    Why not discuss in a practical way for some members about
    tracing the elements and atoms to the big bang. According to
    the b.b.c. they have trace the elements back to the black
    holes.There were many steps to prove such as super novas.
    It was combination of steps to prove the big bang theory.
    The atomic theroy was also explained,the University of
    Manchester U.K. was a starting source.. Why not look at it,
    If you need more of a information source.

    Despite the length of some of our beards, very few of us were around when the big bang happened....or, as things seem to be suggesting of late....multiple big bangs.

    We have to make some big assumptions whenever we try to figure things out from non-current observations. We assume that laws that were in place during the creation of everything still apply now. It SEEMS reasonable that they are/were...but there is no way to prove it. And if the RULES themselves have changed, there is really no way we could prove anything else that we can't directly observe.

    So, unless you're really really really really really old, it's all second-hand information. :)

    It's very inferential - something like determining how a campfire was lit several thousand years ago by looking at the ash. And the fire site has been subject to weather and geologic forces since it last burned.

    To seek a better understanding of the big bang,which has
    been proved by intelligent men.Explained step by step
    opinion Vs opinion.We are living in an exspaning world,
    atoms involved make it electronic for new guys.I had hoped
    that others had seen this excellent information,I am sure that
    even the best of minds would have been refreshed or learned
    something. I was impressed with the B.B.C. information,If not
    I would not try to get more Information on this forum.
    Like others I am not good at higher mathematics,but you
    understand how things happen with a good explaination.
    There a lot of information on the way to the big bang,
    sub atomic particals will be next with the collider. I learned
    that there is building on top of the collider,that maked It the longest
    building in the world. That not electronic,just F.Y.I.--According to
    the best minds,that I am trying to tell you about It has been
    proven step by step If you seek out the Information.

    For something closer, use Google Earth to look at the David Taylor Model Basin off MacArthur Blvd. just outside Washington D.C. It's just over 1 mile long. It has been renamed, so look north along the Potomac River.

    Speaking of google earth,I was able to see my house from ground
    level, pan 180 degrees and see the house across street.You can tell
    by info you know that the video was not current. Just think If someone
    had an account with google.

    "Proved" is a bit strong for any event that goes back, what 15 billion years? All of the cosmological theories are, well, theories. The theories are backed by evidence, such as the background microwave radiation that seems to be present throughout the observable universe.

    I'm not disputing this theory, as it fits pretty well with other things we can measure, but I doubt that any astronomer or cosmologist would go so far as to say this theory has been proved.
