Astronomers In The Dark: Big Bang Debunked

"The chance that the [Big Bang] theory is right is now less than one in one hundred trillion." -- Eric J. Lerner, physicist, 1991

"If you want to find evidence refuting Big Bang Theory, just point a telescope at the sky!" -- Tom Van Flandern, astronomer, 1993

Science Daily: Astronomers' Doubts About the Dark Side: Errors in Big Bang Data Larger Than Thought?

ScienceDaily (June 11, 2010) — New research by astronomers in the Physics Department at Durham University suggests that the conventional wisdom about the content of the Universe may be wrong.

Graduate student Utane Sawangwit and Professor Tom Shanks looked at observations from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) satellite to study the remnant heat from the Big Bang. The two scientists find evidence that the errors in its data may be much larger than previously thought, which in turn makes the standard model of the Universe open to question. The team publish their results in a letter to the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Though the model of the Universe needs modifcations,the Big Bang Theory is unquestionable for all the time.Yet the Big Bang Theory is incomplete on the other hand.It doesn't explain anything about the twin universes of our universe form at the time of Big Bang,the natural law governing their origin,their fates before&after Big Bang.Besides it cannot give any important clue about its end.
