Georges LeMaître was a catholic jesuit priest and mathematician. He found 1927 that Einsteins theory of relativity could be signs of a expanding Universe . He made calculation with these a wrote a report with the title
I will dedicate this page to what we know today about the expansion of the Universe, the so called Big Bang to answer Willy Kinberg question
“Did God create the World from nothing?”
- Before Singularity
- World from Nothing?
- String theory
- Unified force
Has Gott die Welt aus dem Nichts geschaffen?
Did God create the World from nothing?
was the first question Willy asked in his book published 1906.
Hubble found proof that the theory of LeMaître expanding Universe was correct with observations of galaxies redshift in telescopes. Arthur Eddington confirmed that Lemaïtre mathematical solution was brilliant in 1931.
LeMaître asked himself. Were did all galaxies come from? Later the same year 1931, he presented his hypothesis that all galaxies came from a initial point. He called it a primeval atom or cosmic egg. (1) Although Eddington fully accepted the Expanding Universe theory, the idea of a initial point and cosmic egg was “repugnant” for him (1)
Einstein who believed that the Universe was static and always existed were wrong.
Einstein said about Georges leMaître
“Your math is correct, but your physics is abominable”. (1)

1949 LeMaître theory of a cosmic egg and expansion of Universe got the name of Big Bang by Fred Hoyle. They joked about it saying “So there was a Big Bang? hahaha” Le Maitre never talked about a Bang.
physicians fully accepts the idea of a primeval atom calling it it Singularity as Astronomer Penxlas and Wilson (2) found the radiation from the very first state of the Universe, called today Big Bang CMB-radiation. See image 25 in this slide at:

We know today that Singularity expanded and within it, huge amounts of energy matherialized in atoms, mainly hydrogen atoms.
Hoyle develope the theory of nucleogenesis, the creation of atoms.
Here are a few images of a expanding Universe.
Nucleosynthesis, particle evolution, the creation and assembling of proton and neutron particles into atom nuclei a theory developed by Fred Hoyle, (OBSA: Hoyle rejected the Big Bang Theory) and how atom nuclei formed bigger atom nuclei, helium, Iron atoms in stars, Uranium atoms in SuperNovas.
It tells btw how Hydrogen nuclei melted together and formed Helium nuclei and other atoms in the Periodic Table.
You get a very good explanation of Big bang by Neil de Grasse Tyson in this video
Gravitation and space
Before finding answer tothe issue “What is the form of space it is important to know about the gravitation impact on space . For Newton gravitation was a force. Einstein said in the words of one of his disciples
- “Mass tells space how to curve”
- “Space tells mass how to move”
(Neil de grasse Tyson in “Neil Degrasse Tyson on Einstein” on Youtube ) This video illustrate this well.
This year in February gravitation waves were detected on Earth something Einstein predicted in 1918 in one of his works.
The form of space.
one think of Universe as a balloon expanding. But the form of Universe is not that what we think or see. The galaxies are not were we see them as the light from these doesn’t come to us in straight line. Fotons trip in space is diverted by the gravitation of blackholes, galaxies etc.
According to Physics there were only one force at the very beginning, called Unified force. (4 and 5) Cern is asking “Will we see a unification of forces at the high energies of the Large Hadron Collider?” (6)
LeMaître never answered this question publicly. The question could now be formulated like this.
Physisist are trying to answer this question finding a
We talk today about a Unified theory of Physics.
“The unified theory is divided into five parts: the spaceobject
structures, cosmology, the periodic table of elementary particles, the
galaxy formation, and the extreme force field.” (Read more 8)
We now have String Theory that may answer the Willys question.
- When two Universes collide a new Universe is created
- When a Universe splits, 2 new Universes are created.

I worked with this google drive slide with my sixth grade pupils.
As you can understand despite the Swedish, I started telling them about the curriculum in chemistry and what atoms are as it is important to understand that to understand the evolution of particles.
