The Legend of Cosmological Homogeneity

Authors: Robert L. Oldershaw
Comments: 11 Pages. a bit dated, but still relevant

For more than a half century cosmologists have been guided by the assumption that matter is distributed homogeneously on sufficiently large scales.

The apparent paradox can be understood in terms of the role that paradigms play in the evolution of science.
