Then tell us about the grasp that you have. Feel free to correct any wrong data that I gave.

Gladly, although I can tell you a good deal less than you could glean for yourself from a few minutes searching the net. However...

Your assumption has no foundation and, to the best of my knowledge, it's not to be found among the reasoned speculations of scientists. For all I know, it may be true - but then, as Bill S implied, so might almost anything else.

So, you appear to be saying that the hydrogen atom, thence your 'primordial ball' existed before the Big Bang.\
See here for a concise correction to that: http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/cms/astro/cosmos/p/Primordial+Fireball

(a) There's no reason to believe that there were any galaxy sized "bits" of matter (b) All the matter existed within spacetime from the moment of it's formation, and did not subsequently move into any other kind of space (c) There was no movement through space due to any primordial explosion, as it was not that kind of explosion - space itself was expanding, taking with it the matter.

I can't comment on "atomic clock began ticking" as I don't know what you mean. But "and light years we call time" is incorrect. A lightyear is a measure of distance.

Current data puts it at approx. 13.7 billion yrs ago. Not light years though, just yrs.

Hope that helps. As I said, there's a wealth of info available from reputable sources, and one doesn't need to be a scientist to learn about the current theories of cosmogenesis.
