Anyone got the answer?

Last night whilst unable to sleep my mind, as it does, wandered to the origin of the universe and related questions.

I have never fully accepted the Big Bang theory as no one has really explained what caused the largest explosion ever to have happen in the universe to occur.

And if, as it is, generally accepted, the universe is expanding at an ever increasing rate and if there was nothing before the Big Bang then what is the universe expanding into?

I am off to lie down now as my brain hurts.

When you have all finished splitting your sides with laughter, the question asked was " what caused the largest explosion ever to have happen in the universe to occur" the answers is gas.

Sorry rdave I was assuming that the question related to this universe. My fault entirely, one should never make assumptions like that.

Absolutely. Assuming is thinking we know. It's plainly obvious that we know nowt about our universe. Glad we agree.

bumpkin lets say you are right, where did the spark come from to ignite the gas

"the question asked was " what caused the largest explosion ever to have happen in the universe to occur" the answers is gas."

But if everything, and please note the word everything,started with the Big Bang then there was no gas to ignite.

Even if you accept that everything began with the Big Bang ,however this may have occurred and that the universe is expanding,what is it expanding into?

Why do you assume there was any gas involved in the big bang?

The biggest explosions we've ever created using thermo nuclear bombs made no use of gas for the initial explosions.

Also, as space is a vacuum, and you can't hear anything in a vacuum, the big bang is surely a misnomer...
