I see no evidence that I have resorted to petty name calling in criticising your attitude towards BB theory, I have merely articulated my observations.
BB theory, whether you like it or agree with it not, is the accepted Standard Cosmology.There are more scientific institutions and individuals currently reasearching the field than the sum total since the invention of the telescope.Within this huge body of study, there are only a handful who refute the basic model.
Ongoing research strengthens the validity of the theory (hence the Nobel awards) in much the same way that Evolution theory is continually bolstered by new evidence and discoveries.
The requirement of absolute proof in these areas is a measure of your pedanticism.The analogy of BB theory to 'Flat earth-ers' at best makes you narrow-minded and at worst makes you appear poorly informed and ignorant.
To argue against the consensus is of course a valid challenge in any scientific field and is to be welcomed, but such challenges risk being discounted as poorly informed trivial rants when accompanied by such statements as '..BIG BANG'ERS ARE FLAT EARTH'ERS !'
