“I have no way of proving that our universe evolved following a big bang.”

There are many will say that you are in denial, that modern science is right into and on top of the concept. Sadly, I don’t. Even if when you run the metaphoric movie of science’s expanding universe backwards it eventually becomes much like that famous bird*.
I put the two explanations into the same box labelled “Oh, yeah?” (there’s two compartments, one labelled ‘Science’ and the other ‘Gods, assorted’). The science one is much smaller …
I found it hard as a kid to accept that water was incompressible. I muddled compression with pressure, and when (Beebe? Don’t ask) some inquisitive chap lowered his ball down to the depths to test it, and brought it back up, and unsprung some of the bolts, it almost exploded … full of compressed water suddenly expanding, I thought.
SO HOW, EVEN NOW
I ponder … how can all the water on this planet possibly be reduced in size to something smaller than a bucketful?
“Easy peasey, Dog … for Me … others will have to work at it!”
AND the planet itself? More wow …
AND the sun, moon, solars system too? Even bigger wow …
all (repeat) ALL the other solar systems, stars, planets, asteroids and comets and schloggs of nebular dust and for that matter universes and systems and stars and the entire universe/s it/them self/selves …. (don’t stop me now, I feel a song coming on)—
—in fact, everything ever created (by wotever means) … how can we accept that all of this was once squished down into so tiny a compressed particle it didn’t even exist? (No Reality for it to exist in, for a start.)
AND AS SUCH IT WAS
timeless, no? ‘Time’ being the medium of change—if there’s no time, you don’t have any change. And likewise.
Or do you?
Because, we are told, within our timeless non-existent infinitely massive cute little particle something changed and made the whole tiny thing quietly go POP and it exploded. (Has to be a silent POP ‘cos you need a medium for sound to travel in. Through. Whatever … and pre POP there was no such medium …)
What it expanded into has never been explained, which is just as well ‘cos I’m too thick to comprehend anyway.
I’ve just ruined my own morning, I think I’ll go read some news and cheer myself up even more. Perhaps ol’ God may revelate something to me over coffee …
AS FOR MISS WISP—
you, Sir or Madam, will keep. I have wax and pins but still need a lock of your hair …
WHERE DID YOU SAY YOU LIVE?
