Why The Big Bang Theory Makes No Sense and The Real Reason People Don't Want To Believe In Creation
Updated: Sep 28, 2022
We've heard it. We had to learn about it in school, the big bang theory—the beginning of the universe. I don't know about you, but this theory had me confused as a kid. Even before I was a Christian. It isn't logical but yet it is considered science. But those who know the Word of God know the truth.
If you were unbiased and open-minded and were to compare this theory to creation which one would you believe is most likely true?
Let's Call It For What It Is
The big bang theory is just that... a theory. It is an idea. It hasn't been proven nor disproven. But merely used to give a close explanation. It so happens that this theory, although there are others, is the top explanation of how the universe started. Let's talk about what this theory is.
The theory I grew up on was that there was nothing, to a sudden explosion, then everything came to be. It was spontaneous and random. And yet everything formed in order- the planets, stars, and galaxies.
"Although the Big Bang is often described as an 'explosion', that's a misleading image." "Around 13.7 billion years ago, everything in the entire universe was condensed in an infinitesimally small singularity, a point of infinite denseness and heat. Suddenly, an explosive expansion began, ballooning our universe outwards faster than the speed of light."
This leaves many questions. If the universe was condensed how did it become that way? Isn't space cold? What caused it to heat up? And it doesn't end there.
The Bible tells us all we need to know in the first few sentences of the book of Genesis.
How it all Started
"In the beginning, God created the skies and the land." There you have it. The answer to how the universe began. Simple and reasonable, right? Not to some. In fact, it's not enough to prove anything.
Suppose you want proof that there is a Creator. That's easy. Look at everything around you. Look at nature, animals, and the complexity of human biology. The evidence of God is in all creation.
God has always been around. Sure you could make an argument, "If God exists then who created Him?" Below is a video of Dr. Kent Hovind explaining this question so well. I recommend watching the rest of the video. If you've never seen this clip before, prepare to have your jaw dropped.
If God were to outright show Himself would the atheist still believe? No. Because seeing isn't always believing.
There are people who deny the Holocaust happened despite there being survivors and countless irrefutable evidence.
The Real Reason Atheists Won't Believe In Divine Creation
There are many reasons why someone will reject God. And it seems they are likely to accept anything that doesn't involve God. Most will say it's because there is no proof of His existence. That God cannot be seen or heard therefore He must not be real. That's contradicting as there are things that can or can't be seen, heard, or felt. For example, the air is felt but not seen. Thoughts cannot be seen, heard, or felt, yet they are real.
If something is not seen or heard it does not mean it doesn't exist.
The real reason why atheists don't want to believe there is a God is because they don't want to be held accountable. Acknowledging God's existence means they have to change everything about them. They like the way they live and don't want to change that. It may be a way to live but it's not the way.
God intended for us to live pure and holy (and blameless). The way an unbeliever lives will lead to destruction and self-caused troubles. Those that sin will always face the consequences of them. Not saying if you become a Christian problems go away but you are less likely to commit sin. And the wages for sin is death.
But let me tell you, God doesn't want you to change before coming to Him. He wants you just as you are. Then He will change you for the better. And it's not that you're a "bad" person. It's that God created us to live a certain way with a purpose. You can't fulfill that purpose living like the rest of the world.
God is Creator
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Everything is set in its place and it functions according to its purpose. And it is so because there is intelligent design behind it. Nothing spontaneous and random could have created order like that. Everything was created with intention.
And yet most people are okay with that theory. That a random explosive expansion stretched out a condensed pre-existing matter. And millions of years later we arrive to now. This comes with so many questions. And the only question atheists can counter is, "who created God?"
But it's not about answering that question. It's about taking into account who we really are- sinners. Nobody what's to be called that, no one likes the implications that come with it. But living life without God you become conformed to it and you do whatever you want. This leads to death, hell. This may make people angry or scared so it's easier to believe in science rather than a Creator.
But we know there is a God who created the heavens and the earth.
