The Big Bang is a theory...nothing more.. and thats just fine.

It states: that the universe has expanded into its current state from a primordial condition of enormous density and temperature.

It is based on:

Hubbles law -
witch states that redshift of light from far galaxies are constant and proportional with their distance to earth.

this theory is based on a constant that has never been found to this date, never.

Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker metric-
is an offspring of "General Theory of Relativity". The FLRW metric starts with the assumption of homogeneity and isotropy. It also assumes that the spatial component of the metric can be time dependent.

here we have a theory of assumptions and asumptions only. sure they have it all written down in fine formulas but the outcome is still an asumption.

Cosmological Principle -
witch states that on large spatial scales, the Universe is homogeneous and isotropic. Or simply put, the universe is the same everywhere on a large scale.

Again we have a priciple based on asumption, we do not yet know the size of the universe or the scales of it.

extrapolation -
this is the process of constructing new data points outside a discrete set of known data points.
It is similar to the process of interpolation, which constructs new points between known points, but its results are often less meaningful, and are subject to greater uncertainty.

This method basically speaks for it self.

So what is the Big Bang theory really?
A theory based on asumptions, unknown constants and extrapolation. A foundation that is very unstable to say the least!.

There is a general acceptance among physicists that the Big Bang is the best model for the origin and evolution of the universe.

And therefore many. if not almost every new dicovery/theory, in the last 20 - 50 years, have been related or trying to bind themself to this theory.

And many new theories, try to take hold in science, are based apon the Big Bang theory.
And many new theories back up the Big Bang theory. Including the cosmic microwave background radiation discovery as the main player.
But many new theories, are also dismissed, simply because they dont fit into the Big Bang theory aswell.

And so the theory grows, its followers grow and its believers grow.

Small Sourcelist:




I have only seen one other thing in my life grow so fast... and that would be... a lie...

We see redshift from our own sun and yet it's not moving away from us. Yes, there are problems or contradictions with the Big Bang theory as there probably also were with the Steady State theory. The Hubble constant is not constant, because it's not known, and that's one reason why we keep getting so many different ages for out universe.

As for the cosmic microwave background radiation you mention, they might even be wrong about that. Article here:

Big Bang or Big Goof?
