Order out of Chaos - How the “Big Bang Theory" Glorifies God
A popular theory among most atheist scientists is that the earth and the universe began by a massive explosion known as the “Big Bang.” Many Christians reject the Big Bang theory, saying that it negates God as the ultimate Creator of all things. We note however that God, through His unlimited foreknowledge, knew that men would be debating the origins of His handiwork. Therefore the first verse that begins the creation account in the Bible assures us that no matter what technique the Master Artist decided to use – He did it.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1).
Keeping in mind the fact that God masterfully created the heaven and earth, the Christian can entertain the “Big Bang” as a method through which God engineered the beginning of everything. In fact, the “Big Bang” actually glorifies God. Only God can ignite a massive explosion and sculpt the results into an orderly perfection. Only God can bring this kind of structured order out of the apparent chaos of an explosion.
As we look at the creation account we see that the second verse shows us that God, as the Master Chef, had placed all the ingredients needed to begin everything, in a dark, fathomless soup. –
And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. …
Here we are shown that earth's location is the starting point where God's creation recipe begins.
He then began to stir those dark waters with His Holy Spirit. –
…And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
(By the way, the ancient Jews recognized that the Spirit of God is the Spirit of the Messiah. The apostle Paul did, too. This is why he said “The Lord is that Spirit,” merging Jesus’ Spirit with God in 11 Corinthians 3:17,3. God created everything through the Messiah - Colossians 1:16, Ephesians 3:9, Hebrews 1:2, John 1:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6).
This supernatural stirring may have been circular in motion, just as any chef would initially mix a recipe's ingredients before applying the heat. The stirring continued, possibly increasing in velocity until it ignited an element in the soup, resulting in an enormous explosion. –
And God said, “Let there be light:” and there was light (verse 3).
Scientists will tell you that the Big Bang produced a great light that would last for a long time. Therefore there was light before the formation of the sun, moon and stars, perfectly following the creation account.
Now this is where we must stop and contemplate some recent scientific confirmation of this creation scenario. The Big Bang produced “microwaves” that are traceable. Over a period of twenty years three satellites were launched seeking to locate the center of the universe. The satellites were designed to trace those microwaves from the Big Bang back to the location of their origination. Guess what? The first satellite recorded that those microwaves originated from somewhere near earth’s equator.
The scientists thought that must be an error, earth cannot be the center of the universe, so they produced another satellite to correct the findings of the first. The results were the same. The microwave path directed them once again to earth.
According to an article published in the New Scientist in September 2009, the anomaly in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) was discovered in 2005 by Kate Land and Joyo Magueijo at Imperial College, London. They expected to find randomly scattered hot and cold spots, but instead they discovered that those hot and cold spots actually formed a pattern that was aligned in a particular direction. They dubbed their discovery as “The Axis of Evil” because it so undermined everything scientists believed about the universe. Prior to the discovery of the “Axis of Evil,” it was thought that the universe is the same in every direction, but if the microwaves had a “preferred direction,” all previous theories of the universe’s origins would have to be discarded.
The modern, atheistic approach to science is designed to direct us to believe that earth is just one of an innumerable multitude of planets and there is absolutely nothing special or unique about its placement in the universe. If it was that special, then it would indicate that there could be a purpose for it and then it could even lead to the notion there could be a Creator. That was unthinkable, therefore the first two satellites had to be in error.
They developed a third satellite, naming it after its inventor. The Planck Satellite as it is called, is the most technically advanced piece of machinery they could produce. They launched it with great expectations that this would be the final result correcting the findings of their previous launches.
The Planck satellite however, confirmed the results of the first two satellites, which also verifies the Biblical account. The elements that would eventually become Earth, were present in the darkness (Genesis 1:2) that would explode into the universe marking earth’s position as the starting point for it all.
Three satellites revealed a tremendous scientific discovery that refutes the theory proposed by Copernicus, that earth occupies no special place in the cosmos.
Noted physicist, Lawrence Krauss, has commented on the satellites' findings. He said:–
“But when you look at CMB map, you also see that the structure that is observed, is in fact, in a weird way, correlated with the plane of the earth around the sun. Is this Copernicus coming back to haunt us? That's crazy. We're looking out at the whole universe. There's no way there should be a correlation of structure with our motion of the earth around the sun - the plane of the earth around the sun - the ecliptic. That would say we are truly the center of the universe. The new results are either telling us that all of science is wrong and we're the center of the universe, or maybe the data is simply incorrect, or maybe it's telling us there's something weird about the microwave background results and that maybe, maybe there's something wrong with our theories on the larger scales.” ("The Energy of Space That Isn't Zero", Lawrence Krauss (2006).
In God’s infinite wisdom, He orchestrated earth’s beginning in a way that would leave trackable evidence He knew the science of the future would be able to trace. In His love and mercy for those who have rejected Him, He declared before the entire scientific community that all the previous knowledge and theories of men that they had chosen to believe was wrong.
So how did the scientific community respond? They busily began to cover up the truth. The original Planck satellite websites were removed along with other articles that confirmed the findings. The language of the original data was changed to camouflage the facts. Fortunately there were those who retained the original material. A movie was made about the satellite’s discoveries, entitled, “The Principle.” The film was made by Christians and is designed to give our Creator the glory for making us special and significant. Of course the film has been slandered, which is to be expected. I encouraged you dear reader, to seek the truth for yourself and order a copy of “The Principle.”– theprinciplemovie.com
I guess it’s cheaper and less embarrassing to maintain all the false previous theories, rather than admit they are wrong and rewrite all the text books. Trying to elaborate these new findings to a generation of children who have been raised without prayer in their schools, could propose a lot of questions most teachers would find far too uncomfortable to answer. It would present too much of a mental challenge for those who have been schooled by an atheistic science that dictates what we are to believe. But we cannot be so foolish as to discard the technical testimony of three satellites that rewrote scientific history.
Maybe someday if honesty is allowed to prevail, those who have the power to reveal the truth will ultimately find the courage and humility to accept the reality of their own findings and begin to look up at the miracle of the universe with new, reverent, born again eyes.
