Aditionally, as far as I know for the definition of a gravity well, it would be that if the light goes in and then comes out it will have the same energy. i.e. it will be blue shifted as it enters the well and red shifted in coming out.
1.You can't refute the existence of the 'red shift' effect due to motion. You can set up lab experiments which can produce and measure it at extremely low velocities.
2.The Big Bang theory has the support of the Cosmic Background Radiation.
3. The Steady State / Infinite Universe idea is hard to sustain.
4. A finite Universe must either be expanding, contracting or 'just happen' to be on the cusp between the two; gravity must be at work, pulling everything inwards.
5. The effects of General Relativity have been measured (you can do this in the Lab, too) and the shift due to the masses would not be enough.
6. You would have to support your argument with a lot of Quantitative evidence and calculation. Qualitative argument is not enough for such a radical idea.
The other explanation of red shift which is different to the stretching thing, is that during the big bang everything was very close together so you were in a huge gravitational potential well and the light has been climbing out of it, and so redshifting, ever since
shemgie: You are entitled to have any beliefs you want but unless they are backed up by, either data or the ideas of someone with data and coherent theory, the beliefs are not scientific. Your beliefs are along the lines of 'green cheese' without some added substance.You can't beat a bit of rigour when coming to Earth shattering conclusions.‾
