    When was it ever said that the big bang is an irreducible and indivisible entity seriously? When was big bang thought to equate to God?

    There is no other reading of what the BBT represents. It does not seek something small but the first smallest.

    I did not say it does. I asked a scientific question relating to an assumed first entity in a finite universe.

    Well potentially there can be always smaller and that means it can potentially never be indivisible progressively. I.e. I have never heard of BBT seeking for something smallest and indivisible through hard science.

    This refers to the Grand Unified Theory, whereby the basic particles common to all things in the universe are made from. Once this was seen as quarks as its potential, then this was abandoned when deeper cadence was found.

    If the universe is expanding, it means it is finite, which in turn points to one base particle which exploded and expanded to the current universe. Such a premise is unscientific when better considered. It begs the question, where did the particle expand to - because then there was no space; and what caused the BANG - when there was nothing to interact with? Unless I am missing something, this seems clearly unfeasable as a science pursuit.

    That is because you have no idea what the hell you are talkin' about.

    As usual.

    Correct. Just ignore my posts. I gave my premise what cannot be answered, but I don't know what I'm talking about - and you correctly explained which part.

    anything that begins with why

    (not to be confused with "anything that begins with what")

    "What is the meaning of life?" Hmmm... I don't think 'science' can answer this question because the question assumes itself as the premise.

    "Why is lightgigantic so annoying?" Now, this one I think I can scientifically answer.

    Not true.

    Why is the sky blue?
    Why are aeroplane wings shaped the way they are?................

    etc

    Is this REALLY a science thread! Of note is the only question with reality based science was asked by me. Let's just say I was hoping to establish the poster's intelectual levels.

    What's the smallest (positive) real number?

    It cannot be ONE - this does not exist in actuality. One does not mean 'one apple', because an apple by itself cannot exist in the universe. Everything is a minumum duality to exist, namely 1 +

    Well, if my socks are having babies, they must be putting them up for adoption, because I wind up with less, not more.

    Check again. One does not come out but one holding the sock is seen.

    There is no pristine and absolute ONE in the universe. One is an indivisable and irreducible quantum, else it is not one. One means only one, with nothing else existing - internally or externally. There is only 1+.

    Easy, there is no smallest (positive) real number only smaller.
