my LR 10 final project. I mainly looked at the two prevailing theories on the origins of the universe: intelligent design and the big bang theory. Proponents of intelligent design basically argue that the universe is so complex that there must have been some intelligence that helped form it. Those who support the big bang theory, however, say that the universe originated from an infinitesimally small, dense singularity. Although the debate between the two can be confusing for someone who does not have a very scientific background, I was able to look at my topic in depth.
