Abstract

This talk will begin with a brief review of the way astronomy grew up from ancient times to its modern twentieth century  form. The modern version of cosmology started with excellent credentials such as the expanding universe, primordial nucleosynthesis and the microwave background. However, as will be argued towards the end, the subject is straying away from the scientific path into more and more speculative directions. A plea will be made for devoting some work to the topic of alternative cosmologies.
