Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You could NOT have misconstrued this, taken it out of context nor got what I said any more WRONG even if you tried. I said: The "olbers-paradox" from the explanation I just read, to me, says that the light from the more distant stars is dimmed because they are receding from the observer as the univ...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

Atla. The "olbers-paradox" from the explanation I just read, to me, says that the light from the more distant stars is dimmed because they are receding from the observer as the universe expands. But you just said that overall light does NOT diminish but instead spreads out. So, which one is True? Y...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

But, because light diminishes over distance, then could this help explain WHY the sky is NOT infinitely bright? Overall light doesn't diminish, it just spreads out, so we would have infinite brightness. If that is what you BELIEVE, then okay. Here it's a fact, not a belief, idiot. Also, because the...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You are extremely contradictory. It's like you are making a collage of things you think are pretty regardless of their meaning and thinking it stands for saying they all fit together without a concern for consistency. To be fair, just stick with one piece of historical step of discovery at a time. ...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You cannot hold the Big Bang interpretation AND a Static one simultaneously. The easy part is explaining away expansion: if the observable universe is expanding then other part(s) of the universe must be contracting or "time" flows backwards there or whatever. And our observable universe will end i...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

You need to first find out how or why the concept of expansion was inferred, whether correct or not. But yes, the 'static' interpretation has to also at least be considered prior to expansion as a default assumption. So you can be wise to hold onto that assumption until proven otherwise. This is th...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

I think that the OP begun well but now needs to step back to express the historical route of discovery of expansion. What many don't make sense of is how even any apparent evidence of expansion should be determined as proof of expansion when we can't literally recreate this phenomena locally. This ...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

There were times when I had thought Logik was a computer program written by some ambitious student of philosophy, computer science or math, and the writer was trying out the capabilities of his code on this site. Obviously there is some background factual material stored in the program, which is qu...

Re: The Expanding Universe -- Why and How We Know It Is Expanding

none of my business, but his (Logik's) reply did not seem to merit your reply. why the vitriol? again none of my business, so feel fine to tell me to fuck off. ;-/. I think Logik is everyone's business, and so it should be. I have replied to him in other threads, and it always leads to dismerited a...

Re: Einstein on the train

On that last sample, it tried to show an ever increasing rhythm which I felt is not as good. I originally heard the first such audio paradoxes from Wikipedia. Here is the Wikipedia link to the ever increasing rhythm which is better: Risset Accelerando These were only meant to show THAT the concepts...
