    Actually, Stockfish 64bit suggests white has a slight (very slight) advantage if whites next move is Nf3. At depth 30 it calculated a pretty nice rook+knight pawn endgame, still favoring white though at about +=(0.30). This should be a good opening because we don't play perfect moves every game, and this opening looks very punish for both sides if they neglect their position.

    This looks bad for White.

    bB5, bD7, c4 OR bB5, nD7, c4.  What do you think about a double threat?  If he take bishop then pawn takes queen...  If you take bishop after a threat to bishop then he is forced to pull the queen back unless he wants to risk moving his king.  But if he blocks then I threat the queen with the pawn and he takes g2 then im screwed

    Bb5 or d4 would get black in some trouble.

    I don't trust too much the IQP. In an ending it is simply weak and  as black I usually wait until white has played Nbd2 or Na3 to take on d4

    The black end up winning because they get to have a valuable piece on the centre which controls man places. It is also good because it will take a lot of moves to take it of there.

    after d4 black will eventually have to exchange on d4 leaving white with a potentially dangerous IQP and a free c3 square for his knight

    e5 seems like a bad version of the french as the bishop will go out of the pawn chain I'd probably play Nc6  Bf5(g4) and e6 and black can fight for something more than equality

    I presume that you mean 1.e4 c5 2.c3 d5 3.e5  

    The move is playable, and it leads to positions that might resemble the advance variation of the Caro-Kann. 

    There are only about 35 games in the chess.com database with 3.e5 and few if any where both players were 2400+.     This doesn't necessarily mean the move is bad, however it does mean that 3.e5 isn't very fashionable.

    why can't you advance the E pawn instead of taking D5?
