    The physics of the universe is isotropic and you expect to see the same kind of structures all over the universe, but it is not uniform and it's structure is not symmetric.

    1) Let's assume for a second that the big bang originated from a singularity/point source. Would the zero-dimensionality of the singularity not produce a uniform or symmetrical universe in the absence of true randomness, or is chaos enough to produce what we see?

    2) If true randomness is not yet proven (though, as far as I know, strongly supported by evidence) and exclusive determinism is taken as fact, is the structure of the universe not then evidence that the big bang did not originate from a singularity/point source, but from a chaotic, multi-dimensional body?


    Disclaimer: I do not declare myself to be an expert on ANY subject. If I state something as fact that is obviously wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me. I welcome such corrections in an attempt to be as truthful and accurate as possible.
