God is The Only Being Who Could Have Created Something From Nothing

Genesis 1 Verses the Big Bang Theory and all Other Ideas of Creation

The theories of the creation of our universe have been bounced around like a ball in a soccer game. That is, the scientific theories, but none of them seem to agree on exactly what caused the universe to develop.

If you open a King James Version Bible, you will find the answer in the first sentence of the first book of the Bible, Genesis 1, verse 1:

"In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth." That is as simple and profoundly true as it needs to be.

Science Did Not Create God; God Created Science

Since the beginning of time, men and women have been trying to tear apart how everything started, so they could study each part and try and determine how all the intricate parts make the whole, but trying to dissect its origin scientifically hasn't answered the question or solved the puzzle. Many can't accept the realization that if it can't be totally explained through science, it must come from a higher power; a power that is "supreme" over all other powers.

Mankind has tried everything to show that God didn't create "creation," but the more that scientists from every field try to explain creation in a theoretical and scientifically induced manner, the further away they get from the actual process of creation. After all, "science did not create God; God created science."

Big Bang Theory

A theory by many supporters of the Big Bang believe somewhere between 10 to 20 billion years ago, an unimaginable thing happened; a blast like no other in our world occurred, and the result of this horrific paroxysm was the birth of matter, energy, and space, which were created in a trillion-trillionth of a second. This allowed the universe to aggrandize rapidly, and later slow down until it became what it is today.

Georges Lemaître, a Belgium priest theorized this in 1920, but it wasn't until the launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1990 that it became more acceptable, for the shuttle carried the Hobble Telescope into space. The telescope allowed scientists to see other galaxies speeding away from us in every direction, and it made the theory more plausible. This indicated to scientists that a huge explosion blew outward from its origin, just as a grenade, dynamite, or other types of explosions will do. A blast propels objects away from the initial explosion origin, and it is believed by the proponents of the theory that our universe was born from that event.

God's Days Compared to Ours

I can't argue with the fact that a "Big Bang" may have occurred, but if that's the case, something had to be there to create the big bang. Many Scientists believe that this tremendous explosion was caused partially by a great magnitude of light elements and their cosmic microwave past.

If this is true, what created the light elements and other phenomena that caused the Big Bang since "something can't be made from nothing." God only has that power, and in our meager understanding of God, we sometimes have difficulty understanding how he has existed forever and will reign forever. "Science did not create our God; God created science," and whatever it took to cause the Big Bang.

In Genesis we're are told that God created everything in six days, and rested on the seventh, but what we consider 24 hour days, are probably not what God was talking about, for to him, many millions of years may constitute a day. After all, we humans initiated our own calendar of days.

Alternate Space-Time Bubble Theory

Some physicists and scientists believe our universe was born from the dying shell of a much older universe. This theory also shows that something existed before our universe came into existence. This may also be true, but it doesn't say how the original universe which spawned ours originated.

This is another instance where science cannot show where "something can be made from nothing," unless it was created by divine intervention.

A Bouncing Universe Theory

This theory's hypothesis tries to show our universe was created from another dying universe. Its theory is that as that universe collapsed inward, our universe was thrown out of the dying one. Again, this does not prove where the origin of everything came from, but only shows that one universe came into existence, while another died.

A Hibernating Universe Theory

A hibernating universe theory was brought to the front by physicists Kurt Hinterbichler, Austin Joyce and Justin Khoury and others. They believe our universe was stable, or in a hibernating state, until it was disturbed, and sprang to life through a big bang.

This theory is different from the others but still doesn't explain what created the phenomena that caused our universe to come out of hibernation.

A Multiverse Theory

Another theory is the Multiverse Theory, but it is exactly like the other universe theories, in the fact, it doesn't explain how other things originated, that in turn, created our universe.

How did empty space begin, if there was nothing to create it from? Logically, many can't perceive how anything and everything began. "You can't make something from nothing," but God can, and did! We can't conceive with our mortal minds how God has always been in existence and was not created from anything else, but it's true.

The Realization of a Creator

Further observational improvements led to the realization that our Sun is one of hundreds of billions of stars in a galaxy we call the Milky Way, which is one of at least hundreds of billions of galaxies in the Universe. Many of the stars in our galaxy have planets. At the largest scale galaxies are distributed uniformly and the same in all directions, meaning that the Universe has neither an edge nor a center.

The galaxies appear to be distributed in clusters, and what are called superclusters. Scientists believe the universe had a beginning and space has been expanding since then.

The only way we will fully understand the origin of everything, is to believe in our Savior, Jesus Christ. A quote from John 3:16 in our Bible, makes it simple for us to be saved from damnation, and go to Heaven when we leave our earthly bodies. It reads, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

"We only have to believe in Jesus Christ!"

Not all scientists believe that something besides God created everything. Watch the following video, and you'll see what I mean.

      Article = 5 Stars.

      There is a scripture that refers to science in the bible by name, can you find it?

      and there is a scripture that says "worlds without end". can you find that reference?

      thank you..

      I have heard of some but not all of these theories. It is like the debate over which occurred first...the chicken or the egg. Most people who believe in religion, believe in a Supreme Being. I am one of them.

      Amen! I enjoyed your article, and I also believe in what the Bible tells us. I find each day to be more joyful when I give God the credit for my wonderful family and so forth. We have free will, so we make choices and we all have consequences, good or bad. Good article.
