  • How about a Supreme Being creating the Universe using many processes including the Big Bang?
  • My own thought - the big bang. But a more important question to me is "Why?" If there is a supreme being then why create a whole universe just for our edification? It would be vain, in this instance, to think of ourselves as the only experiment in the petrie dish. So believing in God increases the chances of there being other intelligent lifeforms elsewhere. If there is no supreme being then why have a universe at all? Matter does not increase or decrease in size, and energy (overall) is constant with entropy tending to zero. In these circumstances I have to ask what came before the universe and what will there be afterwards? In a continuum, where time as we perceive it is meaningless, can there be existence without point, or are we just a freak chance. How many accidents had to happen for us to exist through scientific probabilities? So, while I am inclined against believing, personally, in any supreme being, I also want a justification as to why the universe exists without purpose. And for any budding scientists "It just does" means "Take it on faith", which brings us back to religion.
  • the hadron super collider mabobby will help scientists figure this out, so you can keep up to date on now.
  • E=Mc2 Nothing is ever lost - matter to energy and energy to matter - eternally. Science does not ever try to explain absolute beginnings (Abiogenesis). It does pick up after the first minuscule fractions of the first second and follows the process through from there.
  • Theoretically, who lit the fuse? Before the Big Bang did matter even exist? ADDITION: These are questions. Don't you have any theories? What was the state of the universe before the big bang? If there was a bang, wasn't there a "before"?
  • i am a believer of god so of course i say god
  • Oprah.
    • Mr PantsFellDown
      ah see, yep, there ya are, Hey look under your seats folks, you'll find some chocolate, as a gift! :D
  • How could something just bang and it's there. That doesn't make sense to me. Of course something that also confuses me is God not having a creator or a beginning. Maybe that is because everything on earth has beginning. But I don't believe that one day Bang! Here's the Earth! Don't make sense.
  • Definately God!!!!!! Read the bible and go to church it's good for ya!
  • I believe it was GOD
  • big bang.. if a supreme being created the universe what created the supreme being?
  • It's possible God built the universe starting with a Big Bang..... Genesis 1: "3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. "
  • Big bang.
  • The argument will roll on and on like the chicken and the egg. Before the big bang something had to exist to go bang so who made that?
  • God, that's a big bang!
  • Both? Possibly? I don't think the two theories are mutually exclusive. Science just pokes around in God's toolbox.
  • Big bang.
  • I believe it was God. Maybe He got some of it started with a bang, but I find it very hard to believe that all the wonderous miracles in nature just came about as a result of a big bang. People can say what they will (myself included), different people have different theories and beliefs, but no one REALLY knows for certain.
  • How the universe started is definitely a tough question, but there may be a good answer out there somewhere. But when you say a "god" did it it raises even more questions and complicates the scenario exponentially. How did god get there? If someone is gonna use the argument energy had to start somewhere so the universe definitely has a intelligent designer, you have to use that same argument ON the intelligent designer. but of course there's a simple argument any theist will use at this point: "he is all powerful" ya... I'd rather find and ponder real answers than satisfy my personal beliefs. Regardless of comforting the idea may be.
  • [Edited] Since gremlins, ghosts, goblins, and gods are products of the fertile human imagination, it must have been the Big Bang. Actually, scientists don't know what "created" the universe. The word "creation" isn't part of the vocabulary of science. If you're interested in creation, whatever you imagine it to be, you would need to consult some religious text. Scientists don't know what happened before the BB, nor what happened in the first 10^(-43) second (called the Planck Epoch). In fixed decimal notation, 10^(-43) second looks like this: 0.000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 1 second http://wikinfo.org/index.php/Timeline_of_the_Big_Bang Maybe God knows what happened during the Planck Epoch. But he isn't telling.
  • God is creation, God created the big bang.
  • God. Read Genesis 1 in the Bible. (Maybe there was a big bang when he did it.) Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day. 14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [b] and over all the creatures that move along the ground." 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
  • Scientist can recreate the events that occured at the big bang 100th of a millisecond just before it, they to this day have never established what happened at the onset of it. Theory's continue in physics, from big bang's being the result of larger, theoretical "White Hole"s at their death, creating a "birth" of a new universe, or a "Multiverse" were "big bangs" are commen place, and happen all the time in our vast "Cosmic Landscape" inside a "Multiverse" . We'll one day know how the universe began, perhaps far in the future be able to recreate and create one ourself's, it's not that outlandish considering the technology we discover is forever amazing.
  • the way i understand it is this...the "big bang" was the beginning of the physical universe...kabbalah teaches the most sensible "pre-big bang" theory that i know of..."in the beginning was nothing; nothingness became endless; then nothingness became aware of itself"... so, to me, whatever energy or thought-form was originally "nowhere" became aware, and thus the physical universe began with the big bang...billions of years later people try to understand that in simplest terms, and call that original energy "god"...
  • That is easy....God was cleaning his gun one day and then BANG......;)
  • We'll find out from the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) if it doesn't swallow us all in it hahaha
  • The 'big bang' occurred because the mass of something increased so much it exploded (similar to a Super Nova but trillions of times stronger). For those that say there is no God and the 'Big Bang' started everything, then I ask "Where did that particle come from that started the 'Big Bang'?"
