Appearring in Forbes magazine on Jan 17, 2016, a rundown of the current understanding of the Big Bang was written by blogger Professor Ethan Seigel of “Starts With A Bang”. Apparently from this current understanding, Seigel felt compelled to write this article expressing that there are some things that we are just not going to know.
How sad it is to see that there are those who are willing to capitulate to such a dismal end in our quest for knowledge of how we came to be. The only thing that is unknowable is why the energy of the universe, “Always was, always is, and always will be.” Many errors have been introduced into the picture of the Big Bang, where the process of inflation and expansion still need adjustments. However the corrections will not be forthcoming because physicists refuse to humble themselves and admit that their basic fundamental model of the universe is incorrect. Theoretical physics took a wrong turn over 100 years ago when they went against Einstein and abandoned the correct notion that spacetime is an energy medium.
That is not the only reason… many other reasons have been posted here under the heading: Why the theory of everything took so long?
Only when you know the TOE can you figure out what happened at the Big Bang.
This scenario predicted by the TOE seems much more logical and is mathematically sound. It will take a very long time for the theoretical physicists to admit they have been outsmarted by an engineer. Currently the delay in acknowledging (or even reading about this new theory) is because physicists reject the premise that spacetime is made of “something” as they steadfastly “know” that spacetime is made of nothing.
Of course this new model doesn’t fit into what they currently “know”. As Mark Twain once said, “ It’s not what you don’t know that kills you, it’s what you know for sure that ain’t true.” How ironic is it that Professor Seigel named his blog, “Starts With A Bang”, since even this notion that has been ingrained into the minds of nearly all theoretical physicists as an absolute doctrine is incorrect. The universe did not “start” with what physicists call the Big Bang!
