Before The Big Bang: Stephen Hawking Says Nothing Existed At Singularity

Nothing existed before the Big Bang says Stephen Hawking

Nobody knows without a doubt, however everybody has a most loved theory-everybody including prestigious British hypothetical physicist Stephen Hawking, obviously. According to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, space and time together form a space-time continuum or manifold, which is not flat, but curved by the matter and energy in it. As per Hawking, a Euclidean approach can only describe the beginning of the universe.

The legendary physicist says that whatever happened before the Big Bang, the cataclysmic explosion of matter, exists outside our current understanding of time and space.

Professor Hawking then explains that the best way to picture this reality is by thinking of imaginary time and real time beginning at our Earth's South Pole.

This subatomic ball, known as a singularity, was not inside the Universe, it was the Universe.

The Big Bang is posited as the moment when something impossibly tiny began to grow over the next billions of years to become our universe. However, regardless of how complicated a question like where did it all come from, there can always be a very "simple answer" like "Nothing simple as that".

"It just seemed that way from mankind's perspective", Hawking noted, hinting that a lot of what we believe is derived from a human-centric perspective, which might limit the scope of human knowledge of the world.




The 76-year-old Hawking explained that there can be "nothing south of the South Pole" as a basis for his argument that claimed that nothing existed before the big bang.

Physicist Stephen Hawking sits on stage during an announcement of the Breakthrough Starshot initiative with investor Yuri Milner in NY.

Mr Hawking replied: "Nothing was around before the big, big bang". The universe is now completely different and independent from what it was before the Big Bang.

In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Ross responded that while Hawking was correct that "time has a beginning", nevertheless "the beginning of time demands a Causal Agent capable of creating time independent of time". He said that considering the TV remote as a universal remote, one can rewind the time and can go back to that time when the Universe was squeezed to the size of an atom.

The president of Reasons to Believe also told CP that the model that Hawking is proposing for the origins of the Universe is problematic in light of modern astronomical observations.
