Weaknesses of the Big Bang Theory
The big bang theory was first suggested by a Belgian priest named Georges Lemaitre in the 1920s, when he suggested that the universe began from a single primordial atom. However the big bang theory was born from the observations which were made by Edwin Hubble that other galaxies were moving from earth at a high speed in different directions. This theory was further boosted by the Arno and Penzias Wilson’s discovery of cosmic microwave radiation, which is believed to be the tangible remnant leftover light from the big bang. According to this theory the universe, all of its matter and radiation was compressed into a hot, dense mass, which was very small. However, the theory states that there was a blast which enabled all of universe’s matter and energy to spring from this small dense hot mass. After the matter had cooled down new atoms were formed. The big bang theory has three main types of evidence as its foundation and these are: the big bang theory assumes that the universe is expanding and this is supported by the interpretation of the red-shifts of remote galaxies and other systems as the Doppler shifts. The big bang theory predicts the cosmic abundance of some light elements helium-4, deuterium, lithium-7, whereby the predictions are confirmed by the abundances of cosmic light. In 1948 Alpher, Bethe and Gamow used the big bang to predict the existence of a low temperature background radiation throughout the universe at a relic of about 25K.
The hugest weakness of the big bang theory is the fact that it is a product of a person’s imagination, that is to say that the big bang theory has no substantial evidence that actually proves that such an event happened. In most logical cases, explosions only result in entropy not order, for example if a dynamite was to explode in a building, the building would be destroyed and only rubbles would be left standing, however the big bang states the occurrence of a blast created order as the world to some extent is an orderly place, this is also one of the weaknesses upon which the big bang theory can be attacked. Although there is supporting evidence such as the moving of the galaxies at high speed in all directions but that alone cannot stand as a fact which can be used to justify or authenticate the theory of the big bang theory.
In as much as this theory might have its scientific support from scientists who believe in it and have put different hypotheses forward to validate its claims, it has flaws which even its supporters have not been able to explain. The Holy Bible has over the years, proven to be a reliable source as it has stood the test of time and some events which are written in it have come to pass, so on this note this Holy book can be relied on to give accurate facts about the origins of earth. However the big bang theory has certain areas in which it contradicts with the bible’s account on the origins of the earth and considering the credibility of...
