Big Rip theory predicts the destruction of universe from energi that is 
currently expanding the universe. That means the expanding energy and gravity 
are opposites in some way. If gravity and the expanding energy influence each 
other isn't it unlikely for expansion to have overcome the immense gravity in 
the once incredibly condensed universe? In other words how could Big Bang ever 
have occured?
