Ok so if you are at one end and I at the other end and we look away from each other what would we see ? Unless you are suggesting there is no center of the universe but I can't imagine how that could be .
Attacking young earth creationism is just an easy target that makes people feel smart and smug about themselves. There are many other creationism theories but this is the only one that gets attention.
Creationism how WE are taught/told is not science.
As a believer in intelligent design, i'm not sure how/who/why/where/when. So therefore, not knowing this, i can't say it's definitely NOT science.
One question that has always puzzled me was that if you look in one direction to the end of the universe and then look in the opposite direction do we end up being in the center or is one way further than the other ?

The universe maybe vastly older and bigger than we thought, we just have no way of knowing this as our technology can only see so far out into the universe.
The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model that describes the early development of the Universe, which is calculated to have begun 13.798 ± 0.037 billion years ago.

The observable universe is about 46 billion light years in radius.

Science can ONLY prove what the observer sets out to prove.

Are you saying the universe is circular or that it folds back on its self because when I think of a balloon I imagine a round object? I am still a bit confused though. I understand the telescope is theoretical but it only can see in a strait direction I just do not understand how that can bend around the "balloon" so we see ourselves. Can you clear this up?
Then you really do not understand the scientific process. One does not set about trying to prove one's theory, you try to disprove it so what remains are verifiable evidence or processes.
Evolution requires the same in the discoveries of human beings who are testing things relative to the world as they know it. I'm sure to get ripped for this but come on. Science is just as far fetched as creationism if you have a COMPLETELY open mind.
