Reality of creation theories -the big bang

Science tells us that all of creation and reality  began with a so called Big Bang. From a point , or singularity, energy is supposed to have exploded outwards into otherwise empty space. This happened 13-14 billion years ago. The energy became matter and is still traveling outwards, expanding away, from this point. All the stars and galaxies are even now rushing away from each other. This is at a uniform speed that can be measured today. Although I certainly always visualized a the bang at a central point in the universe, there is also a theory that it happened everywhere in the universe at the same time.

How did this rushing energy take the form that we see today? Science maintains that the explosively hot matter/energy is supposed to have expanded, and in the process, cooled into the dust and gas ( mostly hydrogen) about 5 billion years ago. Energy becomes fog, then forms into atoms, then becomes gas and dust. Gas and dust become suns, or our stars. Stars form into galaxies. How did gas and dust become stars?

 

Birth of stars

The theory is that stars were formed when the dense parts of these dust clouds collapsed in on each other, due to the force of gravity. Gravity makes all matter attracted to each other and is a vital part of the behavior of all things in the universe. It is the force that holds us on the earth and stops us spinning of into space as the planet rotates. The larger particles of these clouds would have been attracted to each other by this force, and a process of so called gravitational collapse would have begun.

 

Gravitational collapse

This is a tricky concept, but as I understand it, self perpetuating. Seemingly as the particles become bigger they have more pull and attracted others even more strongly. As gravitational collapse advanced it meant that the cloud of dust and gas would have become denser and denser and pulled more of the surrounding matter into it The then emerging heavier clouds would clump together and pull even more surrounding material into it. The heavier particles would have collapsed into the centre and attracted more and more of the outer ones. The heavier the centre, the more of surrounding debris would be pulled in. Compression and gravitational stresses were then generated. The matter would have thickened and gravitational stress would have also caused it to rotate. The rotation would result in a central core of denser material with a flatter dust disk around it. Friction and the gravitational forces would have also caused the emerging central core to heat up and up and a star would begin to form. Our own sun would have followed this process. Further collapse and heating increases at the core would then occur. When the temperature reaches around 27,000,000 F a nuclear reaction begins. A sun/star is born.

 

Nuclear fusion

Stars are natural nuclear reactors which convert the hydrogen atoms, which were there almost from the beginning of time, into helium plus energy. Hydrogen has one proton (positive charge) at the core and one electron (negative and circling) Helium has two of each. As the sun heated still further and became a gigantic nuclear furnace, other elements began to be formed. Three helium atoms fuse to form carbon, two carbon fuse to become magnesium etc. These are the elements which ultimately our physical bodies were formed from. The suns themselves formed into clusters that became galaxies. The universe we see today would have begun to be formed.

 

Conclusion

Science maintains that all of creation emanated from this big bang. The reality is that even if it did happen this way, from where did the initial energy come from?

 

The other  big question

It is perhaps worth noting here that there is no proper understanding of why pure energy ever has mass. Scientists are desperately trying to find what they call the “God particle” or Higgs Boson. This is the theoretical particle that they think gives other particles mass. At the moment, therefore, there is no real understanding of how the burst of big bang energy resulted in solid creations, including us, that have mass.
