 Just wondering how that discussion came in pd-list, you might talk about Doppler-Fizeau effect?

 I hope you are aware that it's not Hubble, but Lemaitre that has written the 'Hubble Law', and evidences shows that the red color is an intrinsic property instead of shifting effect for most of space objects, otherwise some quasars would travel faster than light...