  • Universe word that derives from two latin words Uni and Verse Uni meaning one and Verse meaning spoken sentance. so Universe=one spoken sentance "God spoke "let there be light."" one spoken sentance universe creation!
  • ya. terrorist training camps are full of atheist. You have it completely backwards, but I think this argument is over. Time for me to go commit some atrocities. http://exchristian.net/exchristian/2002/10/how-many-people-have-been-killed-by.php
  • I vote big bang
  • why can't God have created the big bang?
  • Whaddabout God bangin'?! ;-)
  • Sure. I'm watching it now. Sadly its like 2 hours ...................................... but i'll watch it anyways (and will comment after). and blessed, you watched this clip but not the clip I proposed? sad... sad sad sad... "I can't spare half an hour"... sure you cant. You're extremely biased for someone who claims to be looking at things from all sides. well heres a "debate" between creationist vs. evolutionist. But like your clip it is excruciatingly long. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT3NZTGCtrI Before (if) you watch that, please watch this one first, which is a LOT shorter than the video noonespecial shared: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xor_vvzAMVw once again, a good example of why I am an anti-theist. and I find "Atheism being responsible for human atrocities." one of the most backward statements I have heard in a long time. Christianity was FORCED onto people for centuries, anyone who refused to believe it was MURDERED. and the amount of deaths caused by Christianity being spread is probably in the MILLIONS. but its not just christianity that spreads its poison, but all religions. You don't see any atheist in terrorist training camps I can promise you that much. and I am inclined to ask, why don't you believe in the teachings of islam? in buddhism? in zues, thor or the flying spaghetti monster? You cant PROVE they don't exist or are false. Its because you are in America and the people around you have a great influence on your beliefs.
  • Science doesn't say that the big bang created, the universe, but that it was how the universe began. A big difference. The view of science is that we do not know what created the universe or how it came into existence. All we do know is that about 13.7 billion years ago there was a singularity, which expanded into the universe we know today, and which continues to expand. Religion, however, does claim to know how the universe was created, and claims that it was the work of a supernatural entity. I know which I believe.

  • Quantum mechanics & Gravity dictate if in fact there was a big bag we'd have a big black whole pull the entire of the universe together and we could here it. No such Quantun Singularity exist. Next question.
  • It was God who created a Big Bang... :)
  • It could be both.....
  • well, God had a great big bash of a party that week
  • God created the Big Bang.
  • It was the same guys that invented the Bible
  • The Big Bang. We created God.
  • @noone, I dont believe in christianity anymore after doing lots of studying. @blessed - "owned" means it was a one sided argument the entire time, most of the points I made you just ignored. This has gone on for way too long. Neither of you are free thinkers, and you see authority as truth, rather than truth as the authority.
  • GOD DID HOW CAN AN EXPLOSION MAKE EVERYTHING LAST TIME I CHECKED EXPLOSIONS DESTROY THINGS
  • There is proof and scripture that He exists. We all have the same amount of fingers, toes, body parts in the same spot, etc.. The Bible tells us things that happened, are happening and will happen. And so far it has been correct with no doubt in my mind. God exists, period.
  • The evidence points to a big bang, but what started the big bang? One possible explanation could be some kind of god.
  • The Big Bang did not create the universe: it's merely a description of how it began. Saying that it created the universe is like saying you were created by screaming, scrawny, blood & bile covered, 5-14 lbs infant. As a matter of logic, either "the world" (meaning the entire natural order) always existed from eternity past, or, if it had a beginning, it had to have been created from something outside of and prior to itself, since there is no effect without a cause. Current cosmology holds that the natural order itself came into being at the Big Bang, meaning that there must be something beyond the natural order that brought it about - but that does not necessitate a personal God as a creator: it could be simply a higher (or substructural) order. But whatever it is, it is outside the observable universe/natural order that it created/spawned.
  • I did it. *feigns humble look* *says shucks and kicks dirt, golly*
  • I agree on both! God created the big bang!
  • click on this link... It is the Milky Way Galaxy... Our Solar System planets revolve around the 'sun's location'. The 'sun' is much larger in size than the largest of the planets... This is the galaxy in which the sun and the planets are within. There are over 100 Billion 'KNOWN' galaxies so far.... http://www.atlasoftheuniverse.com/galaxy.gif And: For many years scientists have studied our own solar system. But until the last few years, we knew of no other solar systems. This may seem surprising, as the Sun is one of about 200 billion stars (or perhaps more) just in the Milky Way galaxy alone. https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/review/dr-marc-space/solar-systems-in-galaxy.html So there might be over 200 Billion 'Suns' in this Galaxy alone with over 100 Billion Galaxies which are known. That comes out to 200 Billion 'suns' (times) 100 Billion Galaxies... for the possible number of 'suns' in the known 100 Billion Galaxies... One explosion at the beginning of 'time' sure did create a whole bunch of stuff... amazing..
