in the beginning…

As Kimberly studies astronomy this week, the “Big Bang theory” has come up in conversation. Therefore, I think it’s only appropriate then to discuss what happened one day . . .

One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. So they picked one scientist to go and tell God that they were done with Him.

The scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve decided that we no longer need You. We’re to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don’t You just go on and get lost.”

God listened very patiently and kindly to the man. After the scientist was done talking, God said, “Very well, how about this? Let’s say we have a man-making contest?”

To which the scientist replied, “Okay, great!”

But God added, “Now, we’re going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam.”

The scientist said, “Sure, no problem,” and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God looked at him and said, “No, no, no! You go get your own dirt!”

You see . . .

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Gen 1:1)

There was no “big bang.” There was God! Nothing more or less. God created every bit of it. Astronomers claim that some kind of “forces” were present and that protons and electrons just haphazardly hit each other creating this world we have. If that’s the case, why don’t more protons and electrons keep hitting each other creating more big bangs?  Hmmm?  Maybe they just didn’t get it right!?!?! 

I’m interested in finding out whether a professor of astronomy can believe in God…  What do you think?
