Big Bang
The birth of the fine-tuned universe
According to the Big Bang theory, the Universe was once in an extremely hot and dense state which expanded rapidly. This rapid expansion caused the Universe to cool and resulted in its present continuously expanding state. ... There is little evidence regarding the absolute earliest instant of the expansion. Thus, the Big Bang theory cannot and does not provide any explanation for such an initial condition.
Before the big bang theory came around evolutionists believed in the Steady State theory because it gave them infinite time for their theory of slow and gradual evolution. Cause and effect is a basic tenet of science. If the universe had existed eternally they wouldn't have to explain the first cause of the universe. And if life had always existed they wouldn't have to explain first life coming into existence from dead matter either, which is another dilemma for naturalism. But more and more evidence pointed to a beginning of the universe. This evidence mainly comes from the fields of astronomy and astrophysics starting with Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. The second law of thermodynamics dictates an initial condition of the universe to be of a higher order because entropy shows that the universe is subject to degeneration and would ultimately even perish in so-called heat death. Science can never explain what happened exactly at the point of the creation of this universe, how it happened, and what was there before it. But we do know that, whatever happened, the result is this fine-tuned universe. And because scientists believe the universe is expanding it logically follows that the initial state of the fine-tuned universe was contained in something called a singularity.
According to Paul Davies...
If we extrapolate this prediction to its extreme, we reach a point when all distances have shrunk to zero. An intitial cosmological singularity therefore forms a past temporal extremity to the universe. We cannot continue physical reasoning, or even the concept of spacetime, through such an extremity. For this reason most cosmologists think of the initial singularity as the beginning of the universe. On this view the big bang represents the creation event; the creation not only of all the matter and energy in the universe, but also of spacetime itself.
The singularity defines the starting point of time and history. This is also where science has reached its absolute limit. It shows that the fine-tuned universe with all its specified complexity theoretically originated from practically nothing. In this sense it's interesting to note that matter is incredibly, mind-bogglingly empty and that it is over 99.9% empty space. Science is limited and nobody knows what kind of possibly even smaller particles will be found in the future. The visible world is made of the invisible. All matter consists of particles that are made up of even smaller particles and all of them are attracted to each other by means of invisible forces. Everything seems to resolve into energy and nothingness. But how can nothing turn into everything?
Cosmological argument
1. Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
2. The Universe began to exist.
3. Therefore, the Universe had a cause.
William Lane Craig is an expert in the Kalam Cosmological Argument. Nothing comes from nothing, certainly not by itself. Cause and effect are universal. This is true logical reasoning. This universal reality raises an important question. What caused the fine-tuned universe to pop into existence from nothing? The evolutionary worldview is limited strictly to the unprovable philosophy naturalism and excludes supernaturalism from its pallet of explanations beforehand without any evidence. But nothing comes from nothing. It is impossible to explain the coming into existence of the fine-tuned universe and the natural world by means of naturalism. Cause and effect, a principle of true science, has simply reached a dead end with naturalism. See also Entropy. The logical conclusion follows that the supernatural becomes the best explanation. Belief in God is completely logical and rational.
The universe is all of space and time and their contents, including planets, stars, galaxies, and all other forms of matter and energy.
Most people will be somewhat familiar with the universal laws of entropy and the law of conservation of energy. So if the total amount of energy always remains the same, and the quality of energy naturally goes from a higher state to a lower state, then it logically follows that whatever caused the fine-tuned universe to come into existence, it must have been greater than that universe, containing at least the total amount of energy. It must have been incredibly powerful. But what else would be necessary for the creation of a fine-tuned universe fit for life with all its universal laws and specified complexity? Blind and mindless naturalistic processes which didn't exist yet, or mindful intelligent design? The answer is plain and simple, but that answer is not what certain people would like to hear or believe. This has led to some of the most deluded theories to date...
Atheist delusion
According to atheistic and evolutionary belief...
Our universe could have popped into existence 13.7 billion years ago without any divine help whatsoever, researchers say. ... In the very weird world of quantum mechanics, which describes action on a subatomic scale, random fluctuations can produce matter and energy out of nothingness. And this can lead to very big things indeed, researchers say.
The reality is that science can say absolutely nothing about what caused the creation event of the universe. It is far beyond the limits of science. Hence the use of philosophical statements involving the denial of God. Of course the unprovable philosophy naturalism can never account for anything before the natural world simply because there was no natural world. Anybody who believes that something, let alone everything, can come from nothing by means of nothing is simply deluded. Here is what Roger Penrose said about Stephen Hawking's M-theory, which stands symbol for the atheist's neverending quest for the so-called theory of everything, or the atheist's search for the Philosopher's Stone.
According to Roger Penrose...
What is referred to as M-theory, isn't even a theory. It's a collection of ideas, hopes, aspirations. ... The book is a bit misleading in that respect.
Here's a simple truth from John Lennox...
Nonsense remains nonsense even if spoken by very clever scientists.
That sums it up very well.
Cosmic eggs
Lemaître first voiced his proposal that the universe had expanded from an initial point, which he called the "primeval atom" or "the Cosmic Egg, exploding at the moment of the creation", a theme he developed further in a report published in the journal "Nature" later that year.
The Cosmic Egg is a mythological motif found in creation myths of many cultures and civilizations. In the Orphic cosmogony, the unaging Chronos produced Aether and Chaos and made in divine Aether a silvery egg, from which everything else appeared. See Arche and The Presocratic Philosophers. Chronos is the god of time which of course also plays a crucial role in the evolutionary belief system. The 'golden womb' or 'golden egg', is the source of the creation of the Universe or the manifested cosmos in Hindu philosophy. See Hiranyagarbha. Georges Lemaître was a Catholic who invented the Big Bang theory calling it a the Cosmic Egg exploding at the moment of the creation. Catholicism is literally drenched in all kinds of mythical and pagan traditions and beliefs. Easter eggs for example. Evolution is the egghead religion of atheists.
