Before Big Bang

Start to challenge Big Bang Theory that proposes the universe origniated with an explosion and has been expanding at the speed of light ever since and science fans tend to get very tetchy.
It's no wonder they are so defensive really, the reasoning behind Big Bang as as full of holes as a kitchen sieve and even the name Big Bang was intended as a disparaging description.
There is no more hard evidence for big bang than for the creation myths of ancient religions (I don't believe those either), all that supports Big Bang is mathematical speculation. but critical appraisals of Big Bang are few and far between.
Here is a tongue in cheek look at the idea that nothing existed before Big Bang, not even empty space.

Before Big Bang:
Ian R Thorpe.
Part 1: The Cosmic Mouse Turd.
One of the reasons why supporters of logic and reason have not managed to routcreationists and others who cling to the arguments based on ancient myths andreligious teachings is the theory most often cited to account for the beginnings of theUniverse is full of holes and in many ways so unscientific it is actuallyunsupportable.The point the scientific community are missing is: why does there have to be a beginning. Those of us who have studied how the ancient myths work and the way inwhich they relate historical information will know the creation stories of the Greek,Assyrian, Hindu, Persian and Celtic cultures in referring to "the beginning" areactually talking about the beginning of knowledge.
 
Did anything exist before The Big Bang?
The problem science has with a pre big-bang Universe is that according to theequations of the theorists, a Universe could not have existed before such an event asit is the beginning of all things. Thus we find big-bang science getting close toreligious creationism in that it proposes an absolute starting point.This is where a poet and fiction writer has an advantage over scientists. Our minds can wander into the regions beyond time and space and consider that which is'unscientific' i.e. more or less everything.The most popular of the beginning of time theories proposes that before the big bang, which was actually more of a shwoooom than a BANG!!!, the whole universewas compressed into a pellet of matter the size of a mouse turd. More serious sciencewriters do not use the mouse turd analogy of course, they are more inclined to say a pellet of matter the size of a grain of sand or salt or in some extreme cases intosomething the size of a single atom. Now that is just silly, the entire universe,consisting of an estimated hundred billion galaxies each with up to a hundred billionsolar systems according to Compton's Online Encyclopaedia, could not possibly besqueezed so small an object. A mouse turd is much more realistic, not that reality hasa lot to do with the ravings of theoretical physicists.Sharper minded realists among you will have already asked the question, "butwhat was in all the space outside the mouse turd?"Many scientists try to evade this question. Press them though and they will patiently, as if talking to a dull witted child, try to explain that there was nothingoutside. The mouse turd was everything. Space was compressed into it along withthought, farts, all the solid stuff and gas and dust, water, cheese, potatoes, piss stainedmattresses, cars, Daniel O' Donnell records, scientists and everything. Time was inthere as well, all collapsed and bundled up. There was nothing scientific outside themouse turd. It's easy, your scientist friend will tell you, for those who are notscientists and have not had a scientific education to confuse nothingness with
 
scientific space.The problem here is there are two things the human mind has a lot of difficultyunderstanding but that must be understood if we are to understand the nature of theuniverse. They are infinity which means without end, and nothing which means nada,zilch, not a sausage.Supporters of Big Bang will tell you that there was nothing outside the primordialcosmic mouse turd because (a) science is mostly mathematics based and needssomewhere to start from and (b) while nothing is hard to understand, infinity is anabsolute bugger.Because science needs to draw lines round theings and set boundaries, the outer limits of the universe are said to be as far away from Big Bang as light has travelledin about 13 billion Earth years. To define the universe so is a cop out, a total artifice.What if someone had surfed that shock wave emanating from Big Bang and was nowat the very edge of the (scientific) universe. Would there be a wall with a gate in itand a sign that reads: “WARNING: End of the Universe, beyond likes infinity.Proceed at your own risk.” The universe just carries on and on and on … and on …The surfer would of course be able to surf on for ten times the distance he hadsurfed since Big Bang and then ten times further again that the distance he hadcovered.That's the problem with infinity you see, it has no start and no finish, it is just,you know, infinite.The universe is everything. It goes as far as it goes, we can already measuredistances beyond imagining and as more and more technically advanced radiotelescopes are developed we keep being able to see further and further into deepspace although really we are only seeing light arriving here from deep space. Nothing is equally hard. Oliver Twist might ask can he have more soup and akinder person that the guy in the story might say, “Sorry Oliver lad, there's nothingleft. But there isn't nothing, there's a table with an empty pan, some dirty plates, a fewcrumbs of bread, spoons and things. When we talk about there being 'nothing there',there is usually air which is made out of all sorts of things.
