big bang
The cosmic explosion that marked the origin of the universe according to the big bang theory.

and there was light.

Allow us to discuss the theological and philoshophical implications of Big Bang cosmology.

May peace be upon thee and with thy spirit.

big bang

Matthew, the big bang theory is absurd, a desperate attempt to explain the universe's origin, development, and expansion without an intelligent designer. The theory fails to explain where the original supercompressed matter came from, why the matter became unstable and exploded, or how it eventually organized itself into today's complex universe. The theory fails as science because the alleged big bang cannot be observed, say, by time travel or duplicated in a lab.

Genesis 1:3
And God said, Let there be light:
and there was light.

This is an excellent verse, which says nothing about the big bang, especially since the Earth already existed void and without form or light ( Genesis 1: 2 ).

This essay seems a futile attempt to prove creationism without Scripture or revelation. The illustration with the hotel having an infinite number of rooms is as intriguing as the questions, How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? and, Can God make two mountains without a valley between them?

Theologically, the big bang points to the ultimate pointlessness of everything. If everything is eventually going to end either in a cold lifeless ever-expanding heat-dead universe, or in another white hot collapsing universe, what point is there to being good or evil? or is there such a thing as good or evil?
