Quote# 3011

My own attitude is that the Big Bang is illogical as a scientific theory right out of the box. Assuming that all the material/energy in the universe was once in a space smaller than the head of a pin is totally dumb.

Assuming that God is everywhere at once is totally dumb as well.

Except the Big Bang has evidence.

But then, that would explain why it exploded.

1. This guy has obviously not read that far into Big Bang as he terms point 0, the way they do in documentaries, as small as a pin head, instead of infinitely small.
2. The Big Bang wasn't an explosion, it was an expansion.
3. Turn on your tv to an untuned channel, there's the proof of the big bang.

Like the universe being made by a single deity (one vulnerable to Iron Chariots mind you) in seven days because he was bored is logical right? Sure buddy, we see universes getting made by bored deities all the time, don’t we?

Gosh, yeah.

You're right.

How could so many educated people have possibly missed the "totally dumb" angle for so many years. Thanks for pointing it out, Socratism.

Well, that's me converted.

"Assuming that all the material/energy in the universe was once in a space smaller than the head of a pin is totally dumb."

But all subatomic particles are actually hollow, so they can be squashed down to a much smaller size if you just push hard enough. Hence at one time, matter took up a lot less space than it does now.

Of course, right after the big bang all the pressure would come off and the quarks, electrons and what-not would swell back up again to their current size. Which is why you'll often hear cosmologists talking about "inflation".

You want totally dumb? Look in a mirror.

just because you don't understand how it works doesn't mean it's dumb.

- That's why validity is established by evidence and not attitudes
