So then how did we get all these elements?
Where to begin, where too begin???
Ah!! The beginning!!
In the early universe, as a result of the rapid collisions between particles, there was a state of thermal equilibrium. The reason this is so
important is that things in thermal equilibrium can be quantified. This means that the system can be described by mathematical formulas, and that
predictions can be made as to how the system would would change with time. Therefore, we can follow the evolution of the early universe through these
formulas, even though we weren't there.
Up to this time (just over three minutes past the Beginning) there had been no nucleosynthesis. This was a result of the high energy density.
In order to form atomic nuclei, the nucleons (the scientific word for protons and neutrons) must be able to collide and stick together. In the early
universe the key reaction was the collision of a proton and a neutron to form a deuterium nucleus (an isotope of hydrogen). Collisions between protons
and neutrons had been happening continuously since the Beginning, but their energies were too high to allow them to stick together to form deuterium
This prevented further nuclear reactions leading to heavier nuclei. This type of situation where an intermediate product is the weak link in the
overall synthesis is sometimes called a "bottleneck." This concept also applies in nucleosynthesis of heavier elements. Once the bottleneck is
overcome, the remaining reactions are able to be completed. In the early universe, once the deuterium bottleneck was cleared, the newly formed
deuterium could undergo further nuclear reactions to form Helium.
But, the remaining electrons still had plenty of energy, so it took about 700,000 years of cooling until this was able to occur. The capture of
electrons to form atoms resulted in an important change in the universe. At that moment, without free electrons to interact with the photons present,
the universe became transparent to radiation. This means that the photons were freely able to expand with the universe. These photons had high
energies, which means that they had short wavelengths. But the expansion of the universe caused the wavelengths to get stretched out as the universe
grew. These stretched out photon wavelengths are what we now refer to as the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). They are a leftover from the Big Bang.
We have been able to measure the intensity of this background radiation, and it has closely matched that which is predicted from theoretical
calculations. This has been a strong evidence in support of the "Big Bang" theory of the creation of the universe.
It was the advent of bacterial-micro/macrobian interaction, it is what we are all made of, even the terrorists and the satanists are made of the same
thing's you are, there is little debate that the very, but the one thing for sure is "We are all Stardust, from the Universe, from the
So, hope that the explanation was sufficient, would have written all in my own words, but it was much easier doing it this way.
And by the way "Most mainstream scientists revert to the 'Big-Bang' theory as a absolute coincidence as an actual event." and that is why I use it
to refer to your request.
And, "That's where we came from" or "The thing's we are made from comes from.."
