Big Bang

As some of you know I am a Christian apologetist.  The reference is almost a misnomer because I don’t apologize for the Bible, I defend it, even against pastors with PhDs in philosophy with wacky theology.  There are other pastors who I consider “feel good” pastors.  They are greatly influenced by their board of directors and the board wants them to teach “feel good”.  One pastor used to say, and I agree, “A good sermon should make a comfortable man feel a little uncomfortable, and an uncomfortable man feel a little more comfortable.”  I had no formal training to be an apologetist, probably a good thing, other than I studied the Bible for a year and take it at its word.  Some of it isn’t there to make us feel good.  But there are often overlooked parts of the Bible that are physics. 

In this video Laura Danly explains how precise events had to be at the Big Bang for this universe to be created.  The latter part of the show explains that after the Big Bang something had to come along and “fine tune” space matter to make the material our body is made of.  All the physicists in this program agreed with the precision.  Their differences were in who or what made the universe.  One thing is certain, who or what does things on a grand scale. 

The book of Job is a book in the Bible with a lot of creation physics.  While the human side is a book of faith and suffering (not always feel good), there is the creation side beginning in Chapter 38 when God finally speaks to Job. 

“38 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:

2 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

3 Gird up your loins like a man;

I will question you, and you shall declare to me.

4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?

    Tell me, if you have understanding.

5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!

    Or who stretched the line upon it?

6 On what were its bases sunk,

    or who laid its cornerstone

7 when the morning stars sang together

    and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?”
