The devas gods were born later than this world's creation, so who knows from where it came into existence? The author notes that if all the atoms in the Universe, as known in Gamow's time, were such printing presses working in parallel "at the speed of atomic vibrations" since the beginning of known timeonly an infinitesimal fraction of the job could have yet been completed.

The origin of the chemical elements; Gravity caused the hydrogen to collapse inward, forming structures. Mainstream cosmologists maintain that the standard picture is supported by interconnected observations and it is not time for a radical alternative like Narlikar and Burbidge's 'quasi-steady state theory'.

Using General Relativity to lay the framework, Hubble measured other galaxies and determined that they were rushing away from the us, leading him to conclude that the universe was not static but expanding.
