Big Bang Bunkum?

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.
The widely accepted age of the universe, as estimated by general relativity, is 13.8 billion years. In the beginning, everything in existence is thought to have occupied a single infinitely dense point, or singularity. Only after this point began to expand in a “Big Bang” did the universe officially begin.Although the Big Bang singularity arises directly and unavoidably from the mathematics of general relativity, some scientists see it as problematic because the math can explain only what happened immediately after—not at or before—the singularity.

I'm sure you've already seen my article on cosmology, but just in case:

Continued here:

In a nutshell, ideas of what space-time actually is need revising if an adequate explanation for the many things that cosmologists cannot (by their own admission) explain is to be achieved.
It implies a multiverse, based on Lee Smolin's idea that a universe is a black hole.

BTW, the stand-alone big bang is, indeed, bunkum - see my article.

For the benefit of those who haven't read my article linked above, it does not mean that the universe has always existed, only that the ""hyperspace continuum" has always existed (see the article).
