Is the theory of the Big Bang just as certain as evolution or abiogenesis?

    Not quite. We can do experiments and gather huge amounts of data to verify the law of evolution, and to investigate the origins of life. The big bang theory relies on the scant data we can gather from the universe. But so far there are no contenders to the BB theory that have good starting odds.

    Evolution is a fact, not a theory. The Big Bang is a theory based on a reverse extrapolation or regression of current observation and measurement. It's a proposal to match repeatable data. Abiogenesis is a name given to a speculation proposal.

    We know life changes over time by genetic change. We manipulate existing life.

    We study the motions of galaxies and extrapolate to an origin and propose an explosive force. Until we can create life from organic materials abiogenesis is only a title.

    The question is whether "We don't know for certain yet" is an acceptable answer.

    Much of the world has trouble with unknown and fear, and don't like it, so things were created to alleviate fear.

    • Very true. It seems plenty of people would rather believe any nonsense that offers an illusion of certainty rather than accept that some things are just unknown.

    There is probably more evidence to back up the theory of evolution than any other theory in biology, if not in all of science. Abiogenesis must have happened, in that we have life on Earth. It had to come from somewhere. Even if you believe that a deity poofed plants and animals into existence, Genesis claims that the first human was made from mud - - abiogenesis. In contrast, the Big Bang is little more than a hypothesis and is likely to retain that status for the foreseeable future.

    Still have to change our laws of physics to account for it.

    Nothing in science is certain.  Only religion has certainty, but it's a false certainty.  Believing in something doesn't make it 'true'.

    No, it’s just a theory.

      theory of gravity will definitely change...i guarantee it...we don't understand gravity at all!!...we never have...same goes with big bang...evolution too...although evolution is more likely...but it still has a few holes in it
