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.

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:
You’re with a guy who can see the future. He has 2 boxes, and knows which one you’re going to pick, so he puts 1000 dlls in the other box. Simple, right? now change the boxes for crystal jars. I leave the rest to you
