For a while I have often believed strongly in the Big Bang, but the more questions I have read concerning problems it has, the more I am beginning to think it could be the biggest blunder of cosmology yet! http://metaresearch.org/cosmology/BB-top-30.asp One of the most interesting cases is here: ''(2) The microwave “background” makes more sense as the limiting temperature of space heated by starlight than as the remnant of a fireball. The expression “the temperature of space” is the title of chapter 13 of Sir Arthur Eddington’s famous 1926 work, [] Eddington calculated the minimum temperature any body in space would cool to, given that it is immersed in the radiation of distant starlight. With no adjustable parameters, he obtained 3°K (later refined to 2.8°K []), essentially the same as the observed, so-called “background”, temperature. A similar calculation, although with less certain accuracy, applies to the limiting temperature of intergalactic space because of the radiation of galaxy light. [] So the intergalactic matter is like a “fog”, and would therefore provide a simpler explanation for the microwave radiation, including its blackbody-shaped spectrum.'' Let us not forget why Hoyles Steady State Universe Theory was thrown out the window, it was because of the existence of the so-called ''background temperatures'', among a few other possible erreneous conclusions based on observations. Another one is that the expansion of space is measured by preceeding galaxies, but as is mentioned in the link, you can have a stationary universe with things moving about in it.
