The Big Bang is the dominate model for the beginning of the universe. It gives an age for the universe of about 13.7 billion years. What happens after the initial bang reaches temperatures cool enough to condense into matter becomes a matter of chemistry, physics, quantum mechanics and relativity. Explaining how the first stars came to be is a major problem. You can find out more about this and other problems the big bang has on our Big Bang Problems page. Once you get the first stars, there is little difference between the creation science explanation of what is going on and how the big bang scientists explain what is going on. We give some of the differences on our White Hole, Young Earth Creation Science Cosmology page.
This page is links to help you understand the Big Bang. We do not link to problems on this page, only explanation of the thinking of Big Bang cosmologists.
You may find some contradictory "facts" as you browse the pages. There is a good reason for this. Ten years ago, the general thinking was that the universe is bounded, finite in size and curved. Today, most cosmologists are thinking that the universe is unbounded, infinite and flat... except that spacetime is curved. If you don't understand what we have just written, start browsing the links below. We have attempted to put them in an order that will walk you through your understanding of the Big Bang.
