When I was being trained in National Security work, one of the
things the instructor stressed is that the easiest way to take control
of a population is to teach them a philosphy, religion and cosmology
that makes them feel worthless. Then it becomes a trivial matter to
dominate them.
The promotion of the Big Bang as anything more than the opinion of
a bunch of warmongering physicists is such an effort. Look at the rude,
abusive, profane methods by which the "true believers" attempt to
mentally bludgeon anyone whose heart rebels against the claim that the
universe is made only os dead matter.
So, as a Doctor of Philosophy, I diagnose the Big Bang proponents as
having a deeply sick philosophy. Now the effort is needed to contain
their illness.
Consider the source, and note that these guys are getting paid to
be guard dogs for a crumbling establishment. Also note that they are
indeed guys. Few if any women support this hogwash.
PS For a look at real cosmology, read cosmologist Joseph Campbell's
"Hero with a Thousand Faces" or "The Power of Myth". He predicts that
most of the Big Bang supporters are headed for schizophrenic crackups.
