Big Bang ‘Smoking Gun’ Evidence Found, But What Does It Really Prove?

On St. Patrick’s Day while we were out celebrating a holiday that actually looks nothing like it did when it was born, scientists were soberly sifting through our Universe that also looks nothing like it did when it was born. Although this time, they stumbled on some pretty big ‘bangin’ news announcing that they finally found the proof they’d been looking for to validate the Big Bang Theory. Well, they found something astounding alright, but what does it all really mean? First watch this short video that takes the confusing scientific jargon and boils it down to terms that we comparative average Joe’s can understand…

So, scientists are calling these space-time gravitational ripples the ‘smoking gun’ evidence that corroborates the Big Bang and while it does corroborate something, I’m not convinced that it’s conclusive for upholding the Big Bang theory or Creationism for that matter, put another way this new evidence really proves BOTH theories to the degree that we all agree that first there was nothing and then there was suddenly something. All this new discovery (which to some isn’t all that much a discovery at all) proves is that the Universe was indeed born in a single blinding instant and whether it was from an accidental cosmic explosion or an intelligent creator snapping his fingers (or a cosmic explosion CAUSED by a God-snap) remains to be seen. Both sides can infer this as ‘proof’ for their theory which to me is still problematic.

While science itself is based on cold hard facts, scientists are still human too and in this case are still combining their new discovery with their own personal bias (as am I incidentally). Like I said in my last similar post on this topic, none of us were there and can only guess as to what happened before we were alive really. While it’s fun to speculate on our origins, let’s just unite on the common ground that we’re all here and in the grand scheme of things, just a flash in the pan compared to the complexities of the universe. We will come and go and so eventually will the universe itself. I mean, that’s what it means to be human right? To ask. To seek. Finding answers has never really been the point. Once we find our answers then what? almost always we don’t sit still on our victory too long before we’re on to the next burning question…
