Continuous cosmic expansion confirmed
Zweerink, J; Ross, H. 2005.  Connections 7(4):2-3. CELD ID 19105

Big bang opponents are a diverse lot. Some promote an infinitely (or near infinitely) old universe to avoid a creation event in the relatively recent (roughly 14-billion-year) past. So, they argue that the universe is static or semi-static-no general cosmic expansion. Others promote a very young creation (6,000-10,000 years old) to fit a particular interpretation of Genesis 1. They need the expansion to occur much more rapidly than a few billion years. Nestled in between is the established scientific - and biblical - model saying that expansion has occurred continuously over the past 13.7 billion years.
