Science May Soon Catch Up To Gods Word
“The fool hath said in his heart ‘there is no God’”
“Be they theist, atheist or anti-theist, on this point nearly all scientists agree: In the beginning, there was nothing. There was no time, space or matter. There wasn’t even emptiness, only nothingness. Well, nothing natural anyway.” – Writes CNS News
At some point in all that nothingness, “something” happened. That something changed the vast nothingness that existed, and in a moment, time, space and matter (all three properties of our physical universe) were birthed altogether, in an event scientist have now proven called, “The Big Bang.” It was a moment of creation that formed “nothing” into “everything” that we now know as the universe. This fact alone has atheists backed into a corner, praying for some other, any other explanation, other than God.
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
Since the big bang theory was first presented in 1931, by Georges Lemaître, who was in fact, a Belgian cosmologist and Catholic priest, there have been many attempts to try and circumvent this point but to no avail. Every theory conceivable has since been presented as an alternative, from theories like the “eternal universe,” to the multiverse theory where this is one of several universes, to Boltzmann brains maybe we are just brains in a vat, maybe we are all stuck in a simulation universe controlled by aliens and everything we know as reality is really a computer program, they literally stop at “nothing” pun intended, and would rather believe anything as long as it isn’t God.
Unfortunately for them, the big bang matches the Genesis 1:1 account of creation, In the beginning, God, created the heavens and the earth.
The standard model of the Big Bang shows, there was nothing, and bang, suddenly Everything. As J. Matt Barber writes, “Nonexistence became existence. Nothing became, in less than an instant, our inconceivably vast and finely tuned universe governed by what mankind would later call – after we, too, popped into existence from nowhere, fully armed with conscious awareness and the ability to think, communicate and observe – “natural law” or “physics.”
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
Barber goes on to explain, “The manifest intentionality and fine-tuning of all creation reveal a design of breathtaking complexity. The Creator is of incalculable intelligence and infinite splendor. As I see it, atheism provides a case study in willful suspension of disbelief – all to escape, as the God-denier imagines it, accountability for massaging the libertine impulse.”
Writing for the Wallstreet Journal, Eric Metatexas put it, “The fine-tuning necessary for life to exist on a planet is nothing compared with the fine-tuning required for the universe to exist at all. For example, astrophysicists now know that the values of the four fundamental forces – gravity, the electromagnetic force, and the ‘strong’ and ‘weak’ nuclear forces – were determined less than one-millionth of a second after the big bang. Alter any one value and the universe could not exist. For instance, if the ratio between the nuclear strong force and the electromagnetic force had been off by the tiniest fraction of the tiniest fraction – by even one part in 100,000,000,000,000,000 – then no stars could have ever formed at all. Feel free to gulp. … It would be like tossing a coin and having it come up heads 10 quintillion times in a row.”
Atheists generally attribute the whole of existence, to a series of happy accidents, unattainable odds, with absolutely no catalyst of causation. It goes against literally everything we know about cause and effect. The atheist account of creation would be as Barber explains, “nothing created the heavens and the earth.” Even in the material world that’s just plain silly. Nothing plus nothing equals something? Zero times zero equals everything?”
Albert Einstein, who was arguably the most famous and popular scientist ever to live believed that God had to have a hand in creation, he simply just could not account for how orderly everything in nature was- which is not what you might expect had the universe not been intentional. Though his own belief and understanding may have been rather universalistic, he was certainly not an atheist. Einstein in an interview by George Sylvester Viereck was quoted as saying, “I am not an atheist,” he goes on to say, “The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
And rightfully so, to take a position that denies the possibility of God, while knowing how little we have discovered in comparison to how much we still have to uncover is indeed foolish. One of my favorite verses, 1 Corinthians 1:21, puts it this way, “For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.”
Even the late astronomer Dr. Robert Jastrow who was a self-proclaimed agnostic put it like this, “For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
We may have to wait a while longer but eventually, science may finally catch up with Gods word.
