    Why dig up this "antique" old subject. Sorry people all of this nonsense "PEOPLE" on this tiny rock cooked up. Just go on with your life and enjoy; that is all you are "allowed" to do by all the "ghosts" people invented. Once you die nothing in the universe cares about your "dust" Amen

    bluedog -- You mentioned Stephen Hawking and colleagues. The concept of an infinite number of universes is hard to imagine unless you can conceptualize the implications of infinity in space and time. This is probably not the website to discuss the science behind multiple universes, quantum mechanics, black holes or string theory. However, it is a fascinating subject for those who have the time to think deeply about the universe and the insignificance of our individual lives. People would rather argue faith...each of us has a "purpose".

    Anyway, since the title of this thread is the Big Bang, consider this when you wake up at 4:00 am and ponder life. The Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago...the age of the universe. The earth is only 4.5 billion years and lies within the Milky Way Galaxy. There are some 100 billion stars in our galaxy, but in the bigger picture there are at least 10 trillion galaxies in the universe. That translates into something like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the universe if you believe the scientists.

    But what was happening before the Big Bang? And what about all those infinite number of universes? Too mind boggling.

    In any case, closer to home and 2020, if we fuck up our planet, the closest planet outside of out solar system capable of life is Ross 128 b, a mere 11 light years away. One light year is about 6 trillion miles. A space ship traveling at 38,600 mph would reach Ross 128 in 191,251 years. That would be some space ship.

    The thought that we have at least one planet to escape to should be comforting. Wink

    Another thought: When exactly did time begin? According to the Bible time begin with the formation of the earth, something like 6,000 years ago; but some theologians put it at maybe 7,000 years old. Now that's a point worth debating.

    Schmidt:--- You are correct in pointing out the difficult-to-imagine vastness of our galaxy alone. Never mind the other 9+ trillion other galaxies. And all the other gargantuan numbers required to describe the cosmos. So how could anyone imagine infinite numbers of universes? No one can unless using an analogy, like "bubbles in soap suds". That doesn't really give the concept meaning. But it makes it more imaginable ... Temporarily.

    Until there is a stronger theory, or evidence to the contrary, I personally, tend to support the theory of infinite universes. And therefore, the an equal number of big bangs.

    One thing for sure, if there is any truth to it, we got damn unlikely to be caught in the universe where Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

    Anyways, loved watching Brian Greene on PBS a few years ago, and its serves as reminder there is a couple of his books I have not yet read.

    I'll believe just about any theory over the idea that a authoritarian white guy that rules with an iron hand and banishes a majority of people to eternal suffering for trivial reasons, and accepts an elite few because they follow him without question...IMO, on a maturity level, its on par with believing that Santa is real. I do believe there is a greater reality beyond what we experience during our life time, I just don't know what it is, but I highly confident that it a reality that is not based on fear and unquestioning obedience.

    The only "big bang" will come in November; either Trump gets re-elected and this country gets the "big bang" in the coming years. Or Biden gets elected and gets "torpedoed" by the GOP all the way and gets also an "big bang" in the coming years.

    Yes people; you are the one's who create "big bangs" due to corrupted elections and "games" being played over our backs by a certain part of the country who go bravely to church.
