Christians, the heart of the issue really comes down to the question
"Does the concept of a Big Bang type creation event undermine or
support Scripture?" This article endeavors to investigate these
1. Dr. Hugh Ross,
astrophysicist, pastor and Christian scientific apologist states the "Big
Bang Theory' is totally in agreement with the Genesis account of creation.
See Dr. Ross on YouTube (below):
2. A possible explanation for the harmony of the Biblical Genesis account
of creation and the modern cosmological Big-Bang Theory has been described
in an editorial in CosmicFingerprints.com
3. A previously posted article in Buzzle.com articulates the compatability of the "Big Bang Theory" with the
"Genesis Creation Account"
The Standard Model – the Big-Bang hypothesis -
is 100% compatible to the Biblical narrative in the opening chapters of
Genesis. Time dilation and time stretching make it possible for the 6-day
creation period of Genesis to be the same as the eighteen billion year
creation period of the Standard Model. God's perception of time is different
to our perception of time. In Psalm 90:4 we read "A thousand years in Your
eyes are as a day that passes" and from Einstein's General theory of
Relativity (1916) we learn that gravity affects the space-time continuum, in
other words the changes in gravity affect the rate at which time passes.
Time is not absolute. Time is as flexible as the available differences in
the force of gravity, and the speed of motion across a boundary that
separates the observer from the observed. Relativistic time dilation, the
difference in perceived time, makes the six-day creation period of Genesis
compatible with the eighteen billion years creation period of Cosmology.
