Starting where I left off last week, we were looking at who God is. Does He even exist? And if He does exist, what does that mean for our world and me personally? If He doesn’t exist how does that change things?
These are important questions that each of us need to ask. Where do we find evidence for or against the existence of God? What about the big bang theory that says that there was just a big explosion and everything was created out of nothing? In simple terms The Big Bang is a scientific theory about how the universe started, and then made the stars and galaxies we see today. The universe began as a very hot, small, and dense superforce (the mix of the four fundamental forces), with no stars, atoms, form, or structure (called a “singularity”).
Or how about evolution that says we evolved from apes? Darwinism is a theory of biological evolution developed by the English naturalist Charles Darwin (1809–1882) and others, stating that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.
And then there is the Bible, which tells us God created the heavens and the earth.
So how do we determine which view is correct? Can we think critically about this issue? Is there scientific evidence for any or all of these views?
I know. I know. I keep asking questions, but rarely answer any of them. That is about to change. See you next week.
