How did the universe come to exist?
How big is the universe?
Is it possible for a simple single cell life form to evolve into a complex intelligent being?
If there's no scientific evidence yet to support the theory of evolution, why Darwin's face is still on the cover on most of the curriculums?
Can Faith and Science work together side-by-side? I'm not talking about Tom Cruise here, lol.
These are just a few questions that still spinning on our head.
The BIG BANG
A name for the wrong reasons
Albert Einstein added an equation, the "cosmological constant" that works like elastic force to keep the universe from overall expansion or contraction, but Abbe Georges Lemaitre, a Christian astronomer, put aside Einstein's "rubber-band force" and worked on the mathematical model of the expanding universe. In Lemaitre's mind, the universe was growing bigger, and if so, then the universe has to be bit-by-bit smaller back in time, and would have been at its dot-size kinda tiny thingy.
Believing this, Lemaitre worked on his "primeval atom" theory which later on was supported by Hubble's observation using the Doppler effect, and proved that the universe was expanding!
Lemaitre had found the universe created by God as "primeval atom": In the beginning!
Fred Hoyle, a physicist atheist, mocked Lemaitre's theory on a radio broadcast:
"If the universe began with a hot Big Bang,.. find me the fossil of this Big Bang."
The name Hoyle used to mock this theory has been stuck ever since. Oh the irony.
According to KJ, he's just trying to show how Faith and Science can coexist, that's all.
Ok, I leave some room for you guys, lol, sorry about that.
God bless us all - Amen!
