Using theories and observations from many scientists, this theory has been proven time and again. Despite some flaws, the Big Bang provides a simplistic and logical explanation regarding the origin of the Universe.

The big bang is believed to have started as a tiny volume of space, which suddenly expanded and created all the matter and energy in the universe. It happened more than 10 billion years ago.
Big Bang cosmology, with the addition of inflation, predicted the kind of lumpiness we see in the cosmic background radiation, and an earlier version of big bang cosmology with an added ‘cosmological constant’ predicted we would be living in an accelerated universe.
