Evidence for Cosmic and Stellar Evolution : Evidence for Cosmic and Stellar Evolution The Evidence—The Big Bang : The Evidence—The Big Bang The Red Shift Cosmic Microwave Background Dispersion of light elements The Red Shift : The Red Shift Red shift graphics from Riddle, Astronomy and the Bible Slide 4: The Big Bang Theory predicts a homogenous universe. Galaxies should be apparent with red shifts of every distance along the light spectrum Slide 5: The theory does not describe the data. Slide 6: Perhaps we really are at the center of the universe. Slide 7: Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) (Hartnett, 2001) Image from Big Bang, Wikipedia. Slide 8: The Big Bang assumes ripples of radiation helped matter to form into galaxies, stars, and planets. When corrected for the movement of earth, the CMB is smooth. There are no ripples. Cold Dark Matter : Cold Dark Matter Since galaxies, especially spiral ones such as the whirlpool galaxy, M51, have not flown apart in the 13.7 billion years since their inception, scientists postulate the existence of cold dark matter. Clumps of cold dark matter are also needed to form galaxies if there are no radiation ripples. Cold dark matter would also affect the CMB in a way that does not match the data. More on Cold Dark Matter : More on Cold Dark Matter If galaxies formed using cold dark matter, then there should be many dwarf galaxies. There are not. Instead of dwarf galaxies, it is postulated that huge particles the size of galaxies formed globs of fuzzy cold dark matter. Since the particles interact only with gravity, they are almost impossible to detect. Cold Dark Matter—Simplified : Cold Dark Matter—Simplified 2+2+X=5 3+4+X=10 X=Cold Dark Matter Cold Dark Matter is a mysterious, unseen entity whose characteristics are unknown and likely incomprehensible to the limited mind of man. It is necessarily so, or the equations could never be claimed to work. Dispersion of Light Elements(Lisle, 2007) : Dispersion of Light Elements(Lisle, 2007) The big bang could only have produce the three lightest elements: hydrogen, helium, and lithium. The other elements formed inside stars from fusion of the lighter elements. The heavier elements were dispersed when the stars exploded. New stars formed with a mixture of light and heavy elements. Some of the original, pure, stars should still be around after the 13.7 billion years since the big bang. None have been found. What are the chances?(Totten, 2000) : What are the chances?(Totten, 2000) If the chances of something happening are less than 1 in 1050, it is basically zero. The chances that the big bang led to the abiotic universe have been calculated to be 1 in 1092. It has been estimated that the universe contains 1084 subatomic particles. 1092 would be the number of subatomic particles in one hundred million universes the size of ours. 1 in 1092 would be the chances of finding a specific subatomic particle by one random selection out of all the subatomic particles in one hundred million universes the size of ours.
