Other Theorys for the beginning of the Universe?

  1. Mar 10, 2015 #1
    Granted, the Big Bang Theory is brilliant, and viable...but what other plausible theory's are there? Or more interestingly do any of you have any out of the box thoughts? This is more a topic for discussion than answers as such. Thanks for contributing!

    There are no other plausible theories. The big bang theory does for astronomy what the theory of evolution does to biology. It ties all of our observations together into a single explanation for the history of our universe, and it does so with spectacular accuracy. Very little in astronomy or cosmology would fit together and make sense without the big bang theory.

    PF exists to teach people about mainstream science, not out of the box ideas or other alternative theories. There are other forums and websites on the internet if you wish to discuss those things. Thread locked.
