Does a finite universe make sense to you?

I have always been told the universe is expanding faster than C. Isn't the expanding space rather than moving galaxies thing just to satisfy the hypothesis that mass cannot move faster than C?

Yes.
If the universe wasn't expanding at or faster than c, wouldn't we be able to the edge of the universe?

I thought I'd add this, to me, the most intriguing thing about the universe is that you can look up into the sky and know that there lies only one solution.

Kev, thanks for your response, I appreciate the clarifications on the dark matter issues. I am not really questioning the data, but wanted to see where people are currently defining the ‘limits of inference’.
Anyway, I shall now do some more reading based on all the information supplied. Thanks for the help.

Do you really think there isn't a single solution? I don't think it will ever be complete, or consistent as far as human knowledge goes, but I think there does lie a single solution. That very fact is what intrigues me.
