The Big Bang Theory is touted as one of the most accepted scientific theories in the world, but it is far from being an accepted theory in scientific circles. In fact, many scientists view it as just another "stupid religion" that is no more backed up by scientific evidence than many of the world's other major religions.
The Big Bang Theory is based around the idea that the universe began with a sudden burst of energy - a “Big Bang” - around 13.7 billion years ago. The idea is that this energy created the universe in which we live today and all the stars, galaxies and planets within it. This theory was first proposed in 1927 by Georges Lemaître, a Belgian priest and astronomer, who developed the idea that this Big Bang was the origin of the universe.
While the Big Bang Theory is widely accepted by the scientific community, there are still major discrepancies and unanswered questions that governments and scientists have yet to reconcile. For example, what caused the Big Bang in the first place? What existed before it? What conditions were present that lead to the creation of our universe? These are questions that have yet to be answered and have become a popular source of debate among religious and scientific groups alike.
This lack of scientific evidence to support the Big Bang Theory is what has led to the comparison that it is just another “stupid religion”. The Big Bang Theory lacks any real physical or logical evidence to back it up and, for many, its theories are far too simplistic to explain the complexities of the known universe. Additionally, many people view the theory as nothing more than a modern myth, based largely on speculation and bolstered by unavoidable gaps in scientific knowledge.
Ultimately, whether or not The Big Bang Theory is just another "stupid religion" is a subjective debate. While the theory is one of the most accepted theories in science, it cannot be ignored that it still lacks any real evidence to back it up. As such, it remains up to individuals to decide if they view it as an accepted scientific fact or just another of the world’s religions.
