The Creation Of The Universe: Where Did The "Big Bang" Come From? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   The Big Bang, the theory that the universe was created by the explosion of an immensely dense basketball-sized object, is the most accepted of all the creation theories circulating in the scientific world today. The one problem with this theory is why would this seemingly innocent basketball-sized object explode and create the universe? My take on the whole thing? It's simple. Imagine if you will, you are standing at the furthest reaches of the universe somewhere between seven and 20 billion years ago. (I know, you couldn't stand in space, but please, bear with me.) Suddenly an immense explosion takes place and the universe is born. But how did this explosion happen? Well, let's back up for a second. If an object the size of a basketball were to explode and create the universe, it would have to be incredibly, unbelievably dense. And the denser something is, the more gravity it has. So this is what I believe happened. There was not one, but TWO of these objects, lying hundreds of billions, possibly trillions of light years apart, each with a gravitational field millions of times more powerful than that of the largest known black holes. They sat about, spewing gravity until one attracted the other, and vice versa. Suddenly, these small objects began to pick up speed and over billions of years, they were traveling at possibly thousands of times the speed of light. Then, all at once, these two hugely dense and incredibly fast objects collided with such force that the universe was born.

At least that's my theory. And it's pretty good, mostly because it is the only theory of what caused the big bang that I have heard as of yet. The scientific world may scoff and dismiss my theory, but hey, got any better ideas? u
