Scientists at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have discovered echoes of gravity produced by the big bang, giving more credibility to some predictions made by Albert Einstein. If confirmed, these findings will provide direct evidence that the universe expanded 100 trillion trillion times in the blink of an eye.
Following the big bang, waves of gravity emanated throughout the universe — waves which scientists are just finding by detecting cosmic microwave background. These findings “not only help confirm that the universe inflated dramatically, but are providing theorists with the first clues about the exotic forces that drove space and time apart,” according to NASA.
- Since modern science is evincing a universe that began at some point in the past, what would cause or start such a dramatic cosmic event?
- If gravity and the rest of the known universe were produced by the big bang, is it even possible to understand what was before it began?
- Since science and natural law stop at the beginning of the universe, didn’t science just prove that we have a supernatural beginning?
