“For an infinitely old, infinitely large universe which is both homogenous and isotropic would mean that no matter where we looked, we would see photons from starlight steaming towards us and this should mean that the night sky is bright. But it is not, so the universe must be bounded in some way.”
The argument is over the age and size of the Universe, as well as red shift and the Big Bang and the expansion of space time.
Big meaty questions and arguments. But the simple facts are ignored, and shit is made up, and it bugs me when I look at the size of both the andromeda galaxy, and our own Milky Way in the sky
There isn’t any redshift involved in looking at our galaxy, or Andromeda
Looking at the center of either one we are seeing what Olber and Edgar Allen Poe and Kepler thought about
Wrote about, puzzled over
An area of the sky that is so filled with stars, well let us read it from Poe himself
“Were the succession of stars endless, then the background of the sky would present us a uniform luminosity, like that displayed by the Galaxy–since there could be absolutely no point, in all that background, at which would not exist a star.”

So forget the big picture, why is center of both our Galaxy and Andromeda so dark?
That’s the reality, they are dark
And it’s because of all the dust, thick clouds of it or thin, the sky is dark because of all the goddamn dust
