they are similar in the one way that counts; we can deduce from the data that the events happened without anyone being there at the event to witness the event thus debunking your claim we cannot know that an event occurred if nobody witnessed it.
[quote] That took plac ...[text shortened]... an explosion although it is very often misquoted as saying it does and by many flawed websites.
"How is the fact that it happened before life existed relevant to whether we can deduce from the data how it happened?"
What data? Enlighten me.
"no, there was no 'before' space/time and we are not claiming that there was and that is not part of the big bang theory because there being a before time is a logical contradiction. Can't you see that? Your above statement makes no logical sense whatsoever."
You are wrong. Space cannot expand without time expanding. They are linked. Your statement makes no logical sense.
"We are saying and claiming and have been all along that it was NOT an explosion. Please pay attention! And we can say with an extremely reasonable level of certainty that it was not an explosion because there is no evidence nor reason to believe that it was but rather the data can be by far best explained if it is space itself expanding that makes the universe expand, not an explosion"
You are saying lots of things but not proving any of it. Again, what data? Here is where you claim space is expanding but you previously claimed space/time is not expanding. You are contradicting yourself. You can't have space without time and vice versa.
"The big bang theory doesn't say there was an explosion although it is very often misquoted as saying it does and by many flawed websites."
The big bang theory doesn't say anything, people do. Theories are flawed just like you. You have no idea whether it was an explosion or not. You are just putting faith in another person's opinion and nothing more. Try thinking for yourself instead of letting others do your thinking.
