Hi Philip Jonkers -

>(proton,electrons, neutrons) immediately prior to the big bang instant?
I ain't a cosmologist, like I said, but, as far as I know, there is no
evidence of anything being around to evolve or not before the big bang.
The definition of 'Big Bang' is the start of it all- time, space, and
everything. Since protons and electrons and neutrons _have_ been shown to
be sort of late-comers to the party (being preceded by the high-energetic
heavy particles they broke off of), I'd have to wonder at your own level
of argument- I'm only basing my 'claim' on the elementary discussions of
the beginning of time and space in such places as Science and news
articles, although they are based in discoveries coming from
astrophysics, and as such could be said to be solid arguments.
As for whether or not evolution plays any part in the formation of
protons and electrons and neutrons, I still maintain it does not, any
more than the music of the spheres has evolved to become morphic
