Big Bang Bunk
In the beginning there was nothing... Which exploded.Everyone "knows" the universe started with a Big Bang.  What most don't know is how tenuous are the lines of evidence that support the theory. It started with Isaac Newton, who determined the basics of gravity. This was expanded on by Albert Einstein with his laws of relativity. Then, based on a great deal of math that is less complicated than "experts" would have us believe, Edward Hubble made some calculations and came to the conclusion that the universe is constantly expanding.

He observed something called redshift, which is a measurement of light coming from a galaxy (more specifically, it is lines in the spectrum of that galaxy showing a shift toward the red compared with the same lines from our Sun). He decided redshift could be used to measure distance, and those distances showed the galaxies, and, according to him, the whole universe, were moving farther away, expanding outward.

According to the laws of relativity, for it to be expanding there had to be a force at one point that was pushing it outward, making it expand. This is why the hypothetical "Big Bang" was invented, to fill the place of the force that the math said needed to be there to cause the expansion. That's the part everyone remembers from school.

Now here is what they didn't teach you: The unheralded "Galileo of the 20th Century", Halton Arp, has proven that the universe is not expanding!

Arp discovered that high and low redshift objects are sometimes connected by a bridge or "jet" of matter. So redshift cannot be a measure of distance. Most of the redshift is intrinsic to the object. As a quasar or galaxy ages, the redshift decreases in discrete steps, or quanta, like a sun becoming less bright as it ages.

Redshift is not a measurement of distance, but of age! This means galaxies were not all created at one time in one "Big Bang," they are different ages. This means the universe is not constantly expanding, and no expanding universe means no evidence for the hypothetical Big Bang!

Is Physics Slowly Changing?
An insightful article by Dr. Arp on his website, explaining the supreme arrogance of modern physicists in trying to assert that the "universe It had a point beginning and we were right there!"


Lloyd Pye recommends The Electric Universe by Wallace Thornhill & David Talbott as an excellent resource for Dr. Arp's work, and for the fascinating conflict between gravity and electricity.
