I exaggerate slightly. It's actually only 86 years since Lemaitre
postulated that the universe might be expanding. Some people alive today
were born when we didn't even know about the cosmological redshift...!
Then there was the discovery of radio astronomy and quasars and pulsars and
dark energy, missing out a few steps along the way. Whether we have
finished yet seems unlikely. So who knows whether there is somewhere "for
God to stand" ? Seems unlikely, but maybe we aint seen nuffin yet.
