There's not nearly enough time for radiation to become so....uniform.
Oh! How much time would that take, then? Show us your calculations - or at least show Cavediver and Son Goku.

I don't know where you live, LS, but in the various English-speaking places that I have lived "it could not have possibly" has never meant the same as "I don't know how," except among a few arrogant, ignorant folks. These are the sort of people of whom my mother was known to say, "I'd like to buy him at my price and sell him at his."
Guth's "inflation" is over 30 years old now. WMAP has confirmed its predictions. You might read the rest of your Wikipedia link and some of its links to learn more.

And Faulkner says "it could not have possibly" where, exactly, in that ramble on polarization? The same Faulkner who writes about the Earth/Moon system being 6000 years old??

"The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails." H L Mencken
