So you really think that the Cosmic microwave background should be Creation per se?

Needs further reading before deciding, but here nice for just a start, or meant the beer when back from the shop.

But rest in peace for the discoverer, so here nice to know.

It's recently been arranged that the Holmdel, New Jersey microwave facility where Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson made their discovery of the cosmic background radiation will be preserved. There had previously been plans to demolish it. A fitting tribute to both men.

The CMB radiation certainly appears to have been the 'Let There be Light' moment that gave rise to the universe. But one naturally wonders-- if that's so, what caused that light?
