Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
Scientists are still spending millions attempting to discover the origin of the universe. Is the Bible too simple for sophisticated minds?
“No philosophical theory which I have yet come across is a radical improvement
on the words of Genesis, that ‘in the beginning God made Heaven and Earth.’”
- C. S. Lewis
A recent sighting by BICEP2 [Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization 2]
detected a distortion in microwave radiation which seemingly pervades all the cosmos.
Some scientists believe this single observation conclusively proves three theories—
1) a Big Bang and an inflationary universe produced a series of gravitational waves;
2) this happened in the first billionth of a trillionth of a quadrillionth of a second;
3) these faster-than-the-speed-of light events occurred 13.8 billion years ago.
It’s amazing what one observation at the South Pole has led scientists to believe!
Anyone who challenges their conclusions is considered uneducated or ignorant.
But are you and I so naïve we swallow such inferences deduced from “facts”?
What proof exists for such fantastic theories hypothesized by the scientists?
Who of these sophisticated scholars was there when the cosmos began?
All this reminds me of the atheist Ph.D. candidate who actually told me,
“In the beginning” (that sounded familiar) “there was a total vacuum.”
When asked, “then how did everything begin?”, he said “friction!”
Faith in the First Cause trumps such empty-headed foolishness.
“By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command,
that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.”
Hebrews 11:2 NLT
