    Default brown dwarf and main sequence undermines big bang theory/age of universe



    one guy from youtube said that Brown dwarf stars take a lot longer than 14B years to move through the Main Sequence!

    Is this true? Im only basic about cosmology because i am a business student.
    Please explain simply and non-biased(non religious people making pseudo scientific claims to make me lose trust in science)

    I really think that big bang theory is true. please tell me its true...

    sigh, i dont wanna lose faith in science even if its empirical

    i searched up brown dwarfs and big bang in google and it came up with

    this!!!!!! are u kidding me?
    plz explain

    Hi and welcome to the forums..
    The big bang is the best theory around to best explain what we see around us from this little planet. It is a theory and it is always been tested by new discoveries in science each day. Some confirm the theory and some can undermine aspects of it.

    You did not read what I posted-- brown dwarfs are FAILED stars -- there are probably more brown dwarfs and even cooler stars, than regular main sequence stars.

    Just not enough MASS to fully ignite. It has nothing to do with proving or disproving the Big Bang.

    If we could prove the Big Bang wrong and everyone stopped believing in it, that would not lesson faith in science, but increase it. The ability to hold loosely to scientific theory and discard disproved theories is what science is all about. To hold on to any scientific theory in the light of contrary evidence is to make science faith based.

    I recently posted a question about the Big Bang theory. In my mind I couldn't reconcile the increasing speed of universe expansion with current Big Bang theory. The post became an interesting discussion thread. You just posted another question about the Big Bang.

    Today I received May's edition of ASTRONOMY magazine. On page 80 "The Cosmic Grid" I saw the following comment. "Roger Penrose of Oxford University uses circular patterns in the cosmic microwave background as evidence that the universe didn't begin with the big bang, proving once again that cosmology is the trippiest science." I haven't had time to look it up, but it sounded interesting.

    Science holds onto theories until they are proven, disproved, or a better theory comes along. There could be many things we hold onto today that we will one day discover were incorrect. The Big Bang theory is the most widely accepted theory today, therefore most people believe it to be true, but who really knows what evidence will be discovered tomorrow?
