Default Lol, huge distance galaxy actually tiny close galaxy

See what happens when we take science for granted? A 23year old massive galaxy far far away has now been debunked as a tiny galaxy that's actually pretty close.

I wonder how many more mistakes like these are out there. (That's no moon, that's a space station!)

God created it that way. If he wanted scientists to find out about it, he would have let them long ago.

Surely, for someone who places his ENTIRE faith in science, it wouldnt be too much to ask you to entertain the possibility of revising your theory on the concept of religion after perhaps some actual meticulous scrutiny and analysis would it?
You know, rather than just assuming things....

Contradiction you say?

Interesting. I'm sure it would have been revised sooner, except they just now got around to calculating the correct red-shift. In the end it's not like it's a huge deal that somehow changes everything we know about the entire Universe.
