In theory, if the big bang was equal in all directions at the same instance, how come some solar systems are millions of light years away whilst we still seem to be crawling through space. One finds it odd that ALL the stars and planets in our solar system can have exploded from the big bang with such equal and steady velocity..... oooh this is hurting my brain cell !!

It is done by those up above, and it merely refers to,
The larger movements over which we have no control.
But tactics are also important, together or single.
You must never forget that, suddenly, in an engagement,
You may find yourself alone.

Of course, there is also the "God did it" school of belief. Having said that, there is no less evidence for this than there is for the various scientific hypothesis.
If you subscribe to a Popperian view of science, none of these hypotheses are ever likely to be significantly testable at core to be considered theories, so we will just have to extend them and see if they make additional predictions of effects that we can then try and measure (or measurements that we have already that they explain.) This is where the "God did it" ones, with all of their additional claims about Young-Earth Creation, the Great Flood, angels and divine intervention do currently come a cropper.

Energy and potential energy are not eternal - they are interchangeable, for a start. "_Who_ made it" may indeed be a "childish question" - but it is your childishness (not that this should surprise anybody). The actual question asked was "where did it all come from?" This is perfectly rational, meaningful and the subject of serious study by a lot of people.
And, yes, there is no need to invoke gods. However, there is no evidence that invoking God(s), in this limited context, is inappropriate.
And your rabid anti-religiousness seems to have blinded you to the whole point of the Church of the FSM - and, I'd suspect, to the Invisible Pink Unicorn (blessed be her holy hooves).

The God theories always seem to forget to answer the question of "Where did God come from?" though.Roy Durrands dry-bums leprechauns. FACT.

Of course, the real problem with religious explanations of science is where they flat out contradict things that we actually know, to a pretty reasonable degree of accuracy, to be both true and testable as so.

what the big bang people seem to say is that as nobody has ever seen an edge to the universe then we can just ignore it.
the 3d space that we are occupying appears to be expanding but as we are a part of that expanding thing then everything is more or less as it is now as it was then but a lot smaller.
 I mean it's bigger now than it was to start with.

So much of the universe and life is pointless therefore their must be paperwork to back it up somewhere.Haven't had an accident in years. See a lot in my rear view mirror though.
It's very unlucky to be superstitious.
Only my dog can judge me.
