Couple thoughts - First off, Science cannot insert God into their explanations simply because He is "inexplicible".

 

Second, Science understands that something strange happened very shortly after the singularity showed up - "compression lines" showed up in the infant Universe. If they hadn't, we would not be having this conversation because the Universe would be a big bag of elemental particles, about 1 every couple dozen cubic meters of space because there's no reason for them to have "mashed" together to form atoms, molecules, stars or planets. They dubbed this "force" The Acoustic because it behaves like sound waves compressing air.

 

This is were Science found it necessary to come up with Cosmic Strings - incredibly dense "vibrations" that would've provided the compression needed for our Universe to evolve into what it is today.

 

Religion says it was simply God's voice declairing "let there be light" that rang the infant Universe like a bell, obviating the need for Cosmic Strings that Science thus far has to admit cannot be proven either.

Big Bang Theory in the news

Message 22 of 22

Even if one accepts that the universe was created about 13 billion years ago by a "big bang,"  the next, obvious, question is what came before that.  Where did the energy and matter in the bang come from.  Science is great and I certainly want people to keep looking for answers, but it is ok to just say "we don't know and won't come up with preposterous theories until we have something concrete to report."     Otherwise, you just come off as arrogant --- " we know there is nothing supernatural involved, and man will conquer and understand everything in time."   Report it when you know it.
