If the Big Bang is a 'normal' scientific occurrence, why haven't there been any more?

You're an idiot. Either that or you never went to school.

It's possible that there have been an infinite number of them, and that there will be an infinite number more of them. It just takes, from our perspective, an awfully long time for a universe to go from Big Bang to Big Crunch -- assuming that the Oscillating Universe model even holds true, which is still in dispute.

It is hardly a \"normal\" scientific occurance, but it is a scientific occurance, whose effects can be observed every time you tune out your radio.

Or that they might be happening all the time, but 'elsewhere' (for example via 'brane collisions' in the 11-dimensional bulk of M-theory).
If a big-bang creates a universe, then a second big-bang will create another universe, and a third, fourth, and so on.
Unfortunately, what with us being in the first universe, we won't get to see any of that.
Mind you, it's worth remembering that this is speculation, not hard science (coz o' that pesky falsifiability bit)!

Well, that's kind of why they call it a singularity. As in, only one.

Normal =/= often

My birth was a normal scientific occurrence too, but I don't expect that to happen again.

There have been. Billions upon billions upon billions of them, every second of every day for the last trillion years or so. It's called String Theory. Universes are always being created. It's just that, since we live in THIS universe, we never experience these Big Bangs. Like street construction. it screws up your commute when it's in your town, but when it's on the other side of the world, you never notice it.

if jesus is so real then why is there nothing at all convincing?

Happens all the time, imbecile.
