|Keywords||astronomical objects, distant galaxies, expanding universe|
It is commonly believed that in viewing very distant astronomical objects we are seeing back in time nearly to the origin of the universe. However, some distant galaxies seem to be more evolved, i.e. older, than would be expected. This paper argues that, if we accept the expanding universe theory, we cannot see so far back in time and therefore distant objects are not seen in their infancies.
