The Big Bang Never Happened: A Startling Refutation of the Dominant Theory of the Origin of the Universe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mesmerizing challenge to orthodox cosmology with powerful implications not only for cosmology itself but also for our notions of time, God, and human nature — with a new Preface addressing the latest developments in the field.

Far-ranging and provocative, The Big Bang Never Happened is more than a critique of one of the primary theories of astronomy — that the universe appeared out of nothingness in a single cataclysmic explosion ten to twenty billion years ago. Drawing on new discoveries in particle physics and thermodynamics as well as on readings in history and philosophy, Eric J. Lerner confronts the values behind the Big Bang theory: the belief that mathematical formulae are superior to empirical observation; that the universe is finite and decaying; and that it could only come into being through some outside force. With inspiring boldness and scientific rigor, he offers a brilliantly orchestrated argument that generates explosive intellectual debate.

Synopsis:

Challenges the dominant big bang theory of the origins of the universe, arguing that the universe has neither a beginning nor an end and that it has endured and evolved through an infinite period of time

Synopsis:

Forfatteren betragter teorien om universets opsten som en myte, og frems
