Wow. That must have looked really impressive to you when you copied it.<quoted text> You are asking me to measure the immeasurable to justify your belief it can be. The initial expansion from an infinitesimal is theoretical and not actually measurable, since it expanded from every point in space and every point appears to be the initial expansion point. At 10-^37 seconds into the expansion, a phase transition caused *cosmic inflation, during which the universe grew exponentially.

See Space expands

This is just like an inside-out black hole metricÂ—it has a zero in the dt component on a fixed radius sphere called the cosmological horizon.

So you see you still have to deal with a cosmological horizon, where beyond this point it's infinite, and we can only measure the observable horizon.

Trouble is, it has nothing to do with my question.

I didn't ask you to measure anything.

You claim the universe has expanded from a small finite extension to an infinite distance.

And Big Bang theory says that expansion has been occuring roughly 13.8 billion years.

Without measuring anything, you should be able to tell me what average rate of expansion is required to expand an infinite distance in 13.8 billion years.

Or,

"A" x 13.8 billion = Infinity

What is "A"?

Do you not understand speed x time = distance?

Why will you not tell us "A"?
