That's covered by Murphy's law

@timur,
Tim I'd be inclined to disagree but only to the extent that Murphy's is a corollary of Dale's

There are several books that more or less refute the BB Theory.

Search Amazon for " The Big Bang Never Happened"

There are several books listed on the page by variously qualified persons sounding the horn for various types of universes.

Absolute knowledge is reserved for the religious, perhaps sadly so!

@akaMechsmith,

Thank you Mech for that link

However I can't see how its occurrence or non-would bear on the basic q. Supposing each successive BB is a new start with differing results, there still exists the chance of repetition except fewer in each instance and separated by greater spans of time

Since in an infinite universe there would also be an infinite number of differing possibilities the chances of this one coming around again are pretty slim. We probably will never have this conversation again. But it's possible!

@akaMechsmith,
Mech you have reflected exactly my basic q, does the prop have any mathematical basis

Infinity after all is pretty big
