I'm not seeing the "logical-ness" of this. Newton's "logical" outcome was the (eternal) clockwork universe; as soon as we had better math and materials for optics, simple & accurate observations of the orbits of our system's planets was enough to know that Newton was incomplete (or 'wrong,' if you prefer).
Einstein took advantage of more advances in math and materials to demonstrate Newton's shortcomings. The available math was so good, in fact, that he was able to ditch his personal attraction to a steady-state (or 'static') universal aesthetic after just a short while. Hoyle, as great as he was*, couldn't get past the aesthetic that demanded singular eternal-ness as a characteristic of the visible universe.
Don't forget that it was Hoyle who coined the term "Big Bang," and he used it as a knock against his adversaries -- it was meant to convey ugliness. Not very logical, certainly not beautiful -- he was stuck in an older aesthetic.
A thing of beauty is a joy for( as long as your aesthetic can keep pace with your knowledge of reality.) At that point we need someone like Eddington (see below) to say: "We do not argue with the critics who say a theory is not beautiful enough for our appreciation; we tell them to go and find a better aesthetic."
* One of the great issues restraining modern astronomy/astrophysics was the simple question: "What are stars made of, and how do they produce energy?" Einstein didn't know...tho he had a guess, shared among many (fusion). But nobody knew -- no theory could account for the seemingly inadequate temperatures/pressures of stars.
Eddington threw down the exasperated challenge: "We do not argue with the critic who urges that the stars are not hot enough for this process; we tell him to go and find a hotter place." (1926) Hoyle pulled a brilliant bit of Kobayashi Maru-like thinking and used quantum mechanics to change the test -- you don't need as much temperature if tunneling is on your side. He loosed nucleosynthesis on our universe, and it worked. Finally, at the insanely late date of 1954, we had the basic bit that enabled the astro community to accurately theorize on the life and death of stars.
