No matter how many times you explain to atheists that Big Bang cosmology points to a singularity that brought into existence space, time and matter itself, the metaphysical implications of such an event causes atheists to ask, ad nauseam, “Why can’t matter be infinite?”
Well, yesterday I showed that the Second Law of Thermodynamics closes the door on that option. Today I want to look at another fact that points to our universe having a finite beginning.
Remember the watch analogy from yesterday? If a watch is winding down, that means that it was once wound up? It’s the same principle here. If the universe is rushing outwards, if space itself is expanding outwards, that means that at one time it came FROM the opposite direction. The expansion of the universe, like the Second Law of Thermodynamics is an established fact. There is no disputing it. But what does this expansion mean?
It means that at some point in the finite past, the universe had a beginning. That means that if we could watch this expansion in reverse, logically and mathematically we would reach a time when there wasn’t any space, time or matter. There was NOTHING.
As we all know, not everyone on the internet presents themselves as they actually are. Yes it’s true. Some people lie. A couple days ago, I was talking to an atheist who presents himself as a nuclear physicist. The nuclear physicist business must be kinda slow because right now he’s tutoring kids on the computer. Anyhow, this guy tried to get away with saying on his blog that prior to the singularity, the universe was a tiny, tiny speck that weighed around twenty pounds. Readers of his blog were actually letting him get away with this. They were believing it because, well, atheists don’t need God in order to be moral people who wouldn’t lie. When I asked him, “So where was this tiny speck of matter?” he answered, “Well, “it’s kind of complicated, but there must have been just a tiny bit of space around it.”
O Lord, what are we going to do with the genius of atheism?
In reality, at one point there was literally nothing -
And then there was everything.
All scientific evidence in this area, all observable and mathematical evidence in this area confirms this fact. Atheists hate this fact and for good reason. The law of cause and effect disallows the only alternative available to those who deny the Supernatural. That alternative to which atheists must cling says,
“Everything came from nothing without a cause. It just happened.”
Science at its base is the search for Cause. Yet atheists are forced to deny this. Nothing means No Thing. Atheists would have you believe that No Thing, took No Thing and made Every Thing.
Again, and contrary to what atheists would have you believe, it is undeniable that everything had literally nothing from which to come. No space, no time, no matter.
author Anthony Kenny:
“According to the Big Bang Theory the whole matter of the universe began to exist at a particular time in the remote past. A proponent of such a theory, at least if he is an atheist, must believe that the matter of the universe came from nothing and by nothing.”
It’s preposterous and absurd to maintain one’s faith in atheism.
Matter is not infinite.
Matter had a beginning.
Matter had a Cause.
