Some critical considerations are advanced, concerning the theory of the expansion of the universe. The main purpose of this paper is to indicate how a statistical theory can be developed which makes it possible to discuss in a very general way a number of features of the redshift of light through intergalactic space. In particular the problem of the width of spectral lines from distant nebulae is treated. Finally some observational tests are proposed which promise to throw new light on the problem of the redshift.
