“In the beginning, nearly 14 billion years ago, all the space and all the matter and all the energy of the known universe was contained in a volume less than one trillionth the size of the period that ends this sentence.”

— Neil deGrasse Tyson in Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, opening p‘graph

Unsure? Test Tyson’s tale.

Try crushing a rock in one hand until it’s smaller than it is.

It should be easy; 99.99% of the rock is empty of matter.

Why doesn’t it crush?

Thank you Michael. I can't think of a better place for this conversation to RIP.

Bert, if you think I will let this conversation RIP you haven’t been paying attention. I don’t want you replacing the Catholic faith with the Big Bang faith.
