The Big Bang created the Universe
Debate Rounds (3)
http://www.bbc.co.uk...). The Big Bang is a theory as you stated. There is evidence to this theory but it has not been proven in full to be completely accurate. The same thing goes with God. Although there's more evidence proving the Big Bang than God.
It is being studied that for a short period after the Big Bang, the universe underwent an incredible burst of expansion called "inflation". At the time, the universe must have been filled with a form of energy of an unknown nature for this inflation to have occurred. 50 years ago, Robert W. Wilson and Arno A. Penzias heard the hiss of radio signals coming from all directions beyond the Milky Way. After researching this, they found that the hissing is cosmic microwave background radiation which is the residue of the energy and matter that created the universe billions of years ago. They found proof to confirm the Big Bang theory.
Avi Loeb is a professor of science at Harvard university as well as the Chair of the Department of Astronomy. He stated "I"ve been trying to understand the beginning of the process before the Milky Way and its stars were formed. It turns out that the first stars were more massive than the Sun and the first galaxies were smaller than the Milky Way." He says this is a compelling period because "it is the scientific version of the story of Genesis. I don"t want to offend religious people, but the first chapter of the Bible needs revising"the sequence of events needs to be modified. It is true that there was a beginning in time. As in the biblical story, "Let there be light." This light can be thought of as the cosmic microwave background." (http://www.smithsonianmag.com...)
Furthermore, "In order to contemplate the universe creating itself from nothing, you must first accept the proposition that something can be created from nothing . That is tenable only in the quantum realm, so applying it to the universe presumes a quantum scale for the universe." (http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...)

With that said, I come to my conclusion. I believe that the Big Bang created the universe. There is evidence to that belief, although lacking some rather vital information. Thank you for educating me further. That is what debates are all about.
