The original question was: Recent research claims the universe is static and not expanding, but what about the evidence from red shift? Answer by Barry Setterfield The proposition that the universe may be static comes as a shock to many. The research paper dealing with this question by Lerner et al, was published in the […]
BIG BANG: Does red shift point to a big bang? Are there any alternatives?
Answer by Barry Setterfield One noted secular and brilliant astronomer who claimed there is a different way to interpret red shift was Halton Christian (Chip) Arp. He was born in New York City, USA, on March 21st 1927 and died, aged 86, in Munich, Germany on December 28th, 2013. Regardless of what model is preferred, […]
BIG BANG? Has the Big Bang theory been proven by recent discoveries reported in the media?
Answer by Philip Mott Q. There’s been much recent media hype surrounding the alleged discovery of ‘proof’ for the Big Bang theory – but what has actually been found and what does it mean?A. Well we don’t really know whether anything has been found yet. The BICEP2 team claim to have found a pattern in […]
BIG BANG INFLATION is claimed to have been discovered. What do you think?
Answer by Barry Setterfield On the 20th of February 2014, I took the articles about this and discussed it with my astronomy class of high school seniors. We went over the articles together and noted the following sequence of reasoning: 1. What has been found is a polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR) […]
THE BIG BANG? What is it, and could God have used it to create?
Answer by Philip Mott The Big Bang theory was originally constructed as an explanation of why the spectral lines in the light received from distant galaxies were all red-shifted, i.e. at a longer wavelength than that measured in the laboratory. If you interpret the observed redshift to be a Doppler shift, i.e. due to relative […]
BIG BANG: When did it happen in relation to earth’s history? Could it possibly have happened?
It pays to look at the history of the Big Bang theory
