Big Bang Threatened by Axis of Evil
“We thought we knew all about the Big Bang – but a blip in the cosmic afterglow is threatening our ideas,” reported Marcus Chown in The Independent. The “Axis of Evil” he speaks of is not North Korea and Iran, but a newly found polarity in the cosmic background radiation that is not explainable by current Big Bang cosmologies. Independent-thinking cosmologists like Jorge Magueijo are heightening their anti-bang rhetoric with these findings: “there may be something seriously wrong with our big bang models,” Chown, the author of The Universe Next Door, reported. Others are trying to fit the data into current models.
The axis isn’t evil. The cosmologies built on faulty assumptions might be, but give the universe a break; it isn’t responsible for what mankind did.
