Christians Believe in Big Bang Theory.

Posted: July 15, 2011 in Uncategorized

I love theoretical Physics and Cosmology, come to my crib I have a library of documentaries, I spend a lot of time listening to Dr Michio Kaku, Lawrence Krauss, Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, Dr. Brian Cox and John Polkinghorne theoretical physicist, theologian, and Anglican priest, doesn’t always go very well with girl who loves “we” watch mushy..I love mushy too 😀 (been writing this from Monday)

First and foremost there have been very many misconceptions about the big bang, f.y.i the term “Big Bang” was originally coined in 1950 by Sir Fred Hoyle, a staunch opponent of the theory. Note the theory

1. Is not about the origin of the universe. Rather, its primary focus is the development of the universe over time

2. Has nothing like explosion but expansion of space time

The simplest description of the theory would be something like: “In the distant past, the universe was very dense and hot; since then it has expanded, becoming less dense and cooler.” The word “expanded” should not be taken to mean that matter flies apart. Rather, all things are moving away from each other.

It is like having an infinite rubber sheet with people sitting on it. Stretch the rubber sheet, and all the people move away from one another. Each things they are at the center of an explosion. It is an optical illusion – everybody moves away from everybody else and there is no center.

The theory is the most comprehensive and accurate explanation supported by scientific evidence and observations.

In 1929, Edwin Hubble using Hooker telescope at Mount Wilson Observatory discovered that all very distant galaxies and clusters have an apparent velocity directly away from our vantage point: the farther away, the higher the apparent velocity (planet and stars were expanding and moving away from each other)

If the distance between galaxy clusters is increasing today, everything must have been closer together in the past. This idea has been considered in detail back in time to extreme densities and temperatures, and large particle accelerators have been built to experiment on and test such conditions, resulting in significant confirmation of this theory.

Independently Georges Lemaître, a Belgian physicist and Roman Catholic priest, proposed that the inferred recession of the nebulae was due to the expansion of the Universe.
Huge strides in Big Bang cosmology have been made since the late 1990s as a result of major advances in telescope technology as well as the analysis of copious data from satellites such as COBE, the Hubble Space Telescope and WMAP.

Cosmologists now have fairly precise and accurate measurements of many of the parameters of the Big Bang model, and have made the unexpected discovery that the expansion of the Universe appears to be accelerating.

Next post we shall try to figure out “what came before the big bang” and we shall focus on Stephen Hawking theoretical physicist, cosmologist and celebrity Scientist who has conquered his physical challenge and used it for his advantage ..visualizing the universe in different dimension using his eyes brain and mathematics, coming up with new explanation of black holes and initial moments of universe 😀

Later on we shall discuss the element of space time in understanding how big bodies; planets and stars curve space hence the gravity craizy stuff!!!Can’t wait

Without adding anything else anyone with eyes can see we really believe that the universe is expanding. 😀
