The Big Bang 2

Strictly speaking it's not an event, its a theory. Further, to be an historical event it has to take place after the dawn of recorded history.

As such it doesn't belong on this list at all, but I give it two stars just to put it ahead of the Creation myths, which have even less place.

Although on a personal level, the time I nailed Debbie Whatsherface back in highschool after a month of pursuit qualifies as a Big Bang in my history.

The Big Bang 5

Whatever you call it, or however you believe it happened, the forming of matter is very relevant to how we live today.

The Big Bang 1

This doesn't belong on the list. History is defined as that period of time since there have been written records. So this event would win the "Most Important Event in Prehistory" prize, but it's not historical.

The Big Bang 5

There is no such thing as a BIG BANG without *any* form of consciousness. It is *first* consciousness, *then* creation. Creation is undeniable but that does not exclude a Big Bang or a Darwinian or any other model the mind can think of.

But in this "Ultimate List" I would consider the Big Bang in the top 3.

PS. perhaps the most important event is You?

The Big Bang 5

As a practicing Catholic, and as a physics grad student, I see Creation and the Big Bang as two sides of the very same event, as such, I will be leaving this exact review, word for word, under the listing for both events.  

A somewhat simplistic approach is that the Big Bang answers the question "What?", while Creation answers the question "How?" There is a lot of evidence that the universe is expanding, and there have been various discoveries that support the theory of the Big Bang, such as the discovery of the background radiation of the universe. The Big Bang theory actually seems to fit pretty well with the general idea of creation as presented in the Bible. In the beginning there was practically nothing, an instant later, the universe exists. So in my mind this seems to correspond pretty well to God setting everything in motion.

Without considering both of these aspects of the beginning of time, something seems to be missing. I could go into further detail, but I think it's just better that I end with a quote from Albert Einstein.

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind. "

The Big Bang 1

What to make of all of this? From my understanding, no acknowledged academician of the time left any historic record of the event, 'Big' or small. Investigative science on the matter arises from educated conjecture based on extensive awareness of physical reality but remains speculative, while excluding from the equation, as it does, any other possibility or incidence. Where the 'Bang!' itself is concerned, have read recent opinion that no such sound is scientifically possible lest Air become present and still we seem to have reached no agreement about whether sound can be heard when there is no one around to perceive it.

More in earnest: we certainly must endeavor to ponder and understand the cause and origins of our existence, the realm where many philosophies have thrived; but must also be practical about our awareness about the considerable limitations of which the human intellect is subject, regarding an event so truly extraordinary and which, if measurable in time, is distant in countless millenia. That Divine intervention may not suit everyone's reasoning should not lead to underestimating the imperfections of our still privileged species. It might be just as well that the debate endures. Assuming all of us were able to discern the Truth in equal measure, can't imagine what quest or concern would conceivably follow.

The Big Bang 4

The theory was losing steam during the middle to late 20th century but during the last 20-30 years new technology concerning astronomy has given the ol' theory some real legs. . .

This is one of the most stupid theories I have ever heard. I don't see what's so hard about accepting creation. It sounds so much sensible than BANG!

The Big Bang 5

The Big Bang Theory gives more credence to the existence of a supreme being than any other that I know. Consider this. There is a huge inchoate mass of matter of unimaginable proportions. Some force causes it to explode forming the universe. Query One: Where did the huge mass come from and how long was it there? Query Two. What was the force suddenly to cause it to explode? Pope Pius XII, a man of enormous intellect and learning, came to the view that the Big Bang was the Act of Creation. I listened to him and pondered it for many years, and the BB makes sense if you believe in natural causes and science. I know that the goober telepreachers bawling into their mikes are not going to agree, but I'll wager some still think that Joshua made the sun and moon stop in the sky during a battle in the Bible.

Strange you should mention God lighting the fuse, man. My friends mom is an artist and did a painting of a firecracker that read "big bang" with an ominous, God-like hand extending a finger to set it off. It was pretty cool.

How can something as complex as this wonderful creation explode from nothing?  Everything has to have a creator.

Give the credit to GOD... HE did it all!

ASSUMING that this is true, it's probably the most important as you can't have the rest of these events without it.
