IV. Three pre-Big Bang models
Since the Big Bang has not been proven to be the beginning of the universe, some physicists have postulated some models of a pre-Big-Bang era with the potential for infinite duration (which could avert the need for a beginning and a creation). Three wellknown models are:
• An infinitely bouncing universe
• An eternally inflating multiverse; and
• An eternal universe in higher dimensional space (superstring theory).
There is substantial evidence to indicate the need for a beginning in each of these three hypothetical pre-Big- Bang models (as well as other possible pre-Big Bang models). This evidence for a beginning of the universe (or any multiverse in which it may be situated) will be given in two parts: three pieces of evidence from the law of entropy (Section V) and three pieces of evidence from space-time geometry (Section VI).
