Science is currently God’s most powerful friend. Since the Enlightenment, when rationalism was embraced and empiricism became the dominant belief system in pursuit of the ultimate truths about the cosmos, science and religion have been at odds.
It appeared at one time that any scientific breakthrough would weaken the authority and give ammunition to atheists. It is ironic that science has improved scientific analysis techniques and scientists now have more access to experiments and observations than ever before.
This allows us to accept the existence of a creative God based on these facts and ideas. At the beginning of the 20th century, scientists believed that the cosmos was eternal and permanent.
This meant that the universe’s space, mass, and energy existed without a defined beginning from the beginning. When astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered in 1929 that the cosmos is expanding, this assumption of the universe’s permanence was questioned. He concluded that the cosmos does not exist forever and that it had an origin after complex mathematical computations.
This idea was rejected by most astronomers of the time, including Albert Einstein who thought it absurd that the cosmos could have a beginning. Sir Frederick Hoyle, a well-known British astronomer, was an outspoken opponent of this theory, mockingly referring to the origin of the universe as “the big bang.”
Ironically, both the mainstream accepted hypothesis about the formation of the universe and the astronomical community at the time embraced this absurd term.
COBE’s investigations verified in 1992 that the universe had a beginning, a great bang of light and energy that erupted from nothing and produced everything in it.
Robert Jastrow, an astronomer, says that the image of the big bang shows the explosion of a cosmic hydrogen bomb. The cosmic bomb’s detonation marks the beginning of the cosmos. The conclusion states that everything in the cosmos came from nothing.
Astronomers and physicists have shown scientific evidence that God created all of the cosmos, for the first time in human historical history.
