Big bang as a decay process instead of a bang?

    It actually makes no sense as a bang. Its like saying, the grenade exploded and all the shrapnel made a car. The universe would be a hollow sphere if it were a bang. If the initial mass banged all the mass would just keep traveling in the same direction away from the location of the bang with the momentum the mass received from the bang. It has to be a decay or something else that can control the masses momentum. Decaying just like stars do, then the decayed mass/energy (gas, dust, plasma, light, etc..) starts to condense via gravity into other stars/planets/BH's, depending on the quantity, type, momentum, mass/gravity, etc... of decayed mass is what gets created in the region. Momentum/gravitational attracted based collisions can also occur.

    Maybe all the mass/energy in the universe is orbiting the initial coordinate point. We dont notice it because everything we see is in synchronised motion.

    Big Bang has always been a figure of speech. Originally the phrase was used as a term of derision by Fred Hoyle who thought it absurd. Don't get hung up on "bang".

    Bingo! The BB in actual fact was the evolution of space and time in the first instant, [henceforth known as spacetime] as we know them/it, from a period of t+ 10-43 seconds.

    It wasn't a bang? what is it then that caused the matter to leave the initial blob or maybe make the blob expand?

    No one knows. All that the data indicates is that it is most consistent with an initial rapid expansion, from something close to, or even actually, a mathematical singularity or point.

    Some cosmologists speculate about the cause, but really this is just metaphysics as there is no data on which to base any hypothesis.
