The Universe Has No Beginning? Doubts about the Big Bang Theory
Crosscombe, Towns Lane, Loddiswell, Devon, TQ7 4QY, U.K.
This paper is a direct implication of general relativity. This implication offers a possible new insight into cosmology that is different from the current view. For example, two thought experiments are used to show that there may not have been a big bang. They also show the possibility of time reversal. If this is so, one consequence is that the universe would be “timeless” and ongoing and have no beginning. It argues against the “redshift” theory as a measurement and propose a solution to the riddle of why some stars appear to be older than the universe itself. This “fact,” not to mention other anomalies, should be enough to alert us that the present view of cosmology may be confused. All this, so it is claimed, is a direct implication of general relativity and so should be acceptable as a scientific possibility.
