Main Question or Discussion Point
It would be most helpful and beneficial to the world of Physics if everybody would stop calling the Big Bang, the big bang. It is very misleading to the lay man (myself) and it does not do anything to promote the understanding of the universe. The very word suggests that something went "Bang" when if fact that is not even close to what really happened. The word also suggests that something happened at a certain place, when in fact it didn't. Why does the Physics community continue to promote such a word? I can understand a word like "expansion" where that makes much more sense. There just has to be a better word. I'm calling Neil deGrasse Tyson.....he stole Pluto, so maybe he can get everyone on board to stop using such a misleading word!!!!
