About this creation
Probably the most significant astronomical discovery to the world of philosophy, was that the universe is expanding. No longer can it be said that the universe always existed. In today’s society, most people put their faith in one of two prevalent views of universe’s origin: God, or the ‘big bang’.
But what is the big bang? Atheists suppose that the entire universe was once compressed into a single, massive ball of matter. Let’s envision this ball for just a moment. We’ve seen compressed balls of matter before, black holes, whose gravity light can’t even escape. Can you imagine the gravitational power of a black hole containing every star, planet , and galaxy out there? Now let me ask you one more question: Is it rational to believe that such a strongly bound entity could have just expanded against its own incalculable gravity? Certainly not.
At this point an atheist might say that there was something else out there which caused it to expand. What an infinitely powerful force it would take to overcome the attractive strength of all the matter that has ever existed, and impossibly precise. Precise? Yes, so precise that it could separate the matter into particles small enough to reform without evidence of ever having been squashed together in a black hole, yet large enough for their attractive force to allow them to come together at all, and yet small enough again that their inertia from hurtling through space at incredible speed could somehow be overcome by the little bit of gravitational power each particle has. Is this rational to believe? Not in the least.
To deal with this, atheistic scientists have said that the matter of the big bang separated irregularly, leaving clusters of particles here and there. How plausible is this? The idea contradicts the very nature of an explosion, in which everything moves directly away from the blast. It requires matter to be blow apart and then spontaneously change course and travel parallel to other particles. Can a speck of matter perform such uncaused and intelligent behavior? No.
These clouds of material also had to divide the matter in such a way that a planet could form, and then, out of the same cloud of particles, a blazing star could appear next. Every kind of astronomical entity, each with their own complex patterns of building-blocks, had to somehow materialize from the same group of particles with only their gravitational fields to guide the construction.
The force powering the big bang had to be impossibly precise in still more aspects. The rate of expansion of the universe has been called a fundamental constant, and changing it by one part in a quintillion (10^18) would be catastrophic. What is one part in a quintillion? Consider this: if you piled up all the world’s beaches, you would have about a quintillion grains of sand. Take one grain out of that stack, and the universe collapses on itself. An antigravity force has to found to be present in space, and it’s value has been termed the cosmological constant. Change it by one part in a trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion (10^120) and life cannot exist. Is it sane to believe that a value that finely tuned could arise by chance? Could there be anything more absurd? Perhaps that this fairy tale is believed by so many.
Only an all-powerful, omniscient, omnipresent Creator could give rise to a universe so complex and so perfectly tuned for our existence as this one.


1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.

11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures,

and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

Chapter 2: Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. NIV (New International Version)



The universe could never have begun with a chance explosion, and life couldn’t have been brought about by randomly connecting proteins. Atheists say that proteins formed together into cells, which was believable in Darwin’s day when cells were thought to be nothing more than tiny blobs. They’re not. Harvard college, a liberal think tank, created a video showing the inner workings of a cell. The videos show sophisticated interacting parts that require purpose and intelligence, each one vital to the cell.

Quoting Asad . Would that be OoL's writing of the biblical references?
I don't mind what he said in support of creationism; it's just that he didn't really understand the other side and tried to attack it with some very underdeveloped arguments. I think that people should try to understand different points of view rather than blindly and reasonlessly attack them.

very nice job here. for those who believe contrary to God's existence, I only ask the question, how do we exist? who/what created the universe? if you say the big bang, which began with a small ball of matter/energy/whatever, where did that come from? and supposing that that matter just somehow existed and the big bang happened by fluke/coincidence/whatever, where did life come from? life does not come from matter. and if you say it came from an outside source, where/how did life get on that outside source? it all points back to a creator of life.

Want to know something interesting? When the waters are separated and the vault is created, the Bible says that both the birds AND the sun and stars are in that vault. Unless this is because of translation, it provokes some interesting ideas. (such as a large amount of water in space somewhere)

Quoting Asad . I understood none of that.
I'm a Christian but not a creationist: I believe in evolution and big bang cosmology, but I also believe in God and know Jesus as my savior. The reason I don't believe in six-day creation is because it makes Christians appear anti-scientific in the eyes of non-Christians. I've met people who basically know nothing about Christianity except the opposition to evolution, which makes me realize that we need to put more focus on the Gospel message. Whether God made the universe in 6 days or 13 billion years makes no difference whatsoever; but whether Christ died and rose again effects eternity.

