Big Bang or God? Creation of the World (Edit-Big Bang and God)


Most scientists believe that the origin of our universe came into being about 14 billion years ago. There was a very tiny piece of matter all alone, then in just a second, it exploded. This caused our universe to come into being..

Scientists also believe that the position of the universe before it exploded, was only about a few millimeters across. That is pretty small, considering how we cannot even imagine how large our universe is even today. Scientists believe that small piece of matter, just a too small to measure suddenly exploded into what our universe is today.

Albert Einstien followed the Big Bang Theory by developing the General Theory of Relativity. The General Theory of Relativity basically tells us "Matter tells space how to move, and space tells matter how to move"

In 1968 and 1970 Steven Hawkins and two other British Astrophysicists ,George Ellis and Roger Penros, studied Einstien's Theory of Relativity, but added measurements of time and space to it. According to the calculations of these Astrophysicists, time and space had a finite beginning that corresponded to matter and energy. They also added Singularity or the Black Hole. The Black Hole and the Singularity theory became their theory for the beginning of the universe.

A Black Hole is a very fascinating object. It is an object with extreme density. The density of this object is so strong not even light can escape it. But,since the black hole is so strong, how could it have exploded? Still, if the universe did not exist, how could a black hole have existed?

A black hole still needs a universe to exist. So the author of this hub is back to the first question.

If nothing existed before the big bang, then how could the big bang have created our universe. How can something come from nothing?

Then we come to time. Time did not exist before the big bang. Nothing can move without time. If nothing can move, then how could enough pressure have built up in this small piece of matter, to cause it to explode?


Then God would have to be the One who created the universe. As we have been told in Genesis 1:1,2 1-In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2-Now the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Then in the bible we are told God said let there be light, and there was light. We are not told what was used to create the Heavens and the Earth, or what kind of matter was used, or how heavy the matter was. But, space, time, and matter were created. We were created from nothing! No scientist has ever been able to prove how this happened. How can something come from nothing? This hub is short, that is true, but the reason for it, is simplicity. Something cannot come from nothing. Without time, matter cannot build up enough to create the big bang. That is impossible. Without enough energy or time, the big bang simply cannot be the creation of the universe.

However, God created the big bang, and said " Let there be light" Then it is true. God created the big bang. Because in the bible how could someone make up the phrase "And there was light"?
















The bible also corresponds to the creation of the universe. In Genesis, it is written that the earth was without form, and was empty, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the the waters.. In Genesis 1:3 God said "Let there be light"

As you move through the first chapter of Genesis you can see that the creation of all life on the planet is created, even as evolutionists have found it. First came land and waters. Then the land, began to separate. So, instead of having only one land mass, there was land all over the world.

Then God allowed vegetation to grow from the land. Trees, seed-bearing plants, and fruits that have seeds in them. After that, God allowed creatures to live in the water, then creatures who could fly in the sky. And He blessed them. After that, God decided to allow larger animals to walk on land. Any kind of creature that could move along the ground.

After that God created Man in His own image. Male and female. Then on the 6th day, God rested.

If you look at scientific information, when it comes to evolution, it is exactly the same way life came to be on earth. First small fish lived in the sea, then they came out to live on dry land. Then came larger animals, who lived before humans. Humans were the last ones that were created.

Once again, the entire first chapter of Genesis, is scientifically correct. An entire chapter!

God created not only the big bang, he created us, all of us!

Interesting hub that asks many of the same questions I've asked myself. I've always wondered why I must separate science and religious beliefs.

Since I am a believer in science and a Catholic, I have attempted to see scientific reasonings within religious beliefs. So, if God created the world in 7 days, I must wonder what 7 days to God is. Odd, I know, but, for me, it works.

I recently came to a crystallization of my line of thought on this. EVERYTHING is a manifestation of energy...including consciousness. I truly believe that this is the full meaning of E=MC2, and it is the full meaning of God. I have no problem with my beliefs, scientific or religious. I truly believe this is our destination. Both were born of the same parentage, and both have come full circle. Two circles interconnected." 8" the symbol of eternity and the infinite. The 8th day.

The universe is a pathetic creation. It is a vast wasteland of useless material. Even today billions of pieces of space junk roam around our Solar System looking for a place to destroy or severely damage.

I would not be proud to be its creator.

I wrote a hub on the universe and lack of value to us.

Voted up. I'm a Freethinker, and i have a scientific background (chemistry), and I choose neither of the above.

