    The dust that created the first stars was just dust - not star dust. A star has to die out to in order to create star dust. :secret:

    You do realize you didn't answer the question. You just articulated a "chicken and egg" theory. If the dust was what created the stars, but stars are necessary for dust...which came first? The dust (necessary for creating stars) or the stars (which required dust in order for them to be created)? :scratch: :dontknow:

    But the real question is: why is it one or the other? What proof do we have they weren't always present together?
