed. We thought massive galaxies came much later.’ “
