We’ve already seen that the:
2nd Law of Thermodynamics, the
Expansion of the universe,
Background Cosmic Radiation, and
Cosmic Seeds, emphatically and conclusively point to a definitive space / time boundary, a Big Bang Creation Event.
We can’t of course leave out Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. This is the fifth separate and irrefutable line of evidence pointing to the fact of a Big Bang Creation Event. And yet, I know from experience, that because all of this points to a Supernatural Creator of the universe, atheists will ignore the very science they claim to worship and state a supposition that completely contradicts the evidence. That’s what a commitment to any world-view does to a person. It produces huge blind-spots that prevent us from following the evidence. Now, atheists will tell you that this evidence does not point to a Supernatural Cause of the universe. We must ask then, if this doesn't point to a Supernatural Cause, why in the world would you reject a hypothesis that absolutely fits the evidence and cling to something for which there is no evidence and only speculation? Worse there is evidence showing that these speculations are not workable and yet atheists, including the ones who reply here find them more palatable than the Standard Model. It doesn't make any sense unless, UNLESS the Big Bang does indeed point to Creator God.
Nevertheless, the theory of General Relativity nails shut the coffin of the Steady State model. Combined with the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, the Expansion of the universe, the presence of Background Cosmic Radiation, Cosmic Seeds of Galaxies, and the proof of the Borde-Guth-Vilenkin Theorem, all these evidences nail shut the coffin on these theories as well.

It has been found by science that each and every one of these theories require a definitive space / time boundary, and beginning, a singularity and Big Bang Creation Event.
Again, Einstein’s model forces us to accept that at one point, matter, space and time did not exist. They are not eternal, nor are they infinite in nature. Each and every one of them had to have had a beginning.
None of them existed until all of them existed - Period!
It is Einstein’s theory that predicted all of the other lines of evidence that I’ve mentioned. However there is one more line of evidence that seems to trip up atheists every time they think about it. That is the fact that the physical infinite does not and indeed cannot exist. I’ll deal with this in the next and final post on the subject.
