it is settled fact that the universe is expanding. It is settled fact that it was once much hotter and denser and more uniform than it is now.
Red shift anomalies say these suppositions are far from settled. Further, Lorentz transformations while they may apply to matter, do not apply to massless space.
You think intuition is an invalid way to access information because you accept the silly notion that reason and intuition are polarites - and must always be at odds with each other. Yet they come from the same source. They are degrees of consciousness utilizing the same type of energy and focus required in analytical thought. They are simply different applications. This falsely perceived dichotomie is reflected in the opposition between science and religion that often manifests as a war between rational thought and so-called irrational faith. Nobody is 100% intellectual, or 100% intuitive because in our natural state, these two aspects of consciousness are blended.
