“People just basically kept on going inventing stuff. No observational evidence has emerged for any of it,” observed Neil Turok about the multiverse theory. However, the noted cosmologist at Caltech, Sean Carroll described the alternative theory that Turok’s team proposed as “speculative.” These statements from Erik Vance’s article “A Mirror Image of Our Universe May Have Existed before the Big Bang” present again the increasing conflicts of secular paradigms to explain the universe. Science is observable and testable, but the current cosmological theories for the origin of the universe fall short as experts defend their opposing theories.
“People just basically kept on going inventing stuff. No observational evidence has emerged for any of it,” observed Neil Turok about the multiverse theory. However, the noted cosmologist at Caltech, Sean Carroll described the alternative theory that Turok’s team proposed as “speculative.” The previous statements are from Erik Vance’s article “A Mirror Image of Our Universe May Have Existed before the Big Bang.” Vance presents the increasing conflicts of secular paradigms to explain the universe. Science is observable and testable, but the current cosmological theories for the origin of the universe fall short as experts defend their opposing theories.
Secular Science Fiction of a Non-Sequential Past
Humanity can never observe a multiverse or a multiverse generator, but that does not keep secular scientists from proposing a mindless creator. Turok reflected on how multiverse theories assume symmetry beyond the universe. In other words, the cause of the universe must necessitate its order by its nature to create a uniform cosmos. Some have proposed a high-energy vacuum field existing beyond universe that could produce more than particle but whole universes almost unendingly. However, such a multiverse generator requires space, a tensed state, and laws. Because such a generator could not exist infinitely in the past to never reach the present, such a generator would have to a beginning and thus a cause.
The writer and Live Science contributor, Erik Vance reported that Boyle, Finn, and Turok developed a new theory of another mirroring universe in space-time because of the “bizarre add-ons” to explain the multiverse. Their theory proposes that “both universes were created at the Big Bang and exploded simultaneously backward and forward in time.” Their theory of mirroring universes in space-time would explain why the universe’s laws of physics remain constant and balanced across tremendous numerical options. Turok’s team perceives that a universe moving into past time would mean the universe is moving in reverse in time. They believe that such a mirroring universe would explain the precise balance of the laws of the universe. However, the theory explains neither the first cause of the universe nor the constancy of the laws of the universe. This thinking also changes the semantics of time further away from sequential tensed time.
Humanity can observe neither a metaphysical multiverse generator nor anything moving in reverse in space-time and especially not another universe moving into past space-time. If a universe in moving unending in reverse into time’s past, then this requires a non-existent past and an increase into a potentially infinite past. No longer is time moving in one direction. Boyle, Finn, and Turok’s theory bucks a fundamental principle of the philosophy of science that every effect has a greater cause. However, an unending universe moving into past time negates sequential causality.
The First Cause in the Genesis of the Universe
Vance presented the Big Bang as the origin of the universe when he asserted that physicists have “a pretty good idea of the structure of the universe just a couple of seconds after the Big Bang.” Vance noted that experts presume the singularity, the proposed single point of the origin of the universe, expanding outward, and the first moment of the expansion setting the basic laws of physics. The first cause of the universe set the laws of physics very early from the beginning of the universe. Besides design, no observable scientific evidence exists to explain uniformity in the universe. The Book of Genesis reveals that God created the universe in the beginning and set the laws nature in the completion of each part of His creation (Gen 1).
The universe’s expansion and state of entropy still necessitates a first cause. The universe must have a cause for its beginning that exists beyond the universe. That cause must be more powerful than the universe having created everything within the universe. The first cause must also explain the balance of cosmological laws of gravity, weak atomic force, strong atomic force, and electromagnetism. Secular scientists assume uniformity and constancy of the universe to make predictions, yet a secular paradigm of science provides no necessary reason for uniformity.
The cause of the universe must exist beyond the universe, outside of the laws of nature, and be immensely powerful to create the universe. The best explanation for the cause of the universe and the precise of balance of cosmological constants is God. The mindful Creator made the universe and everything within it. “In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1).
