” I leave you, for the time being, with this to

contemplate (no mathematics required).

Alleged black hole universe:

1) is spatially infinite

2) is eternal

3) contains only one mass

4) is not expanding

5) is asymptotically flat or asymptotically curved.”

**No model is perfect; if it were perfect it would not be a model. Duh! Let us look at another well-known astronomical model: the Kepler orbit model assumes that:-**

**1) space is infinite (i.e. no influence from other bodies)**

**2) is eternal (is not subject to chaotic phenomena)**

**3) has the Sun as centre-of-mass (untrue)**

**4) involves perfectly spherical bodies (untrue)**

**5) assumes infinite propagation velocity for gravity (untrue)**

**The latter assumption, in particular, implies the existence of a torque on the entire system. This is rarely mentioned in the literature. Gee, it is lucky that nobody took Kepler the astrologer and numerologist (yep, not initially an astronomer) seriously. It is fortunate that backward-looking nuts like Crothers and Ron are ignored. **

**By the way, Ron, have you noticed that, when there is a daytime partial Moon, the illuminated part often does not face directly towards the Sun. Do you think that there must be some sort of conspiracy going on to cover up that awkward defect in the standard model?**
