I confess I'm not a fan of the Big Bang theory... the rapid expansion bit has always struck me as special pleading.
I like the Big Ripple Theory.
I want to hear why you think the theory of rapid expansion preceding the big bang is special pleading. That isn't a sarcastic or dismissive request, I genuinely would like to hear your opinion.
There are things we don't know, and there are things which I believe we can't know due to the limits of our physical universe so at some point the best we can do is look the the results and make an educated guess as to the catalyst. In my opinion it's as good as any other theory, if not better...don't know shit about the 'Big Ripple' theory, I may read up on it some time.
