Science and the Big Bang Theory
Science and the Big Bang Theory - How does the Big Bang Theory really work?
Science usually declares the Big Bang Theory as a random, chance event at the origin of our universe. Some instability supposedly developed in an original "kernel" of mass energy, and the universe ballooned outward. One variation of the theory refers to an "inflationary" Big Bang, the suggestion being that the universe developed and matured very quickly in its first moments.
Science and the Big Bang Theory – Are There Fundamental Problems?
Today's Big Bang Theory appears to have some fundamental problems that are glossed over in the relevant literature. The following are some "missing links" in the theory:
Missing Origin. The Big Bang theory assumes an original concentration of energy. Where did this energy come from? Astronomers sometimes speak of origin from a "quantum mechanical fluctuation within a vacuum." However, an energy source is still needed.
Missing Fuse. What ignited the Big Bang? The mass concentration proposed in this theory would remain forever as a universal black hole. Gravity would prevent it from expanding outward.
Missing Star Formation. No natural way has been found to explain the formation of planets, stars, and galaxies. An explosion should produce, at best, an outward spray of gas and radiation. This gas should continue expanding, not form intricate planets, stars, and entire galaxies.
Missing Antimatter. Some versions of the Big Bang theory require an equal production of matter and antimatter. However, only small traces of antimatter (positrons, antiprotons) are found in space.
Missing Mass. Many scientists assume that the universe will eventually stop expanding and begin to collapse inward. Then it will again explode, and repeat its oscillating type of perpetual motion. This idea is an effort to avoid an origin and destiny for the universe. For oscillation to occur, the universe must have a certain density or distribution of mass. So far, measurements of the mass density are a hundred times smaller than expected. The universe does not appear to be oscillating. The necessary mass is "missing."
- Missing Life. In an evolving universe, life should have developed everywhere. Space should be filled with radio signals from intelligent life forms. Where is everybody?
