If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

The Big Bang theory depends on Hubble's law to demonstrate the universe is expanding. That theory was advanced before the QED concepts were known. This video examines how QED concepts changes our understanding of light and the effect those ideas may have on our present ideas of stars moving away from planet earth

Well done, Al!

There are other grounds for skepticism about the Big Bang, but yours is the clearest.

Please follow up on your insight… and don't let a sacred cow or two slow you down.

Your post is most kind.

I am aware of other arguments.

I have read that approximately 40% of the established community do not believe in the present theory of the Big Bang.

hi all

a very thought provoking video.i would not love to jump into things but using simple physics we have an immutable law called the conservation of enrgy that states ENERGY CANNOT BE CREATED NEITHER BE DESTROYED IT CAN ONLY BE CONVERTED INTO FORMS.Energy is a critical part of the universe it is also the same side of the coin as matter according to einstein.So any statement detailing the creation of such is falsifiable.the big bang theory may only suffice as a conversion process among the very many.I voted your video,we need some votes to get out of the can vote my for simple video here-
