Recently, cosmologists have estimated that some of these galactic walls may have taken from 80 billion to 100 billion, to 150 billion years to form in a direct challenge to current age estimates of the age of the Universe following the Big Bang.

The debate about the 'start' of the universe, or let's say the start of everything... is alway's lively. Some people say the universe creates itself, well other people say that the power behind creation is God.

Well i think before you can have a "Big Bang", You first need some matter ?
I have a theory,
If we look at a "Mirror" as nothingness, then from a spec on that "Mirror" a thread of matter starts to appear...The basic ingredient of our universe.
Only when you see the thread coming from the "Mirror" you also see its reflection, This would be Anti-Matter which would be the basic ingredient of a "Parallel Universe".
From there it could be friction, Heat and then the big bang.
Could that be plausible ?

As stated though, the real question is what existed before it (if anything), and what changed to cause it? Was it the wellspring of a God? The idea of consciousness? Part of a continual cycle of creation/destruction, but on a Universal scale? Who knows?
