The Big Bang idea is bad physics and bad theology rolled into a package. Having all the mass of the universe collapsed to a point would be the mother of all black holes, nothing would ever "bang" its way out of that.
Likewise for a supposedly omniscient and omnipotent God to suddenly, at some specific point in time, decide it would be a cool thing to do to create a universe whereas the idea had never occurred to him prior to that moment, is basically idiotic and it doesn't even matter whether the moment in time was 6000 or 17 billion years ago.
That's before you even get to Halton Arp and the question of demonstrating high and low redshift objects which are clearly part and parcel of the same things. That annihilated the basis for an expanding universe along it the need for any sort of a big bang theory.
Big Bang is junk science, nearly as bad as evolution itself.
A couple of Arp's examples:
Also, the Idea that there could be such a thing as an "exception which proves the rule" is basically an ignorant misuse of language. The original version of that statement was Latin for "an exception probes (or calls into question) the rule"; this is the familiar concept from mathematics that a single counterexample suffices to disprove a rule or, more properly, a thesis which somebody had proposed for consideration as a rule.
