As Christian and an inquisitive nature the comparison of Scientific discovery with Biblical writings has always intrigued me, and as Science and Especially the deep space telescopes such as Hubble uncover more fascinating finds, I like to compare those to what the Bible offers.
One theory has vexed me for years, and more and more new discoveries add to my consternation.
Big Bang Theory - The Premise (http://www.big-bang-theory.com/):
The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe. Discoveries in astronomy and physics have shown beyond a reasonable doubt that our universe did in fact have a beginning. Prior to that moment there was nothing; during and after that moment there was something: our universe. The big bang theory is an effort to explain what happened during and after that moment.
Creation as per the Bible:
Genesis 1:1 and 2 KJV
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 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.
Big Bang theory:
There are many misconceptions surrounding the Big Bang theory. For example, we tend to imagine a giant explosion. Experts however say that there was no explosion; there was (and continues to be) an expansion.
So the big bang theory imagines a universe which was not instantaneous, but actually an evolution not only over time, but continuing today.
Creation as per the Bible:
Genesis 1:31 KJV
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
John 5:17 KJV
But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
So according to the Bible God also created the universe over a period of time, and according to Jesus was still actively engaged in work.
This article ends with the following statement:
Any discussion of the Big Bang theory would be incomplete without asking the question, what about God? This is because cosmogony (the study of the origin of the universe) is an area where science and theology meet. Creation was a supernatural event. That is, it took place outside of the natural realm. This fact begs the question: is there anything else which exists outside of the natural realm? Specifically, is there a master Architect out there? We know that this universe had a beginning. Was God the "First Cause"?
Has anyone else done any research in this area other than people such as Hovind etc? Of particular interest is any users of the site.
I see that there are 4 votes to have my question closed and guess it is for the best since no one seems to understand what I'm asking. I was and am not asking for verification of anything only if anyone else has noticed that those discoveries appear to give reasonable possibility to what was written Centuries ago, but due to recent discoveries doesn't seem so far fetched. I was not even asking if that lends any veracity to the Bible only the similarity of the two. I would close it myself if I were able since there seems to be little chance of it ever being understood let alone answered.
