Originally posted by whodeyCorrect. The name "big bang" was made by those that wanted to ridicule the theory by the moronic straw man misrepresentation of it being just one big absurd "big bang". But it is not a "bang" at all and thus the "big bang" is a misnomer. Unfortunately, as so often happens, it is the misnomer name that stuck.
Shouldn't it be the Big "non-Bang" then?
