• Why did Ptolemy's theory cause problems for the church?
• What is the big secret concerning the "Age" of the earth?
• Why do many scientists reject the use of design in explaining origins?
The seemingly absurd idea that all matter, energy, space, and time once exploded from a point of extreme density has captured the imagination of scientists and laypersons for decades. The big bang has provided a central teaching for the eons of time of "cosmic evolution", undermining the history and cosmology of the Bible.
It is a theory that fails, even violating the very physical laws on which it is purportedly based.
In this easy-to-read format, authors Alex Williams and John Hartnett explode this naturalistic explanation for the universe, and show that the biblical model provides a far better explanation of our origins. This fully indexed, illustrated analysis of the big bang theory is an invaluable help in understanding and countering a worldview that is as chaotic and destructive as its name implies.
This powerful resource shows that the big-bang theory cannot explain the universe, but the Bible can, so Christian leaders no longer have reason to insert big-bang theory into Genesis. It includes within its pages:
• Easy summaries of all the main points
• A brief history of cosmology
• The big bang model, including origins of stars, planets, and life
• The biblical creation model, including the views of Moses and Jesus
• The errors in evolutionary time scales
In modern times, the Bible has become increasingly disconnected from most Christians’ understanding of the real world. Cosmology — the way we think about the universe — has come to be totally dominated by secular beliefs, such as the Big Bang. Many Christians, including prominent leaders, have therefore felt compelled to “reinterpret” the Bible in the light of big-bang thinking.
To its credit, the Big Bang is an interesting and worthwhile scientific theory, and it is the best candidate that materialists have been able to put forward to this point to try to explain the universe without God, but it is demonstrably inadequate, to say the least. Big-bang theory cannot explain the origin of the universe or of the significant objects within it (i.e., galaxies, stars, planets, and people). Big-bang theory contains no credible or consistent naturalistic cause to explain what we see. Dismantling the Big Bang reveals these scientific and philosophical weaknesses at the core of big-bang thinking and the contradictions to which they lead. Written on a level that laypeople can understand, it comparatively shows the intellectual superiority of the history of the universe given in the Bible as a basis for our thinking about the cosmos. We need to rediscover how to think about the universe in the only way that makes sense — from God’s perspective, in the light of the history given in His Word.
