The Big Bang: Wisdom of Kahana

Updated on July 1, 2014

With reference to what I spoke about in my last article, let us go back to the beginning of the universe, and refer to the scientific terminology of the Big Bang, the current model of the universe, science's accepted theory of the cosmos, which all those that have no place for God in their thinking will use as their justification for a world without a creator. But to those that know their theology, study their Old Testament or Torah, they already know about the Big Bang. In fact, it's right there in Genesis. There was nothing in the beginning. A void, chaos, a universe without substance. And then Yahweh said, "let there be light." This was light of an explosive nature, light before there were any celestial bodies like suns and stars. A light that came from the nothingness of the void and which scientists conveniently call quasars at the far reaches of our universe, that they cannot explain because their appears to be no originating source but nonetheless this light is there. What can be more definitive of a Big Bang than the expression of "Let there be Light" and suddenly without explanation, without a scientific explanation of a progenitor, it suddenly is there. So as you can see, we did not need science to formulate a theory about the Big Bang because those of us that knew our Torah had already envisioned it.

A Speck of Dust

We are nothing more than minute dots of protoplasm living on a speck of dust, that swirls and twists around a galaxy containing billions of other specks of dust that move through a celestial dance as we spiral continuously through the vastness of our universe. And what is our Milky Way, if not itself a mere handful of particles in comparison to the other gigantic galactic clusters that number in the hundreds of millions as they traverse the length of time and existence. All this, science would have us conclude came from a primordial explosion that originated from absolutely nothing. A universe created from nothing they will attempt but cannot explain, yet tonight I ask that you look up into the night sky, much as your ancestors did, and ask yourself the question, "Is this all from nothing, is this all for nothing?" If you are like me then you will know the answer. Those stars, those far off galaxies all have purpose. They all have a reason for existing. Nothing does not create something. You cannot be satisfied by the answers that science attempts to provide but fails miserably when you gaze upwards and admire the majesty of our universe. You can only come to one conclusion and that is that the Big Bang was a creative cause. That it served a purpose and that undeniably was to create this universe we exist within. And therefore if it had a purpose then it must have an originator that brought cause into effect. That originator, the progenitor of all that is and all that will be is undeniably God. No matter how scientists would like to spin this story to remove the Creator from the Big Bang, it is an impossibility because even their laws of physics tell them that something cannot be created from nothing. It takes energy, it takes will and therefore whether they will ever admit it or not, it takes what we know as God.

Living Proof

Those that ask me to prove God exists miss the point completely. When you look up at those stars, and your mind explores the far reaches of the cosmos, the real question should be, "How could God not exist?" None of this could be an accident. It is too perfect, too organized to have been anything but by creative design. The Tanakh speaks of wheels within wheels and that has always been the design of everything that we view from a subatomic level to one of a universal cosmology. As small as the subatomic particles moving about the neutrons and protons of an atomic nucleus, to the electrons that circle about that same nucleus, to the molecular clusters that make up all matter, the cytoplasm and organelles circulating around the cellular nucleus, to the moons that move around the planets, and the planets that move around the sun, and the suns that rotate in the arms of our galaxy, while galaxies wheel themselves in an ever expanding course through the universe. There are your wheels within wheels that define the power and ultimate design of Yahweh. They have always been there right before our eyes but we have been blinded by our own egotistical nature to define man as his own creator and master of this universe. Such arrogance will prove ultimately to be our downfall, for there is the pride and hubris that the Torah has warned us time and time against. Believing in a creator does not deny science but reinforces that our existence is meaningful and valuable, that order can come from chaos for a specific purpose, and that more importantly, I can respect my fellow man as being more than a cosmic accident, knowing that we all have a purpose and reason for being. That divine spark that served as the Big Bang and brought all of what we now touch, feel and sense in a variety of means gives each of us a dignity that we would not possess if existence could be created from nothing and served no true purpose. Accepting that the Big Bang was nothing more than an extension of the power and glory of God means that we can appreciate our world, our place in this cosmos with far greater responsibility to preserve it, cater for it and ensure that we can offer hope to all that look into that night sky and wonder, "What is it all about?"

      Good Friend,

      We are far from incapable, its fractal by INTENT, understand one understand all.

      Your analogy is far more accurate then your conclusion allows.

      Excellent commentary! We humans cannot see the whole picture. Each one of us is like a single cell in a body. If I were one cell in, say the stomach of a human body, among millions and millions of other cells in the body, I would only know my job and maybe understand something about what my neighbouring cells are doing, but I would have no idea at all as to what all those other cells are doing and certainly not why we are all doing what we are doing. But as humans we do know what our bodies are doing, and a lot about what purpose our Earth serves, but we are puzzled about the purpose of all the billions and billions of other stars in the Universe. But that does not mean that they don't have any purpose at al; we are simply incapable of seeing the whole picture.
