I was thinking about the Big Bang theory and the theory of probability. I have read about the leading theories discussing what happened in the first few miliseconds of the Big Bang. The article I read theorized that a "patch" of repulsive gravity 1 billionth the size of proton. The article stated that was just a random event. If it would take a billion of these patches to fill up the same space as a proton, then how many would it take fill up the entire known universe? Now if you were to multiply that number with the number of times it could have happened in the past 14.5 billion years, what are the odds of the big bang happening just once?
