Hubble's law $$v=H_0 d,$$ relates the recession velocity $v$ of a distant object to it's physical distance $d$. Today, the physical distance coincides, by definiton, to the comoving distance $\chi \equiv d/(1+z)$, but if you want to know how fast two galaxies at a redshift of, say, $z=1$, you must plug in their physical distance at that time (and use $H(z)$,...

One flaw is saying that the big bang occurred at a location. It didn't: the whole universe was once part of the big bang. So the stuff about deceleration being seen as acceleration isn't true. Secondly, shortly after the big bang, the universe behaves "ballistically" (although following the rules of General Relativity, not Newtonian gravity). It was ...
