Big Bang? Pull the other one ...

Whatever one thinks of all those religiously inspired creation myths, they are a lot more plausible than a supposedly scientific theory that the 'Big Bang' created equal amounts of matter and anti-matter, half of which then magically, mysteriously, or miraculously disappears.

As if that wasn't bad enough, then another unexplained event happens: superinflation. When the smoke clears we are left with a universe in which 94% of everything is unaccounted for.

Statistically speaking, that's pretty much a theory that explains nothing.

Can't stop to chat – here comes my UFO now.
