There is no such evidence. Universe expanded very fast in the begining and can collapse very fast at any moment.

Back that assertion up with some testable data and we can have a discussion. Until then, any hospital in the first world can help you to remove the cranium that is lodged in your rectum. Hint: It's yours.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

I can give you example from investing. Before 2007 house prices in america have never go down.
Absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence.

Common sense. Before Einstein nobody knew that maximum speed is limited by speed of light.

The real estate market has no measureable effect on the physics of the universe. Head...rectum..... call an ambulance.

NoSky - back away from trying to make some sort of sense out of this line of discussion or you will need an ambulance due to head trauma from the continual face-palming or the beating of your head on the wall that is dimaniac.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Interesting you should cite the discovery of the speed of light. Prior to this discovery, common sense told us that velocity should be added to the speed of a photon emitted by a moving object. It was careful observation and measurement that demonstrated otherwise. CALL AN AMBULANCE!!!

we also have no evidence of opposite. If you think that universe will exist for billions of years you are not different from any believer

No, what we have is evidence that it has existed for an extremely long time and that changes are generally long, slow processes. We have no evidence that universes just end suddenly. Based on that, it is reasonable to expect that the universe will continue to exist for a long time to come, changing over time.

If you want to live in a perpetual state of fear based on no evidence at all, go right ahead. Many of us prefer to deal with reality.
