Hypothesis 6

Redshift isn’t a measure of recession speed

There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

(Proverbs 20:15) KJV

In Matty’s Paradigm we believe that the universe is enclosed in a crystalline sphere called the firmament, so it can’t be expanding. Obviously there’s some other explanation for the apparent redshift of stellar objects.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 6

  • IF gravity is a field emitted from the center of the Earth,
    • and time passes more slowly the closer to the center of the Earth that you are,
    • and time passes more quickly at the distance of the stars,
  • THEN time slows down as light approaches Earth and this causes the apparent elongation of wavelengths,
  • THEREFORE redshift is an approximation of distance to stars,
    • BUT it’s not an indication of recession speed.
