    This paper may be controversial, It discuses red shift quanta, i notice
    reference is given to H Arp, but i leave the reader to form an opinion.

    No, my thoughts are none main stream, this post is a bit of devilment, to invoke
    original thinking.

    well I am a sober man with conservative scientific views and I take
    this offer of an asbestos suit as a piece of impertinence and
    an affront to my dignity
    even it it was inadvertently offered to wolram
    the smilie :surprised adds insult to injury and is not to be tolerated

    I know that Wolram - I was just making light of the reaction you would get if you seriously promoted Setterfield here. :devil:

    I've been "roasted" for FAR less egregious offenses! :smile:

    I'm sorry, Marcus. I don't know if I can behave well enough to survive while Wolram borrows my suit. :uhh: You may have to get one of your own... Hey! you're still alive! You've already got one, you devil. :devil:

    Apparently, Barry has not yet heard about the 2df survey results.
    http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/astro-ph/pdf/0208/0208117.pdf.
    Setterfield is an uncredentialed and notorious crackpot with a cult following in creationist cosmology. Arp is a credentialed maverick with a fringe following in alternative cosmology.

    Well said Chronos; if anyone is interested, I believe the talkorigins website has a good discussion of Setterfield's nonsense about a variable speed of light (it's truly amazing what you can 'prove' through wilful distortion, misrepresentation, and general disregard for data).

    I found it astonishing that Setterfield quoted a 'large dataset' ... of 399 redshifts :surprised IIRC, well before 2dF even got started there were several high quality red-shift surveys, with up to tens of thousands of datapoints. Now, post-2dF, we have the first, second (and next week third) data release from SDSS.

    As so much of the data is in the public domain, anyone - wolfram, turbo-1, marcus, Chronos, Nereid, ... - is free to get it and analyse it to their hearts' content.

    This mission, should you choose, ... do let us know what you found, please?
