The Big Bang!

(4 Minute Read. 27Oct2021)

“Nothing exploded into everything.”

That’s the Big Bang Theory in a nutshell.

How transparently idiotic! From nothing, nothing comes.

The prevailing Big Bang worldview asserts the universe popped into existence with a Big Bang around 15 billion years ago. It is imagined that the universe started with an extremely hot, unimaginably dense point and has been expanding ever since.

What could be more ridiculous?
How could such an event possibly happen?
Where did that “extremely hot, unimaginably dense point” come from?
What caused the explosion?
Where did the matter and energy for the explosion come from?
How did the physical laws that governed the explosion originate?

How could an extremely complex, highly ordered universe possibly result from an explosion? Explosions are destructive, not creative. Explosions are disorganizing, not organizing.

It is a logical impossibility for the universe to create itself, big bang or not.

Scientific Problems

The Big Bang theory has many problems. If a big bang started the universe, then matter should be evenly distributed. But matter is not evenly distributed throughout the universe. Matter is organized into ever more complex groupings.

Stars are grouped in galaxies like our own Milky Way which has 100–400 billion stars. Galaxies are gravitationally bound together in clusters with some galaxies orbiting other galaxies. Galaxy clusters clump together into superclusters. Galaxy superclusters group together to form enormous “walls” with great separating voids between the walls.

This elaborate organization of stars, galaxies, clusters, and walls makes the universe resemble a ginormous “spiderweb” of matter around great empty voids with the threads of the spiderweb being the great walls. Galaxy walls are also called galaxy filaments which emphasizes the sparse structure of matter in the great void of space.

The observable universe contains an estimated 1022 to 1024 stars. No one has any idea how many more stars are burning beyond the observable universe. The greatest understatement of all time is this:
He made the stars also. (Genesis 1:16)

Why did God make so many stars and so many galaxies? To declare the glory and awesomeness of the Great Creator!
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. (Psalms 19:1-4)
Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made. (Romans 1:20)

Andromeda Galaxy
Nearest large galaxy to the Milky Way
Has 1 trillion stars

Our Milky Way is part of the Laniakea Supercluster containing 100,000 galaxies. It is part of the galaxy wall called the Pisces–Cetus Supercluster Complex.

Other galaxy walls include the Coma Great Wall (discovered in 1989), the Sloan Great Wall (discovered in 2003), the Hercules–Corona Borealis Great Wall (discovered in 2013), the BOSS Great Wall (discovered in 2016), and the South Pole Wall (discovered in 2020).

The Hercules–Corona Borealis Great Wall is the largest structure in the observable universe measuring 10 billion light-years in length — and scientists didn’t even know about it until less than a decade ago! What an intricate and magnificent universe!

How did stars, galaxies, clusters, and walls form? No mathematically sound theory exists for an evolutionary formation.

George Mason University physics professor Dr. James Trefil wrote,

“There shouldn’t be galaxies out there at all, and even if there are galaxies, they shouldn’t be grouped together the way they are. . . . The problem of explaining the existence of galaxies has proved to be one of the thorniest in cosmology. By all rights, they just shouldn’t be there, yet there they sit. It’s hard to convey the depth of the frustration that this simple fact induces among scientists.”
(Trefil, The Dark Side of the Universe, Macmillan Publishing Co., pp. 3, 55, 1989)

Scientists do not universally accept the Big Bang. Astronomer Halton Arp (1927–2013) wrote,

“In my opinion the observations speak a different language; they call for a different view of the universe. I believe the Big Bang theory should be replaced, because it is no longer a valid theory.”
(Neue Horizonte 92/93—Ein Forum der Naturwissenschaften, Piper-Verlag, pp. 118, 1993.)

Astronomer Geoffrey Burbidge wrote,

“Big Bang cosmology is probably as widely believed as has been any theory of the universe in the history of Western civilization. It rests, however, on many untested, and in some cases untestable, assumptions. Indeed, Big Bang cosmology has become a bandwagon of thought that reflects faith as much as objective truth. This situation is particularly worrisome because there are good reasons to think the Big Bang model is seriously flawed.”
(Burbidge, “Why Only One Big Bang?”, Scientific American, Feb 1992, p 120.)

The Big Bang is a speculative hypothesis about the origin of the universe. It has no eyewitness confirmation. It is not repeatable. It is not observable. It is not testable. It cannot be investigated in the laboratory. The Big Bang is not scientific; it is unproven conjecture about the far distant past.

Nobel physicist Leon Ledermann, referring to speculations like the Big Bang, wrote in his book The God Particle (1993), “When you read or hear anything about the birth of the universe, someone is making it up.”

The Big Bang has no eyewitness confirmation.
It is not repeatable, observable, or testable.
It cannot be investigated in the lab.
The Big Bang is not scientific — it is only speculation about the distant past.

Big Bang Contradicts Bible

Some believe the Big Bang was when the Great Creator made light on Creation Day One (Genesis 1:1-5). But this violates the text — earth and heaven already existed before light was created. Moreover, God created the sun and stars three days after the earth.

Big Bangers contradict Scripture by reversing this order, claiming the sun and stars preceded the earth by billions of years.

Big Bangers also say earth formed as a hot molten blob before water formed. But Scripture teaches earth was created cool from the start because it was enveloped in a blanket of water (Genesis 1:2,9-10; 2 Peter 3:5).

To believe that the entire universe was once compressed into an infinitely dense point before exploding requires far more faith than it takes to believe that the Great Creator made it all as He says in Genesis. To believe in the Big Bang requires a true leap of faith.

Contrary to current scientific speculation, there was no Big Bang in the beginning. Yahweh created heaven and earth on Creation Day One by His word (Psalm 33:6,9).

Ongoing grounding in God’s Word is vital to avert the danger of being deceived. Christians who believe the Big Bang are essentially concluding that what God said in Genesis is not true.

There was NO originating Big Bang. The Great Creator, Yahweh, the God of the Bible is the Beginner.

Is there a better theory than the Big Bang for the origin of the universe? Yes. The Bible give a clear explanation.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them. (Exodus 20:11)
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host. . . . For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. (Psalm 33:6,9)
All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. (John 1:3)
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things have been created through Him and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)

  2. I really enjoy your blogs and they seem to always give me new perspectives. I do have a question if you could help me understand. What is the difference between the great light created in verse 3 and the one created in verse 16? I’ve heard several opinions but I’m interested in your’s.

  3. Excellent article. Thanks especially for the quotes from scientists. I believe the Genesis creation account, but as I often discuss the “scientific” beginning with non-believers (to show them how much faith their position requires) .. it seems most believe in either eternal energy and matter (which blow away the laws of thermodynamics at a minimum) … or form of spontaneous generation that then compressed to become that dense singularity that “blew up” (which of course blows out the law of causality and the Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit). The quotes from scientists who are honest (about the lack of science in their science) are excellent
