I’m sure this is not the first time someone has suggested that the “big bang” (the theory, not the TV show) is scientifically ludicrous. Perhaps coming from my subconscious related to something I heard along the way, I had a thought cross my mind the other day. But first, let’s review what the big bang theory is… an idea that claims the world, universe, etc came into existence when a bunch of particles combined together millions of years ago. From it, we get all the planets, stars, earth, sun, and human beings.
Not even getting into the divine beliefs about creation (vs. evolution), here is the thought I had that makes “big bang” bogus in one easy step.
What are the chances that a sweet, new Ford Bronco truck could come into being by random particles coming together on their own, randomly, at the same point of time, in the same place?
No one in their right mind believes a car can build itself from nothing. That’s virtually impossible. And yet, folks out there believe something more detailed, more intricate, a million times more diverse, from a shell in the deep ocean to the brittle fingernail of a newborn baby, to the rings around Saturn… just kind of happened? Umm, ok.
That’s all I have to say. But I will reiterate, I’m sure someone has said this or something like this in the past. It’s just been on my mind lately… as has the new Ford Bronco. I thought it would be bigger, but the more I see them around town, the more I like them.
Thanks for stopping by!
