This is the title of an article in COSMOS magazine. 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.
