I have invalidated the Michelson Morley experiment of 1887-ray

I missed your proof. Could you repeat it for me please?-yanniru

(CMBR) would have long ago exited our area, and certainly would not be coming at us.-ray

That is simply because the CMBR that is coming at us now is 15 billion years old, and originated billions of light years away from us.

You might respond that the big bang originated at a point. Nobody knows if this is true or not. But even if it did, then subsequently inflation from that point produced a universe that is larger than we can now or ever see.

The present location of origin of the CMBR we detect now is 15 billion light years from us in all directions.

Nobody can measure the size of the universe. It may be infinite for all we know. What we do know is that the edge of the universe, if there is one, is beyond what we can now see or could ever see. So any effects propagating at the speed of light from that edge could never reach us. Wouldn't that alone negate your hypothesis?
