Bill Bryson
“Tune your television to any channel it doesn't receive and about 1 percent of the dancing static you see is accounted for by this ancient remnant of the Big Bang. The next time you complain that there is nothing on, remember that you can always watch the birth of the universe.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“People cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey schoolteacher asserted that evolution and the Big Bang are not scientific and that Noah's ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it's about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Stephen Hawking
“The role played by time at the beginning of the universe is, I believe, the final key to removing the need for a Grand Designer, and revealing how the universe created itself. … Time itself must come to a stop. You can’t get to a time before the big bang, because there was no time before the big bang. We have finally found something that does not have a cause because there was no time for a cause to exist in. For me this means there is no possibility of a creator because there is no time for a creator to have existed. Since time itself began at the moment of the Big Bang, it was an event that could not have been caused or created by anyone or anything. … So when people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the Big Bang, so there is no time for God to make the universe in. It’s like asking for directions to the edge of the Earth. The Earth is a sphere. It does not have an edge, so looking for it is a futile exercise.”
Stephen W. Hawking

Robert J. Sawyer
“There is no indisputable proof for the big bang," said Hollus. "And there is none for evolution. And yet you accept those. Why hold the question of whether there is a creator to a higher standard?”
Robert J. Sawyer, Calculating God

Carl Sagan
“By looking far out into space we are also looking far back into time, back toward the horizon of the universe, back toward the epoch of the Big Bang.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

Deepak Chopra
“If the fate of the universe was decided in a single moment at the instant of the Big Bang , that was the most creative moment of all.”
Deepak Chopra

Sam Harris
“120 million of us place the big bang 2,500 years after the Babylonians and Sumerians learned to brew beer.”
Sam Harris, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason

Lawrence M. Krauss
“Now, almost one hundred years later, it is difficult to fully appreciate how much our picture of the universe has changed in the span of a single human lifetime.

As far as the scientific community in 1917 was concerned, the universe was static and eternal, and consisted of a one single galaxy, our Milky Way, surrounded by vast, infinite, dark, and empty space.

This is, after all, what you would guess by looking up at the night sky with your eyes, or with a small telescope, and at the time there was little reason to suspect otherwise.”
Lawrence M. Krauss, A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather Than Nothing

Belinda Bauer
“Death was an inverse Big Bang; an impossible magic trick where everything had become nothing in the very same instant, where one state had been replaced so completely by another that no evidence of the first could be detected, and where the catalyst had been vaporized by the sheer shock of the new.”
Belinda Bauer, Rubbernecker

Harlow Shapley
“Some piously record 'In the beginning God', but I say 'In the beginning hydrogen'.”
Harlow Shapley

Olaf Stapledon
“This microcosm was pregnant with the germ of a proper time and space, and all the kinds of cosmical beings. Within this punctual cosmos the myriad but not unnumbered physical centers of power, which men conceive vaguely as electrons, protons, and the rest, were at first coincident with one another. And they were dormant. The matter of ten million galaxies lay dormant in a point.”
Olaf Stapledon, Star Maker

Bill Maher
“New Rule: Instead of using their $10 billion atom-smashing Large Hadron Collider to re-create the Big Bang by melting atom parts in temperatures a million times hotter than the sun, scientists should not do that. I'm just sayin' it sounds dangerous. I'm as interested as the next guy in determining the origin of matter, but first couldn't we solve some simple mystery, like why some-detector batteries always die at four a.m.?”
Bill Maher, The New New Rules: A Funny Look At How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass

“When the Great Explosion occurred, from infinitely large energy, matter was created. So, that first thing was the idea!”
Skender Nitaj

Jozef Simkovic
“The conclusion of many of the scientists on the Earth that consciousness is not involved in the expanding of the physical universe after what they call the Big Bang is an illusion, by Hadien.”
Jozef Simkovic, How to Kiss the Universe: An Inspirational Spiritual and Metaphysical Narrative about Human Origin, Essence and Destiny

“За скінченний час стала Хаббла стане нескінченною, і Всесвіт припинить своє існування Великим розривом. Це відбуватиметься так: спершу віддалені галактики відлетять від нас, потім розпадеться Місцева група, далі - наша Галактика, згодом - Сонячна система, потім Городок відлетить від Львова, Бровари - від Києва, а Зміїв - від Харкова, і врешті-решт, коли сила гравітаційного відштовхування стане сильнішою навіть за ядерні сили, розпадуться атоми та їхні ядра. Як би лячно це не виглядало, Великий розрив може статися не раніше, ніж за 55 мільярдів років, і у людства до того часу буде вдосталь інших можливостей загинути.”
Сергій Парновський, Як влаштовано Всесвіт. Вступ до сучасної космології

Jozef Simkovic
“Everything in all manifested universes is composed of strings. They are created immediately after a Big Bang and they rapidly multiply like viruses or bacteria until they are brought under the control by dark matter and dark energy.”
Jozef Simkovic, How to Kiss the Universe: An Inspirational Spiritual and Metaphysical Narrative about Human Origin, Essence and Destiny

