This is a response to a recent comment on one of my videos. It comes from Donald Kasper. It’s a great comment because it highlights the complexity of the issue and demonstrates the mentality of the people I’m up against.
If you fully understand my proposal, you’re going to have to respect it’s simplicity. And Donal Kasper, as much as I appreciate him, has completely failed to take my proposal seriously. He immediately jumps to what he thinks causes the cosmological redshift, derailing the topic in the process. Donald disputes gravitational redshifting. What am I suppose to do with that?
What am I suppose to do with someone who disputes general relativity? I’m not Einstein.
Anyways, Donald Writes:
If photons don't have mass, how are they affected by cosmological gravity?
Gravity affects light through geodesics. It is not my intent to offer a new theory of gravity. I am working within the existing framework of general relativity. I think Alfred Whitehead’s thoughts may be somewhat applicable, but none of that matters in this discussion. There are several rabbit holes I wish to avoid, so I have chosen to stay within the mainstream interpretations of gravity. Even still, I am able to completely eliminate the need for expansion or a cosmological constant. It’s an unprecedented claim that’s worth of investigation.
So then, there is no gravitational red shift.
I’m not exactly sure what Donald means by saying this. Gravitational redshift is indisputable at this point. If you want to try to explain it using some other proposal, then by all means go ahead, but that’s like trying to row upstream. All you have done so far is dispute general relativity. I am not willing to go down that rabbit hole.
