Origin Of Universe
Origin of the
Universe - What's the Latest Theory?
When it comes to the origin of the universe, the "Big
Bang Theory" and its related Inflation Universe Theories (IUTs) are
today's dominant scientific conjectures. According to these interrelated
notions, the universe was created between 13 and 20 billion years ago from
the random, cosmic explosion (or expansion) of a subatomic ball that hurled
space, time, matter and energy in all directions. Everything - the whole
universe -- came from an initial speck of infinite density (also known as a
"singularity"). This speck (existing outside of space and time) appeared
from no where, for no reason, only to explode (start expanding) all of a
sudden. Over a period of approximately 10 billion years, this newly created
space, time, matter and energy evolved into remarkably-designed and
fully-functional stars, galaxies and planets, including our earth.