Amen! Creation is definitely the most reliable choice to believe in. It's recorded in the Bible, and the Bible is accurate. Why? Countless predictions have happened with unprecedented accuracy. Also, evolution is scientifically impossible. The probability of a simple cell coming together on its own is 1 in 10 to the 200th power. The standard for an event being possible, scientifically, is the probability of 1 in 10 to the 50th power. Besides, it takes faith to believe in either side. I'd rather put my trust in a creative, loving God than all the worthless scientific theories in the world. I totally agree with you. Thanks for posting this!!

Quoting Bob the inconceivably invincible " two prevalent views of universe’s origin: God, or the ‘big bang’." is a false dichotomy. I can think of no greater display of God's power than the big bang, or than a simple set of physical laws which gives rise to this incredible universe we see today. But my main problem with creationism is that it's a superfluous doctrine which makes us Christians appear anti-scientific. I feel like it drives away some people who would otherwise be open to the Gospel. All the same, this is a well-made depiction of one of my favorite Biblical passages.

You asked me to tell you in which points I believe you were incorrect, so I will. In sentences 1, 2, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 30, 31, 32 and 33 (I probably got lost in counting sentences, but if there are 33 sentences in the first part, the numbers reflect my opinion. Please also note that I believe all the second part is wrong. Third note is that a lot sentences I do not agree with are absolutely wrong because of generalizations). I really do not want to argue about this here and do not take this as an insult (people too often do and I get into trouble for that apparently...), but also avoid generalizing the world into christians and atheists, or generalizing atheists as evolutionists. Last of all, as an evolutionists I can assure you that the big bang is not a part of the evolutionary theory. No offense, bro (no really, no offense - a lot of MOCpages is looking at me negatively enough that the slightest misinterpretation might get me banned, like that yellow box below a to-be-written comment says - Inappropriate comments will be deleted before anyone sees them, and your account may be deleted.

Quoting Nicholas Dreadman Your counter-argument boils down to " if you personally are unfamiliar with it, it doesn't exist." Surely you can recognise that that is a rubbiśh argument. Sure, we don't know anything about the brane universe, or if it even exists. It's just a theory. The thing about science is that we can recognise theories as theories, rather than just reading a really old book and calling it indisputable fact. We can acknowledge that it's důmb to assume we know everything, or have an explanation for everything.
I don't know how you boiled down my counter argument to what you did, my original comment said nothing like that. I will stop here, as 1st John verse 11 tells me so. And also because God told me to read that verse, I feel compelled to obey.

Very nicely done! Putting all of the scientific proof that the universe could not have been created without a Creator aside, one can deduct that there is a God simply by reason. If someone believes that the universe was made possible by the Big Bang, well that is certainly plausible. BUT, something had to have caused that; a series of causes cannot go on infinitely without someone originally having put them into motion. So the question to ask someone who denies God's existence is to ask them to explain the cause of the universe's existence. Back-tracking, someone might say that the unviverse was caused by an astronomical explosion of gases. Certainly plausible, but the question is, what caused the gases? They might say the mixing of matter and other gases. And what caused those? The might say the disturbance of atoms or molecules forming. So, as you can see, an atheist will eventually back themselves in a corner and have no other rational reason to explain this except to admit that there is indeed a God. So, a very excellent creation by you, Asad. Love it. 5/5! :-)

Awesome job. Congratulations to you for presenting God's Creation in a clear by-the-Book way and also for presenting Evolution for what it is: Man's desperate attempt to show that they are their own gods without need of the One True God, Creator and Savior. God didn't do a half-hearted job with His creation, He made it beautiful, unique and amazingly complex and wonderful. No random act of chance could ever conceive such spectacular creatures and objects. Could a tornado cause the construction of the White House? Even if all the lumber, masonry, nails, rebar, etc. were lying in neat piles nearby? Evolutionists have neither a tornado nor a pile of materials waiting to be put to use, and God doesn't need them. God bless you for your stand. ~Promar~

Your little story is riddled with misinformation. The singularity that exploded into the universe did not consist of matter, or explode into matter. It consisted of energy, which later became matter through e=mc squared. It also didn't exist before exploding, as is is the expansion of space and time, and there is therefore no time before the Big Bang. String theory suggests that the Big Bang was an explosion resulting from the collision of many-dimensional "branes". Certainly though, no physicist would claim to know the origin the Big Bang, nor would they claim to know anything about the universe pre-microwave background. Gravitational waves are starting to give clues, but they are near-indetectable. Don't dismiss a theory because you have next to no understanding of it.
