13,500,000,000 years ago yesterday, a very hot and extremely dense lump of matter exploded violently, bringing into existence everything we see around us.  How this dense lump of matter came into being is unknown, but the Men In White will someday explain this to us.  No new explanations are needed to account for the origin of the universe. The science is settled. You must believe. Thus saith the Men In White. Thus it is so.

Violent explosions are known to cause order and complexity.

When the universe was, say, a minute or so old, a perfect union of matter came about to create two essential gasses, hydrogen and helium.  They eventually bonded together to form stars. One would think that an immense explosion combined with high temperatures would utterly destroy everything in its path; but in this instance the detonation caused, not one, but unlimited occurrences of single electrons finding their home orbiting a specific nucleus. We marvel to see all around us the order and complexity an explosion can bring about.

Several thousand years passed and the lump of matter fireball expanded and happened to cool to an ideal temperature. Tiny electric charges came together (after having a brief war amongst themselves) to form tiny particles called atoms. The Men In White once thought atoms to be the lowest form of matter beyond which no further subdivision is possible.  But recently the Men In White have learned that atoms are not indivisible as once thought.

As the lump of matter spread out and cooled even more, they attracted to each other with a “pulling effect,” which caused pieces to concentrate and organize.  These are our galaxies.  Although we have never before witnessed any kind of violent explosion that could organize itself in such a beautiful way, it must be true.  It’s science after all.  You must believe.

If you give a violent explosion enough time to organize itself, look what marvelous things it can create!

    Actually, he said no such thing. Yahoo News, AP and so on say that’s what he said, but in the interest of accuracy, he did not denounce the creation view or espouse the evolution view. The Catholic Church is not in the business of confirming science. To most science, we say “Could be, as long as you believe God started it all.” The Bible does not tell us how the heavens go, it tells us how to go to heaven.

    Good morning David –
    I’m not sure how the Catholic Church became part of this post. Perhaps you thought my running rebuke of the Men In White somehow implies The Pope? Men In White are not the clergy, but the scientists.

    This post has nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church.

    Best to you,

      You got it, and sorry if I misread it. With all the buzz about the Pope and the Big Bang theory, it’s just on my mind. Thanks for the clarification.

    Crap! You do not know of the almighty’s plan or Christ our Saviors knowledge. The universe can be explained by God to us in our afterlives, but DO NOT presume to explain it to US!

    What bullshit! Stick to ripping into the godless satanic Muslims and other evils, but do NOT presume to know God’s designs for the UNIVERSE.

      Hi Mick-
      I assume you are attempting to spread some sort of message? It would help if anyone could understand what you are wittering on about.

      While it is true that no man knows exactly all that happened, the Bible is God’s very word and message. He told us what happened. He said that He created everything with a spoken word. That message is pretty straight forward, though elements of it can be interpreted in a few ways. Nonetheless, the scientists will say that God had no part of it, and couldn’t have any part of it, because he does not exist. But it is easier to believe that matter just spontaneously happened, apparently. Richard Dawkins mocks the idea that we are here by God’s design and will and power, but then stated that humans are here because aliens seeded this world. The “science” of atheistic man is funny in what they deny and in what they propound.

      Thus, interestingly enough, modern atheistic science is just as godless and far more immoral than the Muslims and Mormons and JWs, and the other evils that claim to have knowledge without bowing to the Scriptures.
