Big Bang?

I wonder
how the adherents of the "Big Bang" theory explain that planets and most other heavenly bodies are all, as near as dammit,
round?

My guess would be a combination of gravity pulling particles inwards, combined with orbital rotation and cosmic erosion? P.s. Pluto aint so much round as it is rounded, and well, lumpish.

Incidentally I just wanted to add that I am not 'anti-creationist' merely, viewing things from a scientific point. There is no need why these forces themselves could not have been created by a higher being.

Don't you love that scene in Men in Black at the very end of the first one, when they zoom out from Earth, further and further until we realise that our own known universe is a marble in some ginormic larger galaxy being played with and popped in a bag by an incredibly *big* alien child. Very cool.

I think you REALLY need faith to believe in the big bang theory.

I tagged you for a little blog challenge...hope you will play;-)
