The most distant objects within the XDF are more than 95% of the way back to the Big Bang, while a few stars in it are within the Milky Way - 13.2 billion years ago.
In the left pane are the closest objects - whose light has taken less than 5 billion years to reach us. In the center pane are objects whose light has taken 5 to 9 billion years to reach us, and in the right pane are objects whose light has taken more than 9 billion years to reach us, with the furthest of those having existed just 450 million years after the Universe?s birth in the Big Bang.

Research shows the plausibility
You will have to make the effort as it will not be possible to explain it here. NOVA has had some good programs related to these subjects recently. You may still find the information and videos on the PBS site. It's a good place to start. There is also a plethora of information on the Internet.
My suggestion is stay with recognized and accredited sources of information, and not religious or ID related sources. That way you'll get the true picture of what the "other side" is saying so you can better understand their point of view. That is, if you want to form an objective opinion about it all....
Sure... OK... about that proof.
Although their job is not yet done, scientists can show you the details of their efforts and the evidence obtained to date. What, exactly can you show? A collection of unsubstantiated writings from a couple of thousand years ago? At least make the effort to obtain tangible proof, before you apply labels to the "non-believers".
