So you're suggesting light travelling from distant stars is "taking the long way around"?
Might be easy to believe if space was foamy and not smooth....

But also something to concider also is the clasic model of an expanding universe beiong a baloon being blown up. where stars are drawn spots on the balloon. I'm sure you have seen this description before.
But in this example as the baloon expands so do the dots.
My point is, if Space is indeed expanding then all space should be expanding and matter itself should be becomming less dense.
The other thing to consider is if all space is expanding at the same rate then matter would also be expanding at that rate and we would observe a static universe.
The universe is shrinking and but at smaller scales space is shrinking faster.... Wouldn't that also look exactly like an expanding universe to observers??
