I find astronomy quite fascinating! But there are so many theories and we don’t really know much about the origin of the universe.
Thank you for your comment. Personally, I agree with both the things you say – astronomy is quite fascinating, and we really don’t know much about the origin of the universe. Not only is that so, but it is only going to get worse. Because as Einstein pointed out, the more we learn the bigger the questions become. As a single example, once we had the idea that the universe began with a Big Bang, just think of the questions we started to ask then – such as: is this the first big bang or has our universe been exploding and contracting before? were there other big bangs in other universes? is the big bang the best explanation we can come up with? if there was a big bang, what happened before that? and what caused it to happen? if it wasn’t a big bang that started it, what was it that happened 67 billion years ago that has produced the universe as we are discovering it?
Wouldn’t you agree that if one doesn’t like questions, one certainly shouldn’t become a scientist?
Thank you again. Hope you stop by again.
