The Big Bang theory is just that, a big bang that caused our universe to be created.
Big Bang Theory - Common Misconceptions There are many misconceptions surrounding the Big Bang theory. For example, we tend to imagine a giant explosion. Experts however say that there was no explosion; there was (and continues to be) an expansion. Rather than imagining a balloon popping and releasing its contents, imagine a balloon expanding: an infinitesimally small balloon expanding to the size of our current universe....
The idea is that two particles collided causing a explosion and making the universe expand rapidly and over billions of years, here we are today!
According to the many experts however, space didn't exist prior to the Big Bang.
The Hadron Collider is a machine that causes particle beams such as electrons and protons to, as it's name implies, collide. This is where my theory begins. What if these particles that are colliding are doing a lot more? What if just maybe every time they collide a new "mini"verse is made? Now people will criticize this and probably send me bad emails but consider it, think about it, and at least give it a shot.

ouch PMB that would have hurt  still it's in the best interests of the younger ones that they understand the truth.
It is a sign of high respect for the victim when PMB does this. Straight to the point he goes in the assumption that he's dealing with someone reasonably robust and who's keen to put right any faults in their model of reality. There's some recommended reading in there too which makes clear his intention to be constructive rather than destructive.
The familiar name of this picture, the "big bang" cosmological model, is unfortunate because it suggests we are identifying an event that triggered the expansion of the universe, and it may also suggest an event was an explosion localized in space. Both are wrong. The universe we observe is inferred to be close to homogeneous, with no evidence for a preferred center that might have been the site of an explosion. The standard cosmological picture deals with the universe as it is now and as we can trace its evolution back in time through an interlocking network of observation and theory. We have evidence from the theory of the origin of the light elements that the standard model successfully describes the evolution back to a time when the mean distance between conserved particles was some ten orders of magnitude smaller than it is now. It is found that still earlier epochs left evidence that can be analyzed and used to test our ideas, then that may be incorporated in the standard model or some extension of it. If there were an instant, at a "big bang," when our universe started expanding, it is not in the cosmology as now accepted, because no one has thought of a way to adduce objective physical evidence that such an event really happened.
