What specifically is your point?
It’s definitely fun to think about but, in order for this to work the universe would have to be static. The dopler effect proves that we live in a non-static universe that is expanding.
@drunkmonkmeth, so that link….it doesn’t work
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olbers%27_paradox (maybe this one will…I use Firefox so maybe it just doesn’t work for me)
Anyway, I wasn’t familiar with it but I find the concept interesting. That said, there’s simply too many extraneous variables for me to tip my hat to either of these two takes as being more legitimate.
I think you’ll appreciate this if you haven’t already seen it
This one is specifically about olber’s paradox
Also this really informative video done by minute physics as to why the sky is dark
@steven, are you?
This is pretty interesting, thanks for sharing.
Yeah. Stars are not evenly distributed throughout the universe. It’s more like in Mandelbrot’s solution: they’re distributed fractally, in galaxies. That’s why we see the milky way. Anyway if you want fun paradoxes try the time travel paradoxes or this one:
