Make sure you check out the DE thread on CV. None other than George Ellis has been questioning Sean's assumptions. For some reason Sean has not banned him from the blog. In the mean time, Louise appears to be gaining supporters on her blog. NASA might just have done themselves in with the DE publicity stunt.

I should point out that Ellis is actually discussing the GR inhomogeneity idea, as studied by quite a number of relativists. This is quite different from the correct explanation of a varying speed of light, but it does the job of eliminating the Cosmic Blunder. Moreover, this explanation has been considered in the context of Machian principles, which we know underlie M theory.

Thanks again, and I share your frustrations. I wa also kept waiting for years. "Is that THE George Ellis?" Hee hee, Sean doesn't dare delete him.

Yes, it appears to be the THE Ellis. Even funnier: the cosmology group that I was working in for years also have papers on such GR studies. They have seen interest from people even more impressive than Ellis.
