One singularity? You've got to be kidding. How about trillions and trillions and trillions of singularities. And I can hear all those voices out there shouting 'Contradiction in terms'. - but wait, impatience will get you nowhere! Here is a Better Big Bang - called BBB for short.
Once upon a time, for every cubic centimetre of space there were more or less one million singularities, and they all looked just the same. They had a very special problem, and that is they were repulsive. - Now don't get me wrong because I don't mean in an offensive way; it's just that they repelled each other. (I'm calling them singularities because they are/were the smallest indivisible particle).
