Hello, If your a supporter of the "Steady State Theory" (like me) theoretically you can't dismiss the "Oscillating Theory" due to the fact it includes the provision for a Universe always being in existence.
Hello, It now appears some scientists are starting to question the big bang theory & replacing it with the "steady state theory" instead. Personally speaking I can more readily accept our Universe has always existed then being created by a big bang (from nothing) some time in the past. Regards Peter !
Alexander Friedmann (1888-1925). Russian physicist and mathematician, known for his pioneering theory that the universe was expanding, governed by a set of equations, known as the Friedmann equations. The cosmological model of general relativity would come to form the standard for both the Big Bang and Steady State theories. His work supports both theories equally. Was not until the detection of the CMB radiation that the Steady State theory was abandoned in favor of the Big Bang paradigm.
