That is what the observed data implies.
HOW could you MISS the "or" word in my question?
Might be something to do with being down the pub.

WHICH ONE does the observed data imply?
That redshift is universal.
Okay. Now, is this shift always to the red, or sometimes to the blue?

Re: Einstein on the train

So, to "you" the red shift is a fact. No. As I said: It is demonstrably the case (which I would call a 'fact') that the smaller a galaxy appears, the redder it also appears. One explanation is that they appear smaller, because they are more distant, and they appear redder because they are moving aw...

Re: Einstein on the train

Is there only an "apparent" galactic redshift, or is there a real galactic redshift?

Re: Einstein on the train

To start, Is there only an "apparent" galactic redshift, or is there a real galactic redshift? You can't tell the difference. If a person asks a question with the "apparent" word in it, then I ask for clarification, of what they are actually asking. If "you" have enough patience, then "you" might s...

If you want an answer, you first have to be curious, ask a question.
Okie-dokie. What is the easy explanation for the apparent galactic redshift?

Re: what do humans really want?

To feel listened to, heard, recognized, and accepted for who they Truly are.

To live in peace and harmony with EVERY one.

This is until they are abused enough, and then start thinking differently.

Re: Einstein on the train

BUT WHY would a "model" be NEEDED IF 'what actually happens' is ALREADY KNOWN? Everybody already knows that lightning actually happens, for example. You don't need a model of lightning, because you can see it. The model is for the stuff you can't see - the cause of the phenomenon. That's where the ...

Re: Einstein on the train

A book was written. So it was. Thank you for reminding us: https://willybouwman.blogspot.com Feedback was asked for. I gave feedback. Thank you again for your feedback, but bear in mind it's basically a cartoon strip. It was designed to show how the majority of mainstream physicists think the unive...

Re: Einstein on the train

I do NOT care if the number is 1 or 1 trillion or anywhere in between. My point was and still is whatever number you, human beings, choose on THAT number does NOT mean that it is a 'fact', as I keep saying. So called "facts" like that one, keep changing. Those "facts" are NOT actual Real and True f...

Re: Einstein on the train

I already exhausted sufficient examples of what the " g " stands for and how it is determined FROM the universal gravitational constant, G , that IS true everywhere and that will not change for any practical concerns. The arbitrary choice... Is there an actual universal gravitational constant, whic...

Re: Einstein on the train

Only two things I want to point out. 1. Observe how you chose Newton's equation, not Einstein's one. And so my point (as before) stands. Context! You have constrained yourself to contexts in which Newton's equation works and thus you implicitly exclude all contexts in which they don't. Einstein's e...

Re: Why humans can't get rid of their egos ?

If "you" want to stick with the 'ultimately', then great. Lets do it. OK The "ouch" is a word already grasped and retained as thought. Whatever word use ("ouch" or any other word, swear word or not) comes from a 'thought'. This is what thought tells you, right? No. Thought does NOT tell Me any thin...

Re: Einstein on the train

When "you" write "this" Universe, are "you" implying that there could be another one or are "you" just stating a FACT that there is NO room for such "idealism" in "this" one and only Universe? I am stating it as facetiousness. Maybe there is. Maybe there isn't. If you don't like this universe - loo...

Re: Einstein on the train

Either a 'fact' is a fact or it is NOT. If it is a 'fact', then it is proven to be true in ALL circumstances. If a 'fact' has NOT yet been proven true in ALL circumstances, then it is just a relative truth, AND this is a fact, which is much better to be made aware of and KNOWN. There is no room for...

Re: Einstein on the train

F = (Gm 1 m 2 )/d^2 (...) Now, while this precision is more correct, it is intimidating and unimportant to deal with the constants when one is learning the logic-side of the issue. So you aren't helping. That is the insignificant 'facts' that were muddling the issue Age was trying to express, as I ...
