How The Big Bang Proves The Existence of God

Last week scientists discovered evidence which confirms the Big Bang theory. You can read all about it here.

And articles like this one, have pointed out, evidence for the Big Bang is evidence for the existence of God.

How so?

Say hello to the Cosmological Argument.  It’s an argument that originated with medieval Muslim thinkers, but was made famous by a Christian theologian name Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 1274). The basic argument goes like this:

  1. Whatever begin to exist has a cause
  2. The universe begin to exists
  3. Therefore it has cause

As you can see if the Big Bang theory is true, then there is a definite beginning to the universe. That in turn means that there had to be a definite cause to that beginning. The question is what was that cause, which caused the beginning of the universe?

For Christians the answers seems obvious, the cause which caused the Big Bang and therefore the beginning of the universe was God.  The first line in the Bible says just that, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth“. But why couldn’t the beginning of the universe be caused by say another universe, or something other than a personal Creator God?
