    I am an amateur with a keen and long standing interest in cosmology. Having been interested in the subject for as long as I can remember, I have been studying the mainstream cosmology for over a decade, trying to make sure I understand the theory as properly as my lack of mathematical skill will allow.

    Sounds like a familiar scenario, I guess?

    Well, rest assured I am not here to try and undermine modern theoretical physics, I am here to learn, and also to help educate other enthusiastic amateurs like myself, to try to make sure some of the most common misconceptions about the mainstream cosmology are put to rest.

    I have been told I have some small gift for being able to describe complicated concepts in terms simple enough for the layman to understand, but without diluting the underlying message too much, so I hope I will be able to make a positive contribution to the forum.
