Image via WikipediaStephen Hawking's Two Big Buckets Of Nothing:
You take a bucket of negatively charged energy, a bucket of positively charged energy, mix them together, and, oh, baby -- you've got yourself... one big bucket of nothing!
Then, you swirl this one big bucket of nothing around and... BANG!
Postscript. If the bucket is really, really, big, you get a BIG Bang.
Q. "Dr. Hawking, what if the buckets had been smaller?".
A. "We would have been tiny."
Someone remind me how this is an improvement on the big turtle creation myth?
