if redshift are not primarily due to velocity shift ?? the velocity-distance relation is linear, the distribution of the nebula is uniform, there is no evidence of expansion, no trace of curvature, no restriction of the time scale ?? and we find ourselves in the presence of one of the principles of nature that is still unknown to us today ?? whereas, if redshifts are velocity shifts which measure the rate of expansion, the expanding models are definitely inconsistent with the observations that have been made ?? expanding models are a forced interpretation of the observational results.
