Big-bang cosmology rests mainly on accepted interpretations of two empirical facts: the Hubble redshift, interpreted as a Doppler effect, and the 2.7?K cosmic background radiation, interpreted as a direct echo of the hypothesized primordial event. Recent findings of Marmet, providing both a plausible non-Doppler redshift mechanism and a brilliant new resolution of Olbers' paradox, are reviewed and shown to support altered interpretations of the empirical evidence. These appear to justify renewed interest in steady-state and related cosmological models. Numerous other considerations, including the quasar data of Arp, lend support to this conclusion.
