Analogy of the Big Bang theory to biological evolution.

Many insights can be gained from the comparison:

1. Evolution begins with a primordial soup; the Big Bang begins with a particle soup.

2. Evolution has missing links; the Big Bang has missing mass.

3. Evolution has no explanation for the origin of life; the Big Bang has no explanation for the origin of matter.

4. In evolution, life started abruptly; in the Big Bang, the universe came into being abruptly.

5. Evolution has asymmetry in proteins; the Big Bang has asymmetry in antimatter.

6. Evolution has an uncomfortably early appearance of the first life; the Big Bang has an uncomfortably early appearance of stars and galaxies.

7. Evolution has a Cambrian explosion; the Big Bang has a structure explosion.

8. Evolution has punctuated equilibria; the Big Bang has quantized redshifts.

9. Evolution has out-of-order fossils; the Big Bang has out-of-order stars, and clusters “older” than the universe.

And that doesn't make sense, how?


2. Evolution has missing links; the Big Bang has missing mass.

The problem with missing links is this:

Take two fossils for example --> A and C.

You have no link between the two. Say you find B to link the two.

You now have A B C.

Someone could now say you have not one, but TWO, missing links. The link between A nd B, and the link between B and C.

You see where I am going with this?

We have a detailed fossil record (though not complete by any means), but for every new fossil comes the requirement for a new link between the new fossil and the old.



3. Evolution has no explanation for the origin of life; the Big Bang has no explanation for the origin of matter.

Thats because evolution doesn't explain the origin of life. That's abiogenesis.
The theory of gravitational pull doesn't explain nuclear fusion, would you say that nucluar fusion doesn't exist becuase some completely different theory doesn't mention it?



4. In evolution, life started abruptly; in the Big Bang, the universe came into being abruptly.

Evolution doesn't explain the origin of life. That's abiogenesis.


5. Evolution has asymmetry in proteins; the Big Bang has asymmetry in antimatter.

How are the two related, and how could a relation between them be relevant?


6. Evolution has an uncomfortably early appearance of the first life; the Big Bang has an uncomfortably early appearance of stars and galaxies.

What do you mean by uncomfortable?


7. Evolution has a Cambrian explosion; the Big Bang has a structure explosion.

How are the two related, and how could a relation between them be relevant?


8. Evolution has punctuated equilibria; the Big Bang has quantized redshifts.

How are the two related, and how could a relation between them be relevant?


9. Evolution has out-of-order fossils; the Big Bang has out-of-order stars, and clusters “older” than the universe.


Could you describe the out-of-order fossils? We don't see man in the Jurassic period. I suppose that would be out-of-order if I understand you correctly.

bob b,

You could have at least given credit to Jim Sweitzer for the list. (http://creationsafaris.com/crev1102.htm)

Also, I'm curious as to why you left number ten out of your post:


Both are contrary to the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

Do even you agree that this one is obsolete? :noway:

lol. Comparing apples and oranges is pointless anyway - so the 2 law of t might as well have been included anyway.
