  2. Our family discusses this a lot. While we are all cautiously science advocates, the one issue that keeps arising is around the statement, ‘the universe is expanding.’ I find this statement highly problematic. Any time we put a finite line on something, one can always ask what is on the other side of this line. If the universe is defined as only that which we know, we might be able to say that the masses we know are moving apart. However, if we define the universe to be all that there is, then it must be infinite.
