Re: Expanding Pea
Everything was lifeless nothing was moving.
There was no time, no space. Just something not even the size of a pea. This something all by itself started to expand at some point and is still expanding.
I want you to go get in your car put the key in the ignition. Do not turn the key. Do not press a remote start button. I want you to sit in that car until it starts by itself.
This is exactly what you and everyone else is telling me happened with that smaller than a pea thingamajig the universe came from.
No-one has told you that.
Why, then, are you claiming that everyone has told you that?

In other news, the Flat Earth Society has chosen their Flat Earther of the Year.
Giving one another awards won't actually validate their ideas, will it?

Re: Structure scale
Is the Universe like a bowl of whipped cream which has substance throughout.
Or is it like the balloon where the universe is on the outside edge of the balloon with the galaxies like the ants crawling around on the outside.
* sighs *
It's like both of them, depending on which particular aspect of cosmology we're trying to explain by analogy.
