This effort somehow is missing one little word--electricity (which  
Herakleitos called "fire").  Much more than a century after Khristian  
Birkeland showed that the auroras are produced by an electric current  
(now euphemistically called "solar wind") between sun and earth! And  
long after Halton Arp proved that "redshift" has nothing to do with  
the distancr or velocity of perceived cosmic objects!The easy part of  
a critique is to point out--verbally--the common sense contradictions  
in established cosmology and throwing in quotations from Engels et.  
al. But what is needed is devotion of all those presently-wasted  
scientific resources to formulation of an approach to the cosmos in  
which the theory of electricity is central.

This cosmos did none of gods or men make, but it
always was and is and shall be: an everlasting fire,
kindling in measures and going out in measures.

Herakleitos of Ephesos
