Big-Bang! Big-Nonsense!

How can a theory such as the “Big-Bang” hold ANY credence?

That theory is an immense invention of unproven assumptions! This is currently being taught in schools and universities around the world! These astronomical hypotheses have been devised to provide a “NATURAL” explanation of how the universe came into existence, not a supreme being! My first question is “who is the banger?” My second question is where did the particles or matter come from to bang? I am not a believer in the Big Bang as I know our Sovereign God ABBA created it ALL! Maybe academia should not make up theories and teach them as “fact”? Huh?

God Bless

  1. Hugh Ross is an old earther however has been caught in many compromising statements. I say he is a heretic. My issue with church fathers is that I can read what they have to say, however once they contradict scripture I will always go to the book and get God’s Word on it. When YOM is written with a number it is not a long period of time. The science problems with a young earth belief are and have been addressed. The Word of God says 24 hour periods. Thank you for your opinions! God Bless!

  2. Sigh, you’re not going the type to even bend when talking to another Christian on exegesis. That does not bode well. Sola Scriptora doesn’t mean nobody else can help you read it. Scripture is abused left and right.

    Anyways YAM can mean:
    1) a portion of the daylight hours (2) the entire daylight segment of a twenty-four-hour day, (3) a twenty-four-hour day, and (4) a long but finite time period

    Per Francis Brown, S. R. Driver, and Charles A. Briggs, The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon (1906; repr., Peabody, MA: Hendrickson) 1997

    There is no reason that a numerical qualify forces the meaning to be 24 hours, there is no term epoch in Hebrew… wait there is… its YAM.

    Also, the days in Hebrew run evening (god working) then day (man responding).

    Hugh Ross in his book a “A Matter of Days” takes it further pointing out of the occurrences of YAM that all 249 uses of YAM as a singular day are in the context of human history and activity…

    Genesis is referring to God and his activity.

    I would also wonder if the festivals play into Gen 1… speaking of which, do the 8 days of Booths reference the 8 days spent by Moses wandering? (crdt Gleason Archer)

    SO, add the Hebrew Scripture, Word Studies, the early fathers, and the fact YEC have all sorts of science problems… that is a HUGE witness that maybe, just maybe, you need to not accept my view but re-read the passage and let the Holy Spirit clarify it for you.

  3. Personally I prefer the scripture as my final authority, what Church Fathers say are simply human and fallible. In light of the Sabbath “God Rested” “Rested” meaning that day is complete. The Hebrew word for day in Genesis 1 is yom. First point the vast majority of its uses in the Old Testament it means a literal day; and where it doesn’t, the context makes this clear. Second,Yom is defined the first time it is used in the Bible in its two literal senses: the light portion of the light/dark cycle and the whole light/dark cycle. As well, yom is used with “evening” and “morning.” Everywhere these two words are used in the Old Testament, either together or separately and with or without yom in the context, always meaning a literal evening or morning of a literal day. Third, yom is modified with a number: one day, second day, third day, etc., which everywhere else in the Old Testament indicates literal days. Fourth, yom is defined literally in Genesis 1:14 in relation to the heavenly bodies.

  4. You should read Augustine and Origin on the matter, (Scripture FIRST, then tradition if it agrees with scripture) the early Church didn’t hold to it; why should we?

    Origen and Augustine are a bit dated, but Von Rad, I think I heard John Goldengay said he didn’t in class…

    No what I think you won’t find is anyone saying that Genesis isn’t supposed to be read in light of the sabbath cycle… God doesn’t “rest,” etc.

    I could see if I can run down Brueggemann on my campus and ask him….

  5. One of the best Hebraists in the world, James Barr of Oxford University, had written in a letter twenty years ago, “So far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Gen. 1–11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that (a) creation took place in a series of six days which were the same as the days of 24 hours we now experience (b) the figures contained in the Genesis genealogies provided by simple addition a chronology from the beginning of the world up to later stages in the biblical story.”1

  6. From the bible that had the sun and moon created on the fourth day… And runs evening to night. Days aren’t 24 hours in hebrew

  7. I agree with you…the Big Bang is not creation. I agree with you that science has no idea what the first moment is…crickets! “Let There Be Light” a “BIG – BANG would fit, however you still don’t know what the Big Bang was! What banged and who banged it as it would require a mind!! My chronology actually comes from the bible, where does yours come from?

  8. The big bang isn’t creation… its the beginning of measurable time and universal inflation. It’s an approaching zero theory, so it’s not saying what that first moment is.

    I don’t see your objection being because “let there be light” a big bang would fit…

    I think it’s because it doesn’t fit your chronology, which wasn’t proposed till the 17th century. By a Catholic.

    Maybe you should read gen 1 with a focus on the sabath, and you’ll see it is very deep indeed.
