AH, you don't know the true story of how the universe was created.
We have it right about the big bang, inflation, CBR, galaxies, and all that but what we didn't know till recently was what was the big bang, how did it come about. That is an era 400,000 years before what we see now as the cosmic background radiation.
What really happened is God had to take a crap or so he thought, but instead he had this REALLY big fart and that's what led to the big bang. Just so you know.
