Scientists Discover "Universe Created Suddenly"

Researchers are saying this week they have now spotted evidence that a "split second after the Big Bang, the newly formed universe ballooned out at a pace so astonishing that it left behind ripples in the fabric of the cosmos."

Wow. I had been told the universe evolved over billions and trillions of years.

Not so, scientists are saying. This new discovery "gives us a window on the universe at the very beginning."

"It's just amazing, you can see back to the beginning of time," they say.


Associated Press is reporting this week that Marc Kamionkowski with Johns Hopkins University says this discovery is "not just a home run. It's a grand slam."

The report says the astronomers "scanned about 2% of the sky for 3 years with a telescope at the South Pole where the air is exceptionally dry."

They were looking for "a specific pattern of light waves within the faint microwave glow left over from the 'Big Bang'."

The scientists say if this "grand slam" is verified, it would be the first detection of such waves or tremmors from the birth of the universe.

Not all, but many, scientists believe that the universe exploded from a tiny spec and hurled itself out in all directions in the fraction of a second that followed, beginning just 10 to the minus 35 35 seconds (roughly one trillionth of a trillionth of a second) after the universe's birth.

It is said that Creationists must have a great amount of faith to believe God created the universe.

As I read this report, it occurred to me that these researchers must also have a great deal of faith in their research.

These light waves they have now discovered are the ancient light waves which remained imprinted in the skies and are a leftover glow called the "cosmic microwave background," they explain.

They are also explaining to the world that the expansion ripples are like ripples from a ball kicked into a pond.

What scientists don't seem to know is, "Who kicked the ball?"

Dr. Danny Faulkner with "Answers in Genesis" says of this window to the beginning of time, "As it turns out, if the effort they're reporting is really true---that they found and it survives scrutiny---there are actually a number of other mechanisms that actually might produce the same result."

He says, "So you could be reaching the wrong conclusions based upon the data."

Faulkner also says, "The announced discovery isn't as clean a theory as press reports suggest" and that disturbs him.

Faulkner, of course, is a Creationist. He says, "I don't believe the world is billions of years old as the Big Bang requires. I believe its only thousands of years old as the chronologies in the Bible seem to suggest. So the Big Bang stars existed for billions of years before the earth came along---but yet Genesis 1 tells us pretty clearly the earth came first and the stars came at least a few days later."

The scientists have told the press, "Nature is cooperating with us, laying out its cards in a way that can be seen."

More importantly, we should know that nature's God has "laid out all the cards" from the beginning.

The ace card explains, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

The ripple effect of that act is clear to many today.

God's creative act was not merely a random creative act---it was purposeful, and when He finished at the close of the 6th day, "He saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good."

My personal discovery has led me to this: "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it" (Ps. 24:1).

Be Blessed.

  1. "Wow. I had been told the universe evolved over billions and trillions of years."

    Um, Gary, that's kinda the point. They are saying there was this really fast explosion and then the matter released has evolved for billions of years. It took 380,000 years just for the electrons to cool enough to start combining with protons. Then billions of years for the hydrogen gas to cool and start forming stars.

    If you think they are saying there was this big explosion and that was it, here's your universe, you might want to re-visit your research.

    1. Um, 10:41, what caused the explosion? what exploded? where did it come from? why?

      Science has no answers, grasping at straws.

      Again, the "fool says in his heart there is no God"

    2. So you consider scientific research and gathering of evidence to be 'grasping a straws'? Apparently it works pretty well, or you wouldn't have that fancy computer you're typing on and the internets.

      But, you are right about no one knowing 'why'. The research will continue and maybe one day they will discover 'why'. Maybe it will turn out that there actually is a god or gods. That's probably one of the trillions of possible explanations.

    3. I didn't say "no one knows why" . God knows why "to reveal himself thru the things he has made".

      In order for something to explode it must exist and have a cause. Science can't answer that nor will they. I'll hang my hat on Gen !.

      Many who plan on seeking God at the eleventh hour die at 10:30. Can you afford to wait?

  2. I wonder if through a special telescope designed for revealing things about God, if they will ever imagine Jesus speaking things into being by the power of God, because of what the Father showed him.

    Rom 10:9,10.

  3. I saw a bumper sticker that said "The Big Bang Theory: God spoke and BANG, it happened!"

  4. I'm no scientist mind you, in fact I've often been accused of not being the brightest bulb in the package, but if light waves are about light, and sound waves are about sound, and these are apparently light waves...how do we know it made a sound like a bang? I'm just thinking that God could have done things relatively quietly if he wanted to.

    I'm wondering if the sound waves, if there are yet any to be found, if they are not far behind the light waves, or what.

    All this is probably too much for me to understand anyway. I'm glad God kept it simple in Genesis chapter 1.

    All that about light, water, and spirit....reminds me of Luke 1:35 and some other verses. God has his way of doing things and saying things, and giving us promises of hope.
