Remember, energy systems (and what is light other than an energy system) propagating an influential wave through a medium are governed by ENTROPY. In terms of the above illustration, this means LIGHT will always tend to dissipate its energy towards the LOWER ENERGY END of the spectrum over time i.e. the red-shifted end, the place where (eventually) radio waves live.
Take this image (below) we can clearly see the Light Spectrum in the context of the more energetic expressions of electromagnetic radiation; from gamma rays on the right down to radio waves on the left.
can we use this graph (not to speculate about an Expanding Universe, sourced from a 'fantastic' Big Bang, and instead use it) to show how all em radiation will tend to longer and longer, redder and redder wavelengths over its life?
I contend that 'local' light i.e. that which we receive here on Earth, from our sun, hasn't had long enough to show us its red-shifting property before it carries on into space or is absorbed by materials here on Earth. How about this experiment for tired light.
And please don't insult me with, "But, Mike, you're not even a scientist," as everyone understands (or they should) that all marbles roll DOWNHILL. I mean, it's not that hard to com.pre.hend, right?
Let's say that LIGHT DEGRADES OVER TIME via the law of entropy.
Let's just assume that light from distant stars is red-shifted because it's old. We know the SPEED of light, but what is the RATE OF DECAY? Surely this gives a better example of how far that light has travelled?
And this leads us onto the nature of the COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND RADIATION that Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson detected with the Holmdel Horn Antenna in 1964. Look where MY THESIS says 'old light' would degrade to.
YES, that's right, the longer wavelengths end of the spectrum i.e. down in the microwave arena. In fact, I contend that LIGHT or any electromagnetic radiation would eventually degrade to RADIO WAVES, right down at the dullest end of the electromagnetic spectrum.
When we look at CMBR we're not looking at a Big Bang scenario, we're looking at a STAR MAP of very old light. We need to completely re-examine our entire scientific belief system, and examine the FACTS of TIRED LIGHT. In fact, if you look at this footage before, and imagine that the CMBR is showing you star data, you're looking at a SINGLE MASSIVE SUPER SPIRAL (or donut-shaped) GALAXY all around us made of tired light from millions of galaxies spreading all the way back through time.
But not to one Creationist 'big bang' moment.
