Analysis of type 1a supernovae observations out to a redshift of $z$=1.6 shows that there is good agreement between the light-curve widths and $(1+z)$ which is usually interpreted as a strong support for time dilation due to an expanding universe. This paper argues that a strong case can be made for a static universe where the supernovae light-curve-width dependence on redshift is due to selection effects. The analysis is based on the principle that it is the total energy (the fluence) and not…

From magnitudes and redshifts of supernovae, their light-curves, and angular sizes of galaxies to a tenable cosmology

Early physical cosmologies were based on interpretations of the cosmic redshift for which there was insufficient evidence and on theories of gravitation that appear to be falsified by galactic

ANGULAR SIZE TEST ON THE EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE

Assuming the standard cosmological model to be correct, the average linear size of the galaxies with the same luminosity is six times smaller at z = 3.2 than at z = 0; and their average angular size

ALCOCK–PACZYŃSKI COSMOLOGICAL TEST

In order to test the expansion of the universe and its geometry, we carry out an Alcock–Paczyński cosmological test, that is, an evaluation of the ratio of observed angular size to radial/redshift

Observational evidence favors a static universe

The common attribute of all Big Bang cosmologies is that they are based on the assumption that the universe is expanding. However examination of the evidence for this expansion clearly favors a

No Evidence of Time Dilation in Gamma-Ray Burst Data

Gamma-Ray Bursts have been observed out to very high redshifts and provide time measures that are directly related to intrinsic time scales of the burst. Einstein's theory of relativity is quite

Why the Big Bang Model Cannot Describe the Observed Universe Having Pressure and Radiation

It has been recently shown that, since in general relativity (GR), given one time label t, one can choose any other time label t → t*= f(t), the pressure of a homogeneous and isotropic fluid is

An astrophysical peek into Einstein's static universe

We derive here the metric for Einstein's static universe (ESU) directly from Einstein equation, i.e., by considering both $G_{ik}$ and $T_{ik}$. We find that in order that the fluid pressure and

On time dilation in quasar light curves

In this paper we set out to measure time dilation in quasar light curves. In order to detect the effects of time dilation, sets of light curves from two monitoring programmes are used to construct

Unified Geometrodynamics: A Complementarity of Newton’s and Einstein’s Gravity

Newton claimed the influence of gravity is instantaneous; Einstein insisted no influence could propagate faster than the speed of light. Recent experiments to test the speed of gravity have been

Lack of time dilation in type Ia supernovae and Gamma-Ray Bursts

A fundamental property of any expanding universe is that any time dependent characteristics of distant objects must appear to scale by the factor $(1+z$). This is called time dilation. Light curves
