Quantum Mechanics and the Big Bang

28 November 2012, 11:31
Is there out there anyone who has some knowledge of physical science? I have read somewhere that quantum theory and Einstein's general and special theory of relativity are not reconcilable.

I have also read somewhat about the late Sir Fred Hoyle, an atheist scientist who made it his life's work to study nucleic synthesis. This is the study of how the smaller elements such as hydrogen and helium could have fused through time to form larger elements.

Hoyle, though he died an atheist, became disillusioned with his and his team of scientists' inability to find answers to these. This led him to resign his post and he became somewhat of an outcast among fellow scientists because of his critical views on popular scientific beliefs. During a radio interview he is said to have spoken disparagingly about the big bang. It was his use of this term, the "big bang" that alienated him from most of his colleagues and yet that established this expression which is generally used to speak of that primeval super atom which is now believed among atheists to have occurred 13, 75 billion years ago, yes, 13 750 000 000 years ago.

It is preached widely even among those confessing to be Christians as an established fact. Yet there are still many problems that have to be sorted out. The greatest of all is the required observational proof!

If Prof. Hoyle attempted to discover where the larger elements originated from, he must have grappled with the question of where the very matter from which hydrogen and helium was formed about three minutes, if I remember correctly, after the big bang.

It is taught that matter formed as the energy generated by the big bang cooled down that matter had formed. But Einstein's relativity equates energy and matter are just two phases of the same substance!

This seems, as far as I, a novice as far as science is concerned, where the problem popped up. In quantum mechanics, so I understand, the electrons orbit the nucleus in a wave/particle like manner. If the substance looses energy, the electron will jump from its orbital energy level to a lower one, releasing a photon in this process.

The space the electron requires in its orbital journey, cannot be penetrated in any way.

So what?

This is where I need help, for I have forgotten my source of information. What the source did say, is that this characteristic of the electron must exclude the possibility to have caused all matter and energy to crunch into a singularity as required by the big bang theory.

I think that, if this is so, then this is why the famous professor of theoretical physics at Cambridge University, Prof. Stephen Hawking simply repeats writing that at this stage all mathematical and scientific laws becomes inapplicable.

Hawking is also the one who only keeps speaking of the inability of relativity and the quantum mechanics are not compatible. He doesn't, as far as I remember at least, say why not!

Can any of those of you who are sufficiently interested in science and who went through the trouble of reading my question up to this point, understand what the implications of the answers/s to my question will have for us who believe in creation as well as for those who reject creation and bartered it for the big bang?
