The current theory doesn't say that all of the matter currently in the universe was once contained in a single point. Our current version of the Big Bang (which, as I seem to recall saying in a previous thread of yours, is called LCDM Cosmology) says that the universe began as a completely empty region of space-time. This region had a much higher zero-point energy (the "virtual" energy contained within a vacuum), and that energy level spontaneously collapsed, releasing an immense amount of energy (which led to the rapid inflation of the universe). This energy, then, condensed to form matter.
To truly understand this theory, you have to understand the quantum definition of a vacuum.edit on 5-6-2011 by CLPrime because: (no reason given)

Oh yeah, please do not speculate on the knowledge of others, becuz you have no "F"ing clue what I do or do not know. Thank you for the read though. Its all about being a trailblazer, remember deny ignorance.
A thought-terminating cliché is a commonly used phrase, sometimes passing as folk wisdom, used to quell cognitive dissonance. Though the phrase in and of itself may be valid in certain contexts, its application as a means of dismissing dissent or justifying fallacious logic is what makes it thought-terminating.
Lifton said, “The language of the totalist environment is characterized by the thought-terminating cliché. The most far-reaching and complex of human problems are compressed into brief, highly reductive, definitive-sounding phrases, easily memorized and easily expressed. These become the start and finish of any ideological analysis.
In George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, the fictional constructed language Newspeak is designed to reduce language entirely to a set of thought-terminating clichés. Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World society uses thought-terminating clichés in a more conventional manner, most notably in regard to the drug soma as well as modified versions of real-life platitudes, such as, “A doctor a day keeps the jim-jams away.”

As someone already wrote, no where in the big bang theory does it say anything about how big the "clump" of matter is. So your tree/seed analogy isn't close to being accurate.
I've been noticing a trend on ATS regarding scientific matters. Some people don't understand matters of science, and instead of learning the truth, they just assume that science must be wrong. Instead of learning about evolution, they just repeat the one thing they've heard, "Humans evolved from fish and monkeys, I don't get it." Details in scientific matters are very important; if you don't include all of the details, it winds up sounding like crazy talk. On a website whos slogan is "deny ignorance" this trend is unacceptable.
