This was my expectation from the start. Think of the hundreds of Billions they have spent looking for “Dark Matter”. The theory is that galaxies are spinning to fast to pull together / stay together, and therefore there must be some mysterious Dark Matter adding the extra weight to create the extra gravity to hold them together.
All science has doubled down on this dumb for many decades. Dust will block heat. The Webb is an infrared telescope, looking for heat. So they found a crapload of dust and now they are trying to re-write their past stupidity, literally re-write it.
They may have found some other stuff too….like the theory that the universe is expanding from the big bang….surely the universe has sections that are moving, but the Universal Acceptance of the Big Bang, almost as a replacement for religion, was always very suspicious in my view. So perhaps the Webb found that it appears that the universe is infinite or nearly so much that it doesn’t even matter. Perhaps they found that the only justification for the Universe is divine creation, and they can’t let the real God crowd out their various Gods of science, and (God Forbid) the mantra of CO2 man caused global warming…..when it is beyond obvious that it’s the Sun stupid!
Shame on them, shame, shame.
