The discoveries in modern science by Einstein and Hubble assert that the universe is expanding, ant that if the "clock" were rolled back, the universe would come to a "Singularity Point." They stop, scientifically, and cannot speak as to where the "plasma" of that Point came from. But they do raise the inescapable need for a "Cause."
The scientific Law requires one: Every thing that came to be must have a Cause for its coming onto being. (Law of Causation) And common sense dictates: ex nihilo, nihil fit (From nothing, nothing comes.)
But a major plank in Naturalistic philosophies (Atheism, secularism, naturalism, humanism, materialism) is the absence of any Cause (supernatural source, creator). So does science expose a vital flaw in Atheism that not only discredits it as a valid worldview, but tends to confirm the Christian Doctrine of Creation?
Of course, science does not name the Source (God) even though it does require a Cause with the attributes of a God that matches the Christian God.
Should this give naturalists pause to reconsider the Doctrine of Creation, if they are to give credence and allegiance to modern science?
In the Beginning God is the beginning of the revelation by God to mankind. In this statement lies the Cause, purpose, and meaning of all creation! Since this important fact is assailed aggressively in modern academia, deceiving millions of gullible students each year, would it not be a blessing and advantage to students to know that modern science is not incompatible to Genesis 1:1, but actually implies the need for a Cause by scientific requirements?
This query asks nothing about the mode or method of Creation nor the process of speciation, nor the development of stars, planes, galaxies, etc. But only focuses on the original Source, Cause, Creator of this vast universe. And if modern science gives any factual input that would help settle this dilemma that perplexes the human mind. This question asks neither for opinion or traditional folklore, but only for the application of scientific Laws recognized by modern researchers.
