The Big Bang

The Big Bang

I don't know if God used the Big Bang to create the universe or not. What I do know is the discovery by Edwin Hubble in 1929 that the universe is expanding has caused all kinds of problems for scientists who thought the universe was eternal. My Bible tells me that God alone is eternal and all other things and creatures had a definite beginning. As the universe expands, it becomes less and less dense as its objects move further and further apart. If you reverse the process the objects would become more and more dense until finally they would merge into non-existence. The universe would become small without limit. If you go back far enought there would be no physical space. The universe would not exist.

The evolutionist's argument that the earth is eternal and so we had no need of a Creator is absurd. The 2nd law of thermodynamics, the law of entropy, states that the substance and energy in the universe is winding down, it is deteriorating. The sun and stars will eventually extinguish without divine intervention. The evolutionary idea that life can emerge from non-life, existence from non-existence is laughable. I think God has a question for the evolutionist: "Where were you when I formed the foundations of the earth?" - Job 38:4.

The Big Bang has thrown evolutionists for a loop. If true, it means the universe had a beginning, and has a middle and a future. So, the evolutionist can no longer hide behind the idea of an 'eternal universe' in an attempt to avoid explaining the beginning of all things. While the creationist simply embraces Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth", the evolutionist is left scratching his 'evolved from a monkey' head!!

I like what Robert Jastrow (an agnostic) wrote in his book “God and the Astronomers” – “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

If the Big Bang Theory holds water, there must be intelligence behind it. Explosions don't lead to order, they lead to chaos. Something cannot emerge from nothing without intelligent intervention! Imagine your home exploding and resulting in two or three homes. Imagine the explosion of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City resulting in a half dozen more Federal Buildings. Absurd. Imagine a tornado rushing through a junkyard and the result is a Boeing 747! If the Big Bang happened it was caused. If it was caused someone preexisted it. Must have been God.

Someone said, "When a frog turns into a prince it is called a fairy tale. When a frog turns into a prince over a period of millions of years its called good science." No, its still a fairy tale.