My impression of much of cosmology/astrophysics is that it's way too far ahead of the data. If scientific research dollars are held constant, I'd like to see more funding for space exploration and basic astronomy, and less for the idle speculation.

BB is not consistent with the 'theory' of Black Holes. The universe was a BH, according to the basic definition. Is that consistent with an expanding and accelerating universe?

More to the point, BB is not sufficiently falsifiable. Pop Sci accounts say things like: When the universe was the size of a grapefruit . . . Problem is: Even if we had a time machine, we could not verify any such claim, because we'd be destroyed in the process.

On the other hand, we could use a hypothetical time machine to check up on the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Did an asteroid impact do them in, as many of us suspect, or is the picture more complicated than that?

The late Nobel laureate (physics) Richard Feynman had a great insight:

"Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts."

At the moment, I don't have much confidence in the Big Bang 'experts'. I think that most of them would make better use of their time if they studied penguin droppings in Antarctica.

I don't believe Time Travel is possible especially to the future. All the theories of time travel involve a concept of time that is not real. They include virtual dimensions, speed of light travel and other guesses.

Time is a measurement not an event.

Even if time travel were possible, it would not be functional. We can't change things in real time that are beneficial, why would time travel changes make any better ones?

Creation: Big Bang or God?

God said He created it. Man said the Big Bang caused the universe to exist. Of course God created it in 6 days and on the 7th He finished it. I used to doubt what God said. All of my doubts had already been washed away.

I don't see why this must be an either/or question. Science cannot disprove God, nor is that it's aim. The big bang is simply a deduction from what has been observed in our universe. I see no reason why God could not have engineered such an event.

It depends on whether the God is perfect or not.

The universe serves no purpose for us, and it is by far filled with imperfections such as deadly Asteroids, Comets and space junk.

The universe is also a major overkill to surround the Earth, which I believe is purported by the Bible as the reason for God to create us.

my opinion

Michele Travis 4 years ago from U.S.A. Ohio Author

Luke, thank you for your comment. In fact, I agree with you completly. I believe God did create the big bang. I only wrote this because some scientist use the big bang to prove there is no God.

ib, thank you for your comment also. I do belive everyone has the right to say what they do or do not believe.

ib, that is fine. Nobody should ever force their belief upon anyone. As all major religions have shown us, that only becomes violence, torture, execution, and war.


logic,commonsense 4 years ago

I don't know the answer. My question all comes down to this and I have great difficulty grasping the enormity of it all. Who or what was created first and how where they or what, created? It is a paradox that quite frankly perplexes me. There had to be a beginning, but how was the beginning originated?

If it was God, who created God and what is it called?

If it was the big bang, who or what created that?

It gives me a headache just thinking about it! :)


Michele Travis profile image

Michele Travis 4 years ago from U.S.A. Ohio Author

Please don't let me give you a headache. Nobody can prove it in any way at all. I was just asking a question, just wondering. As I had said before, nobody should force a religious belief on somebody else. Because it has in the past, and in and will keep on happening( the muslims are doing it now in other countries) it causes, torture, execution, and war.

I just came upon some thing about the big bang "Cosmologists are trained to say there was no time before the Big Bang, when we should say that we don't know whether there was anything - or if there was, what it was."

Sean Carroll, physicist, CalTech, author From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time

dosn't something to move require time? It there was no time nothing could move, so no pressure could have been built up. So only God could have made the everything. If the Big Bang did happen, it happend because of God.

The problem with asking whether or not there is a God or saying God did this or saying you cannot disprove God is that God is a baseless assumption, an argument from ignorance. When you say the Big Bang or God we see evidence of a Big Bang in background microwave radiation in deep space but we have yet to see any evidence for any sort of "god" of any definition or any religion. There are over 20 different religions in the world practiced today. Which God and which creation story are we talking about? And as far as saying prove God doesn't exist or prove God didn't do it... you'd first have to prove God exists or could exist or did something. It's trying to prove something that exists only in our minds, most people believe in something because they want to not because they are true.


sheilamyers 3 years ago

I believe God spoke and something popped into existence, not some big explosion causing everything. If, as the theorists say, the original matter always existed, they shouldn't then ask who created God when we say God created everything. If matter can just have always been there, the same is true of God.

Nicely done Michelle. You laid out what the traditional scientific explanation for our universe is and the spiritual one. Like you, I do not believe they are mutually exclusive, but complementary explanations of creation and our universe.

I love the scripture that says something like, "With God a single day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as a single day." Not that we are to literally measure everything in units of days or thousand of years, but to convey the of both God and the Universe and the human limitations we face in understanding time, since few of us even live to be a hundred.

