One cannot refuse to acknowledge what has not been presented.

So by all means, I'm all ears. I shall ask you the same question that I've had no answer for for 7 years:

What exactly IS the "scientific theory" of IDC?

I thank you in advance for not answering.

Don't worry though. Even the mooks who made it up haven't been able to answer it either. In fact they also admitted they don't have one.

Not an "explosion", but an expansion of space-time. Keep in mind the words you ascribe to Einstein here are subjective. Also keep in mind that even Einstein could be wrong, such as his ideas about a steady-state universe.
By the way, if the universe was "comprehensible", then how come that no-one on the planet knows for definite how it started?
All I did was point out that at LEAST up until the point of singularity, the Big Bang is the ONLY scientific theory that makes successful scientific predictions based upon observable phenomena, such as predicting background radiation levels at approx 3 parts per million.
In fact when I say it's the only scientific theory that makes such predictions, not only that, it's the only theory in town.
I ain't seen YOU come up with anything better.(shrug)
And considering your extreme lack of education it's extremely likely that you ever will.
Ahh! the typical puddle gooist defense mechanism, when you lack the faith in the goo you lack education, yet the puddle gooists themselves have only a vague, unprovable theory of lifes beginnings....{ without testable hypotheses and repeatable results all you have is personal opinion, not actual knowledge}..

Damn! your lack of understandable knowledge concerning science renders you incapable of an informed opinon on the subject. Ergo you are a dumbass blinded by a zealous faith in nothing.

In fact we've pointed this out to you months ago.

If science is mere "religious ideology" then stop taking medicine, stop using your computer, stop going to the shops, using your car, anything. Go back to living in the woods and go hunt for your own chickens.

Actually there are more than two ways. Here's some more:
1 - The universe has always been here in some form or another.
2 - The universe manifested itself by NON-magical means.
3 - The universe manifested itself by a CONCEIVABLE intelligent agent, such as (a) God or Gods.
Rather amusing that in one post you're claiming that there's conceivable scientific evidence for the intelligent creation of the universe and in the very next post you're arguing that it's INconceivable.
If it's INconceivable then you have no case. Because you cannot conceive of it. QED.
In my humble opinion? If such an entity exists, this thing creates entire universes in its spare time as a hobby. There is NO WAY humans are gonna have a hope in hell of comprehending such an entity.
Fundamentalist ego presumes otherwise. And not only that, but that said entity made the entire thing just for them.
Whoooowaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
1 There has been evidence of the universes beginning, shattering the 19th century thought of an eternal universe.
2.There is zero evidence , ZERO, of the universe coming into being on its own, only the zealous puddle religionists believe that.
3. An intelligent agent causing the universe fits with # 1, and agrees with #2 that things need a cause.

As for you not believeing it , you puddle gooists have a favorite line ,...your incredulity is not an arguement.

Nature has a movement with uniform and patterned recurrence of a beat, accent, or the like, and the organization of this is in particular kinds of systematic forms which are brought about by a series of events that are regularly repeated in the same order. SCP theory explains this.

I've thought about that.
But then I thought,
just because someone made up the story about the flying spaghetti monster doesn't mean that there isn't a flying spaghetti monster.

When Sarah Josepha Hale wrote Mary Had a Little Lamb, she made the story up out of thin air. However, when her poem got published, she received numerous letters from women named Mary, and who had childhood memories of pet lambs following them to school, just as the fictional Mary's lamb followed her to school.

So maybe there really is a flying spaghetti monster which Bobby Henderson doesn't know about.

So just because it got Herod right doesn't mean that other parts have not been falsified. Even the priesthood have known this for nearly 400 years.
Amazing how accurate "prophecy" is - as long as it's in the "prophet's" past.

"God is the Master Scientist Who keeps His theories to Himself."

God the Physicist:
We published a previous article on this internet site which suggested that the physicist’s unseen Higgs Field was the same as our proposed undetected God Field. The Higgs field is essential to the structure of matter and in turn to life itself. Our thoughts were that at the time of the big bang, only God existed as unique Light Energy particles. We further suggested that these special resting Light Energy particles acted like a reverse black hole and contained the darkness and all the gaseous ingredients necessary to kick start our universe 14 billion years ago. At a time of God’s choosing, He caused or became the big bang, and today God’s Light Energy represents more than one billion quadrillion of these special particles. God’s energy particles are still geometrically increasing as our universe perpetually expands.

God the Microbiologist:
While the universe is approximately 14 billion years old, our earth did not form until 4.5 billion years ago and we did not see the first fossilized microorganisms until 3.8 billion years ago. But where did these bacteria come from? If you examine the scientific studies on the Origin of Life, you discover that scientists cannot tell you how life initially began, just like they cannot tell you what happened during those Divine moments before the big bang. Bacteria and other advanced life forms have DNA but you can’t make DNA without enzyme proteins and you can’t make enzyme proteins without DNA. It’s the chicken and egg hypothesis where you don’t know which came first. No scientist in any laboratory has found a way to create macromolecules of DNA or enzyme proteins. So how did these fossilized microorganisms appear 3.8 billion years ago? Francis Crick the Nobel Laureate, who with James Watson solved the double helix structure of DNA, proposed that aliens on UFO spaceships brought these microorganisms to earth 3.8 billion years ago.

Zero evidence is just admitting humans are clueless. Nothing to do with understanding, its unable to cope with not knowing about the world around them.So, no evigence is just the primitive human animal guessing or theorizing about their existence. And, most of the info in text or on the net they believe as true......Why not ask yourself, think for yourself, is that really true or just BS on a global scale.

Experience is the nectar of life. 2000 years ago humans thought the world was flat. Who made God? Today, they know there are to many galaxies to count, what will they know tomorrow. Deep space exploration holds the key to understanding human existence. The Bible story and evolution will be explained away by critical thinking, not by praying or bone collecting. We are on the edge of the truth. Most humans will never accept the truth. The "God seed" was planted or the bones/monkey DNA wont let the truth enter their gray matter. Logic will prevail. Humans think they cant be tricked......really?
