Formation of the universe

The universe formed about 13.5 billion years ago, when a singularity became unstable.
Internal pressure and centrifugal force overcame gravity, and the singularity collapsed... and expanded.
Over time the energy of the expansion cooled sufficiently to allow matter to form. This matter was sub-atomic particles.
The universe continued to expand, and to cool, allowing these particles to form neutrons, electrons, and protons.
These in turn bonded to form atoms.
These atoms clumped into dense clouds of hydrogen, which gained mass until they became hot enough to start a chain reaction. This was the birth of the first stars. These stars created the heavier atoms via atomic fusion... and via supernova explosions.

And still more of the basics of Big Bang cosmology

Its not some random person making things up.
Its observations and calculations by people in many countries, leading to conclusions that can be tested against other observations.

Insult???? It was you who called me a troll.
Stop trolling.
Astronomer and astro-physicist, Father Georges LeMaitre, was an ordained christian priest when he developed the expanding universe, or "Big Bang", cosmology.
He based his work on the observations of Edwin Hubble. And the calculations of Albert Einstein
He was not alone. Unknown to him, mathematician Alexander Friedmann had arrived at the same conclusions.
Both LeMaitre and Friedmann predicted that a cosmic background radiation should be detectable as a remnant of the original expansion.

George Gamow took their work, and expanded upon it in the 1940s and '50s. He predicted that the cosmic background radiation would be in the extreme microwave spectrum.

In 1964, Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson discovered the Cosmic Background Radiation predicted by LeMaitre and Friedmann, in the spectrum predicted by Gamow.

Yada, yada, yada.

Why do you insult the video by calling it crap? What point did you have in mind?
Because I don't insult it.
If anything I am being more gentle than I should be. But CARM is after all, a PG 13 site.

Humphreys is a con man. A liar who has been discredited for decades.
He has been exposed more times than a porn star's bottom.
The only people who take him seriously are die-hard creationists who refuse to learn basic cosmology

How the universe formed.
An old vid, but still valid.
Alas the volume is not great.
Great topic! There is an interesting correlation between astronomy and the myths in religion that few recognize. For instance, the mythical Christ and his 12 apostles correlate with the cosmos. So it is likely that the authors of the gospels were describing Christ as the sum of the cosmos when they wrote their myths. How so?

First, the heavens were divided into 12 signs or houses which are dependent on the rotational movement of Earth on its axis. We know it as the zodiac which comes with all kinds of connotations. But at its essence the zodiac contains the twelve divisions of the cosmos from earth's perspective. The sum of the zodiac is the singularity from which it sprung. The first century Christians knew this since the Babylonians (magi from the East) had been teaching it for hundreds of years.

Along comes gnostic Christians, (Hermeticism, Qabalah, magi, etc.), for example, Paul who teaches that Christ is the sum of all things (Ephesians 1:10). So when Paul dies and his followers want to canonize his teachings but in a mythical story for initiates, they write about the Christ and his 12 followers, who are also called the "foundation" of the church. Hmmm... The "foundation" upon which the mythical Christ in the Gospels builds his church happens to correlate with the astrologic signs which sum up the cosmos. Simply, the cosmos is the foundation upon which the single (-ularity) Christ produces his church. Therefore, it makes sense that the cosmic Christ in Paul's teaching was written as a mythical story in the Gospels. Cool beans! By the way, it also correlates with the twelve olympians of the Greek pantheon.
