    The universe isn't expanding into anything. It's just expanding. Imagine an infinite space that keeps going forever in all directions. Now imagine that, over time, the distances between all points in that infinite space are getting bigger. That's what an empty expanding universe would be like. Since the real universe has stuff in it it's a little more complicated, with gravity holding things together against the "pseudo-pull" of expansion, but that's the gist of it.

            No. You're still picturing expansion as everything moving outward from a point in space. That's not correct. What's expanding is the metric (in simple terms, the distances between points) throughout infinite space.

        It's kind of a mistake to think of space as being a physical thing. It's not tangible. It has no mass, no substance. It's just empty space. When you look at it through that lens, the question kinda becomes meaningless. What's the difference between things getting farther apart and "space" being "generated?"

      That's not a known fact, just a naive assumption. If you wind metric expansion backwards to its logical conclusion, you get a state of infinite density. But if that state existed, it was not a point. It was literally everywhere in all of infinite space.

            Expansion changes the energy of the photon, not the speed.

            Also expansion is measured in velocity per unit distance, like the Hubble constant being 70 km/s of velocity per megaparsec of distance.
            That fact means that as the distance between two galaxies grows so does the velocity between them. If at the time of emission A and B are moving apart at c then the photon will never cross from A to B. The space between them is expanding faster than c, and it is effectively accelerating.
            This only applies at extreme distances, most redshifts are not this high. c is a bad example.

            But since B is also moving away from some other point at c then it is also approaching where A was at the same rate, which means the net difference should be zero

            It is if the expansion is uniform everywhere, coming back to the doppler effect imagine riding behind an ambulance at some fixed distance and velocity, the space between you expands so the apparent velocity changes, but since you also have to go along with the expansion your velocity would have to equally increase, so even if the distance between you and the ambulance is larger and the distance between wave peaks is larger, your velocity should increase proportionally such that the apparent distance between wave peaks remains the exact same and there is no doppler shift

            I think the problem is you’re thinking of the photon as a particle going from A to B. It behaves like a wave (with a frequency). As two wave peaks travel through space, space expands and the wave peaks become further apart and the frequency changes.

            No, I don't think of photons as particles, the electromagnetic field is a continuum
            >As two wave peaks travel through space, space expands and the wave peaks become further apart and the frequency changes.
            But if the space expands in front of you it should also expand behind you and you should still hit the peaks like you usually would, the only way this wouldn't be true was if Earth was the direct center of expansion for the universe and the expansion was non-uniform, which does not conform to the currently accepted model.

            If you define the problem such that there is no expansion, there is no expansion. It's totally circular. You haven't proven anything.

            Why don't you try a quantitative example and apply your "logic" to the FLRW metric, which describes expanding spacetime.

            Because it's subject to the same expansion effects as every other object, if the line stretches then everything on that line has to match the stretching, if the object in front of you accelerates due to the line stretching then you should accelerate the same amount
            >And it only works for one object
            No, it applies to every object, that's why the expanding space model doesn't work, it necessitates a fixed center from which the expansion is taking place and earth would coincidentally have to be the center of the universe, which is statistically unlikely

            No it's not. Expansion is per unit distance. If there are two galaxies along the line of sight one is stretching away faster than the other. You cannot match both.
            And then in an expanding universe you can look in any direction. All objects are expanding away in different directions. If you match velocity to one galaxy every other galaxy is moving away from you.
            >No, it applies to every object, that's why the expanding space model doesn't work, it necessitates a fixed center from which the expansion is taking place and earth would coincidentally have to be the center of the universe, which is statistically unlikely

            What do you mean by "the expansion can't be equal"? I have no idea.
            Note that every galaxy is moving away from every other galaxy in this scneario, it is absurd to claim you can match velocity to all of them.
            >So? The velocity changes the exact same way.
            There is one observer frame. One "velocity". You cannot match the velocity of two different galaxies which are moving at different velocities.
            >Then your previous point does not stand, all things should be moving at the same speed
            Wrong. You don't understand expansion. All points expand away from all other points. Every observer sees the other galaxies moving away from their position, but any position would see the same. If all things were moving at the same speed there would be no expansion.

    What came first was a great vortex. The big bang is so stupid. It big. It bang. This is such a stupid fallacy. What is big, the bang? What is bang? The big? You don't even spell out what you mean by that, thus you're moronic, and this paradox has probably occurred: the moronic everywhere are in chaos over the fact your moronation is too moronic, and now they all must die because there is no room for them. You moron.
