Top Ten Scientific Flaws In The Big Bang Theory

Written by John Watson

You might not be aware, but there are many things that proponents of the Big Bang theory, including many scientists and 99% of college science professors, do not want you to know about the Big Bang theory.

The first is that there is a good reason it is only called a “theory”. The proponents of this theory would have you believe that it is set in stone and factual; but this is far from the truth. In fact, the Big Bang theory has so many holes that there is not enough evidence to even confidently say that it could even possibly be valid.

So let’s see the top ten scientific flaws in the Big Bang theory and show you why it is just a theory. Some of these theories are extremely complex, so I will try to put it in layman terms as much as possible so almost anyone could understand.

10. The Magnetic Monopole Problem

Why it’s a problem. A magnetic monopole is, in short, a particle which contains an electrical charge, creating a net “magnetic charge” within the individual particle. If the Big Bang theory were true, it should be one of the most prevalent (common) particles in the universe. However, instead it is the complete opposite – a magnetic monopole has never even been observed, not even once.

This is a serious problem because it means there is something entirely wrong with the Big Bang Theory, because the total and absolute lack of even a single observed magnetic monopole particle is a direct contradiction to the fundamental principles of the Big Bang theory.

9. The Flatness Problem, Also Known As The Oldness Problem

Why it’s a problem. Initial density of matter and energy in the universe is a very specific critical value. Small deviations from these values would have had massive effects on the nature of the universe at the current time.

If the universe started off slightly positively curved, it would be enormously positively curved today, and the same holds for negative curvature. However, the curvature of matter and energy in regards to density remains very small so the probability that a Big Bang could have occurred to create the current universe is so astronomically slim that it is entirely improbable.

8. We Should Be Able To See The Big Bang Or Shortly After, Since The Farther You Look The Farther Back In Time You See; But We Don’t

Why it’s a problem. This is my own idea that I just came up with (all the other ideas listed are well known and documented). As a result, this is the first time this problem will ever be posed (although I recognize the possibility that someone at some point may have posed the same or similar problem).

Essentially, the problem is that if the Big Bang occurred 13.7 billion years ago, then the deeper we peer into the universe, the closer to the Big Bang that we should see. However, no matter how deep we peer into space, still we see no evidence of a Big Bang.

A quick google search showed me that even in 2012 we have been able to see 13.2 billion light years, which is see the equivalent of 13.2 billion years into the past. (We can probably see even farther now.)

However, since the Big Bang was supposed to occur only 13.7 billion years ago, then we should be looking at the early pre-formed universe. We shouldn’t see fully formed stars and planets. However, instead we see stars and planets just like in our own galaxy. This is a serious problem for the Big Bang theory because we’re looking at the “early universe” yet it doesn’t appear very early at all. Thus, the Big Bang could not have happened.

Additionally, although this is in fact yet another issue (one that has been addressed before), if the universe happened totally randomly then there should be all kinds of different forms that we should see as we look out into space. It wouldn’t be the same planets, stars, and galaxies in every direction. Instead it would be a vast array of different types of things. For example, in one direction we might see stars and galaxies but in another direction we might see exotic forms. However this is not the case, further disproving any Big Bang from ever happening.

7. Lack Of Universal Galactic Uniformity Contradicts The Fundamental Aspects Of The Big Bang Theory

Why it’s a problem. This is because how the universe presently exists, galaxies are spread out in an uneven fashion, clumped together at certain points with big gaps and walls. However, due to the supposed age of 13.7 billion years, the universe has not yet had time for such walls and voids to form.

For a Big Bang to have occurred, galaxies would be perfectly evenly spread out. Thus, the lack of universal galactic uniformity contradicts the fundamental aspects of the Big Bang theory.

6. Dark Matter And Dark Energy

Why it’s a problem. Dark Matter and Dark Energy have never been proven, or observed in any way whatsoever, yet the Big Bang theory depends on the existence of such potentially mythological substances. Not only that, but in order for the Big Bang theory to even be valid, dark matter and dark energy would have to be the most abundant things in the universe.

The “dark” in “dark matter” and “dark energy” doesn’t mean color. It means, “unknown”. In other words, the proponents of the Big Bang theory couldn’t figure out how it could possibly happen so they said, let’s make up some fictional matter and energy that “made it happen”. It’s kind of like me saying I am the most powerful person in the universe. My power is everywhere and can do everything! You just can’t see my power but it’s there! And then someone with common sense saying, pfft whatever man, yeah right.

5. The Theory Of Inflation Violates Einstein’s General Law Of Relativity

Why it’s a problem. Big Bang theorists have tried to use a magical effect called “inflation” to solve several of the obvious problems, including the Horizon Problem and the Flatness Problem. The problem is, Inflation states that after the Big Bang, all the particles in the universe traveled faster than the speed of light. But Einstein’s General Law of Relativity proves that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

Inflation can effectively be called a “magical” effect because it does not hold any basis in science. Theorists made up this magical effect which says, essentially, that in some magical way everything travelled exponentially faster than the speed of light to get where it is after the supposed “Big Bang” .

In order for inflation to even begin to be a solution, all matter after the big bang would have to travel 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times faster than the speed of light. That is 1,650 zeros, or 101,649. There isn’t a name for this number, but for some perspective, there are only 1089 total particles in the entire observable universe.

