The Age of Creation

I’m reading “Now: The Physics of Time” by Richard Muller. It reminded me that by “the expansion of the universe” we don’t mean that the galaxies are moving away from each other, but that more space is being created between them. When I reminded a friend of this, the person responded “I know this is not a ‘proper’ question, but were does that new space come from?”

Which made me think: God did not create the universe 6000, or even 14 billion, years ago. Creation is happening NOW, and we are witness to it.
