Question Of The Day: Do You Believe That God Made The “Big Bang” That Created The Earth???

- By Bossip Staff

Finally! After all the debates, religous rhetoric, and Bible quoting, Pope Benedict has put the Creationism Vs. Evolution battle to rest for ALL of us…

“The universe is not the result of chance, as some would want to make us believe,” Benedict said on the day Christians mark the Epiphany, the day the Bible says the three kings reached the site where Jesus was born by following a star.

“Contemplating it (the universe) we are invited to read something profound into it: the wisdom of the creator, the inexhaustible creativity of God,” he said in a sermon to some 10,000 people in St. Peter’s Basilica on the feast day.

While the pope has spoken before about evolution, he has rarely delved back in time to discuss specific concepts such as the Big Bang, which scientists believe led to the formation of the universe some 13.7 billion years ago.

The all-mighty, all-knowing Pope goes on to say…

“In the beauty of the world, in its mystery, in its greatness and in its rationality … we can only let ourselves be guided toward God, creator of heaven and earth,” he said.

Benedict and his predecessor John Paul have been trying to shed the Church’s image of being anti-science, a label that stuck when it condemned Galileo for teaching that the earth revolves around the sun, challenging the words of the Bible.

Galileo was rehabilitated and the Church now also accepts evolution as a scientific theory and sees no reason why God could not have used a natural evolutionary process in the forming of the human species.

The Catholic Church no longer teaches creationism — the belief that God created the world in six days as described in the Bible — and says that the account in the book of Genesis is an allegory for the way God created the world.

The question begs to be asked…Do you believe in creationism or evolution? Doesn’t the Catholic Church seem a little wishy-washy on this subject?

    God created the Big Bang that created everything.

      Uhhh, then who created God?

    • WithAllHonesty

      God always has been and will always be.

      You can’t prove otherwise. Nor prove the anything prior to the Big Bang. So what I stated is just as valid as you stating your disbelief in God.

      I can accept you not believing, but you can’t accept that I believe?!

      This is what I can’t stand about the religion versus science debates. Neither side are saying all that much, but want their word to be the final word. Psh…

    • ReALiSt

      How can the “CATHOLIC CHURCH” be BS when the “CATHOLIC CHURCH” created CHRISTIANITY?? Christianity was created and forced on people by the ROMAN CATHOLICS… It just shows that CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM are FAUX.. We have been deceived for too long, and the most high will punish these people… RELIGION IS FAUX!!!!

    It would be great if someone just said, “I dont know, no one knows…. do you feel any spiritual energies from time to time? Yes, then just belive in a higher power and accept that as a race we may not be as important as we belive”

  • Jane

    No, I don’t believe it. I do believe in spirits, as we had one in a house we lived in years ago. Energy changes forms. There are, if I remember correctly, 2,870 gods worshiped by people all over the world. So, which one did it? That leaves 2,869 you choose not to believe in. I read somewhere that we are all ‘almost atheists’. I believe in science and physics.

    i believe in evolution and science…the universe is vast and we have discovered and study many forms of energy and energy can’t be destroyed but converted into another form, radiation is also another form of energy that has its effects that can change the shape/forms of ppl and things alike, as well as, civilizations from ppl to animals evolve to adapt and survive but if believing in a higher power/spiritual being makes u feel safer/better thats cool too

    Either you believe what’s clearly written in the Bible or you believe what you clearly see through a telescope. God created the universe in six days around 6000 years ago or, based on cosmological evidence, the universe started with the “Big Bang” 15 billion years ago. Two completely contradictory accounts. Pick one or the other, none of this mix-n-match make up your own theory bulls**t.

  • WithAllHonesty

    @Yeti
    The Bible has inacurracies due to translation and other motives. And it was once believed that the sun revolves around the Earth and not the other way around. So putting total belief in science or religion is completely stupid.

    No one knows for sure, but if you’re going to call someone wrong then you have to prove your right using both your methodology and theirs.

    • Yeti

      If the “Bible has inacurracies due to translation and other motives” then what is it that makes you believe some parts are accurate and other parts inaccurate? How do you prove the “Word of God” is not entirely man-made? Why would God allow inaccuracies to exist? All religions can’t be right. You say “No one knows for sure” but the fact is that we do know for sure from observable evidence that the Earth goes around. The same as observable evidence such as the finite speed of light, doppler shift and the known measurements of stars and galaxies indicates that the universe originated from a single point billions of years ago. Facts which contradict biblical accounts.

