The tired light theory is an interesting one, and I can see how it can fit well with observations. I like the tired light because it does seem to make the expanding universe less certain. Even the Big Bang becomes questionable and I see the CMBR as a possible detection of light that has given up the last of it's energy due to traveling too far.
I was more thinking about red-shifting accumulating due to the distance from the object. They always mention that further objects are more red-shifted due to them moving away from us faster. But if the red-shift accumulates over the distance due to more and more red-shifting coming from the expansion of space itself, then that doesn't tell us speed of the distant object, just the distance. I guess perhaps I always misunderstood what they meant by the red-shift being due to the objects traveling away from us. It's kind of a subtle difference perhaps. Does the red-shift happen at the point of departure of the object that is moving away from us due to the expansion, or does the red-shift happen during the journey from source to destination. Now that I write it out the first scenario makes little sense as different destinations would need to see different red-shifting amounts. I guess it would be: a) red-shift is due to the difference in speed, or b) red-shift is due to space stretching out underneath the light waves as the travel. Obviously the speed would have an additional effect or you could never see something blue-shifted due to it's actual motion relative to us.
Not that people should be forced to rely on the police, they should be able to defend themselves. But some people opting to defend themselves shouldn't release society (thru the police) from an obligation to assist.
The courts have already ruled that the police do not have any obligation to assist.
I'm sure according to your logic whale oil will soon be feasible again too.
Sure! Once all the oil in the ground has been used up, then we will have to get it from the whales again.
I've posted this in another post, and yet again.
A certain irreducible background incidence of cancer is to be expected regardless of circumstances
I think you have mutations and cancer confused. If cancer was a unavoidable fact then we would not have creatures like the naked mole rat that does not EVER
get cancer. I remember hearing that sharks don't get cancer either, but they are not being used in labs to study why they don't get cancer like the naked mole rat is, so it is perhaps less of a scientific fact and more conjecture.
The very gasses that the say separated out from the galaxies have the ability to cause the bending of light also. It is just like refraction through a medium like glass, but there is no solid boundary that it passes through. Instead it has a varying index of refraction which leads to the very same bending of light that has been attributed to the dark matter that they keep saying is there. The bullet cluster isn't quite the nail in the coffin that the news will put it out as.
To me it sounds like a little circular reasoning. Physicists were looking for an aether and couldn't find one. Einstein comes along and explains that one isn't needed because of relativity. He first adds then removes the cosmological constant. We find things expanding too much so add the cosmological constant back in by the process of dark energy which supposedly involves vacuum energy of the aether, so we have added that back in also. And now we need dark matter to fix gravity also. So the need to get rid of the aether has led us around to putting it back in. Perhaps we went astray someplace back then and are heading off in the wrong direction.
I'm not trying to say I know more than the people working on this. I find it interesting either way though. But I have seen examples of scientists following the wrong trail for a while before it gets figured out. We are just starting to understand that the whole fat makes you fat thing was bad science and isn't really true. And we are all told the pyramids are tombs when no mummys have ever been found in one. No frescas or writing of the person buried there either like in all the other tombs of that time. Some guy in the past makes some claim and everyone buys it for quite a long time before it gets figured out that we took a wrong turn back then.
If you don't get the booster, you run the risk of getting the disease and dying.
Nice way to fall for the lies. Everything is just soo dangerous and trying to kill you. The terrorists are full of these diseases and we must let the TSA inject shit into everybody who walks down the sidewalk.
So you are saying, what, because some vaccines Are not permanent, why bother getting it?
According to the CDC's site: Even though children who haven't received DTaP vaccines are at least 8 times more likely to get pertussis than children who received all 5 recommended doses of DTaP, they are not the driving force behind the large scale outbreaks or epidemics. However, their parents are putting them at greater risk of getting a serious pertussis infection and then possibly spreading it to other family or community members. So it isn't the unvaccinated that are the problem.
In a study done by Oxford University for all pertussis outbreaks in San Rafael California between March and October 2010, 81% were completely up to date on their vaccinations, 8% were unvaccinated, and 11% were partially vaccinated. So people are hyping up the fear for something that isn't even the problem. If you want a prevention, then you need to focus on making a better vaccine, not forcing more people to take risks for something that is ineffective.
That is not how viruses work. If you are immunized the virus gets killed by your immune system and you do not become a "carrier".
And here we have a completely ignorant statement from someone who wants to tell me what to put into my body. Here are some links to the evidence that you do become an unknown carrier after getting the pertussis vaccine.
