Our current understanding of the what the conditions immediately after the initial expansion of the universe were like supports the idea that it was comprised of energy, not matter. The heat was such that any matter would have been converted into energy. Only with the cooling brought about by the expansion of space time did matter start to form. [quote] You cannot possibly know this. The expansion may be infinite, but it may be finite. Stating that it is infinite is a statement of faith, not a statement of science. [/quote] Where did I say that I know this? It is merely a postulation based on the observable evidence. We can see the universe expanding. We also know at present that there isn't enough observable matter in the universe to keep not continuing to do so. So with our current understanding supported by the evidence we know at the moment is nothing that we know of that will not keep it from continuing to expand. I was merely basing my commenting our current understanding of the universe. It is a statement based on assumption, not of faith. Statements of faith are based on wishes and hopes. [/quote]
