Who or what created the world? Did God create the World as mentioned in the Bible in the first Book of Genesis or does Science now have all the answers and everything started with the "Big Bang" or what is hailed as "The Big Bang Theory". We live in a world now where you could say Science is taking on Religion, where Science thinks it has all the answers, everything has been explained away, Religion is nonsense with people believing in something that doesn't exist. Everything is now atoms, molecules, particles, chemical reactions, electronic pulses and dna and other things that have nothing to do with Religion whatsoever.

Introduction


How was our Universe created? How did it come to be the seemingly infinite place we know of today? And what will become of it, ages from now? These are the questions that have been puzzling philosophers and scholars since the beginning the time, and led to some pretty wild and interesting theories. Today, the consensus among scientists, astronomers and cosmologists is that the Universe as we know it was created in a massive explosion that not only created the majority of matter, but the physical laws that govern our ever-expanding cosmos. This is known as The Big Bang Theory.

Basically there are two camps here Evolutionary Theory (Science) and Creationism (Religion). Evolutionary theory is a scientific theory, as in it is a well substantiated explanation, acquired by the use of scientific method, that is accepted by the majority of subject matter experts as the best explanation of a collection of natural phenomena known as evolution. Creationism is a collection of ideas, ranging from literal readings of the Book of Genesis in the Bible to the simple belief that life originated from a divine being.

The Big Bang Theory
1. The basics of the Big Bang theory are fairly simple. In short, the Big Bang hypothesis states that all of the current and past matter in the Universe came into existence at the same time, roughly 13.8 billion years ago. At this time, all matter was compacted into a very small ball with infinite density and intense heat called a Singularity. Suddenly, the Singularity began expanding, and the universe as we know it began.

2.Alternative Version The Big Bang is a scientific theory about how the universe started, and then made the groups of stars (called galaxies) we see today. The universe began as very hot, small, and dense, with no stars, atoms, form, or structure (called a "singularity"). Then about 14 billion years ago, space expanded very quickly (thus the name "Big Bang"), resulting in the formation of atoms, which eventually led to the creation of stars and galaxies. The universe is still expanding today, but getting colder as well.

As a whole, space is growing and the temperature is falling as time passes. Cosmology is the name given to how the universe began and how it has developed. Scientists that study cosmology agree the Big Bang theory matches what they have observed so far.

What Is The Evidence For The Big Bang?


What caused the Big Bang?


The question of what caused the Big Bang is one of the most difficult facing humanity. We may never find an answer, and even if we do, we probably won't understand it. It's difficult to imagine an event occurring without a cause, and yet, that is precisely the prospect we are faced with when it comes to this question. More on theories on what caused the Big Bang later in this article.

God Created the Earth and the Universe


Now going to the opposite end of the Spectrum into the realm of Religion and Christianity we find that the process of the creation of earth and the universe was the result of divine intervention and it was a more gradual process, that took 6 days with each day the results were observed, if they were good, then this led to the next days divine intervention until the process was complete on the sixth day with the seventh day being the day of rest for the Lord, what you could say our weeks are based on to this very day.

Most Christians think that Science is not in competition with Religion or even defying it but actually supports the Christian argument.

So with the God Angle and the famous Bible quote where God created the Earth and the Universe in six days and rested on the seventh. Below in it´s entirety how the universe and our world was created from Day 1 to Day 7

Day 1 Genesis 1:1-5
1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2. And 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.
3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Day 2 Genesis 1:6-8
6. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Day 3 Genesis 1:9-13
9. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

Day 4 Genesis 1:14-19
14. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Day 5 Genesis 1:20-23
20. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Day 6 Genesis 1:24-28
24. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth

Day 7 Genesis 2:1-3
1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

The Young Earth Creationism V The Old Earth Creationism


Young Earth Creationism
Young Earth creationism (YEC) is the religious belief that the Universe, Earth and all life on Earth were created by direct acts of God between 5,700 and 10,000 years ago. Christians are the main believer of this YEC, whowill use a literal interpretation of the creation narrative in the Bible's Book of Genesis and believe that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days.

Old Earth Creationism
Old Earth creationism (OEC) is an umbrella term for a number of types of creationism, including gap creationism, progressive creationism, and evolutionary creationism. Old Earth creationism is typically more compatible with mainstream scientific thought on the issues of physics, chemistry, geology and the age of the Earth, in comparison to young Earth creationism. There are Christians in this camp (including myself) that think the world was not created in six days, maybe six days in God terms but a God day is not equivalent to a human day and such a divine creator is beyond time itself. 1 day could literally be thousands of years in human terms maybe even millions. The bible is not taken as a literal timeline but is seen as a book of faith. That's the OEC view

A 2009 poll by Harris Interactive found that 39% of Americans agreed with the statement that "God created the universe, the earth, the sun, moon, stars, plants, animals, and the first two people within the past 10,000 years", yet only 18% of the Americans polled agreed with the statement "The earth is less than 10,000 years old"??

