Skip to comments.Forget Big Bang-'Rainbow Gravity' theory-universe has NO beginning & stretches out infinitely

To think that our universe is 13.8 billion years old is incredible enough.
But now researchers are proposing that the universe stretches back into time infinitely with no singular point where it started.
The idea is one possible result of something known as rainbow gravity- a theory that is not widely accepted among physicists, though many say the idea is interesting.
The theorys name comes from a suggestion that gravity's effect on the cosmos is felt differently by varying wavelengths of light, which can be found in the colours of the rainbow.
The theory was proposed 10 years ago in an attempt to reconcile difference between the theories of general relativity and quantum mechanics.
Researchers claim it highlights flaws in the Big Bang theory, which suggests the universe was born about 13.8 billion years ago when an infinitely dense point - known as a 'singularity' - exploded.
According to Einstein's general relativity, huge objects warp space-time so that anything travelling through it, such as light (regardless of its frequency), takes a curving path.
The Big Bang theory was formulated in 1922 by Alexander Friedmann.
Friedmann began with Einstein's equations of general relativity and found a solution to those equations in which the universe began in a state of high density and temperature....

My immediate thoughts were along those lines. It’s wonderful how the Bible already told us this.
If that was the case, then wouldn't gravitational lensing by supermassive black holes create a prism effect along the electromagnetic spectrum?
I suspect the universe has been here all along and that it’s the state of matter that’s changed.
I’ll take the Hubble constant for $500 Bob.
This can’t be...
The science is settled...
More science for the scientific to peruse and perhaps post at Catastrophism.
Uhh. Visible light, as seen in the rainbow, is an itsy-bitsy segment of the EM spectrum. It's only really distinguishing characteristic is that humans are able to see it.
Now that would be an interesting experiment to prove. Cool idea though...
And what is gravity? First and foremost, its an amazingly weak force. The entire Earth is pulling on me right now (and I on it), yet I can still jump away from it with just the power in my legs (albiet briefly).
But back to my point, to conquer gravity we are going to have to at least understand what it is. All we have is the observable effects.
Is Left trying to insinuate that the universe was made up of gay particles when it was first formed?
A perfect summary for that which is beyond human comprehension.
Sister Bernadette told me this in grade school.
Oh my God Thomas Pynchon was right!!!
Forget Big Bang-’Rainbow Gravity’ theory-universe has NO beginning & stretches out infinitely, >>>>>>>>
Its realy simple, but its just not over until the flat lady sings:
(Imagining the 10th dimension, annotated)
Well the big bang theory certainly doesn’t explain the origin of the universe. Try this. It’ll get you a government grant for a while, and then you can try another theory.
Got to this point and my BS meter started buzzing.
The same Lord known as the Great I AM and Who has no discernible beginning or end. The universe is a pinprick compared to God's eternal existence.
Mankind/scientists can't really understand/devise the questions, much less find the true answers with the same math that tells us that statistically there is no life in the universe, much less an evolved human race on Earth.
Without missing a beat, Dr Sagan simply replied, "hyperspace".
