[quote]In order for there to be an observable universe, there must be an observer[/quote]

Why?

In order for there to be an *observed* universe, there must be an observer. `observed` and `observable` don`t have the same meaning.

on top of that, you`re citing the existence of a ratio of distances that is commonly found to occur (and commonly found not to occur as well) as *proof* of the existence of a god. That`s not proof. It`s not even evidence.

@Samsquanch - sorry to break it to you, but that`s not proof of god. It`s a human observation, nothing magical about it, and it can be explained by science in at least some sense.

so when did satan make old dinosaur bones and hide them underground for us to find wayyyy in the future just to confuse us?? i missed that part

oh, and you are all wrong, there isnt an ultrablackhole because the initial density variations (shown in the microwave background) would be the seeds of structure that would grow over time to become the galaxies

...now, on the flip side of the coin. No proof of God?
May I present, The Golden Ratio

Proof that Zeus Almighty is sitting up there lobbing lightning bolts at us, and throwing us into Hades if we`ve been bad? No. Proof that there`s some higher complexity to the order of the universe that we will never in a billion years comprehend? Yes.

God is in physics and math. Complexity, and order that appears to exist with a cause. An intelligent cause? Well, not the way that we conceive of intelligence...but, that would be like amoebas trying to compare their intellect to ours. In order for there to be an observable universe, there must be an observer...and the observable universe existed for 14 by. Ergo, the universe must observe itself in much the same way our conscious thought is perceived by ourselves.

And that, my friend, is why we have the largest and most expensive man-made object ever constructed. The Large Hadron Collider

Hmm, let`s see here. *Checks tsiemens user profile*.

Religion: Christian.
Politics: Conservative.

Ah yes, I think I see what`s happened here. And some people wonder why America is going down the toilet...

A more direct response:
Outward pressure >> Weak gravity

"If the big bang really happened, that would mean all the matter in the universe was in one giant mass. Which would make it an ultra-blackhole. How, then, did anything escape it`s gravitational field?"

To start out, there are four forces of nature (field forces): strong force, weak force, electro-magnetic, and gravity. What is really cool about them is that as temperatures and pressures rise, these forces actually combine and fuse together. If matter-energy is compacted to an extreme limit and temperatures rise to an obscene level, in theory all of these forces will merge into what`s called the unified field and thus at the moment of the big bang gravity itself would not have existed anyway.

Currently we are able to combine three of those four, but unfortunately people are finding it a tad difficult to recreate the conditions of the big bang to mesh the last one (gravity) in.

Billion, not zillion. What`s unpalatable and improbable about that? Just because it`s a longer period of time than a person can intuitively understand, that doesn`t make it improbable. You don`t really intuitively understand much longer than a normal lifespan, certainly not more than centuries.

There is a great deal of evidence supporting the beginning of the universe happening that long ago. There`s a great deal of evidence supporting the universe developing in the way described by the big bang theory. Quite a bit of the evidence for both is accessible without advanced maths or physics.

The evidence for the existence of any particular god is nil. And no, faith is not evidence. That`s ludicrously circular "logic" - faith is evidence because the faith says it is.

@tsiemens - There`s no proof of a god besides stories told by other humans, there is proof of the big bang (though I believe there are other theories about the beginning of the universe, it`s just a more popular one, but don`t quote me on this, I don`t care enough about how the universe began to have researched it). That in itself makes it more probable than a god. Though the two aren`t necessarily separate. There are people who believe a god started the big bang and whatnot.

The physics of a singularity work far different from a black hole. especially since there was no universe around it for gravity to even exist. When it expanded, it created space, and the laws of physics. Essentially we have no idea how it would have behaved or even come to being. But that`s why we`re making theories and studying.

[quote]Divine intervention.
Yeah, that`s right. I went there.[/quote]

Might have been, but "I don`t know, therefore divine intervention" isn`t a compelling argument to anyone who uses thought rather than faith.

Might have been divine intervention (but which divinity?)

Might have been human intervention in some weird time-travelling paradox.

Might have been a natural event which was inevitable under the circumstances.

Might have been something we don`t have the words for.

Nobody knows. Not a clue.

Nobody knows. Ordinary rules wouldn`t necessarily apply and the theory only covers from an instant after the event, once the expansion had already started. For a period of time equivalent to the time it takes to travel a Planck length at c...no clue. Granted, that`s a very small amount of time (billionths of billionths of billionths of a second), but your answer is hidden in there.

@RPGillespie:
Similar idea to @patchgrabber`s:
Pressure. Pressure will blow apart the seemingly inordinately strong.

Firecracker in the palm of your hand will burn. Firecracker in your fist? No more hand.

There will be a point where a supermassive blackhole is just THAT massive, with all the stuff being piled upon and piled upon, that the core of it will be under such pressure it overcomes the outer shell`s ability to hold it in and it simply blows outward with such force that the entire known universe is made in a very few yoctoseconds.

The point of a black hole is to be together. Once separated with this unimaginably huge pressure wave, the black hole itself ceases to exist, as does it`s gravitational field.

Probably another universe was destroyed so we might live from this explosion.

It`s the only theory that would possibly make sense, IMO, and I just made it up now. :)

Rather than a giant mass, it`s compression would have been that of a very small mass, hypothesized to be a millimeter or so I believe. I would surmise that the gravitational field existed only within the singularity itself, since nothing exists outside of that small, dense, hot bit of matter. An unknown energy or force is what caused the Big Bang, which was sufficiently massive in magnitude to expand all matter radiating outwards.

RPGillespie and if we are still inside his gravitation field? Is just a question of size and how much we are able to see the far space, our knowledge about infinite space is like an atom in the middle of an ocean.
