You did not answer my question:  if there are several theories that can
explain what the universe looks like now, how can you validate any of
them?  More, better measurement, you say?  Suppose we finally validated
some theory.  So what?  What's the gain?

My problem with it sounds like a typical stupid plebe:  who cares and why?
Is there any usefullness to this research?  Any practical value?  Like
finding oxygen on something 500 light years away?  Where is the scientific
gain here?  Providing endless work for astronomers?
