Is this a true statement regarding the Big Bang? "The BB is not that matter and energy ’exploded’ It is that matter and energy came into existence, along with time and space." I'm in the middle of a discussion, and someone said that, and it struck me as wrong, but I thought "what the **** do I know?" so I came here. BTW, i'm not really knowledgeable about physics, but I love you guys and what you do. I'm so sorry the physicist always dies in the science fiction films!
