Well, you certainly are entitled to your opinion. So, too, was Percival Lowell. Time will tell. Maybe someday you and your fellows will have unambigous, actually convincing evidences supporting your hope for the end of the SCM. By then, not only will the SCM be unnecessary but so, too, will be Arp's Discordant Redshift Theory. DRT can't replace the SCM. It can only call SCM into question. Obviously, DRT has nothing to say about most of what SCM already says quite descriptively. Surely, the SCM is not the final theory of everything, but certainly the DRT is even less. So, are you DRT adherents unwilling to admit that DRT is just another provisional hypothesis, or are you too heavily invested? Little jackals bark, yet caravans continue to pass.
