It is alleged by the Standard Cosmological Model that Einstein?s Universe is finite but unbounded. Although this is a longstanding and widespread allegation, it is nonetheless incorrect. It is also alleged by this Model that the Universe is expanding and that it began with a Big Bang. These are also longstanding and widespread claims that are demonstrably false. The FRWmodels for an expanding, finite, unbounded Universe are inconsistent with General Relativity and are therefore invalid.
