"Dark Energy Is a Fiction"

This is the title of an article in DAILY GALAXY. The article refers to researchers in Spain who have submitted to Physical Review D. They conclude that "cosmic acceleration" is an illusion caused by time itself slowing down. Time slowing down is mathematically equivalent to a changing speed of light!

Dark Energy Is a Fiction

When the speed of light itself is not constant, scientists will need some constant to anchor their reality. Logically it is much simpler to consider time flowing at a constant rate, and light to be slowing. We would then need to determine whether the $ \mu $ or $ \epsilon $, which are both related to c, change. Rather than today's shrinking job market, a c change would keep physicists busy for years.

And they cite you?

Did you see that the string theorists are now calling themselves Dead Parrot salespeople?

What is the relation between time and light? If one slows down the other seems to accelerate? Something inverse?

If you reach the speed of light there is no time nor gravity?

It should be noted that while they reject acceleration, they buy into the big bang itself. Better would be to use a changing speed of light to explain both the big bang and the acceleration. Then they're compatible with Louise Riofrio.
