The Big Bang Theory

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

THE BIG BANG THEORY No one knows how, why or when the universe was exactly formed; and who had created it, if there was to be such a being known as a Creator. From the emergence of the first civilizations, man has wondered the why of the light and of the darkness, why of the thunder and of the lightning, why of the life and the death and their instinctive way of approaching the reality which made him to think of secret habitations where eminently superior beings, who managed their destinations and those of the world.