Jamal Nazrul Islam
“If the standard model is correct, the universe started in a state of high density and temperature, with all matter and radiation forming one great continuous mass. It is very remarkable that this undifferentiated soup should have the intrinsic property that in due course of time it develops into galaxies of which at least one creates life with such staggering complexity, subtlety and diversity and often such stunning beauty. It also creates thinking and feeling beings which in turn can contemplate the universe and study its properties and which can love and hate.”
Jamal Nazrul Islam, The Ultimate Fate Of The Universe

Jamal Nazrul Islam
“Indeed, it is not clear whether it is meaningful to talk about 'after' the big crunch, just as it is not clear whether it is meaningful to talk about what happened 'before' the big bang. These questions are not necessarily meaningless, but the fact is we simply do not know.”
Jamal Nazrul Islam, The Ultimate Fate Of The Universe

Jamal Nazrul Islam
“One of the most intriguing problems is to understand the precise nature of time, especially with regard to the big bang, the big crunch and the long-term future of an open universe.”
Jamal Nazrul Islam, The Ultimate Fate Of The Universe

Germany Kent
“When the spotlight is on its too late to prepare. You'll only have two options: Sink or Swim”
Germany Kent

“Stars are scars from afar.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Sean Carroll
“Descubrimos que no somos los protagonistas principales de la vida en el cosmos, sino un minúsculo epifenómeno, que hemos florecido durante un breve instante sobre la ola del aumento de entropía que va del big bang al silencioso vacío que le espera al futuro universo.”
Sean Carroll, From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time

“The Big Bang is a Big Blunder in the history of science.”
Khalid Masood

Rajesh`
“I owe my origin to an explosion, and yet I long for peace.”
Rajesh`

Alberto Fernández Soto
“Existe una tendencia general a considerar, en el lenguaje de la calle, que hay una cierta graduación en la fiabilidad de las teorías y modelos en función del nombre que se les asigna. Así, un -principio- o una -ley- serían certezas científicas prácticamente absolutas, una -teoría- tendría una fiabilidad moderada, y un -modelo- sería poco más que un experimento mental o un juego académico. De esta forma, los proponentes de ideas alternativas afirman que -el modelo del Big Bang es sólo un modelo-, o que -la teoría de la Evolución de Darwin es sólo una teoría-, mientras que casi nadie osa oponerse al -Primer Principio de la Termodinámica- o a la -Ley de la Gravitación Universal-.”
Alberto Fernández Soto, Orígenes: El universo, la vida, los humanos

Alberto Fernández Soto
“El modelo del origen del Universo que conocemos como Gran Explosión ha pasado en menos de 100 años de ser una creación casi puramente intelectual a constituir uno de los modelos básicos que los físicos tienen para entender todo lo que observan a su alrededor.”
Alberto Fernández Soto, Orígenes: El universo, la vida, los humanos

Salman Ahmed Shaikh
“We have an ability to recognise our consciousness and conscience. Using our senses and rational faculties of inference, we come to know that the lifeless matter and living beings owe their existence to someone else due to their inability to explain their existence by self-creation. Matter has not created itself. Life in its complex and intelligent form in humans can also not be explained by self- creation. Matter is malleable in our hands and we can convert it into different ways to make aero planes, skyscrapers and pyramids. Using geo-engineering, we are striving to even transform climate of entire planet. We, having this ability or potential have also only come into existence in this world few hundred years ago. Thus, even after gaining tremendous advances in artificial intelligence, we cannot claim to explain our existence through self-creation and creation of consciousness from unconsciousness. In a mindless universe, we find ourselves as sentient beings in search of the origin and meaning of life.”
Salman Ahmed Shaikh, Reflections on the Origins in the Post COVID-19 World

Salman Ahmed Shaikh
“Scientific discoveries have added more substance to the verse ‘Which of God's blessings will you forget’. Astrophysics has proved that there are too many features of blessings in various forms. Astrophysics has taken us near to the exact fraction of a second when God's command brought the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. Big Bang can explain what happened afterward, but not what was before it, who was behind it and why did we come to exist in this world in the first place. We can force the question of purpose out of sight, but not out of significance and importance to a thinking mind.”
Salman Ahmed Shaikh, Reflections on the Origins in the Post COVID-19 World

“Big bang theory delivers a near fatal blow to naturalistic philosophy, for the naturalistic credo regards reality as an unbroken sequence of cause and effect that can be traced back endlessly. But the big bang represents a sudden discontinuity in the chain of cause and effect. It means science can trace events back in time only to a certain point; at the moment of the big bang explosion, science reaches an abrupt break, an absolute barrier.”
Charles Colson, God and Governing

“I believe that integrating science concepts into exciting stories is the best way for students to learn.”
Peter Solomon, The Stardust Mystery
