You can't possibly be serious.

They all accept the theory as being plausible. They were not there to witness it, and have no direct evidence that it actually happened.

Hell, even I accept it.

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

They aren't assuming anything, they are hypothesizing. I'm sorry that you can't understand the difference.

By the way, "assuming for the sake of argument" is not the same as assuming.

Hypothesize and Assume are synonyms.

Quote:Hypothesize

verb
1. to form or assume as a hypothesis

Now please go kick your own ass as I am tired of kicking it for you.

I don't know what you are trying to state... but observation of the related effects and mathematical calculations of it's effects counts as evidence. If you want to move goal posts to Direct evidence, which you did here.. that's fine and astrophysicists consider gravitional waves they've discovered to be direct evidence... http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/news/2014-05

Just because it may make no sense to you, or make no sense to me, doesn't mean it's valid based on not making sense. I don't know why anyone would want to think or accept something must be valid because the alternative doesn't make much sense to me.

Perhaps you missed this:
By the way, "assuming for the sake of argument" is not the same as assuming.

Your own defintion of assume was
Quote:It simply means "to take for granted without proof."

When you hypothesize you do not "take for granted". Well, maybe you do, you don't seem to be able to tell fact from fantasy. For others, "assume as a hypothesis" is not the same as "take for granted".

Quote:It makes absolutely no sense to me at all ... It makes perfect sense to me that....

So? You aren't educated in the areas that you are talking about and what does or does not make sense to you is irrelevant.

Wrong at any scale? Laughat

Yeah, Free dude, there's evidence for big bang - why do you think it's the accepted theory? 'Cos physicists like to wank? 'Cos it looks pretty? You can even read the wikipedia page and see a summary of the evidence there.
