The world of physics and cosmology is littered with questions and very few answers. What passes for answers are really more like possibilities than answers and even those possibilities have built in logical conflicts. For example science has determined – through observation – that the universe is expanding and that galaxies at the edge of the universe are accelerating and nearing the speed of light. But if these galaxies are accelerating then logically they must have had staring point and a zero speed. To answer this question science has postulated the Big Bang. At some point the entire universe came into being at one gigantic explosion of superheated energy. The temperature of this energy is believed to have been 10^23 but heat is the result of energized particles which didn’t yet exist. Ignoring that detail -- how fast was it accelerating? That probably isn’t as relevant as knowing that it is still accelerating and nearing the speed of light. It is accepted that the Big Bang (which may or may not have happened) created space and time and energy. Furthermore in violation of the law of entropy this energy organized itself into particles and ultimately into stars and planets.
But if the Big Bang created space-time then where was this infinitely dense mass of energy? Furthermore, current thinking is that in this initial burst of energy it was expanding faster than the speed of light in violation of the General Theory of Relativity. Without getting involved in that contradiction the implication is that if the energy released was moving beyond light speed then it must be concluded that the energy released must have slowed down below the speed of light in order for mass to come into being. But if the energy was slowing down then what caused it to slow down and then to restart its acceleration? Exactly what kind of energy was released at the Big Bang since it was moving beyond light speed? Science now believes that mysterious energy was “dark energy” which remains mysterious and unknown, but scientists believe ultimately it will be identified and explained without resorting to some faith based explanation like intelligent design.
If we accept that the Big Bang was a gigantic release of some mysterious energy moving beyond the speed of light the question then arises is why did it slow?
’s Law says that a body in motion tends
to remain in motion. There was nothing
to impede its expansion or momentum but something did in fact cause this
mysterious energy to decelerate and begin to undergo a transformation from
energy to mass. And that introduces
another question and that is “mass” – where did this mass come from? Did the energy released at the Big Bang have
“mass” because if it did that would violate general relativity which states
that mass cannot exceed the speed of light.
This means there cannot have been mass at the beginning. Science also tells us that photons only have mass
in motion so this mysterious energy did not emit light and is believed to be
“dark energy”. So some pure energy was released traveling
faster than light with an incredible temperature but no mass meaning there were
no particles like photons, electrons, protons, neutrons, or anything
similar. Then were did these particles that
generated all of that heat come from?
Apparently some mysterious force caused this burst of energy to
decelerate and in defiance of the law of entropy – begin to coalesce into differing forms yielding
electrons ( a negatively charged energy field), protons ( a positively charged
energy field) and neutrons (mass but no charge). Newton
In conclusion it seems unreasonable to expect a scientist to follow the scientific method and duplicate the creation of the universe but is it unreasonable to expect that they make logical sense? In the beginning they postulate that there was a bundle of energy with infinite density. For anything to have density it must have mass and if it has mass it must have space but there was no space because the Big Bang created space and time. So this -- their hypothesis is illogical at the outset. From that illogical start we find general relativity ignored, Thermodynamic Laws ignored,
’s Law of Motion ignored, and of course
the Law of Entropy ignored. Where the
mysterious energy came from is not addressed but is simply accepted that it
spontaneously came into being without any initiating force. And there you have it! Science has explained
how the universe came to be without any proof or logic whatsoever, but
expecting you to have faith that they are correct. An example of faith based science ignoring
empirical science and many of its own laws.
Of course there is an alternate
hypothesis regarding the origin of the universe and it is widely known and
accepted – I think it begins with “in the beginning there was chaos …” Newton
