Revised theory of gravity doesn't predict a Big Bang
Revised theory of gravity doesn't predict a Big Bang: "In their analysis, the scientists found that a key characteristic of Eddington’s revised theory of gravity is that it reproduces Einstein gravity precisely in the vacuum conditions (with no matter), but it produces new effects when matter is added. Due to this characteristic, the revised theory has implications especially for high-density regions, such as in the very early Universe or within a black hole. For instance, the theory predicts a maximum density of homogeneous and isotropic space-time, which could have implications for black hole formation... More intriguingly, the theory could lead to an entirely new view of the Universe that doesn't include a Big Bang."
