The redshift of the quasar puts it about 15 times further away from the earth than the galaxy... yet there's a picture of the quasar between us and the galaxy. How is that possible? PCM(40): Feryl, my approach would be easy to test without having to interpret pictures. PCM(40): I have NO idea whether these guys are talking total rubbish in that regard. Feryl(40): So you don't feel that the picture falsifies the red shift assumption all by itself?

PCM(40): You'd need to be in the field to know about these things, unless that would also brainwash you :) Feryl(40): Geoffrey Burbidge added that the fact that the quasar is so close to the center of this galaxy, only 8 arc seconds from the nucleus, and does not appear to be shrouded in any way by interstellar gas make it highly unlikely that the quasar lies far behind the galaxy, its light shining through the galaxy near its center by "an accident of projection." PCM(40): But my suggestion would be a rather simple way to approach the whole thing from a different angle in any case PCM(40): Feryl, the thing is, I never heard of Geoffrey Burbidge, for all I know you could have wrote this article 15 minutes ago.
