I'm a new member. I found this site while googling around looking for those minds who like me have had a "problem" with the Big Bang Theory since I first heard of it back in the sixties.
Yeah, that's right, I'm an old fart. But back then I wasn't so old. Just a young guy who was a science buff for as long as I can remember.
When I first heard of the "Big Bang" it sounded cool. What could better suit my young brain awash as it was with bursting hormones? I imagined it far exceeded the mightiest electric guitar chord coming from a thousand Peter Townsends or Jimmy Hendrixes! Or the simultanious crash of drums and cymbals by a million Ginger Bakers! Or all the full throated harmonies ever to be reached by a billion Robert Plants!!!
Yeah! Like way way beyond the biggest explosion Steppenwolf ever imagined in "Born to Be Wild"! You know... I mean a really really really REALLY "BIG BOOM"!
Alas. The sixties ended. Woodstock was in the past. And after decades of recovery one day I sat and thought about questions.
Questions like "Life," and "the Universe". Then separately of course there was the pressing need for "the ANSWER to everything" to be considered. Fortunately I discovered that the ANSWER to everything was "42," thanks to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." And even though that was a great relief it still left the "questions" like "Life": What is it? and "The Universe". Where did it come from?
It's not that I really had anything against big explosions. Well maybe I did come to think of it. But could it be it was just that since my hormones were no longer raging a huge explosion seemed, I don't know, less..."sexy"? Was I that driven by my body chemistry?
Or was it that since I had heard the theory some things had been bothering me about it. Like;
If something was infinitely small and infinitley dense and there was NOTHING ELSE besides "it", (not even SPACE).
And you presume it exploded into that NOTHINGNESS.
You would have to also presume;
1.) It would be a uniform point.
2.) The "explosion" would also be uniform.
3.) Whether energy or matter it would ever expand from some infinite or near infinite density along straight lines. Ever thinning.
Therefore. To my mind without something, like a stone in a stream, there would be no slowing down. No irregularites, no way for compression, or clumping to occur. Nothing to compress the primordial matter (Hydrogen) into stars and galaxies.
I have since read quite a bit about cosmology. But these basic questions, (among many more), that I've had knocking around in my head for decades have never been adequately answered. Not as soundly as the ANSWER to everything being "42".
So I'd like to open this thread to examining these questions and others. I will admit I have come across an alternate explanation that involves a theory of continuous creation of matter and energy. But I'd like to first hear from whomever wishes to offer their thoughts.
TROU (you can call me trou).