Obviously, Inflation is impossible, because it violates Einstein’s General Law of Relativity, that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. You can’t use a false solution to answer problems.

It would be like you asking me, “I have three oranges and I add another orange. How many oranges do I have?”

And then me saying in response: “you now have 100 oranges”.

Then you ask, “how did you get 100 from 3 plus 1?”

And then I say, “well I wanted it to equal 100 oranges, so I made up this theory called Inflexion which means that due to a magical force that turns your fourth orange into 97 oranges, now you have 100 total oranges even though you only added one more.”

Well, you can’t argue that if I make up a magical term that turns one orange into 97 oranges then it doesn’t equal 100 oranges, because yes, 3 plus 97 equals 100. But Inflexion doesn’t exist, because I just made it up to get the result I wanted; so 3 oranges plus 1 orange always equals 4 oranges!

So then you tell me, “Ok ok smart guy, well now I have 5 oranges and I add 1 apple. How many oranges do I have?”

And then I reply: “100 oranges”.

And you say, “WTF?! How did you get 100 again?!”

So I say, “Well I still wanted 100 oranges so I made up another magical force called Inflapplexon that that turns 1 apple into 95 oranges when you add it to 5 existing oranges.”

Now you’re getting mad because I keep making up terms. But this is the same way that “Inflation” was created to solve the impossible problems.

The theorists wanted the end result to be the Big Bang, so they made up this magical term called “Inflation” and said, “ok this magical force caused the laws of physics to be broken so now the Big Bang works”.

Just like 5 oranges and 1 apple do not equal 100 oranges, General Relativity plus Inflation does not equal the Big Bang!

In summary, just like my magical forces “Inflexion” and “Inflapplexon”, Inflation also does not exist, because it defies the fundamental laws of physics.

4. The Big Bang Theory Violates The Second Law Of Thermodynamics

Why it’s a problem. The Second Law of Thermodynamics, also known as Entropy, states generally that all matter has a natural tendency to move to disorder.

However, for the Big Bang to have happened and created the whole universe as we know it, the opposite thing would have happened: all matter would have moved toward order. This is impossible.

According to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, if a Big Bang did happen, then even today all that would exist would be particles of all matter strewn evenly throughout the universe. It couldn’t have formed planets and complex laws of physics all out of nothing. To say it did you would have to say that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is false (which it isn’t so you can’t).

3. The Big Bang Theory Violates The First Law Of Thermodynamics

Why it’s a problem. The First Law of Thermodynamics states generally that matter cannot be created nor destroyed. This is a fundamental law of science which says that matter can only be converted into other matter or energy, but it cannot be created from nothing.

However, proponents of the Big Bang theory try to say that the universe was created out of nothing. Obviously this is scientifically impossible.

2. Static Universe Models Fit Observational Data Better Than Expanding Universe Models

Why it’s a problem. Occam’s Razor states that that which has the fewest adjustable parameters should be chosen. However, the Big Bang theory opposes Occam’s Razor, because it can only exist with innumerable adjustable parameters.

Models of a Static Universe have far fewer adjustable parameters than expanding universe models. The Big Bang theory is an expanding universe model. Hence, according to Occam’s Razor you must choose a Static Universe model over the Big Bang’s Expanding Universe model.

1. The Horizon Problem

Why it’s a problem. The universe is too big to have formed in only 10-20 billion years as the Big Bang theory suggests, since the Big Bang is theorized to have happened only about 13.7 billion years ago. This is because the speed of matter is limited by the speed of light.

The problem here is that if the Big Bang had occurred, firstly the universe is too large to have only happened 13.7 billion years ago, and secondly there is temperature uniformity which requires matter to have moved beyond the speed of light to become universally uniform. This of course, is impossible according to Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, because nothing can move faster than the speed of light.

You might be asking yourself, “well, is everybody wrong then?” Well yes, it’s entirely plausible that everyone can be wrong – at least, the few people in the educational establishment behind pushing these false and unfounded theories.

Today, ideas like The Big Bang are pushed so vehemently, especially among higher education, that anyone who questions its validity, even in light of the countless flaws of the Big Bang Theory, can be subject to intense criticism, be ostracized and face social rejection, be given failing grades, and even face expulsion from universities. Professional licenses can be revoked, you can be rejected from associations, lose your job, and worse. All because you went against the prevailing notions.

It’s not about what is true. It’s about what the educational and governing authorities say they want you to believe and say is true. As a result almost all professors and scientists are too afraid of being ostracized from their communities and face losing their jobs to speak out against the prevailing notions.

This is why false ideas unsupported by science like the Big Bang theory and evolution are so pervasive. Most people believe what they are told without even bothering to research it for themselves; and the ones who are informed enough and think for themselves enough to question it are too afraid to say anything.

If you want to believe in the Big Bang theory, you must believe it one of three ways: by faith, by ignorance, or by indoctrination. By faith, because you can’t believe something which does not have adequate scientific evidence except as a philosophical viewpoint.

By ignorance because the only way to be certain in your mind that the Big Bang theory could work is because you don’t have all the facts. Or if you have been so far indoctrinated you haven’t made a logical conclusion with your own rational mind, you may have never even tried to question what you have been told.

However you must decide for yourself what you will believe. If you decide to believe in the Big Bang theory, that’s fine, just realize that since it is not supported by science, you have to believe it as a philosophical viewpoint, not as a scientific fact.
