Cosmic Background Radiation is a steady microwave radiation from space. It is found in every direction and is roughly equal to 2.73K black body radiation. It is claimed to be residual radiation from the Big Bang.

It has been shown that there are small fluctuations of about 0.001% in the black body temperature. The pattern fits that of shifted radiation of a boundary layer of the universe. They would represent small temperature variations.

This shows that cosmic background radiation does not necessarily come from the big bang because the White hole cosmology and Robert Gentry's New Redshift Interpretation provide a source as well.

It should be noted that the hypothesis of inflation during the early stages of the hypothetical Big Bang was invoked in order to explain the discrepancy between the observed uniformity of the CBR and what was predicted by the Big Bang model. The model now includes several hypotheses, including inflation, dark energy and dark matter, none of which there is any experimental evidence to support, but must be assumed if the model is to be correct. It is only a matter of time before the existing model is again reformed beyond recognition.
