Decades ago the brilliant physicist Albert Einstein predicted mathematically that if the Big Bang were true we should find lingering evidence. Last week, scientists reported what they believe to be some of that evidence in the form of gravity ripples in space (National Geographic, March 17, 2014).
“The long-sought observations [telescope readings], taken from Antarctica, strongly support the cosmological theory of ‘inflation,’ which explains how the early universe smoothly expanded to unimaginable vastness in the first fractional second of its existence”—the universe instantaneously came into existence from nothing (ibid.). While atheistic scientists are lauding the finding as s upport of their secular Big Bang Theory, Bible-believing scientists use this same information as proof of creation by a Creator. Physics professor Nathan Aviezer of Bar-Ilan University observed, “Throughout the centuries, creation ex nihilo [from nothing] was considered impossible, but today it is taken as scientific fact” (Times of Israel, March 19, 2014).
Science has now proven the millennia-old biblical understanding that the universe came into instantaneous existence from nothing. However, scientists will not ask the harder question, “who or what created the universe from nothing?” While the Bible is not a scientific textbook, it does provide information and answers to many deep questions of science.