My Opinion

In my opinion the Young Earth theory, and the Bible in particular certainly does not support such a fact. Nowhere does it say in the Bible that the Earth is either young, neither does it tell us this is an important factor, neither does it assert that it is at all relevant in anyway, therefore, any Christian that supports this theory is following the ideology of assumptive time-wasting humans, that are doing more to discredit the Bible than actually promote its positive spiritual message. The Bible does however tell us that a day to God can be thousands of years to a human and that a day for a human can be a thousand years for God. The Earth is far more ancient that the 6,000 years theory, it just has to be......but again that's just my view I'm an OEC Christian and not a YEC

If the Big Bang Created the Universe. Who or What Created the Big Bang?


This is where the problems start to creep in with Scientific Theory. You could say it is the Chicken and Egg scenario. Science is very good at explaining things that have happened in the past or about things that happen on a daily basis. The problem is this, as I say many times, Science can only provide an answer to a question which then unfortunately then raises more questions to explain that answer. Such a scenario is created with the Big Bang Theory. If the Big Bang did in fact create the universe and the world that we live in now..........the question is...........what created the Big Bang in the first place. Does Science have an answer for that, if it does, does that answer create even more questions that require more answers.



Even if science can explain what actually happened all those Millions of years ago and can maybe come up with some evidence to support that fact, one inescapable fact remains, the people who are coming out with these theories unfortunately were not their at the time all those Millions of years ago, the only one was there, if you believe that, God the Creator himself. As it is so well put in the Bible in the Book of Revelations:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8

A closer look at what Darwinism actually is a definition.


Another example of Scientific Theory is the Darwin Theory of Evolution and the infamous Book "the Origin of the Species" which states that humans are actually descended from apes who are our distant relatives. It has been pretty much universally accepted that apes or primates are where we came from. In Darwin's theory, species that did not adapt to changing environments or withstand the competition of other species faced annihilation.

Darwin's Theory of Evolution - The Premise and Theory
Darwin's Theory of Evolution is the widely held notion that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor: the birds and the bananas, the fishes and the flowers -- are all related. Darwin's general theory presumes the development of life from non-life and stresses a purely naturalistic (undirected) "descent with modification". That is, complex creatures evolve from more simplistic ancestors naturally over time. In a nutshell, as random genetic mutations occur within an organism's genetic code, the beneficial mutations are preserved because they aid survival -- a process known as "natural selection." These beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation. Over time, beneficial mutations accumulate and the result is an entirely different organism (not just a variation of the original, but an entirely different creature).

There's just one flaw with this theory. IF we are in fact descended from apes, as in evolved from them and in effect replaced them in evolutionary terms, why are apes still around, millions of years later in quite large numbers and proving quite successful in their own right? Squirrels is another good example, the red squirrel has all but disappeared from the UK replaced by the new breed of Grey Squirrel .You could say in evolution terms, the Grey has replaced the Red. The red squirrel is no more, or maybe low numbers in remote areas. Mammoths are distant relatives of the current elephants but died out with the ice age and are no longer around. Why hasn't the same happened with man and apes?

Flaws in the Darwin Theory of Evolution

(1) Fossil records often lacks transitional forms and that there are "explosions" of new life forms, a pattern of radiations that challenges Darwinian evolutionary theory.

(2) Many scientists have challenged the ability of random mutation and natural selection to produce complex biological features.

(3) Many lines of evidence for Darwinian evolution and common descent are weak:

SOME QUESTIONS AND THEORIES FROM INFIDELS:


Some brain stretching analysis on the Big Bang Theory, The First Cause Argument and Quantum Field Theory and The Perfect Vacuum. Text and information courtesy Infidels

The traditional first-cause argument rests on the assumption that everything has a cause. Since nothing can cause itself, and since the string of causes can't be infinitely long, there must be a first cause, namely, god. This argument received its classic formulation at the bands of the great Roman Catholic philosopher, Thomas Aquinas. He writes:

The Traditional First-Cause Argument: Saint Thomas's argument is this:

1. Everything is caused by something other than itself
2. Therefore the universe was caused by something other than itself.
3. The string of causes cannot be infinitely long.
4. If the string of causes cannot be infinitely long, there must be a first cause.
5. Therefore, there must be a first cause, namely god.
The most telling criticism of this argument is that it is self-refuting. If everything has a cause other than itself, then god must have a cause other than himself. But if god has a cause other than himself, he cannot be the first cause. So if the first premise is true, the conclusion must be false.

