The logic in most of these assumptions is so flawed. It's the same with evolution (the Big Bang is in the religion of evolution anyways, under cosmic evolution), people see something and their interpretations, although seemingly plausible at first, come to a halt when faced with new data.
It also takes a hell of a lot more 'faith' to believe some omnipotent being burst everything into existance.First off, no, it requires a ton more faith to believe the universe came from nothing, then expanded for no reason, then stars were born out of a chemical reaction, then chemicals were fused to create new elements, which required stars to begin with, and then certain rocks were rained upon for millions of years, and those rocks developed an atmosphere (by the way, did you know life cannot be "created" in an oxygen environment, yet it requires oxygen to live?), and after millions more years, the primordial soup that was created (from the rain, remember?) spawned the first "simple celled organisms" (which are not simple, at all - they are more complex than most cells today), which grew up to be more complex living organisms, which then went on to become our ancient, ancient ancestors.
All of this, by chance and time. That.. requires a great deal of faith.
Waited thousands or millions of years, depending on your particular view of Christianity, and then decided "Whoa now, my creation is going how I wanted it to go. I had better send myself, claiming to be my own son, to Earth and have myself tortured and killed. That way, I can forgive everyone's sin. (This sin, by the way, was my fault as well. Since they were my creations, I knew what they were going to do, so I threw a mystical tree into the mix, and forbade them to eat from it. Even though I knew they would, only so I could kick them out, and then follow the whole 'sacrifice' myself thing.Compromising between Evolution and Christianity is not Christianity at all. It's a foolish attempt at trying to bring "the best of both worlds" into one, and it doesn't follow the Biblical account at all. With that belief, death would have come before sin, a clear contradiction to the account of Genesis and the fall of man.
But, it does make perfect sense if you think about it (well, you will deny it, so I guarantee you won't believe what I say, but you could say the same I suppose) - God's whole intent is to create a perfect family, and righteousness can only come from those with the ability to disobey. Through one man, came death and sin - the eating of a fruit. Through one man, comes life and salvation - the eating of his flesh/blood. It's through a choice, a decision, and based entirely on love.
Yeah, you're right.. the big bang doesn't make sense.
Yea, it doesn't. At all. Consider the law of conservation of angular momentum.
