I am not mathmatician and know little of string theory. But I am looking for God and I hear those of you who do know string theory may be hot on his trail. Years ago, when Hubble was still only a promise we were told it would allow us to see back in time nearly to the big bang. My concern was that unless earth was moving at near the speed of light, all the light from any where near the big bang should have passed us by long ago, never to return. I was informed that the answer to this concern was "space inflation" which moved things apart faster than the speed of light. In questioning this explanation, I was told that "space" is "not the nothing between two somethings" (as I posed, because 100 times zero or nothing is still zero or nothing and it cannot be expanded without moving the somethings), because space is not nothing, I was informed. Now I believe I have been told that space is made up of strings. Recently, sci.channel said the big bang was caused by a collision between parallel universes, according to string theorists. My question is: What was between the two universes before they collided? Also, even the most tightly woven fabric of "strings" has "space"s between the strings. In string theory, what is between the strings, if not space? Finally, is "space inflation" still an accepted theory?
