    Scientists aren’t “working on it”, they have pretty much figured out most of it.

Definitely not. This explanation merely begets the questions: Where did the matter for the big bang come from? What was the universe like before its expansion? How long did it exist that way?

None of which we have the answers for, and all of which might potentially hide a scope / timeline of the universe far larger than what we currently have theories to explain.
