Father Georges LeMaitre was a Belgian priest who first mentioned the Big Bang Theory of the Universe. Fred Hoyle's Steady State Theory involving continuous production of elements is well known. There are 100's of cosmologies available from various religions; every religion almost has some sort of cosmology. Because Element Number 92 Uranium breaks down into actinium, radon, through fission into Barium and Krypton, Element Breakdown Universe Theory, which I may have been the first to discuss, argues that large elements like Uranium and any of the other more than 118 elements could break down into smaller elements and the Universe. This Element Breakdown Universe theory is supported by the breakdown we see among elements, cosmic abundance of Hydrogen and Helium through breakdown, and supernovae nucleosynthesis/stellar breakdown. We breakdown, so the Universe can also be said to have developed through breakdown rather than a Big Bang. Breakdown theory could also explain some radiations; breakdowns produce radiations just as likely as bangs produce radiations. Maybe I will see you all in Stockholm this fall to pick up a Nobel Prize in Physics, but other independent discoverers of this theory would probably be upset about the slight. I have U.S., Belgium, Luxembourg, French, German, Lithuanian, Russian ancestry like Le Maitre. How is an article writer to know if someone else has developed a theory like this? No matter how much one researches, one always faces the reality that they might not find some reference showing a similar discovery. The writer, inventor is put into a position where I can only be honest that I invented the idea and am not aware of a similar reference or work by others. An author should defend his right to talk to editors about an idea if the idea has some importance hence multiple submissions.
