Obviously C doesn't understand the Big Bang theory.

No - it's you dullards that think that everything was "designed". No design going going on here, no blueprints, no big bang 1.0, big bang 2.0 or big bang Vista.

Either uneducated or a troll....I hope. I hope, for this person's sake, that they are under 13, and still able to learn.

This is why i hate talking to uninformed idiots.

Quantify "destruction", then we'll talk.

Besides, totally different things. The instances you're talking about are external forces acting upon already-existing structures, which breaks the bonds holding it together, thus changes the original construction to a different construction.

The Big Bang was an expansion, not a blast, and did not act upon any external object. There was simply nothing to be destroyed (as far as we know; perhaps it squished some other universes when it was born.)

Nor did the Big bang "create" anything. All the atoms coalesced out of the energy by the laws of the universe as the expansion caused it to cool; molecules were foremed from the atoms, and stars were formed, and galaxies were formed - all from natural laws. The Big Bang does not matter at that point.

"If the Big Bang is true then why do explosions only cause destruction?"

Because the "Big Bang" wasn't an explosion. You have *no* excuse for your ignorance, you have in front of you one of the greatest research tools ever invented. I suggest you use it. But I know you wont, people like you seem to think ignorance and stupidity are virtues.

10/27/2009 2:11:52 AM


Actually they do, in particle accelerators anyways

10/27/2009 2:32:29 AM


The Big Bang wasn't an explosion, it was an expansion.

10/27/2009 2:43:58 AM


I hope this is just a troll. I really really do.

10/27/2009 2:49:59 AM


The meaning of the Big Bang Theory is totally beyond your ken, isn't it?

10/27/2009 2:51:17 AM


I love how there are multiple intelligent answers that satisfy his dumb question perfectly, and yet the best answer (chosen by asker, with a rating of 1 thumbs up and 8 thumbs down) is a fellow fundie saying "BIG BANG THEORY IS FAKE"

10/27/2009 3:41:34 AM


I don't know... If C's head exploded, it might create a more intelligent gene pool on this planet....

10/27/2009 3:46:33 AM


Why do I get the feeling that C has never achieved anything CLOSE to a C in any science class?

So what about the "Population Explosion" then?
If all those people asploded, then why are there still people, huh?
Huh? Betcha can't answer that one in your evil Jim Darwen labertories, can ya?
And "Westword Expansion", there's an other fake theory fer yas. I spose ever buddy just got fat tords the west side in those days. What happened if they turned around then?
Hah! gatcha atheist there. DEMONstrate me them sientifical "facts". Betcha cant bethca cant nanner nanner nanner so there!

Come back when you understand the big bang.

First off, your horrible misunderstanding of the big bang theory has been corrected several times, and as has also been pointed out: You have access to the greatest research tool ever invented, yet you show remarkable inability to actually use it. There is no excuse for your blatant ignorance, and a five second google search could have answered any and all questions you might have about the BB.

People like you who regard willful ignorance, utter contempt of honest research and an unfathomable resistance to education as glorious virtues, are the greatest threats to the future of the human race. Your kind of people are the ones that sometimes make me ashamed to call myself human, and the fact that I have to share a planet and an era with you lot makes me want to projectile vomit.

You cling frantically to your ancient superstitions apparently horrified at the prospect of learning something about yourself that might actually force you to see yourselves as part of nature, rather than as lords of reality. You show an utterdisregard for science and claim science as the greatest evil ever to befall our species, yet you have no problems using what science has given us, and your inability to spot your own hypocrisy is appalling.

Why is it so difficult for you people to contemplate and accept the idea that the universe is nothing but the result of aeons of "work" by the same natural forces that govern our lives? Is it an innane fear of death that drives your gullible superstitions, or is it something else? Some kind of deep desire to feel special, to ascend yourselves over the level of "mere animals" based on the wrongful idea that because we have an alphabeth and mathematics, we are somehow superior to the rest of nature? Or is it simply an irrational fear of death?

Death is an inevitable and inescapable part of life, and that's where it ends. I would have thought that the fact that life is finite would motivate you to make the most of your time here. To be good to others, and to work for the betterment of humankind. Yet you don't do that. You cling to the irrational belief that you are somehow special, somehow beyond the basic reality of nature, and thus that you will live on in some misconceived notion of paradise for ever. So let me ask you this; do you have any understanding of the word forever? Do you understand the implications of it? I somehow doubt that.

So why would you not instead do your very best to make sure the world might become a better place for the generations to follow ours, instead of seeming intent on raping the planet with the horrible justification that it will not matter because you're all ending up in paradise regardless.

The thing is; science is the best toolset we have for studying and making sense of the universe around us, and science is able to make good of its claims. It can offer up evidence to support them, and everyone can study and research the findings themselves. There is no faith involved, you don't have to believe in anything or take part in obscure arcane rituals either.

Because rapid expansion of matter =/= chaotic explosion.

"In order for something to be scientific it needs to be demonstrated"

1. There is evidence for the big bang, else we wouldn't even be having this discussion
2. For something to be scientific, it has to make testable predictions and have a way to be proven wrong. Just because we don't currently have the capability to fully test something (yet) doesn't make it unscientific.

David B.

I feel a point-by-point coming on...

In order for something to be scientific it needs to be demonstrated.

No, there is no onus on big bang theorists to create a second big bang to prove their theory. Predictions of the BBT have been confirmed many times by later observations.

Now,with that being said,why is it that no big bang explosion(such as war bombings,911,etc..)has ever designed anything?

"Big Bang" is a handy, and informal, name for a theory of physics. It does not imply that any big enough bang is equivalent, even in part, to the processes that went on in the first three minutes of the universe.

That said, this is still wrong. Mythbusters once showed someone making diamonds from graphite and an obscene amount of explosives.

Why is it that when bombs,firecrackers,etc.. go off that they cannot create things?

They create light, sound, debris and - in the case of fireworks - pretty patterns in the sky. Just like they were intended to.

Like another sun,moon,stars,planets,animals,people?

The only people who ever raise the claim that explosions are supposed to have created stars, planets and living organisms are creationists. That explosions do not create these things simple demonstrates that it is you that are wrong.

If the Big Bang is true then why do explosions only cause destruction?

Explosions do not only cause destruction, and the Big Bang was not an explosion.

My brain is failing to register this one. Really, some part of my mind refuses the accept that he just said that.

It's too early in the morning or something.

I think I'll go vomit now...

10/27/2009 6:35:54 AM



Beautifully written! I applaud! Couldn't have said it better myself.

10/27/2009 6:38:00 AM


Supernovas have created most of the heavy elements.

10/27/2009 6:41:00 AM


Because the Big Bang, despite it's unfortunate name, was not caused by gunpowder or its derivatives.

Read a science book, fella. You'll learn something.
