There can be no expansion if Newton is correct. Therefore you can't use expansion to argue against (or for) Newton's ideas.
How so? If there can be no expansion if Newton is correct, then if there is expansion, I car argue against his ideas, surely.
No. Completely wrong.
If his theory were correct then the universe must be finite.
But I am only saying this because you said:
Newton demonstrated exactly the opposite: that if his theory were correct, then the universe would have to be infinite.
Stop confusing me. How am I supposed to communicate with you if you keep giving me conflicting information. Maybe you meant something else, but it is not clear to me at all.
1. His theory is "wrong".
2. What evidence do you have that "most people consider the universe to be finite"?
3. As that belief is not based on any evidence it cannot conflict with science.
You might as well say that most people's favourite colour is red and this conflicts with the sky being blue. Opinions are not evidence. (Especially when I have no reason to believe that ,most people have this optinion.)
No. That's a ridiculous analogy, especially because you misunderstood what I was trying to say. But it is irrelevant, since you are now saying that his theory is wrong.
The only thing that you are right about is that I don't have evidence for point number 2. I spoke from experience; I've heard/read that the universe is finite more times than not, but that is not evidence.
