so today i was sitting in my philosophy class(dont worry this isnt really to do with philosophy) and we started talking about the universe and the "first creator." my teacher honestly believes that god is what made the universe move around and form into what it is now. but i want to proove her wrong. she understand that after the big bang theory everything was spread out because of the enormous amounts of force that followed the big bang but why was everything supposedly compacted together. like what pulled everything together in order for it to all be compacted into a gigantic ball of masses that one day exploded? how was everything pulled in together before the big bang? i read this article ( http://ssscott.tripod.com/BigBang.html ) but i cant really seem to find anything on the pre-big bang times. if there are any suggestions you can offer or any sites or sources that i can try tolook up and find please tell me. either post it here or msg it to me. i appreciate it. thanks guys and dolls!