To save the argument, the first premise could be amended to read:

1'. Everything except god has a cause other than itself.

which brings us back to the first Bible quote

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8

But then Infidels goes on to say this

Quantum electrodynamics reveals that an electron, positron, and photon occasionally emerge spontaneously in a perfect vacuum. When this happens, the three particles exist for a brief time, and then annihilate each other, leaving no trace behind. The spontaneous, temporary emergence of particles from a vacuum is called a vacuum fluctuation, and is utterly commonplace in quantum field theory. A particle produced by a vacuum fluctuation has no cause. Since vacuum fluctuations are commonplace, god cannot be the only thing that is uncaused.

Every place on Earth is subject to natural disasters, and there are many places where humans cannot live. Insects, on the other hand, seem to thrive almost everywhere. When the great biologist G. B. S. Haldane was asked what his study of living things revealed about god, he is reported to have said, "An inordinate fondness for beetles." If the Earth was created for us it certainly leaves something to be desired.

The big bang argument for the existence of god is supposed to succeed where the traditional first-cause argument fails. Let's see if it does. Ross's version of the argument goes like this:

6. Everything that had a beginning in time has a cause.
7. The universe had a beginning in time.
8. Therefore the universe had a cause.
9. The only thing that could have caused the universe is god.
10. Therefore, god exists.

BUT what about the Scientific theory called The Steady State Theory?


In cosmology, the Steady State theory is an alternative to the Big Bang model of the evolution of the universe. In the steady-state theory, the density of matter in the expanding universe remains unchanged due to a continuous creation of matter, thus adhering to the perfect cosmological principle, a principle that asserts that the observable universe is basically the same at any time as well as at any place. In other words there was NO Big Bang.

While the steady state model enjoyed some popularity in the mid-20th century, it is now rejected by the vast majority of cosmologists, astrophysicists and astronomers, as the observational evidence points to a hot Big Bang cosmology with a finite age of the universe, which the Steady State model does not predict.


Conclusion


In an age where we can press a button and order anything we like online and it comes to our door without us even leaving the house, rockets can go to the moon and back, probes can go to Mars and beyond and be remote controlled from earth, satellites circle our globe supporting our communications, we can communicate with somebody the other side of the planet in a second, we have the power to blow up the world multiple times over and create human or animal life in a test tube in a laboratory, we`ve created crops that are now disease and pest free - super crops, with a world population of over 6 billion people we still manage to feed ourselves. Everything in life has now been explained and mankind is in charge. AI is in the pipeline, we are on the verge of a some sort of New World, and technology is making our lives easier and you could say is taking over our lives. You could also say that mankind gives the impression he is in charge on this planet and doesn't need God anymore?

But even now with all this power and control there are still certain things that cannot be explained, some things we cannot control. Weather we have no control over and with the recent extreme weather this planet has been experiencing, natural disasters and increasing activity in the Cosmos such as Asteroids and Meteorites, we have no control over these things either. All mankind can do is run for cover, run for the hills or evacuate. We know if we don't the consequences at best are injuries at worse mass deaths. No technology in the world can save us from these events, it can only warn or mildly reduce the impact.

Pandemics do flare up and fast as well as we have seen in the past, Aids. Ebola and more recently the Zika Virus being a case in point. Both these recent diseases are not that big in global terms but they do have a biblical tendency to them hiiting specific populations or genders and cures prove elusive in the short term. In recent times it is slowly dawning on mankind that maybe, just maybe, there is a higher power that controls what is going on in our world, an all seeing all powerful presence that sees and knows everything, infinitely more than we will ever know, even the very secret of life itself...............and so beyond science it's difficult to comprehend..

It's a common misconception that Science flies in the face of Religion, but science merely proves in a scientific way again that maybe there is a higher power at work here, all the other jigsaw pieces just don't fit otherwise.

As we have seen there are holes and flaws in the Big Bang Theory, Darwinism, Young Earth Creationism, The Steady State Theory and many other explanations on how we got here and where our roots actually are. The Bible requires a certain amount of faith, if you don't have that faith then it's just like reading a fairy tale. If you do have faith and understand the information that is contained within it, many doors are opened a lot of things that go on in this world start to make sense, things that happened exactly the same thousands of years ago when the Bible was written.

On a final note, If science says that our world and our universe were created via The Big Bang, why is it that even now after discovering planetary systems outside our solar system and knowing now all the planets within our solar system, Planet Earth is the only one that has the capability to sustain life and importantly human life. Why is that.............is there a scientific explanation for that or is it an act beyond human grasp and the realms of science in what can only be called "Divine Intervention" by a higher superior power??

If you believe in God, only God knows about how, when, where and how the world was created, he was the only one there at the time and is the only one that has the conclusive proof and evidence that these things actually happened. The question is...........do you believe there is a God?

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
