Direct Evidence Of Cosmic Inflation
Physics World ^

Posted on 03/19/2014 10:05:07 AM PDT by Allen In Texas Hill Country

"The first evidence for the primordial B-mode polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) has been detected by astronomers working on the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (BICEP2) telescope at the South Pole.".........

Ran across this and thought I'd post it. Mainly because of the comments that follow. They talk in some strange language:<)))

We need to print more money to keep this from happening. /s

The “big bang” is not a sufficient explanation for the origin of the universe.

I spoke with Dr Cooper at Cal Tech and he said that since there was no mention of the influence of Δ-mode polarization I should not put too much weight on the article.

If Schroedinger’s cat was shaving with Occam’s Razor yesterday in a Black Hole, would Einstein riding on a train tomorrow in Switzerland be able to see it?

I noted some time ago that the price of ground beef in my local supermarket has been inflated to cosmically high levels.

The “big bang” is not a sufficient explanation for the origin of the universe.

Exactly. While it may be an acceptable theory on how matter and energy was disbursed and the cosmos was set in motion, it does not explain...or even come close to explaining...where all the matter and energy that was compressed into an infinitesimal point came from in the first place.

Let them explain what happened or was happening 1 second...or ten or twenty seconds BEFORE their big bang.

Is he riding with any relatives? I think that matters.

What they have confirmed is gravity waves. From something big happening.

Didn’t necessarily have to be some mythical “big bang”.

It’s called ‘creation’. The Big Bang theory was proposed by a French catholic professor/cleric le maître.

Hubble proved him correct, in part, with his observations of the Hubble constant.

Latter scientific results have continued to confirm this theory that our universe was created from ‘nothing’ in an act of creation 13.8 billion years ago.

“The “big bang” is not a sufficient explanation for the origin of the universe.”

Which is why it’s not presented as such.

No. It confirms that there is motion in the observable volume of the Universe. Further, gravity waves only confirm Einstein’s general relativity theory.

Everything else is invention supported more by wishful thinking than reality. Like the old saw about the blind men describing an elephant. We know there’s legs, we know there’s a tail, but it could just as easily be a cat or a horse as it is an elephant.

I’m sorry, but the correct answer is “No and yes”.

I don’t think the cat has any relatives. Oh....you mean Einstein. Yes....at least that’s the theory.

Scientists will tell us that, the laws of nature explain just about everything. Where the laws of nature are lacking, they'll come up with theories to explain observations that are baffling.

Yet, when looking at the early history of the universe, we're supposed to disregard the laws and theories that explain how the universe and nature work. We just have to accept that, the early universe didn't conform to known theories and laws of the cosmos. The early universe violated all known laws, and it expanded faster than the speed of light. A lawless universe is the explanation, but, a universe "being designed and developed" is unacceptable.

One of the commentators captured my thoughts perfectly:

The discovery of B-mode polarization in the CMB would be an important observation, but let's not get carried away.

I was going to say something just like that. Well, sort of like that. Without the words I don't understand, that is. Which pretty much restricts my post to "The" and "let's not".

It seems obvious that cosmic inflation has taken its toll. Do you realize what it would cost my town to build even one Death Star these days?

Please leave my relatives out of this. Their prison time should be punishment enough.

I thought this was a thread on the high price of gas from Mars.

The South Pole Telescope has seen B-mode polarization in the CMB
