One of the beautiful things about scientific theories, theories not based upon speculation but upon what we already know is that they can be tested. We can look for confirming evidence and in some cases discover their logical conclusions.
We’ve already seen that the:
2nd Law of Thermodynamics and
Expansion of the universe point to a definitive space / time boundary, a Big Bang Creation Event.
Something else that scientists would expect to find, IF there had been such a singularity is Background Radiation. In 1965 Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson discovered the afterglow of the biggest explosion of all time, the Big Bang. They discovered exactly what science has predicted should be there if there had indeed been a Creation Event.
Cosmic Background Radiation is really remnants of the heat and light left over from the singularity. While the light is no longer visible, the heat, in the form of radiation CAN be detected.
“No explanation other than the Big Bang has been found for the fireball radiation. The clincher, which has convinced almost the last Doubting Thomas (not atheists but they’re a different case altogether), is that the radiation discovered by Penzias and Wilson has exactly the pattern of wavelengths expected for the light and heat produced in a great explosion. Supporters of the steady state theory (atheists to a person) have tried desperately to find an alternative explanation, but they have failed. At the present time, the Big Bang theory has no competitors.” (insertion in brackets mine)
In a Court Room a single line of evidence is powerful. Add a second line of confirming evidence and plea bargaining would ensure that the case never makes it to Court. Add a third line of evidence and the guy wouldn’t be able to find a defence lawyer to take his case. That’s what we have so far. Regardless, faith in atheism forces individuals to cling to, well, to cling to nothing, literally.
We know from science that whatever begins to exist has an explanation of its existence either in the Necessity of its being (it can’t NOT exist) or in an external cause. We know that the universe is not necessary so it must have been caused by something external to itself. After all, no one would be so foolish as to say that the universe created itself or that it pre existed itself. Well, there is one group that is willing to say that, but . . .
According to atheism the universe doesn’t have an explanation of its existence. They say that “It just happened.” Over a dozen theories and over a dozen more variations on those theories have come and gone in a vain attempt to rule out a definite beginning for our universe and thus do away with the implication that a Supernatural God brought about this beginning. Despite the current scientific knowledge described above, atheists persist in stating that either matter has always existed (impossible) or that matter created itself (also impossible). Why do they do this? Because >
. If there is an explanation of the universe’s existence, then atheism is not true. And that is because the only explanation that fits the evidence of how and why the universe came into being is Creator God. That is why Richard Dawkins himself has lately admitted that a good case could be made for the existence of a Deistic God. Actually, I believe that some day there won’t be any atheists. There will be people for God and people against God but there won’t be anyone who believes that God doesn’t exist. And, irony of ironies it will be science that will prove the existence of God.
. Because of overwhelming scientific evidence, most atheists do grudgingly admit that the universe did indeed have a beginning. Unfortunately for atheists, it can be said with absolute confidence that no cosmogonic model has been:
As repeatedly verified in its predictions,
As corroborated by attempts at its falsification,
As concordant with empirical discoveries, and
As philosophically coherent as the Standard Big Bang Creation Event Model.
Hence, most atheists are implicitly committed to God being the explanation of why the universe came into existence.
