Cosmological Crisis

Ptolemy explained the heavens as various spheres moving the heavenly bodies around the Earth.  As observations became more and more accurate with the advent of the telescope, the complexity of these spherical movements became unsupportable.  With one change Copernicus replaced the geocentric universe with the heliocentric universe resolving in one simple stroke the unexplained intricacies of observed motion.

The current theories that patch up the holes in the Big Bang theory are in a similar state of crisis as existed in the middle of the last millennium.  The triage cosmology of string theory, M-theory, inflation theory, dark matter, exotic energy and multiverse theories combine to produce a Ptolmeic-like crisis.  A Copernican-like solution is required.
