The speed of light I think, offhand, I could be wrong.

current is said to be 186,000 miles per second...

i have heard talk about the speed of light slowing down over time,

that moments after the big bang we had a much faster rate of light travel.

kinda makes sense- everything we know of that explodes does so at a slower rate the further it travels and the longer it lasts.

That is if their were / is a big bang?
My best friend of my youth told an alternate theory of an irresistable [energy] force meeting an unmoveable [mass] object . . . what I gathered from him was, the universe is a state of dynamic [equilibrium] existence.

Yes, electromagnetic radiation does [decrease] slow down over time [distance] but we call this shift in frquency, doppler effect?

yes, i don't know infact if there was an explosion... i assume it was big if there were?

and about the "red shift"- in tests passing light through various gasses, scientists observed similar shifts in frequency as did edwin hubble. (when viewing the cosmos)
