“In the beginning, there was no time, no matter, not even space. Then in some unfathomable way, a universe emerged from a dimensionless point of pure energy…this theory of an expanding universe emanating from a primordial big bang is the explanation of creation held by nearly all scientists, for it bests fits what they can actually observe.”

Why Is This So Important?
“Astronomers now find they have painted themselves into a corner because they have proven, by their own methods, that the world began abruptly in an act of creation to which you can trace back the seeds of every star, every planet, every living thing in this cosmos and on the earth.
And they have found that all this happened as a product of forces they cannot hope to discover… …That there are what I, or anyone, would call supernatural forces at work is now, I think, a scientifically proven fact.”

Science and Reason Point to God
“For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream:
He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; He is about to conquer the highest peak; As he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”
(Robert Jastrow, God and the Astronomers, p. 116)
The Cosmological Argument…
1. All created things have a beginning.
2. Science has proven the universe had a beginning.
3. The universe requires a Creator (or beginner)
