The big bang theory

A particle (I think) crashed into another, and they kept crashing into each other until they crashed into a huge comet. That then had a huge explosion and made the world.

Some how, god could have got a magic pot and cast a spell to make the Earth happen. He was in mid-air and cast a spell on a comet, then it turned into Earth as we know it.

God created earth and the universe within 7 days. Before this there was nothing.

A unicorn vomited up the world. Then end.

There is an infinite number of universes, and the one we are in had a planet form from gravity pulling rocks together into what is currently known as earth.

A widely accepted theory that works with string theory. It is widely accepted by atheist and a few theist.

This is definitely a weird poll.

I felt like the answers were lacking. So I added a few.

The Big Bang theory is a bit too broad. The question is asking for people's opinions as to how the Earth formed, in particular.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-29T10:16:31.7927132-05:00
A bunch of rocks that were pulled together by gravity. If I remember correctly that is the scientifically accepted theory.

Whoever put the infinite number of universe one should be more accurate as the multiverse theory is not "widely accepted".

The big bang theory never directly created the Earth. Why are there so many voted for that?

"Whoever put the infinite number of universe one should be more accurate as the multiverse theory is not "widely accepted"." String theory is commonly accepted, string theory says there is multiple universes.

Can you give me the overview on string theory? I must confess that I don't know much of it. I was set back on my scientific knowledge somewhat thanks to my short-lived obsession with politics.

@debate_power - Well that's not hard. No, seriously. Go searching. There is nothing to put in a couple poorly formatted paragraphs that will get you anywhere on what string theory is. I will say, however, aptly named, it has to do with actual strings. VERY VERY SMALL strings. For just about any of it to work, it needs extra spatial dimensions.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-29T20:41:07.2076068-05:00
TBR, I am slightly upset you didn't vote for "There is an infinite number of universes, and the one we are in had a planet form from gravity pulling rocks together into what is currently known as earth." I am guessing I wrote it wrong?
TBR says2015-04-29T20:45:52.1550068-05:00
Well, the question was "how was the earth made". 1) That has nothing to do with multiverse theory. 2) How the earth was made is sold science. Multiverse is not solid science. Very interesting.

"and the one we are in had a planet form from gravity pulling rocks together into what is currently known as earth."

The String Theory is roughly the theory that all matter is made of incredibly small(you'd need a microscope pointed at a microscope pointed at a microscope pointed at a microscope to see them) vibrating 1 dimensional strings. Although this is a really simplified version.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-04-29T23:27:49.5425179-05:00
"microscope pointed at a microscope pointed at a microscope pointed at a microscope" Uhhh... No. Any theoretical microscope would fail to work at that size. I would say a better explanation of the size of those strings is that if you were to scale up an atom to the size of the solar system, a string would be the size of a tree.
debate_power says2015-04-30T09:58:01.9848320-05:00
@TBR Well, if it's as simple as you say, I will do just that. I have a feeling that it has to do with very small strings of energy whose oscillations form different particles- "very, very small strings" tipped me off. Superstrings, right?
