The Big Bang – Discussion Question (Samantha Perez)

  • Knowing that there is such a contradiction between the religious view of creation and the scientific view of creation, what kind of impact do you think this has on people when talking about their faith (if they even practice anything at all)? Is the evidence strong enough to make them not believe in a God anymore? Why or why not?

One response to “The Big Bang – Discussion Question (Samantha Perez)

  1. The universe was created in a Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago, is still expanding today, and billions of years from now it might recollapse by its own gravity with a Big Crunch (or continue expanding forever, Big Chill). Moslems say that this is what Allah says. The Quran says that on the first day of creation, God made the heavens and the Earth meshed together, tight and compact (Big Bang), continues to expand it into the universe we know today and at the last day God will recompress it into its original state (Big Crunch). About the first day (Big Bang), Allah says:

    [Quran 21.30] Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the Earth were meshed together then We ripped them apart? And then We made of water everything living? Would they still not believe?
    In the Quran the Heavens expanded from a single point.
