Hello guys, every "scientist" I have talked to say the universe is "expanding" at an ever increasing rate. then I tell them the following: "hey man, you say the farther away the galaxies you see, the quicker away from us they are moving, right ? (redshift, etc)" they say: "yeah" then I say: "but you're looking into the past, and the farther they (objects) are, the older the information we get (light) is........... so the way I see it, LONG TIME AGO they were moving faster, but not now.... I think it's actually slowing down" and then they just stare............... that simple issue will get rid of: dark energy, dark matter, senseless lunacy. try it !
