Re: Pull
I am not a cosmologist. After reading this thread though, I think I understand the very basics of this. Maybe I can dumb it down enough for him and me.

If there is no force then you should be able to explain how you can get all that energy (mass) in something the size of a pea without having to squeeze it down to fit.
Where else could that energy be?
This is the real point everyone's been trying to make, I think. The entire "universe" at T=0 was the size of the pea. There was nothing outside of this pea. There was no where else for the "stuff" inside to go, because there was no "outside." No force was necessary to hold the "stuff" inside the universe then, just as no force is required to hold you inside the universe now.

But there is such an origin story. It just happened. Proof, we are here.
Freudian Slip! He meant to say "poof," but he said "proof." It kind of changes the entire meaning of what he was trying to say, doesn't it?
Scientific "belief" does follow the "proof," as he wrote, not the "poof," as he meant to write. And, seeing as there isn't yet any "proof" of anything, we therefore do not have a belief on the issue.
Actually, the Creationist belief is more akin to the "poof" he's talking about: I have long referred to it as the "Big Poof Theory" because it states very clearly that there is no mechanism for the Creation of the universe (at least, not one we puny, mortal humans could ever understand).
