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!
