Abstract

Most cosmologists claim that the MBR supports the BB theory. But, does it really? All we know for sure about the MBR is that its temperature is 2.7 degrees Kelvin and its wavelength is about 2 millimeters. However, at the same time we know nothing for sure about the BB. The universe is theorized to have started out as a singularity about 13.7 billion years ago and then to have briefly expanded at different speeds before settling down to just one of them for the long haul of growing out to today's size. There doesn't appear to be any connection between what we know about the MBR and what we theorize about the BB. But cosmologists have also done some theorizing about the former. I bring that up in this paper and in closing show how it turns out to be very flawed theorizing when you apply what Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg writes about the early universe in his book, "The First Three Minutes".
