Welcome to the 47th Issue of the SHAPE Journal, a collection of papers examining some fundamental problems with the Big Bang theory.
Considering that the main evidence for the Big Bang is certainly the varying Red Shifts of light from distant Galaxies, it is remarkable just how far theorists have been able to develop their account of such a totally unobservable and definitely unsubstantiated Event.
Indeed, even the most avid Big Bang advocates are aware of the holes in their efforts, and, without further evidence, are forced to rely solely upon their, seemingly, infinitely- extendable tool - Mathematics, plus a significant helping of pure Speculation, to deliver anything approaching consistency.
There are various alternative ideas for the actual cause of the Big Bang, but, once it had occurred, the general consensus is that all-that-remained, on the completion of that Event’s initial phase, was Pure Energy and absolutely nothing else. Indeed, this assumption has immediately required yet another truly colossal, subsequent Event - the original Creation of all Matter, as, apparently, a product of Pure Energy alone.
