    For all the atheists, materialists, etc. etc...

    -------------------
    In the beginning was Nothing and Nothing created Everything. When Nothing decided to create Everything, she filled a tiny dot with Time, Chance, and Everything and had it explode. The explosion spread Everything into Everywhere carrying Time and Chance with it to keep it company. The three stretched out together leaving bits of themselves wherever they went. One of those places was the planet Earth.

    That's a pretty severe misrepresentation of cosomological theory. We've seen it all before. Science doesn't tell us what happened or what caused the Big Bang - it doesn't need to.

    Science doesn't need to explain the origin of matter?

    So you are saying there is a total lack of hypothesis or theory regarding the origin of the universe? I think you may not have as much knowledge of this subject as you attempt to convince us that you have.

    Science certainly does need to explain what caused the Big Bang. Physicists are currently trying to figure out what happened before the big bang through their equations. Kinda like backwards engineering. So far they can only theorize what conditions were like just after the big bang. But they're working hard to keep it coming and I know all of you are just as excited as I am to hear what they find!:D

    What fascinates me is the length to which these stories go to discredit scientific progress. Hey, at least there is progress.

    How amazed I was reading Genesis in highschool,
    my little mind could hardly comprehend the vastness of it all.

    On the first day God creates the heaven and earth.
    And there is darkness in the deep. Gods spirit moves over the waters.
    He then goes on to create light and divides it from the darkness.
    And calls the light day, and the darkness night.
    Fair enough, seems reasonable.

    Then he chills out for a bit, goes back to work, creates a firmament in the midst of the waters and thus shapes the heavens above and the dry earth and the wet seas beneath. So far for the second day.

    After another well deserved rest, he busies himself with the creation of grasses, seeds and trees. And all is well. Time for a nap.

    But then on the fourth day, God creates the bodies on the heavens, the sun, the moon and the stars.

    There I was, with my scientific mindset, thinking the sun was the source of our light on earth.

    Silly me.

    By the way, the waters are fascinating in their own respect.
    For nowhere does it state that God creates them.
    They were already there.

    How could this be?
    Of course, I have the answer, but I'll let you ponder it for a bit.

    Scientists do not need to explain what happened before the Big Bang to tell you what happened after. If that were true - the only acceptable scientific theory would be one which explains everything.

    There are plenty of plausible theories of what came before the Big Bang - but none convincing enough to be accepted as the truth of the matter.
