No-one in this thread has made that claim David. It's something you just made up and our now criticising as if it bears any relevance to this thread. It doesn't.

In effect they most definitely ARE assuming that Stephen Hawking knows best,

Who's 'they' David?
Again, the topic of this thread is not your dislike of mathematicians dabbling in cosmology.
I asked you to demonstrate how the Big Bang theory is not cosmology.
You then derailed the thread with your comments about mathematicians.

DavidMcC wrote: in spite of the logical inconsistencies of his claim concerning the origin of the universe.

Again, how is this in anyway relevant to the topic of this thread or my question?

PS, have you not heard of the theory of "inflation", under which the entire universe has the same fundamental constants? It is widely accepted, and I am shocked that you did not even bother to mention that you reject it (by implication).

Maybe if you engaged with what people actually wrote, rather than the fantasies you keep making up, you'd not be so shocked all the time. Ffs. :roll:
