ORIGIN 3.1
Pain / pleasure
Reported in the Bible 3,000 years before science discovered it!
First paragraph in the Bible
'IN THE BEGINNING God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the spirt of God was hovering over the waters.'
(Genesis 1:1-2)

Old science was 'Steady State'

Until the 1960's, scientists held to the Steady State theory that the universe has no beginning or end in time and that the earth has always existed in one form or another. They scoffed at the Bible for saying that the earth had a beginning.

The first use of the term 'big bang' was by astronomer Fred Hoyle on a BBC broadcast in 1949 when he said: 'These theories were based on the hypothesis that all matter in the universe was created in one big bang at a particular time in the remote past.'

He argued against the theory and said was 'irrational and outside science.'

But, as a result of better telescopes and observations of the universe's constant expansion, by the 1980's the 'big bang' was the predominant theory of astronomers and astrophysicists.

Bible was right

It's only within the last 60 years that science has acknowledged that the earth has NOT ALWAYS EXISTED but rather had a formless beginning from massive external power, just as the Bible has said all along.

It's highly unlikely that any writer three thousand years ago could know about the big bang without divine revelation from the designer/creator.

Scientific comfirmation increases confidence in the Bible and provides another REASON for Christian faith.
