How many times will the analogy to evolution be mis-quoted, or mis-understood? Doesn't matter. Also, our own Physicist has used the Annie Hall line: "Brooklyn is not expanding!"

At Earth's surface, the outward acceleration away from the planet's center equals a tiny fraction (10–30) of the normal inward gravitational acceleration

Well I have always said that.

J/K...need my morning cup of coffee to make coherent sense of this stuff.

Then we won't discuss how virtual particle pairs appear spontaneously from the neutral vacuum!

Please don't, I do not think I could handle that much nonsense this early in the morning.

By the way, want to buy a bridge?

What's wrong with believing in something coming out of nothing? Sure, the odds are, literally, astronomical. In fact, it would take a... a... a miracle?

So, is light expanding too, or is it unaffected by the expansion?

Next time I hear some Luddite say, "In the beginning was nothing, and then it exploded," I'm going to frap him upside the head with this article.

Learn something for once, why don't you? Or do you glory in your ignorance?

Yes, a greater miracle then God creating everything.

Then you have to have the miracle of life starting out of non-life, and then there is the miracle of order out of disorder, then the miracle of two opposite sexes developing (at the same time), then the miracle...Sure you don't want to buy a bridge?

How about the miracle of reverse entropy? The miracle of increasing complexity in a system? The miracle of an odorless, colorless liquid that will dissolve rust and scale from your showerhead in minutes!
