and there is evidence of three big bangs in our Universe before this one happened.
If the Universe keeps expanding the expansion will stop as no force is infinite
Unless, the Universe wasn't created by a "big bang".

I think the big-bang theory is a little off or not-so-well-explained... if the universe was empty - with nothing in it... then why did the particles swirl? and mix? shouldn't they have all moved outwards? or is it because of the gravitational affect of those individual atoms, attracting each other?
Also, if the universe was empty, then there would be no friction from it and the expansion speed of the particles should remain constant. Unless there were other forces acting on it. If it's a force from the centre, then we should still end up decelerating as we move away from it and it applies less pressure. Unless that force is getting stronger?
If it's a force from the exterior. Then there must be something out there, and quite possibly not an infinite universe. What's attracting/pulling us? and when are we gunna hit it?