I also love to think about perspective and perception when contemplating these sorts of things. Just as one small example -- who among us has not returned as an adult to visit something we saw when we were 5 or 6 or 7 -- and were horribly shocked to find how small and insignificant it looked, because we had been carrying this grand and gigantic image in our minds all those years. Anyway, I babble. Great Hub. Thank you. Sharing. Theresa

There is a major problem with this did God create it or was it natural and did it happen on it's own. First problem is that beyond the Big Bang we don't know what the universe looked like, I doubt it didn't all together not exist. It existed just not in a form we would be able to observe. Second, the explanation for God creating it, whose God? The Christian God, he has only existed in the minds of man for 3500 years, the Hindu Gods are the oldest Gods still worshiped today, this is a proven fact. And as far as the Bible is concerned, saying that because an old book said that God said something it must be true is truly idiotic (no offense to the believer). How do you know God said it? Because some guy wrote it down saying he said it? That is the biggest con in the world and con artists and liars have existed since men learned to deceive in order to get what they wanted. The Mormon religion is a great example. How many people are members of the Mormon church? The founder of the Mormon church is a convicted Scam artist. Yet he founded a church and it is the fastest growing religion next to Scientology. Scientology was created by a Science Fiction writer, how big is that church and how many people follow their teachings?

The problem with this hub and it's conclusions is that it is biased assumption based on the lack of knowledge for the subject of physics and astrophysics. The Bible in no way reflects the conclusions made by scientists in any way. You can rationalize the Bible with science all you like but the Bible's history/prehistory is severely flawed with what science actually says about the age and formation or the Universe and the Earth and life on Earth as well as a lack for any explanation for the vastness of the cosmos, actual prehistory and the geological and paleontological observations we have made. Before the spread of Christianity, the Judeo-Christian God was confined to believers in the middle east until about 300-500 ACE.... why is that? Because depending on the area people created their own idea of how the world was made, what beings made it or how it was formed, without the collection of data. They and all believers assumed it was the God that they were taught without questioning it's validity fully. If you were born in India you would be worshiping Vishnu or some other such God like that. Why the Christian God? Because that is all you really know. And do you really know?

I question everything, every supposed answer to every question I am able to observe or have. If someone makes a claim they must prove that that claim is valid with evidence. So far there is no evidence that God or any God exists or is the cause for anything in the universe, every question that uses God as the answer has been shown to be wrong and you are pushed back. How does the rain come down "God".... no condensation from the evaporated water in the atmosphere... and so on to the next question and next answer.... So far even the scientists who have looked for God to be the answer to something have been tragically disappointed to find he is not the answer to anything. God is a useless idea that only serves to bring comfort to those who lack the knowledge of their world, mostly I believe they are too lazy and cowardly to question their God because they have been raised with an irrational fear of this imaginary being.

Dear Michelle - You cannot argue or rationalize with him at all. Save your energy and your spirit. His mind is made up; he is totally convinced of his own logic, and I am sure he would say the same of us. So be it, let it go. This is not a person that you or I can reach on the intellectual plane; either he will be open to the voice of the Spirit or he won't. Pray and let it go, please. All my best. Theresa

I can be convinced I am wrong, but I have one requirement for that, it's called evidence, as far as God is concerned, if you can show me evidence that proves God exists or is the cause for anything in the universe then I WILL change my mind. As far as your thinking phdast7, that's pretty harsh judgement. You don't even know me. I feel pretty sad for people who do that, just dismiss their fellow person without so much as a friendly debate, that was pretty unfriendly. I can at least hear you or ANYONE out and tell them what I think is wrong with what they have said and I hope they would do the same for me, because, hey, I have been wrong many many times. but that is how we learn and become more intelligent beings, by being willing to not close our minds off to the other side of the debate. I grew up as a Christian and I changed my mind, can you in all honesty prove to me that I am wrong for doing so? So far all anyone offers me is "pray" or giving me empty promises or empty threats of what happens after I die. That is all any believer has or ever will have. This is a subject I have researched for many years and if I had made up my mind, why would I still be debating with you?

And Michele, take as much time as you need to respond, I promise you a friendly response or debate, what I can't promise is that my responses won't offend most hardened believers by the mere fact I will state why I don't believe I have reasons based in evidence, not blind faith or will or want. If such a being existed or was possible I don't believe he is the same as described in any holy book, those are usually based in the biased ideology and ignorance for the causes by it's authors.
