Counterpoint to evolution: the Big Bang

This final article in the Counterpoint series will deviate from presenting arguments against what has been published in Pearson/Hall’s Biology textbook and will instead present a few very basic arguments that support the biblical creation account. Before proceeding, site it is responsible to state that the counterpoint arguments against what is presented in the textbooks are not represented as being comprehensive. In order to achieve that nearly unachievable goal would require a substantial format capable of expanding ad infinitum, since new evolutionary arguments that are not bound by logic are being invented at an inconceivable rate. It is also necessary to state that the Precambrian explosion of life, as well as the RATE project that were discussed in previous parts of this series, as well as many others (such as thermodynamics) not discussed also provide strong support for the creation argument.

Creation ex nihilo – light

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

This verse is also scientifically profound and yet astonishingly simple. It begs the question: what came first? Sound waves or radiation waves? We know that waves transfer energy from one place to another.i Sound waves do this as well as radiation waves. The primary difference between the two is that light is polarized and travels transversely, and in most cases sound is not polarized and travels longitudinally.ii Continue reading

Creation ex nihilo – waters

GENESIS 1:2

…and darkness was on the face of the deep…

Verse 2 goes on to say, tadalafil “and darkness was on the face of the deep.” This was the primordial state either before God intervened or immediately after He intervened. It is possible that His presence alone created the physical conditions we are about to describe and it is also possible that this was the environment that existed prior to His presence on the scene. The assumption being made in this writing is that verse 2 is telling us about the environment that existed when God intervened. If you are an Evolutionist, thumb this is the state that would have existed prior to the Big Bang. It should be noted that the Big Bang, medical which really is a misnomer since the theory is about expansion and not explosion, occurs on Day Two and will be discussed subsequently in another work – God willing.

Gravitational waves – what they mean

Two days ago, John Kovacs, of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, claimed a momentous discovery. He said he had seen “direct evidence of cosmic inflation,” according to Mike Wall at Space.com. The New York Times picked up the story almost at once. So did Nature, to whom Kovacs has already submitted several papers. (See their announcement here.) Specifically, Kovacs says he and his team saw gravitational waves left over from the first moments of time after the Big Bang. Continue reading
