Possibly the most peculiar expectation of the standard fine-tuned cosmolog-ical paradigm is that cosmic acceleration is to only be a very recent (z < 1) phenomenon, with the universe being required to be decelerating at all higher redshifts. Detailed exploration of the Hubble plot out to z = 2 or so will not only provide an absolute test of this expectation but will also allow for testing of conformal gravity, a non fine-tuned alternate cosmological theory which provides equally good fitting to… CONTINUE READING

In fact it is only the assumption of the a priori validity of standard gravity which leads to the favoring of deceleration above z = 1
