I hope religious fanatics and athiest activists alike don't look at this as any form of victory or defeat.

The dilation isn't expected to be occurring because there's a blackhole, It's occuring because the matter being ejected from either end of the BH is not experiencing time fluctuation. Considering it's being ejected at almost the speed of light (faster than the LHC speeds by a significant amount) those particles should appear to undergo relatively slow to almost no decay.
The odd and interesting piece is that as the universe expands these distant quasars should be moving away from us at ever increasing speeds or moving closer to us at ever decreasing speeds. From observation of the jets we're not seeing this phenomina and that is nonsensical as either the speed of the material or the speed of the galaxy should correspond to standard observational extrapolation.
In essence it appears we're viewing these distant objects in realtime as opposed to slow motion as we should view them.
C. Comparison with Observations
Quasars have then, a redshift about 1600 times larger than a typical star whose light intersects the same column density of gas. That quasar would then be 1600 times closer than expected from their red shift (when one has used the Doppler instead of the Hubble interpretation). This result is of interest because the standard model shows several difficulties related to quasars:
a) The unacceptable red shift-distance relationship,
b) their unphysical brightness, and
c) the abnormal red shift of quasars that are physically associated with closer galaxies as reported by Arp .
A) Narlikar shows that when the red shift of galaxies is plotted against their faintness, a straight line is obtained . However, the corresponding plot for quasars plotted against their faintness produces a random scatter of points . It is surprising that quasars located at larger distances do not appear less bright, unless the redshift of quasars is not due to their great distance. The model calculated here shows that the red shifts of quasars do not primarily depend on the distance, but depend on their equivalent temperature. This explains why the red shift-distance relationship is seriously defective in quasars.

A funny thing is, I always considered the Big Bang theory like a Western Religious concept that the individual scientists could not let go of despite they had began straying away from the Church.
It is in a way, a sophisticated version of "creationism". Big bang Big crunch, Alpha and Omega.

I've always intuitively thought that the big bang theory was bogus. There are too many special processes and conditions. Sudden expansion being just one of these. I feel that the explanation will be simple and elegant.
Something that can be observed in nature, like a zygote that multiplies and forms a more complex structure and continues to grow. It is pretty amazing that an egg and sperm can combine and eventually become a living creature.
Laugh if you want, but I think that is a much more likely scenario.
