Earlier in the year I read a scientific article, which clearly stated what many scientists are afraid to admit – science does not have all the answers. Sometimes all men can do is come up with good questions and postulate theories.
Sometimes we just don’t know why things are the way they are. This truth always gives scientists and researches work to do, yet it also causes a problem for people who demand answers. Sometimes there just aren’t any.
The article appeared in Discover magazine and focused on the Big Bang theory. It offered new explanations for what might have caused the creation of the universe.
In the article, the magazine admitted that scientists are just as confused as everyone else about the origins of the universe. Michael D. Lemonick wrote, “The theory has yet to yield a satisfactory answer to a key question: What made the Big Bang go bang?”
The Biblical account in Genesis seems just as plausible as a bunch of gas causing a massive explosion. The idea that a supreme God created everything from nothing is much easier to explain than what traditional science has offered mankind.
Most scientists start from the view point that there is no God. This approach doesn’t seem very scientific since they automatically eliminate a very strong possible explanation. They have built-in bias even though they may try to deny it.
The latest theories mentioned in the article suggest that something from another dimension caused the origin of the cosmos as we know it. Lemonick wrote, “What triggered the Big Bang? According to a new theory, our universe crashed into a another three-dimensional world hidden in higher dimensions…Maverick cosmologists contend that what we think of as the moment of creation was simply part of an infinite cycle of titanic collisions between our universe and a parallel world.”
Cosmologists may be able to explain the expansion of the universe. But they can’t explain where the initial building blocks for creation came from. This remains the grandest mystery of modern science. Crediting a divine being (God) with creation makes just as much sense as any other theory except the fact that modern scientists would have to then admit in the existence of God.
Scientists may continue to postulate about gases and parallel universes I will keep on believing that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
