The beginning of the universe and the beginning of all life is unknown to us, there is no real proof as to what occurred that could cause the birth of our universe. The big bang is a theory that is thought to be very probable to kick start our universe yet however some stay closed minded toward it. People are allowed to have their own beliefs but in an article from Answer in Genesis they purposely and ignorantly ignore any possible theories on why the big bang may have occurred and only state that the bible has all the answers. They purposely bash and look down on the possibility that the big bang took place at all.
In the article, the author claims to have debated Bill Nye the science guy, telling him the same information as in the article, that the beginning of the universe is not unknown and that the answer is in the bible. He proceeds to say that the big bang is not even a theory in its own right as there is no proof that it could have happened in the first place and that its origins was only thought of to please man’s aesthetic belief that the universe was made without a god. The author does throw in there that some Christians believe that god had a part in the big bang but then proceeds to bash them as well stating that those who believe that are only supporting a pagan belief and are going against the bible. The author is clearly biased and does not believe in any science and only wishes to keep a closed mind about the possibilities, instead only thinking that the bible has all the answers.
In a separate article it explains the big bang theory more in depth stating that it is the leading explanation on how the universe started. The universe started with a small singularity and it continued to inflate over the next 13.8 billion years into the universe we know of today. The author states that this theory was found using mathematical models and formulas in order to get what is known about the big bang today. Even though these scientist believe in the big bang they don’t out right say that this is the only possibility and this is exactly how the universe started. Instead the author keeps an open mind unlike the previous article and states that this theory may not be true and other explanations can arise. Everyone is allowed to believe in what they choose to regardless if there is evidence or not at the moment. However it is not right to bash another belief because it does not match up with your own belief whether it is religion or science, they wish for the same thing, to know how the universe started.
