Space is curved by massive objects. Light goes "straight" within that space. This is very different from the force of gravity on other massive objects.

it seems to me that none of these arguments involve directly measuring the energy E in joules of a single photon as per the E=hf equation.
Thank you for pointing out my dyslexic condition out to me, I think your wrong about points two and three though. I will attempt to catch my spelling mistakes but never I never promise anything. Please provide documentation for supporting your position. below are mine.
"Following the second law of thermodynamics, entropy of an isolated system always increases for irreversible processes. The difference between an isolated system and closed system is that heat may not flow to and from an isolated system, but heat flow to and from a closed system is possible." plenty of wiggle room there if you accept the expansion of Universe as irreversible.
the cosmic radiation background of the Universe's temperature is remarkably consistent. This to me, maybe not to you, presents an ordered system.
An ordered system presents as a constant stable rate of entropy.
The IF in my first statement places all that follows as a hypothetical question as to what would cause an increase in universal entropy in a closed system. If a system is constant and ordered its entropy is constant and ordered.I don't know what this means... (see above for what entropy is)
An expanding Universe is increasing in entropy,I'll agree with you there.
and you may wish to disagree with me ... but a catalyst is require to change the rate of entropy in a constant system. So, what catalyst caused the a constant stable thermal Universe to accelerate in conjunction with an increase in entropy? Its a simple question.As I mentioned above, entropy is not a process, so we can't talk about the rate of entropy. If I assume that you mean the rate of change of entropy, we still still don't need to invoke a catalyst. Increasing entropy is the nature of nature. So I don't see what the question is.
or and u mis-spelled misspelled, do have dyslexia also? lol.Too bee fare, yew gout me their. Butt inn cases four witch won word wood mean x, and the other why, won out too bee specially carefree.
Doesn’t the second law of thermodynamics state that in a closed system, entropy tends to increase, or to remain constant. In spite of the presence of the word “tends”, the assertion “it never decreases” can still be found attached to many explanations. Could this be a source of confused thinking? Even in a closed system, can “time progress” in the direction of decreasing entropy?
Is there a detectable direction in which the universe is expanding?
