Red shift means nothing. Stars don't collapse. There are no such things as black holes.
There was never a Big Bang. The Universe is infinite in every direction you look. Space isn't curved and it doesn't fold back on itself in a talmudic self-referential nightmare.
All gibberish. Every word of it. Face it, you've been lied to. 'Bout most everything.
The job of journalists used to be just to report the news, back in 1974. By the mid-1980's their primary function was to manufacture it from scratch and then make it happen. The "popularization" of "science" that people like Carl Sagan were always crowing about was in fact a turn back towards the irrationality of the Dark Ages which Sagan claimed to want to avoid.
... if redshifts are not primarily velocity-shifts, the picture is simple and plausible. There is no evidence of expansion and no restriction of time-scale, no trace of spatial curvature, and no limitation of spatial dimensions.
- Edwin Hubble (1937)
