Nice.

Mine is stopped at 4:20 as well, since it is the only time-piece in the house, I figure it is correct whenever I look at it. And I check it often to be sure.......

The universe has no center.

According to the standard theories of cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the expansion; it is the same everywhere. The Big Bang should not be visualised as an ordinary explosion. The universe is not expanding out from a centre into space; rather, the whole universe is expanding and it is doing so equally at all places, as far as we can tell.

Are you saying that red or blue shift (or both) would imply a center??
In what way?

It's really hard to grasp the idea that there is no center to the universe...but that's
what they say...the only thing that that would suggest to me is infinity.Just sayin'

Yes. The evidence is obvious. But I have no interest in discussing cosmology on Offbeat.
