Baryon Asymmetry, My Wayward Son

Seems that every time evolutionary cosmologists try to save the Big Bang concept, they find that they have to throw away and draw new cards. Evolutionists think they they have the hand needed to win the pot, but ad hoc theories are not working. The smart move is to not place your bets on naturalistic philosophies, since they are mighty recalcitrant.


Ad hoc theories to rescue the Big Bang keep getting overthrown by actual science. Such is the case with the "baryon asymmetry problem" explanation.

There are numerous difficulties with the Big Bang. When they are found, cosmologists come up with some theoretical explanations that look good on paper, but that's it. The universe is full of matter, and there should be equal amounts of antimatter to go with it according to this view. But no, there's not enough antimatter, so they call it the baryon asymmetry problem. Rescuing devices were made and the ante was upped, but the "solution" still showed a losing hand. They should fold and quit gambling with eternity; evidence supports the biblical creation account that there was no Big Bang and inflation, but rather, God created the universe much more recently than their philosophies will allow.
If the universe began with a big bang, then the universe ought to have equal amounts of matter and antimatter. But the universe obviously is dominated by matter, so there is an asymmetry between the amount of matter and antimatter. Baryons are a class of particles that include protons and neutrons. Protons and neutrons provide nearly all the mass of matter as we know it. Electrons, the other constituent of normal matter, belong to a class of particles called leptons, but they have only about 0.05% the mass of protons or neutrons. There are reasons to believe that the number of electrons must equal the number of protons. Since baryons dominate the matter of the universe, this problem for the big bang model is called the baryon asymmetry problem.

Antimatter may sound more like science fiction than science, but there are many good reasons to believe in antimatter. In 1928 Paul Dirac was the first to predict the existence of antimatter within the modern understanding of physics. Confirmation soon followed with Carl D. Anderson’s discovery of positrons, or antielectrons, in 1932. Other antiparticles have been detected since. Particles of matter and antimatter are very similar. The most obvious difference for charged particles is that antimatter particles have opposite charge from their matter counterparts. When a particle and its corresponding antiparticle meet, they annihilate one another in a burst of energy. The energy released is the equivalent of the particles’ masses via the famous E = mc2 Einstein equation.
