The Time Paradox of the Big Bang Theory

This theory proposes that it is possible that the Terran Solar System is older than the center of the universe. Applying the idea of a universe that expanded to what it is now from the Big Bang Theory and the idea that time moves more slowly with larger amounts of gravity from the Theory of Relativity allows this theory to hold true. In this paper, the term “center of the universe” will be the location of the beginning of the universe. According to our knowledge, the universe is infinite, thus making every point in the universe the center. However, for purposes of this argument, “center of the universe” will apply to the point of origin of the universe.

First assume that the universe began according to the big bang theory and it is still expanding. Also, assume that our galaxy is not near the center of the universe from where which the big bang started, but rather it is on an outer edge. Thus, this establishes the basis of the theory as that the Milky Way galaxy is moving away from the center of the universe but is not at the center.

According to the Theory of Relativity, the more mass an area has, the slower time moves. Following up this theory, the Big Bang Theory states that matter accelerated outwards, causing the universe to expand. The theory branches off to say that the expansion of the universe could still be accelerating or its acceleration could be slowing. Whether the universe is expanding fast or slow is irrelevant. It is also irrelevant whether the universe is still expanding or it is now collapsing. The basis of this theory is that the universe expanded in the beginning, causing matter to spread from the center at an accelerated rate. Matter expanding from a central core, even if it explodes, leaves a large amount of matter in the center. Matter which remains in the center insures the possibility of mass recollecting. When celestial bodies collect matter their gravity increases. This would imply that the center of the universe has more gravity than the edge of the universe because the center has more mass than the edge.

Because our galaxy, specifically our solar system, has less gravity than the center of the universe, time is passing faster on Earth than at the center of the universe. This assumption holds true according to the Theory of Relativity. Now, if time is passing faster on Earth than at the center of the universe, then the center of the universe is younger than the Earth.
