While at work the other day, I accidentally hit the play button for that morning’s ttb.org (Through The Bible) broadcast. My workmates immediately asked ‘what was that’, I told them it was the opening to a five year bible study that I listen to daily. One workmate said he doesn’t believe in that bible stuff. The Nuns at the Catholic school dismissed the existence of dinosaurs as fake, and lumped in Egyptian Mummies for good measure. I don’t fully know their reasoning but let me explain mine.
I believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God. That is what I BELIEVE, based on historical evidence and what the bible says. Jesus believed the bible, he is quoted as saying,
“Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female,… “
Matthew 19:4 (NASV)
Christ believed it – and so I. Now I know that this proof is circular in that I used the Bible to prove the Bible.
So what is the scientific evidence for a God versus – natural random coincidence?
The Big Bang or Multiverse? The Big Bang speaks to a beginning – so does the Bible, the issue with Big Bang is where did the initial spark come from, and why if it had been stable at one point did it become unstable and explode? I choose to believe that GOD, as revealed in the Bible is the explanation for the initial ‘Big Bang’ of our universe.
Now there is another theory out there that suggested that there was no beginning, and that our universe is one of trillions that exist in a vision some are calling Multiverses.
The universe we live in may not be the only one out there. In fact, our universe could be just one of an infinite number of universes making up a “multiverse.”
Though the concept may stretch credulity, there’s good physics behind it. And there’s not just one way to get to a multiverse — numerous physics theories independently point to such a conclusion. In fact, some experts think the existence of hidden universes is more likely than not. Space.com
Does the bible speak to multiverses? Well yes, God exists out side of our Universe and I suppose that the “lake of fire prepared for Satan and his angels” is another universe – then the Bible speaks of three universes at minimum. Why wouldn’t we ‘discover’ this, the Bible has suggested it for generations.
In the end you must decide what it is that you believe. Random occurrences happened to bring forth life here on earth and on planets too distant for us to definitively discover life there, or believe in an all powerful, all knowing designer – who is the cause for life here on earth as explained to us in the Bible.
I choose to believe in God, you are free to choose to believe otherwise. In the end if I am wrong it will not matter, BUT if you have chosen to believe otherwise and are wrong – it will be the biggest mistake you could have possibly made.
