Is the only evidence for an expanding universe the doppler Red Shift?

  1. Sep 24, 2012 #1
    Basically, all more distant galaxies have a Red Shift that increases with the distance to the galaxy, the Universe is expanding.

    1) If there are other pieces of evidence that indicate the Universe is expanding, what are they?

    2) Any internet links describing exactly how the other evidence supports the expanding universe view?

    Also look at this link


    It's got a list of alternatives to the expanding universe with a list of all of the reasons why we think those models are wrong.
