Big Bang’s Afterglow Fails Intergalactic ‘Shadow’ Test

AiG reports on "News to Note" this week.

University of Alabama at Huntsville scientists are scratching their heads
at a finding that may see the big bang “blown away” in the minds of scientists.
Big bang advocates believe the cosmic explosion is responsible for the cosmic
microwave background (CMB) radiation we observe. However, scientists have long predicted that galaxy clusters in the universe would deflect the CMB radiation, creating “shadows” in the observable radiation. But when the Alabama scientists measured this effect, they did not find any strong “shadows” as expected.
