Edwin Hubble usually gets top billing for the Big Bang Theory, which suggests that the universe was born in a massive explosion, roughly 13.8 billion years ago. According to the Big Bang Theory, all of the matter that exists now came from this cataclysmic expansion, and most scientists believe that the expansion of the universe continues today. The first scientist with this intergalactic view was actually Georges Lemaître, a Belgian mathematician and Catholic priest who called his hypothesis the Cosmic Egg in 1927.
In 1929 at the Mt. Wilson Observatory in California, Hubble -- unaware of Lemaître’s writings -- discovered that galaxies were moving away at high speeds, in essence confirming Lemaître’s theory with some degree of observational certainty.
The day that started with a bang:
Hello 'universal' readers,
Personally I think that there are countless universes so that means that a so-called big bang is just one of the countless events without a beginning and without an end.
Religious persons always create misleading interpretations to 'prove' that there is a so-called creator!
