The Big Bang
Question from Charles on 10/14/2012:

The framework for the Big Bang Theory relies on Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. The Big Bang Theory was developed from observing the structure of the Universe and from theoretical considerations. There are generally considered to be three outstanding problems with the Big Bang Theory which required science to develope additional theories in an attempt to answer these problems. While the Big Bang Theory is well established in cosmology, it is likely to be refined in the future because little is known about the earliest moments of the Universe's history. There is little evidence regarding the absolute earliest instant of the expansion. Thus, the Big Bang Theory cannot and does not provide any explanation for such an initial condition; rather, it describes and explains the general evolution of the universe going forward from that point on. Science since has proposed different theories looking to develope a theory that would best be suited to find a single theory explaining the earliest moment of the big bang and everything in the universe. All of this has lead science to theorize on the possibility of multiple universe's or a multiverse.These latest theories of a possible multiverse has got scientist searching for theories that could show that the multiverse (including our own universe could together comprise everything that exists and can exist: the entirety of space, time, matter, and energy, as well as the physical laws, and constants that describe them. Finally with all these theories in place: science has theorized about the ultimate fate of the universe. Many possible fates are predicted by rival scientific therories, including futures of both finite and infinite duration. Here are the leading scientific theories about the end of the universe. The Big Freeze Theory, The Heat Death Theory, The Big Rip Theory, The Big Cruch Theory, The Big Bounce Theory, or the Multiverse Theory with no complete end. When we hear, that if you want to deny the Theory of Evolution and the Big Bang Theory and live in your world that is competely inconsistent with everything that science has proposed, and the only way to to make sense of our world and the universe is to place our belief in the general understanding of the modern science's, and if you don't beleive this you are holding everyone back. I thank God for TRUTH... God Bless Mother Angelica, EWTN, and our country... I also would like to say that I do appreciate these Q&A message forms because we have the freedom to express our beliefs...