      “if you’re going to call someone wrong then you have to prove your right using both your methodology and theirs”

      Wrong. It’s impossible to disprove something – faith – which provides no proof to disprove. Advocates of faith are oblivious and ignorant of evidence and have no methodology except sophistry. With faith you believe simply because you believe. If you were in a court charged with murder would you prefer the jury to believe your guilt based on faith or on the evidence presented?

      It’s simple, believe what you want, but if you’re going use evidence to support or prove what you believe then stick to the following the evidence wherever it leads. If you believe things based on faith i.e. “because it says so in the Bible” then stick to faith and stop using evidence just when it’s convenient.

  • OpenMinded

    Some of you are truly foolish whether you believe what the bible says or the science books say you still believe what ever man has told you. The bible was written be people and so were the text books so why is right to believe one over the other? Either way you were not there to see anything with your own eyes. To me it is all still a mystery that I do not care to solve and I am just thankful I am here today to live in this world.

    • getreal

      the facts in science books, although written by man, are full of equations and experiments that can be recreated and proven as fact for anyone to see… not true about the bible.

  • bang bang

    you can be atheist but there is no other book that has been as accurate as the bible!this is just another attempt to mock the most high! white man knows jesus was a black man and we are the original chosen israelites!! them crackers hate it and want to further erase history!!

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    this is the same religion that practices the sale of indulgences (meaning you can pay to have your sins forgiven to get into heaven). you do the math…

  • Taylor

    I agree with OpenMinded’s statement…

  • lucyskydiamond

    i dont trust the catholic church.

  • ReALiSt

    How can GOD create the EARTH 6000years ago when the Egyptians built the SPHINX and the PYRAMIDS of GIZA more than 10,000years ago??? Are the EGYPTIANS older than GOD??? That means someone is lying, and it’s definitely not the ancient people – the only people that came into this world 6000years ago were the EUROPEANS and their GOD… I’m a BLACK MAN and I’m older than that – that’s why I only believe in the creator that lives inside of me, every other thing is BS… There is no HEAVEN or HELL…

    If GENESIS was an ALLEGORY, that means ABRAHAM was an ALLEGORY – which means there was no ISAAC, JACOB or ISMAEL – and that make CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM FAUX… Seek knowledge people!!!

  • lt

    God is the creator of all good.

  • http://Www.bossip.com Jk

    Many people know the catholic church has since been infiltrated by the devil.Very pagan now.Also the bible never said the universe or earth was created 6000 years ago.

  • 1991 UK Gem of Africa...

    Why is the Pope seemingly the picture for Christianity??? He is not not all Christians are Catholic.
    God is the creator of all things. I do not believe in theories such as evolution (apes??? come on) or the big bang… the are said to be theories just that.
    Why is it easier for there to be belief in theories rather than God.???

    • Marquis de Sade

      Cuz evolution and the Big Bang Theory is based on scientific fact, while the belief in some disembodied boogie man in the sky is based on irrational blind faith, which requires little to no thought, darlin’.

    • 1991 UK Gem of Africa...

      Do not patronise me.
      No it is not based on scientific fact they made up just like how you think God is. Just because it is scientific doesn’t make it real/right. Science also says white people are superior to black people is that right? You may have come from an ape but certainly not me.
      So lets take your rational that you came from apes and the earth and life as we know if occurred from a big bang. What made the big bang etc to happen. Why are you here.
      And if you ask me were God came from he is has always been past present and future.

    • ManchesterUKer

      If you want to reject an idea try actually understanding it first. If you hadn’t failed biology you’d probably know evolution theorises that we have a COMMON ANCESTOR with apes, not that we came from them. You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about so it’s probably best to discount your entire ‘contribution’ to the argument.

  • Marquis de Sade

    Who created God?

    “And if you ask me were God came from he is has always been past present and future.”

    …And you know this how, darlin’? I reiterate, your belief system is solely based on IRRATIONAL BLIND FAITH, not scientific fact or evidence. Remember, everything is based is on a LINEAR equation: A BEGINNING AND AN END!

    • 1991 UK Gem of Africa...

      Yes and i am saying God is the beginning and the end the Alpha and Omega.
      But i asked you what was the cause of this big bang. How was it so precise humans each unique was created that the climate was perfect etc etc.. Why did all this happen.
      To you my faith is irrational but you belief in the big bang to me is faith in something also. It hasn’t been proven that is why it is a theory. But each faith to their own i guess
      Remember honey it is based on a liner equation a beginning and the end 😉
