    Big Bang breakthrough team allows they may be wrong

    Washington (AFP) - American astrophysicists who announced just months ago what they deemed a breakthrough in confirming how the universe was born now admit they may have got it wrong.

    The team said it had identified gravitational waves that apparently rippled through space right after the Big Bang.

    If proven to be correctly identified, these waves -- predicted in Albert Einstein's theory of relativity -- would confirm the rapid and violent growth spurt of the universe in the first fraction of a second marking its existence, 13.8 billion years ago.


    David Spergel, a theoretical astrophysicist at Princeton University, ... "I think in retrospect, they should have been more careful about making a big announcement," he said.

    You appear to be a decent brother, but this question is way off topic ... and it shows your true colors.

    Thank you for the comment, I try. I'm not quite sure why the question is way off topic though. Would you care to explain?? As far as colors, I am an athiest and I make no apologies for that. I just find it interesting that "believers" don't mind questioning what some may see as flaws in science but they don't use the same critical thinking when it come to thier everlasting soul.

    Sure, I'll explain, although you already know what makes it off-topic, smh ... The Title has nothing to do with the question you asked concerning organized religion:

    Big Bang breakthrough team allows they may be wrong

    It would have been better had you at least addressed the Thread's topic, first, in my opinion, before asking the question:


    Isn't it time that organized religion do the same??

    Well, d'uh! It's a "theory", i.e., an educated guess, NOT a fact. So of course, they might be wrong. :10500:

    Not to mention Big Bang is a THEORY, whereas religion is a "belief." Apples and oranges....

    Right again Kadijah, batting a 1, 000% :)

    My attention is drawn to this portion:

    David Spergel, a theoretical astrophysicist at Princeton University, ... "I think in retrospect, they should have been more careful about making a big announcement," he said.


    Understanding the scientific process, they've got all the time in the world, no rush, no push ...
