The Big Bang?????????
There was no Big Bang
This is evident for the fact that there is no sound in space.
An atmosphere is required in order to exist sound.
So just as an act of Common Sense, If it walks like a duck don't call it a pig.
In my opinion, a more accurate definition of the hypothesis would be the Big Flash .
Just a thought within reason.

“Bang” can refer to either a noise or an explosion. If you’re going to be pedantic, at least do it right!

However I fail to see where the word bang is defined as an explosion.
Fundamentalism and Science do not favor each other.

You are incorrect anyway. Sound doesn't need to exist in empty space to cause an equivalant big bang. Besides, i'm not actually sure what you even mean.

According to Merriam-Webster:
1 : a resounding blow
2 : a sudden loud noise
3 a : a sudden striking effect b : a quick burst of energy

According to cosmictraveler a big bang is when I lay a fat chick!!

Yeh... and the big crunch is when the baby falls out... eh?

The universe was dense enough at the time of the big bang for sound to carry quite adequately.

This was what i was thinking, but without enough scientific cred, i never said anything. I was basing this on the dense black holes, which are also supposed to vibrate a small humming noise. :-)

If God wanted it to bang then it damn well banged.

aaahhh, an explosion is the most powerful force humans create, but thinking in human terms is a hindrance. The supreme limitation, now how do we surpass this limitation?

Spider... light was the first gas and element in the universe... everything is just trapped light....

They could be sound, EM, gravity, waves ect.
Yet what would be the medium? Ok you say gas, how can a medium for sound waves exist in the zero atmosphere vacuum of space?
There is no sound waves in the void of space, plenty of EM waves however no sound waves.
One step further, if there did exist a big bang, would it be safe to say that the universe has no walls, for if it did, would there not exist a big echo?
Just a thought

You are misinterpreting vacuum to mean "completely devoid of matter". There is no such thing as a "perfect vacuum" in space. A very, very, very low density gas occupies the space between galaxies. This gas can support sound waves whose wavelengths are considerably longer than the gas' mean free path.
The mean free path was extremely short at the time of the big bang. The infant universe carried sound.
And stop being so pedantic, anyhow. "Big bang" sounds a lot flashier than "big flash".
