Where did you get this idea from? Explain how the energy of the cosmological constant "comes from" the expansion. The stuff about "dark energy" is OK, but the claim that it is "offset by the negative energy in the Hubble expansion" is completely bogus. Actually, gravitational energy is such that the closer two gravitating objects are, the more negative the energy, thus with expansion it would become more positive, not become more negative. Also, imagine a universe with NO cosmological constant. There would thus be no "offset". Are you claiming that such a universe is impossible? > > It doesn't have to come from anywhere. The FriedmannLemaître > > equations allow for such a term, and apparently it has been observed. > > Note that there is not a problem with energy conservation, since > > energy isn't conserved in general relativity anyway. > > That is not true. Energy is conserved in GR, with the obvious > caveat that we have to adopt a sensible definition of energy. > http://www.physics.adelaide.edu.au/~...energy_gr.html Quoting from this: The Cosmic Background Radiation (CBR) has redshifted over billions of years. Each photon gets redder and redder. What happens to this energy? Cosmologists model the expanding universe with FriedmannRobertsonWalker (FRW) spacetimes. (The familiar "expanding balloon speckled with galaxies" belongs to this class of models.) The FRW spacetimes are neither static nor asymptotically flat. Those who harbor no qualms about pseudo tensors will say that radiant energy becomes gravitational energy. Others will say that the energy is simply lost. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^ The issue is much more complicated than the "this link proves that energy is conserved" you claim. > > (Imagine a universe consisting only of radiation. It expands. > > The number of photons remains the same, but the energy of each > > decreases due to the redshift. No, this lost energy does not do > > the work of expanding the universe.) Give a "sensible definition of energy", which is not adhoc, which is conserved in this case. > Then why does a radiantfilled universe decelerate faster than > a matterfilled universe?

Presumably, two universes which are otherwise equivalent decelerate differently. What does "otherwise equivalent" mean here? The expansion histories are obviously different; WHEN does it "decelerate faster"?
