11/5/14: Who or What has created everything?

Published: Wednesday, 05 November 2014 Written by Carlton L. Arnold

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  Genesis 1:1

If you read any science magazines or keep up with the latest in science, you could easily conclude that every scientist has their own theory (“belief”) on what we know about the universes and, especially, the evolution of life. From what I have read there are many of these theories (“beliefs”) that have been debunked by modern scientists who develop other theories (“beliefs”) that contradict the previous theories (“beliefs”).  As an example, there is a significant lack of the scientific theory about when and how water appeared on the earth.  Most scientists have no theory (“belief”) about this obvious FACT that ¾ of the earth is covered with water.  A suggestion I have for you is to read any science article and highlight all of the uncertain words (maybe, probably, could have, etc.).  You will be amazed at how much a scientific sounding fact that is really only a theory (“belief”).

The current scientific thinking of Creation is that there was nothing, and then there was a few millimeters of gas that exploded  (“the Big Bang”) and everything in the universe was created.  This theory is based on the fact that everything seems to be expanding from some central point; therefore, there was a beginning.  Amazingly, everything that was created (gravity, dark matter, life, etc.) was created in great harmony and orderly for it to have been a gigantic explosion.  Recent findings in RNA and DNA reveal a “Grand Design” in the creation of life.  Most of today’s scientists do not disagree that the universe has a beginning and that it was produced with some design for life to exist.

The Bible is not a science book.  However, the Bible contains certain statements that are declarations of scientific fact.   The first verse of the Bible declares that God created the heavens and the earth.  My faith in this event has developed into a scientific fact.  It has done this because of all of the truths I continue to find in the Bible through Bible Study and all the falsehoods that I have found in our scientific community.  It appears that the world has said that scientific theories have more truth, have more belief, and have more acceptance than any Biblical statement.  I have not found this to be the case.  One last personal example of the errors in scientific reasoning is that I learned in elementary school that man coexisted with dinosaurs and lived in caves, etc.  This scenario does not exist and, in fact, makes man millions of years younger than dinosaurs.

I encourage each one of you to allow the Holy Spirit to strengthen your faith on a daily basis through this comparison of Biblical truths and scientific beliefs.  You will reach a point that “you wish scientific minds could agree, and that they would add the possibility of a Creator God to all of their scientific discoveries.  I think we would know more about dark matter, life on other planets, dark holes, etc.  God has created the heavens and the earth for man to explore.  We should be doing it together.
