The Big Bang and CMB Radiation

Cosmic microwave background radiation is not the byproduct of your attempt to cook a raw egg, in shell, in the microwave oven. The word "cosmic" is a big clue. This radiation is the supposed leftover from the fireball of the Big Bang, and proponents of deep time believe that this is evidence for their belief. Not quite.

Secular scientists believe that the cosmic background radiation confirms the Big Bang. In reality, there are logic and science difficulties with that view.

The Big Bang has a passel of problems, and a search of this site will provide links to several discussion on that. Narrowing the focus to the CMB, while something is out there and has been mapped, bad logic from cosmogonists and cosmologists ignores other possibilities for the background radiation. This faint radiation is a prediction of the Big Bang, but scientists get many of its details wrong, and constantly have to adjust their speculations to accommodate new evidence.

One modification for the Big Bang is the "inflation theory", which looks good on computer screens but has no real observational evidence. The universe is expanding? Probably. Such a concept is well within biblical creation science views. Obviously, scientists on either side disagree on the details. It is quite clear, however, that the Big Bang is irreconcilable with the days of Creation a few thousand years ago.
Three main arguments are commonly used to support the Big Bang model of the universe’s origin:
  1. The apparent expansion of the universe, inferred from redshifted spectra of distant galaxies;
  2. The fact that the Big Bang can account for the observed relative abundances of hydrogen and helium;
  3. The observed cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation, thought to be an “afterglow” from a time about 400,000 years after the supposed Big Bang.
Although an expanding universe is consistent with the Big Bang, it doesn’t necessarily demand a Big Bang as its cause. One could imagine that for some reason God imposed an expansion on His created universe, perhaps to keep the universe from collapsing under its own gravity. Of course, this assumes that secular scientists’ interpretation of the redshift data is correct, which some creation scientists are starting to question.
