In the Beginning – Questions?
Hey everyone – I’m new to this site. Been viewing posts for a few days and thought I might as well join in the great discussions.
First – I consider myself a theist. However, I would say that I have more questions than answers. (just thought I’d get that out of the way)
Question - It appears to me that the Big Bang theory would require more faith than the creation of this world by a supernatural being. Maybe I do not fully understand the theory, but biased on my knowledge we must believe (have faith) that by random chance matter (the universe, the earth, the ability of the earth to support life, and some living creature) was all of a sudden, BANG, there. It seems to me that this flies completely in the face of both the first and second law of thermodynamics. It seems to me to be unscientific. It seems to me that this theory would require just as much, if not more, supernatural ability as creation, therefore requiring faith. This theory seems to be lacking some scientific explanation or belief in the supernatural.
On the other hand, all one must do is: 1. Believe in God and 2. Believe that this God created the universe (everything after its kind) and all existence seems to make sense. This seems to me to be easier to believe. It’s explanation is complete with the belief in supernatural.
