Recently NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory detected solid (well as solid as anything gets in this arena) evidence that one of the most distant quasar lies 12.7 billion light years away.

The anti-Big Bang crowd have gone into overdrive over this, claiming that the Big Bang theory is "obviously wrong" as how could something like a quasar form so quickly after the Big Bang, which is estimated to of happened 13.7 billion years ago.

They're claiming that a billion years is far too early for such an object to form. Personally I don't see any reason why it is too early, new evidence shows we've already got large clusters of matter forming by that time frame (galaxies in early development), so why not super-massive black holes to go with them?
