Christians believe that it was God who created the Universe including the Earth, all of the life forms on planet Earth including man himself. Christians believe that God (the Christian deity) is in control of the Universe and our lives, and we should be obedient to Him. It is difficult to understand how science can believe that out of chaos, order was achieved in our universe.
This all makes the revelation that the universe was created by the “Big Bang” questionable from a believer’s standpoint, doesn’t it? NASA and the scientific community at large, continue to portray the Universe as a fluke of nature, so to speak? The problem with that is that science still knows very little (fact) about what caused the “Big Bang” that formed the Universe as we know it, if for one minute you believe they are correct. Oh yes, there is that little matter called “anti-matter” which is supposed to be part of the scientific theory on the “Big Bang”. All of this because the universe is still expanding! Do you suppose that was God’s plan?
The beautiful “Helix Nebula” (above) is one example of a very small part of God’s creation. However, the scientific community would claim that it too originated with the Big Bang! Both atheists and the scientific community at large would agree with that.
However, science has yet to answer the question of “what was there before the Big Bang”. In other words, if NASA could look back into infinity to the very beginning, what would they find? Would they find an empty Universe devoid of any planetary features except for one really huge planet? And, did that planet (or object) explode and create what the Hubble Space Telescope has so vividly photographed? Or was it something else? Not only that, but who put the planet (object) there to explode in the first place? Was the process for the explosion already in place or was an outside source required to cause it? Was it just a freak coincidence?
Of course, NASA and the scientific community claim to have all the answers, but there are far too many questions that have unattainable answers for the scientific community at the present time. There can only be one answer, and Christians know the answer as given by Scripture in the Holy Bible, and that is God created the Heavens and the Earth.
So how do we get to the next (space) void beyond the one we are in? Is there one? Who put it there, or how was it created? You have more questions you say? But, what if the following scenario took place?
On day NASA or someone develops a telescope capable of looking to the end of the universe. After many years of study, they find an opening in the space time continuum (a Star Trek thing) and are able to look through it but it’s all kind of blurred. So after years they are able to work on the now old telescope and get a clear photo of what is visible through the doorway.
Much to their surprise they have photographed God on His Throne as souls kneel before him!
Would NASA, the scientific community at large, and the atheist crowd now accept the fact that the God of the Bible created the Universe and not the Big Bang?
