Abstract

It is shown that evidence claimed to reveal an irreversible universe can be explained in a steady-state universe. The age of rocks is local. The abundances of the elements is established in stars and novas. The cosmological red shift is a gravitational red shift, the value of the Hubble constant being thus derived. Olber's paradox is resolved by the cosmological red shift. The 2.7 K background is shown to be the cosmologically red shifted light from the farthest galaxies. The second law of thermodynamics is obeyed for local entropy reducing or ordering processes (such as life) by excess high entropy, or chaos, being radiated off into deep space as thermal radiation. The universe is then rejuvenated by the high entropy radiation, or chaos, in deep space being converted gravitationally back into low entropy gravitational potential energy, or order.
