Question: hi who made the universe

Keywords: ,

  1. Hi papasmurf and username,

    No one made the universe.

    Lawrence Krauss, a cosmologist (someone that studies this sort of thing) has just released a book called “A Universe from Nothing: Why there is something rather than nothing”. In that book he talks about how when you have nothing, you get something due to the nature of quantum fluctuations. So it appears that the very nature of reality creates universes from nothing all by itself.

    It is now thought that our universe may just be one in a multiverse. The idea is that there are an infinite amount of universes and ours is just one. It is another part of science that is not well understood, and will be very hard to research.

    It is a very crazy thought, but also very cool.

    It is important to remember that the universe is the way it is, and it will not always make sense to us. This is one of those things.

    Below is a link to Lawrences book and a video on youtube about the same thing.

  2. As humans we can construct a model of the Universe that describes what we see. According to this imperfect model, the Universe started out incredibly small, initially rapidly expanding, then gradually slowing down, and then later speeding up. This evolution appears to be the consequence of the different fundamental forces at play in the Universe, including gravity and perhaps things like Dark Energy that may be causing the recent acceleration. At this stage, the Universe is 13.7 billion years old. But our understanding of physics is not very well set up to ask questions of how the Universe came to be and what preceded it. Science may be able to find the answer. One of the problems is that we cannot make direct observations all the way back to the Big Bang. We can go close, but not all the way. The earliest radiation we can see in the Universe is from about 300,000 years after the Big Bang, when the Universe cooled down enough that protons and electrons could make hydrogen atoms. At this point light waves became free to propagate. Up to that stage, they could not travel far before hitting a proton or electron, which upset them. This early radiation can be seen as the Cosmic Microwave Background. Have a look at to see the results of the astonishing experiments to observe the CMB. So, we can theorise about how the Universe started and we can get some observational hints from the evolution of the Universe we see now, but I suspect a fundamental roadblock might be that we can’t see past the CMB to the very beginning. Science cannot rule out the existence of a creator. Personally I don’t find a creator a very satisfying solution. But even if quantum fluctuations of a vacuum are the answer, where did the fluctuations come from, and what was the nature of that vacuum? Who knows. I’m greatly attracted to the many Universe model, in which universes are created and destroyed all the time. With only those coming into existence with physical laws that allow them to be long-lived being the ones that have the time to form life like us. Took our solar system 5 billion years to produce us.


  3. Hellp papasmurf and username,
    No one really created the universe. There are several theories about how our universe came to exist in its current state, such as the Big Bang Theory. According to this theory, the universe was once in a very hot, dense state which expanded rapidly, causing itself to cool and continue to expand (and it is still actually expanding!). Astronomers think that our universe is around 13.75 billion years old, and there also many theories that suggest that it is only one of several universes in existence. It is thought that there are many universes that are constantly being created and destroyed, with the ones that have more favourable conditions existing for longer than those ones without such good conditions. No one really understands exactly how the Big Bang happened but there is a lot of interest in trying to find out!


  4. Very well covered by the others.
