Re: Pea size
In the math, Has the speed of our own cluster, Our own galaxy and our own rotation, Been taken into account when determining the speed of expansion?
Cosmologists, on the whole, are fairly bright guys and girls, and when you take a community of several thousand of them, they don't tend to miss these 'subtle' points.
The idea that "nothing is moving" and just "the fabric expanding" does not seem to be supported by meteors and planets.
In the same way that when you claim that you are stationary, I can damn well see your eyeballs moving, your hair rustling, and your finger nails growing. How can you possibly be stationary?
Is it possible that what i have proposed is just as likely?
Hmmm, tens of thousands of PhDs and professors over the past 100 years, spending their lifetimes working towards the current theory of cosmology...
vs
Tesla, with no training whatoever, having a deep think about these things on a Sunday afternoon...
I don't know, you tell me...
Perhaps next Sunday you should get out your clubs and knock a few balls around. And then tell us that you've as likely a chance of winning the Open as Tiger.
