I wonder if what we need, in view of recent discoveries by the JWST of massive galaxies only 500 million years after the Big Bang, is a revival of the Steady State theory of cosmology, or some version of it. The detection of evolved galaxies further and further back in time through advancing telescope technology (that actually was going on for some time before JWST) does not fit with the standard model, and was not predicted.

The main discovery that caused the Steady State Theory to loose out against the Big Bang Theory in the 1960s was the discovery of the cosmic microwave background. But could there be some other explanation for that than the Big Bang, I wonder?
