...your theory can't answer any of those questions. Both Newton's and Einstein's theories give answers to those questions. What exactly do you think this theory can be used for? Einstein predicted the exact angle of deflection of light around the sun. Einstein predicted the exact decay rate of binary neutron stars. Einstein's equations describe perfectly (as far as we can tell) collisions in particle accelerators. How do you contribute to our society:

"The 1st ALOF displaces the next, and so on. The result is that by the time the light wavetrain from this particular event reaches from a distant
quasar to Earth, the curve is an "S" shape. And the question is: where on that S is the point at which the light is reaching us? that is; what is the redshifting rate as indicated by the slope?
Surely you don't think I can answer that."

Of course I don't. I don't expect that you can answer anything of practical use. Even if (and that's a big if) your theories were correct, they would be totally useless because you can't give any specific information that could be used to our advantage. There's more to science than just explanation.
