your confusing what the universe is.
what people consider the universe are actually stars, planets and matter.
they are expanding into nothingness.
because in the Bible, God said in the beginning there was nothing, even a void is something.
the universe is stars existing in nothingness.
since nothing has no end or beginning, the stars and planets can expand thru space infinitely. there is nothing ahead of them to crash in to.
and there is nothing to stop them from doing so. besides each others gravitational pull, which is actually weak ( you can break it by lifting up
your leg or jumping) and which is not strong enough to pull each other back into themselves past each other's escape velocity.
if it were true, the earth would be hurling into the sun and the moon into earth. as a matter of fact they are expanding together at a constant
speed as a group to remain at the same distance, therefore making it impossible to crash into each other and negating each others gravitational
just like if two people in a car going exactly 15mph, one km apart can never crash into each other. the distance remains constant. and since the
road is nothing, the car can go forever without stopping to allow the other car to drive into it.
this effect is seen on the highway were all the cars are going at a constant speed and it appears that you are not moving, only when you see the
trees zoom by do realize you're actually moving.
if there were no stars, you wouldn't actually be moving because there is nothing to move to. so speed only exists relative to another point, such
as a star or your house etc.
if none of those things exist, you would be incapable of moving.
the point is, what exists are the stars, the moon, the planets, the trees and whatever and everything
God created, not the "universe".
if you ever looked at nothing, that is what the stars exist in.
