A theory with more evidence than a lot of religions...

This is obviously linked to the increase in teen pregnancy: Dad dicks are getting smaller so they are forced to find younger, tighter mothers.

well the big bang is just a theory


Theory does not mean what you think it means.

[what you're thinking of is hypothesis, a theory is actually supported by evidence and considered fact until proven otherwise, the reason you can't actually prove this theory is because "proof" is a mathematical term and many things just can't (yet) be proven by math]

I remember my science/astronomy teacher in high school didn't believe in it.

I don't' think those results are truly representative. I think people's interpretations of the results are at least inaccurate.

The article itself says that only 51% really question the big bang theory. These may be people who basically accept it as true but may still be skeptical because they grew up with traditional religious explanations for why the universe exists. Furthermore, they may believe in the general idea of the big bang theory but may still question it because there is so much to be explained. The article doesn't go in depth or explain the procedures used to get these results, it's sample size, etc.

Of course, there really are people who just don't believe it at all. I'm just not convinced that that makes up 70% of America.

The show really is bad.

Is there any stats on the amount of people that follow traditional cults *cough* religions?

I truly believe 70% of Americans think the bing bang theory isn't a fact because they are too ignorant to understand the definition of a science theory. Yet these people are allowed to vote and run the government that controls all of america? It's ridiculous IMO.

I don't believe the Big Bang I don't claim it's false, but I don't understand it at all and I don't particularly feel as though a scientific claim as to how the world began really provides a meaningful answer to us about the origin of either existence or consciousness

They didn't poll my entire country so its a sample size of the population they were able to poll. So its actually 30 percent of their polled population doesn't believe in it.

pretty sure that if a survey was carried out where everyone asked was aware of and understood the evidence for the big bang then >99% would agree.
so yes, this result is expected as the general public are ignorant to science and how it works

Just because there is some evidence that supports the hypothesis, it doesn't mean that it is 100% certain that the big bang happened. It's just the best theory explaining the facts right now. If some people doubt it, they are perfectly in their right to. if they say it''s downright impossible, then you should totally crucify them.

It's not meant to provide meaning, just explain existence scientifically. The real religious question is and always will be what caused the big bang.

Big bang has been a better way of explaining the beginning of the universe so far than any other, so that's what I believe. I'm not things that nobody can confirm though, such as, is the big bang the beginning of everything for the first time, or has this been something like a cycle (I know universe is now expanding, so it might not be a reasonable thing, but perhaps) since -infinity.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

I watched a show the other day where it said a fair few scientists don't believe in the big bang theory. They were providing alternate theories throughout it.
#36
The Big Bang seems like a pretty out-there theory to me, but it's still much more plausible than creation.

A superior entity created all of life, or it's spawned billions of years after all matter is ejected from an infinitely dense "center."

Not the best options.

I'm in a state of constant disappointment with Americans.

On the sample issue, I think it matters in the US more than anywhere else, they are probably the most diverse country in the world when it comes to answering the most simple questions. Results in the Midwest, the South, the North would all be entirely different.
