Much of the new discoveries are very recent and hastily arriving at conclusions isn't wise. Even if the discoveries are conclusive, there are many accepted discoveries which were then disproved.

Opinions are beginning to change.

"Neves’s group presents an alternative explanation. Challenging the idea that “time had a beginning,” they suggest that the state of expansion in the universe came after a state of contraction.

“There comes a time, bhikkhus, when after the lapse of a long period this world contracts. While the world is contracting, beings for the most part are reborn in the Ābhassara Brahma-world. .............
“But sooner or later, bhikkhus, after the lapse of a long period, there comes a time when this world begins to expand once again. "
~ Brahmajala sutta
