The Big Bang Paradox

Hi again everyone!

Well, after a few days of feeling down, I’m back with another science Q for ya!.  It’s the big bang paradox.  Here I go.

According to “science”, they like to say that the universe started from a single pinpoint of energy.  A pinpoint that expanded at an incredible rate.  Remember this part.. a single point… a point from which the universe has continued to expand.  From what I can tell, that sound an awful lot like a center of the universe doesn’t it?  Yet, they also say that there is no center of the universe, nor an outside edge.  Which are we to believe?  That’s the paradox.

But, the paradox continues kids.  Here’s another part that strums my thinker big time.  If in fact, there is no center, and no edge, then how can there be a direction outward?  Outward from where?  You mean away from something?  Like um… the center? 

From here I leave the pondering to you.  I don’t pretend to know the answer to these questions.  I just continue to maintain that it’s possible “they” don’t know it either.

So, have a good day, and a happy new year all.

  1. I’m not aware of any scientists saying that there was no center to the universe.
    It would depend on the shape of the universe,if the universe is closed (a sort of hyper sphere (if you go far enough in a direction than you would end up back where you started)) than there is no center and no edge.
    If the universe is closed than the center is a matter of persecutive, where ever you are is the center to you.

  2. A friend sent me this quote yesterday:

    “The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination. But the combination is locked up in the safe.”

    Peter De Vries

    It seems pretty appropriate in light of this question. Hope you’re on an upswing, Stew!

  3. If space is infinite then there is no outside or inside. There can’t be a center to infinity. Ow my head….
