Scientists have speculated for decades about the possibility that these may have been slightly different in the distant past - and thus the laws of physics would not be exactly the same.
This is quite controversial, mavericky science because it's very hard to test -
If it's not testable, then by definition it is not science.
Now there's no proof the fundamental constants have changed at all since the big bang, but there's no proof they haven't...
By factoring in those different values we could possibly explain a lot of the other things which currently remain open questions.
So while it's unlikely - it's nevertheless and most decidedly NOT bollocks.
Then it's not science.
It's maverick science for sure
"Maverick Science". Made up definitions still don't get you to a testable theory.
