Nearly 14 billion years ago, there was nothing and nowhere. Then, due to a random fluctuation in a completely empty void, a universe exploded into existence. Something the size of a subatomic particle inflated to unimaginably huge size in a fraction of a second, driven apart by negative-pressure vacuum energy. Scientists call this theory for the origin of the universe the Big Bang.
4. The new discovery also has significant implications for the Judeo-Christian worldview, offering strong support for biblical beliefs. Here's how. The prevalent theory of cosmic origins prior to the Big Bang theory was the “Steady State,” which argued that the universe has always existed, without a beginning that necessitated a cause.
Overturning a theory – Steady State vs Big Bang. steady_state_big_bangWhat happens when you have two theories that contradict each other, as is the case with the Steady State and Big Bang theories? For a very brief summery on these theories. the Steady State theory says the universe is Steady and doesn’t change whereas the Big Bang theory says the universe started at some point in time in a ‘big bang’. In this case, scientists make observations, hypothesis and testable predictions to figur…
New independent climate analysis reveals what may be the greatest flaw in modern climate science- a simplistic over-reliance on the assumption of steady state atmospheric conditions. New research from France employs a two-way formulation for heat evacuation by radiation from the planet rather than the standard one-dimensional 'greenhouse gas theory.'
Hello, It now appears some scientists are starting to question the big bang theory & replacing it with the "steady state theory" instead. Personally speaking I can more readily accept our Universe has always existed then being created by a big bang (from nothing) some time in the past. Regards Peter !
"I have tried to read philosophers of all ages and have found many illuminating ideas but no steady progress toward deeper knowledge and understanding. Science, however, gives me the feeling of steady progress: I am convinced that theoretical physics is actual philosophy. It has revolutionized fundamental concepts... and it has taught us new methods of thinking... which are applicable far beyond physics." ~ Max Born (1882-1970)
Hello, If your a supporter of the "Steady State Theory" (like me) theoretically you can't dismiss the "Oscillating Theory" due to the fact it includes the provision for a Universe always being in existence. Regards Peter !
