The Big Bang

The big bang was not an explosion. It was the rapid expansion of space itself, smoothly and faster than the speed of light. It happened everywhere, even the spot where your heart is now. The expansion of the space of the universe continues to this day, even at the spot where your heart is now. We know this by looking at the microwave background radiation from the dawn of time, by examining the Doppler shift of light from distant galaxies and from the abundance of helium and other light elements that only could have been created in the super heat of the big bang.
