I'm not an expert on social media, but this thread has jumped the sharknado.

It's fascinating how people with absolutely no understanding of a scientific field can confidently declare their own theories that the entire profession has just missed or got wrong.
Declaring your own hypothesis can be okay as long as you can make a good case for it. The problem is the OP clearly doesn't understand what the so-called "Big Bang Theory" actually says. To wit:

Perhaps prior to the Big Bang there was a tremendous amount of energy released somewhere else in the Universe
Time isn't defined before the Big Bang, so there was no "prior". Space wasn't defined before the Big Bang, so there was no "elsewhere". Until you understand that, you'll just be spouting gibberish.

Or, it's fine to have your own theory. Just explain it -- but don't keep referring to the existing "Big Bang Theory" which is incompatible.

But what kind of heat would it have been? Possibly Dark Matter or Dark Energy produced heat.
It's not the heat. It's the humidity.

This thread is the sharknado. I'm waiting for the OP to bite my head off.
