The Big Misconception

“It is very important that we do not accept any narrative without verifying for ourselves and forming our own opinions, because to live in such a way is a contribution to our own cognitive dissonance; certainly in terms of how we live with and justify ourselves while living in conflict with our beliefs.” – Xssy Alex

A misconception is the view or opinion that is incorrectly formed and based on faulty thinking or understanding, and a good example is the Big Bang Theory; it is the universally accepted scientific academia explanation for how the Universe came into existence.  It is just a theory and there is no concrete evidence to support this theory other than testimonies of more theories contributed by carefully selected members of the scientific community. When you collate all these theories, label and categorize them, we are left with one big scientific argument that is termed as evidence regardless of whether it actually is evidence or not. This is just the way of the world, that history is decided by the victor, and the victor in the scientific community is the one who can use their academic standing to create a theory that not only sounds believable but can only be legitimately challenged and accepted by others in the same community.

The world as we know it is irrelevant to the haughtiness of the scientific community whose ultimate aim seeks to be rewarded the creator of the next big discovery and innocently accepted by those not in the academic community; a double-standard and dangerous and fraudulent consideration – since it leaves a legacy that raises great awareness and documents in history theoretical speculation based on ideas that remain really rather illogical, under-developed, and lacking in reason and objectivity. Certainly in the case of the Big Bang Theory, this is a matter of conjecture – opinions or conclusions formed on the basis of incomplete information; and therefore, in my opinion, the Big Bang theory is not something that I would take seriously – since the evidence is too weak or too remote to cause belief. So in terms of how the world was started I have two options – to complete a possibly never-ending learning cycle reaching theories upon more theories but never forming any concrete conclusions as I seek to prove the non-existence of God, or option two being: go with my gut – something tangible that I have always relied upon. My Gut,  also known as the red alert system or what the Christian Bible describes as the Holy Spirit living within me; mine is telling me that where there is a creation there is a creator. That, for me, is the only logical conclusion. Having said that, we are all entitled to find our own logical conclusion, I respect your right to find yours.

It should be a concern to every educator that the scientific community seeks to work a strategy that excludes contributors who seek to challenge the exclusive and illogical history this community has created for itself.  There is an acute naivety in how the chief agenda is to disprove that any one person or persons, can be behind the creating of a Universe while this same community advises the world that the scientific community deal in what they can prove; yet in reality, everything about the Human being is founded upon the very – already proven – facts this community appear to ignore – that if there is a creation there must be a creator. The same state of being can be translated for design, if there is a design then there absolutely must be a designer. It is diabolical logic in deliberately disputing the natural way the world works, the same system that we, as Humans, live and work by every day and have done so since the beginning of time –we dare to dump logic and reason in favour of storybook theories that go largely unchallenged because we – as a society, are poised to believe that academics have all the answers. In my opinion, when we ignore the natural instinct to challenge we revert to a preliterate stage of existence that contributes to a human-development decline that takes us back to a primitive stage of being. This same decline is what is responsible for our cognitive dissonance.

The scientific community as a collective appear to exist to argue the non-existence of God. There are scientists that believe in God, of course, but these scientists are not the exclusively and carefully selected in the field to champion the cause of science; and this is exactly why I would advise and empower everyone to always do their own research. Research is what will expose the ignorance, the unfairness and the inequality within the scientific community and open our eyes and ears to those scientists that are bravely demonstrating to the world opinions based on reality and not outrageous ideas. These fictional fact-sliders in the scientific community are indeed – in general, what I would call – villains of literature.


In July 2013, The World Factbook recorded the Human population as 7,095,217,980 and the distribution of religions as Christian 31.50% (of which Roman Catholic 16.85%, Protestant 6.15%, Orthodox 3.96%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 23.20% (of which Sunni 75-90%, Shia10-20%, Ahmadi 1%), Hindu 13.8%, Buddhist 6.77%, Sikh 0.35%, Jewish 0.22%, Baha’i 0.11%, other religions 10.95%, non-religious 9.66%, atheists 2.01% (2010 est.), but in a world where those believing in God outnumber those who don’t, according to Stephen Hawking, a British Physicist, and Cosmologist, in his narrative, The Beginning of Time, many people were unhappy with the idea that the Universe had a beginning, because it seemed to imply the existence of a supernatural being who created the Universe. Hawking attempts to deceive his audience by refusing to acknowledge true facts or relevant data. And again in his narrative, The Origin of The Universe, Hawking explicitly presented his audience with the myth of the Boshongo people. {It is in fact the myth of the Bushongo people but Hawking does inform his audience that there may be incorrect spellings, punctuation and/or grammar to allow correct pronunciation and timing by a speech-synthesiser.}


“According to the Boshongo people of central Africa, in the beginning, there was only darkness, water, and the great god Bumba. One day Bumba, in pain from a stomach ache, vomited up the sun. The sun dried up some of the water, leaving land. Still in pain, Bumba vomited up the moon, the stars, and then some animals. The leopard, the crocodile, the turtle, and finally, man.” – Stephen Hawking, The Origin of the Universe.

Hawking prefers to use the mythical example to present his summarisation rather than a popular, factual, or accepted example such as a real world religion or belief, and there are plenty of which to choose from. In my view this renders Hawking’s suppositions unethical, irrational, and not to be relied upon. In The Origin of the Universe, Hawking also stated:

“According to Bishop Usher, the Book of Genesis placed the creation of the world at 9 in the morning on October the 27th, 4,004 BC.” – Stephen Hawking, The Origin of the Universe.

It is a fact that the Book of Genesis does not claim any date or time in relation to the creation of the world, so one can only presume Hawking has a desire to present religion as a crazy concept or a mad myth when standing against the ‘scientific theory’ of how the Universe was created. Therefore I must personally refute the unethical claims made by Professor Stephen Hawking. Furthermore,  I believe that all data presented to the world that does not include the fair representation of the creationist view is invalid and an unlawful gross misrepresentation of facts. The academic community have been negligent and blinded by a pursuit of power and celebrity; such values should have no place in the field of education, and should therefore be devalued and/or reformed.
