Big bang theory vs. God's creation.

The Earth - Some say God created the heavens and the earth. Some say that the universe was created from an atomic explosion (the big bang) What do you think?

In the beginning there was nothing and that exploded? God created the heavens and the earth in 7 days. There is a huge controversy between the two. What do you believe happened? What were you taught as a child growing up? Please explain how you believe the earth and universe was created.

If we were to put all of the greatest minds on earth and used all of our available resources we would not be able to even come close to determining how anything really got here. Science is a tool. Tools are created by man. Man is fallible. Within every creation of man lies the seeds of it's destruction. Every blueprint gets dissected and retold from so many perspectives the main one is lost. I find it hard to believe that an unforseen entity created something as vast as a universe aand disappeared. Then again how many children let thier pets fall by the wayside. Evolution is there. Kind of hard to dispute a fossil. A rose by any other name.... I'm still debating the issue just wanted to add a different point of view.

Hi leatherandlatex ! The 'creationist' view of the universe is an affront to me personally, I mean did God really wander around conjuring things up like an episode of 'I dream of Genie'? someone said that man makes tools. science is concrete if anything faith is unquantafiable! where as science reallys on mans understanding therfore if your understanding is flawed your perception is flawed. I'm glad that I wasn't indoctrinated by Faith or Science.. I just came to my own conclusions. to answer the question fully I beleive we were created in the big bang which is part of a 'multiverse' system. literally everything you see came from the big bang,I think we're not Gods, we're children of the stars!

I believe in creation. I grew up believing in it and I still do. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and if He lied in the first chapter, why would I believe the rest. My husband believes in evolution and I don't hold it against him, but I don't want him teaching it to our children.

Evolution has been proven to be true. There is scietific evidence behind every word of evolution. There is no proof behind God or even who the Bible was written by. Your children will learn about evolution in school unless you home school them. If you want your children to be ignorant by all means don't let your husband teach your kids anything. Let me ask you this. Are they not his children also? As a father does he not have the right to teach his children what he wants to. What do you mean, if he lied in the first chapter? You have no idea if all of it is a lie.

I was taught that as well, but my fiance believes in the big bang theory. If you think about it seriously..both are pretty hard to believe. I don't understand how an atomic explosion could happen from nothing or whatever they believe and create the universe. The scientists version of the creation of the world is extremely complex, but it is also kinda hard to believe that an entity created everything by saying it was there. I believed God created the Heavens and the earth. Thank you for your response.

I am not sure about the God theory, but the Big Bang theory contradicts science, anyway. Science says that both Mass and Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only manipulated, thus suggesting that everything has been here forever. So, I cannot really give an explanation for how everything was created. Maybe there is some sort of infinity that we are part of.

An extremely tough choice to make.I like science and believe in it too.Why because I got inducted into the subject long time back when I entered school.Since then how many theories and scientific laws have I encountered?Hundreds and there must be Thousands more.Belief in the power and truth of science is also necessitated by the technology and science we experience firsthand in even the routine activities we do everyday ex.Watching TV..think about it moving pictures wowww!!So science has got that In YOur Face way of making it's presence felt. On the other hand I also see the power of the other idea - I prefer calling it The Power.And I feel this finds seat in every person's Mind and Spiritual being.It has a power that reaches far beyond the realm of science. Contesting one versus the other is futile.Both do exist and have a place in our External and Internal existences.
