A Conversation for Universal Redshift
Marshall_R Started conversation Jul 15, 2005
Halton Arp has presented many observational data that demonstrste a need to rethink how we view redshifts as a measure of distance, especially in regard to "Quasars". Apparently many pairs of quasars which have extremely high redshifts(and are therefore thought to be receding from us very rapidly - and thus must be located at a great distance from us) have been observed to be physically connected to galaxies that have low redshift and are known to be relatively close by. It seems from this that the assumption (and we all know what happens when we "assume") that all high red shift objects have to be very far away may be intrinsically flawed! As this is the same assumption on which the "Big Bang" theory and all of "accepted cosmology" is, for the most part, based, it implies that modern day scientists from Earth will be regarded by their descendents of 300 years hence the way modern scientists from Earth look at their ancestors of 300 years before....
