    If an electron and proton is simultaneously attracted and repelled to/from each other to form an atom, hydrogen, (and not collapse back into a neutron) then why can’t gravity do the same: attract stars and planets to each other and expand the universe at the same time?
    We could then throw the big-bang into the mythological garbage.

    Or do we have a “little-bang” that explains why electrons are repelled from protons?

    Read this to see why your analogy doesn't apply

    I remember all those numbers from college, and also that the universe cannot exist because it needs anti-particles to exist... and that light has no time to travel and yet it travels so fast that it makes everything with time stationary .. and so on to the limits of the big-bang.

    After a few futile years I had to accept that numbers, especially big-numbers, and especially small-numbers, only make bull-shit smell nice. I quit on big-numbers and fancy equations years ago when I read all I could on string-theory and super-string theories and tunnels and funnels and god knows what.


    For me it is the ultimate insanity to screw around with small 10 to the minus-27 numbers when 9/10 of the universe is fricking missing. I mean where are we are we going to draw the line between wisdom and stupidity.

    I don't really understand your complaint about big and small numbers. If you want to study the universe, it's a pretty darn big place. Big numbers seem appropriate. If you want to study the subatomic - well, it's pretty small. Small numbers seem appropriate. I don't understand what your complaint is
