I have been searching for alternatives to BBT and the doppler effect to explain everything, and have been dissapointed to find a lot of crackpots out there. I have recently found this website: http://www.geocities.com/newastronomy/Index.htm and the thing makes all kinds of sense (to my limited intellect) But, there are a few problems I have with the explanation of "extra" gravity from stars and the explanation of neutron stars. Are there any real physicists out there that are willing to debunk these ideas? I've seen physicists "ruling out" the Shapiro Effect for redshifts on their websites, but their explanations were always "over my head". Can anyone do it in semi-plain english?? Also, what about his ideas about gravitational lensing ? I think it's pretty cool and makes a little too much sense. Am I blind??
