I have a similiar theory, but one important difference. Your theory assumes there is one big bang. At the center of each galaxy is a supermassive black hole. They do merge when galaxies collide. My theory is that there are/have been multiple big bangs when one of the blackholes explode. Basically, the big bang is a localized phenomenon. Other then that, our theories are pretty darn close.

so essentially the universe is created then after billions of years it starts to die, then once all the matter and energy is one place again the whole thing starts again..
wonder how long the cycle would last?
-The black holes begin absorbing mass and energy
-More and more black holes are formed as more and more stars die, all the while mass and energy is absobed into these black holes
-Eventually all mass and energy has been absorbed into these black holes
-The huge gravitational pull of the black holes attract them towards each other
Will the Universe expand forever or recollapse?
This depends on the ratio of the density of the Universe to the critical density. If the density is higher than the critical density the Universe will recollapse in a Big Crunch. But current data suggest that the density is less than or equal to the critical density so the Universe will expand forever. See Part 3 of the tutorial for more information.
What about the oscillating Universe?
If the Universe recollapses, then there is another singularity at the time of the Big Crunch. A singularity means that the laws of physics break down, so we have no way to predict whether the Big Crunch will connect to another cycle of expansion. Even if the density were high enough to cause a recollapse, there would be no guarantee that the Universe would oscillate. But the current evidence is strongly against any recollapse, which would rule out the oscillating Universe. See PBS or Ask an Astronomer about this.

I believe some scientists believe the universe is moving apart and outwards which may make the above parts of your theory wrong as matter is moving away and unable to be redrawn in on itself to crete another big bang.

Likewise just because I think it was random doesn't mean that it was.
Don't call theories insane, basing your judgment entirely on your own oppinion.
As you agreed matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed, just transformed from one form to the other, so it has always been there, there is no creation if creation is impossible.
But also, as you said, we may just not be able to comprehend theses things yet, the laws of physics have never actually been proven, just observed to be true, so there may be something else that we're missing or got wrong that could explain it.
I just came up with the theory because it is the only way i can explain to myself how something that can't be created can exist....through eternal existance and cycles.
For everybody else, please don't come to this topic and call other people's theories insane, unless of course you somehow know for certain that it is and can back it up with proof..not just oppinion.
This is about discussion, not getting your own idea across and calling everything else ludicrous.
