For a moment let's assume there was a big bang. Since time is slowed down at higher velocity or gravity, then wouldn't the rate of time been very fast in the first billion years of the big bang as compared to our time on earth? Do scientists consider this when calculating the age of the universe after the big bang? If not, then I would think the universe to be less older, using earth time, than previously thought. Or would calculating the rate of expansion not affect this?
