Big Bang or Big Voice?
Scientists declare that the most likely starting point for our universe was an enormous explosion of energy 13.7 billion years ago. They point to evidence that they universe continues to expand and that expansion had to have begun with what is popularly called “The Big Bang”.
The Bible opens describing an explosion of creative will and energy expressed with the words “And God said ‘Let there be…'”. Perhaps we could call this the “Big Voice” explanation of reality.
Something or someone set what we see in motion. As far as I have been able to tell the entire debate about the origin of the universe is a verbal debate coming from human beings who can only expand and communicate their knowledge with words.
It seems to me that the case for the “Big Voice” position is strong because of the value we place on being able to describe and debate with voices on either side of the issue. The best words win.
The Bible definitely is a book based on the Big Voice. I chose voice. Thanks for listiening to my little voice. Now listen to the Big Voice.
