So you believe that
The big bang is a theory and not fact so it doesn't prove that "moses got it right", as the OP suggests.
Wun-Yi Shu has proposed a new class of cosmological models that may fit observations of the universe better than the current big bang model.
And this model according to the professor:
...explain the increasing acceleration of the universe without relying on a cosmological constant such as dark energy, as well as solve or
eliminate other cosmological dilemmas such as the flatness problem and the horizon problem.
• Time has no beginning and no end; i.e., there is neither a big bang nor a big crunch singularity.
Did you catch that?
The Professor said that “Time has no beginning and no end” - that is a FACT relative to space and time in the cosmos.
Just like the Universe and space is infinite so is time.
But is TIME the same “thing” as the MATERIAL universe (the result of the Singularity - Big Bang)?
If yes, then I would have to agree with the Prof, that there was no Big Bang – No Singularity.
This means that many great men of science including Einstein, Hubble, Sagan made a big mistake.
Thus what Robert Jastrow, professor of astronomy and geology at Columbia University wrote is false.
“Few astronomers could have anticipated that this event—the sudden birth of the Universe—would become a proven scientific fact, but
observations of the heavens through telescopes have forced them to that conclusion.”
COBE team leader George Smoot remarked:
“What we have found is evidence for the birth of the universe.”
Carl Sagan said in Cosmos:
“At the beginning of this universe, there were no galaxies, stars or planets, no life or civilizations.”
He refers to the change from that state to the present universe as
“the most awesome transformation of matter and energy that we have been privileged to glimpse.” - COSMOS
This also will include the Bible when it said that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” - Gen 1:1
But if No, then the evidence provided by the great minds of Science stands to be true and accurate.
That is E = m c 2
Astrophysicist Josip Kleczek explains the formula simply as the:
"Most and possibly all elementary particles may be created by materialization of energy.”
This also proves that Bible is accurate – that the heavens, the material universe had a beginning.
So what say you? Is time the same as the material universe (the result of the Big Bang)?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Although, the Big Bang answers many question as the beginning of the universe, it does not answer other things.
One of it is - what is supposed to have caused the big bang itself?
Man with his sophisticated instruments will continue to struggle to find the real answer to this question sadly though when they finally find it they
will come to same conclusion as the man Moses 3500 years ago who said that:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” - Gen 1:1 NASB
So, what say you?
