“My piece is about The Big Bang Theory, a scientific standpoint of the creation of the universe, an explanation astronomers use to explain how the universe began. Approximately 13.7 billion years ago, our universe was condensed in an infinitesimal singularity, a point of infinite denseness and heat. Suddenly, an explosive expansion began, expanding our universe outwards faster than the speed of light. This topic is a matter of opinion as to whether one believes this theory or has a different ideology. Some people believe in a more religious based belief, some believe in a more scientific theory, and some believe in a combination of both.”
