It doesn't really prop up the Big Bang theory so much as it props up our theory of Gravity.
As an interesting side-note, neutrinos were discovered because there was a problem with radiation levels from supernovae. We decided there had to be something else that we couldn't see, we called it a 'neutrino', and we went looking for it. We're at the same stage with dark matter that we were with neutrinos not too long ago.(I apologize, but this is a simplified overview of neutrinos).
Dark matter is something that needs to exist for gravity to work the way it does, according to our current understanding of gravity. In other words, the same gravity that works on earth, works without dark matter. But, the same gravity isn't sufficient to hold galaxies together without dark matter.
"It doesn't really prop up the Big Bang theory so much as it props up our theory of Gravity." Would that be because things are suppose to be moving in a way consistent with the big bang theory, but since they are not there must be something holding it all back.
No. Actually, the Big Bang theory suggested that the Universe would slow down in its acceleration and eventually collapse in on itself, but we are finding that to not be the case.
It has to do with experiments that were done with bending light, modelling galaxies, etc... When researchers modeled the Milky Way with the same model of gravity that we use on earth, stars and solar systems just flew violently out of orbit in the simulations. They had to crank up gravity by something like 500% to get it to work properly. The only way that gravity could be that high, is for there to be matter that we can't see yet.
The Big Bang problem with acceleration is being addressed with dark energy, which is completely different than dark matter. The word 'dark' is just used because it's something we can't detect right now.
Would that mean that no matter what instant and where we are standing in accordance to everything and nothing, the free flying particles that are everywhere it seems in spurts are neutrinos. I have found that neutrinos are formed from solar flares, among others such as supernovas, black hole events, etc, that in the moment creates a single, and sometimes grouped neutrino compacts. I believe that these articles are the concept behind the gravity of the universe as a whole. It's as if saying, just as elements have so many electrons, neutrons, and protons, and each sub group has a gravity lined center, nucleus, that holds it together.
Planets=particles on micro scale, would give rise to ever deceasing sizes of things, planet, human, ant, micro organism, protons, neutrinos, ?, ?, ?, and so forth
Hey Hubbers,I was digging through some of my research and since a lot of it is philosophy based(meaning it's about answering questions and reasoning), I happen to cross an interesting tidbit I figured I would share with...
Do you believe the big bang theory? Why or why not?Do you believe this theory supports the existence of god? Do you think that this theory is supported by only Christian scientist, non-Christian scientist, or both? Why...
I'm sure if you listen to this audio file you'll agree that the Big Bang theory has fizzled. http://www.audiosancto.org/auweb/200804 … izzles.mp3-----------------------------------How many academics does it take...
