The Big Bang, a BIG Lie

The Big Bang, a BIG Lie


The big bang today relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed -- inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory.

In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, RAISE SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VALIDITY OF THE UNDERLYING THEORY.

But the big bang theory can't survive without these fudge factors. Without the hypothetical inflation field, the big bang does not predict the smooth, isotropic cosmic background radiation that is observed, because there would be no way for parts of the universe that are now more than a few degrees away in the sky to come to the same temperature and thus emit the same amount of microwave radiation.

Without some kind of dark matter, unlike any that we have observed on Earth despite 20 years of experiments, big-bang theory makes contradictory predictions for the density of matter in the universe. Inflation requires a density 20 times larger than that implied by big bang nucleosynthesis, the theory's explanation of the origin of the light elements. And without dark energy, the theory predicts that the universe is only about 8 billion years old, which is billions of years younger than the age of many stars in our galaxy.

What is more, the big bang theory can boast of no quantitative predictions that have subsequently been validated by observation. The successes claimed by the theory's supporters consist of its ability to retrospectively fit observations with a steadily increasing array of adjustable parameters, just as the old Earth-centred cosmology of Ptolemy needed layer upon layer of epicycles.

Yet the big bang is not the only framework available for understanding the history of the universe. Plasma cosmology and the steady-state model both hypothesise an evolving universe without beginning or end. These and other alternative approaches can also explain the basic phenomena of the cosmos, including the abundances of light elements, the generation of large-scale structure, the cosmic background radiation, and how the redshift of far-away galaxies increases with distance. They have even predicted new phenomena that were subsequently observed, something the big bang has failed to do.

Supporters of the big bang theory may retort that these theories do not explain every cosmological observation. But that is scarcely surprising, as their development has been severely hampered by a complete lack of funding. Indeed, such questions and alternatives cannot even now be freely discussed and examined. An open exchange of ideas is lacking in most mainstream conferences.

Whereas Richard Feynman could say that "science is the culture of doubt," in cosmology today doubt and dissent are not tolerated, and young scientists learn to remain silent if they have something negative to say about the standard big bang model. Those who doubt the big bang fear that saying so will cost them their funding.

Even observations are now interpreted through this biased filter, judged right or wrong depending on whether or not they support the big bang. So discordant data on red shifts, lithium and helium abundances, and galaxy distribution, among other topics, are ignored or ridiculed. This reflects a growing dogmatic mindset that is alien to the spirit of free scientific enquiry.

Today, virtually all financial and experimental resources in cosmology are devoted to big bang studies. Funding comes from only a few sources, and all the peer-review committees that control them are dominated by supporters of the big bang. As a result, the dominance of the big bang within the field has become self-sustaining, irrespective of the scientific validity of the theory.

Giving support only to projects within the big bang framework undermines a fundamental element of the scientific method -- the constant testing of theory against observation. Such a restriction makes unbiased discussion and research impossible. To redress this, we urge those agencies that fund work in cosmology to set aside a significant fraction of their funding for investigations into alternative theories and observational contradictions of the big bang. To avoid bias, the peer review committee that allocates such funds could be composed of astronomers and physicists from outside the field of cosmology.

Allocating funding to investigations into the big bang's validity, and its alternatives, would allow the scientific process to determine our most accurate model of the history of the universe.

  1. sir,
    please stop the use of psychotronic device ,remoteneural monitering device or sanction of such type of project to any scientist, and there should be clear list of person on which such type of investigation is going on and the concent of person should be important on which these type of research is going on be they use very local people to read the thought of targeted individual with out scientific ground even they are misuse the device to exploit or to abuse the privacy of human which very dangerous and same ful, torture ful of girl life sir this type of research is a big same on reseach on science or for any scientist. so u should take some step to identify the misuser ,crimnal scientist, because in the name of reserach they are applying their hidden sameful thought on innoscent people, i think govt should ask the list of people on which such type of research is going on so that the mis use of project fund, in the name of reserach can be stop, and also identify the gang of such crimanl scientist either they are scientist or local people becoz any engage in such type of crime directlty or indirectly should be punish equally and they should expose in public so that other can take lession.

  2. sir,
    please stop the mis use of psychotronic device on innocent human, is a crime, psychotronic device user may apply it with the feeling of revenge as rape of girl, harrashment of girl or abusing talk with innocent girl, becoz researcher take the help of local unemploy person to read the thought and talk to targeted individual to collect the information, it may be possible that resesearcher have wrong objective of their reserach with wrong intension, now it is time to stop the misuse of devices, otherwise a big mass of people may unite against crime and other type of terrorist can stand instead of good civilan in globe then you will never fforgive urself.please awake up and do some important thing in real meaning for human and innocent society.

  3. sir,
    stop the psychotronic project on human being, never forget u r also a human, excess of any thing is always harmful, now u have already extremely torture so it time to stop crime against human.

  4. sir,
    please stop the use of invisible weapons on innocents human and stop local device reader on target individual becoz it totaly hurt the human privacy, it is not useful for any research becoz ur local reader are manipulater and they are use ur device for personal revenge which are another type of crime like terrorism becoz target individual may stand against you, abolish you. becoz a target individual can use device on you, so it time to stop crime or ur fake reserach.
