The most popular naturalistic explanation about the origin of the universe is the big bang hypothesis. At its simplest, this view suggests that the universe emerged rapidly from a hot, dense state several billion years ago. However, there are differing versions of the big bang idea, with disagreement among the versions. As one scientist has pointed out, there are many problems with this view:
Big bang cosmology is probably as widely believed as has been any theory of the universe in the history of Western civilization. It rests, however, on many untested, and in some cases untestable, assumptions. Indeed, big bang cosmology has become a bandwagon of thought that reflects faith as much as objective truth. (G.
