The debate on how our universe was created has been talked about
for many centuries. But even now in our age of technology, there is really no
answer. Scientists of the world are often researching on the two most popular theories:
The Big Bang and Creationism. But what really is each one about? We will take a
closer look into this topic, we'll take some deeper looks at these theories.
Where did it come from?
The Big Bang Theory; It is probably one of the best known and
talked about theories. But unlike most creation theories, there are many
different versions of this theory.
One of them is that 10-20 billion years ago, there was a very large cosmic explosion that threw matter all over the galaxy, thus forming the planets and life forms. This theory is probably one of the best known.
Another similar theory is this one: 1.5 million years ago there was a huge explosion which created the universe and at that point, the universe started expanding. According to some sources, before the Big Bang, energy and matter were all just circulating in one area.
Who was the person who created the theory of the Big Bang? Well, that would be Edwin Hubble. He created the theory and also noted the fact that the universe is continuous in every known direction. Mr. Hubble's keen observations are the basis for the Big Bang.
But Edwin Hubble wasn't the only person to research the Big Bang. In 1964, Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson attempted some research. While they were attempting to detect microwaves from outer space, the two astronomers unintentionally heard a noise…that sounded very extraterrestrial. Later it was discovered that what they heard was radiation coming from the farthest points of the universe which was believed to be left behind from the Big Bang. This discovery shone much new light on the theory.
The Big Bang is one of the most well-known theories, but it isn't the only one. Next, we'll take a look at the next theory: Creationism.
Creationism is also a well-known theory. But unlike the Big
Bang, this theory is stated as being true. The Bible states in Genesis 1:1:
“In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.”
Also unlike the Big Bang, this theory hasn't ever been scientifically proven. The only proof that this may be true is that verse. Most Christians believe this theory is true
Other than this, there is really no other evidence supporting this. Numerous other Bible verses mention God creating the universe, but that is all.
We've covered the two most well known and debated theories of Creationism. But even after all that is said and done, the same question remains:
“Which one is the right one?”
So overall, that's for you to decide. That's right, you. There really is no clear-cut answer. And maybe there never will be one…but only time will tell.
