Did everything start from a 'Big bang' or a 'Big brain'?
If you ask someone, how this universe began, people simply murmur, 'big bang'. Whenever there is a big bang due to some atom bomb in your town or city, you can be sure of two things :people would be curious to know who created the explosion— any terrorists or soldiers? the explosion might have caused only damage and destruction and nothing orderly must have come out of it.
The explosion usually is chaotic, like the explosion of a nuclear bomb. But does this type of explosion result in better organization? Do the bombs that fall on cities in wartime produce superbly designed buildings, streets and signs with traffic laws? On the contrary, such explosions cause wreckage, disorder, chaos, disintegration. And when the explosive device is nuclear the disorganization is total, as experienced by the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
No, a mere "explosion" could not create our awesome universe with its amazing order, design and law. Only a mighty organizer and lawmaker could direct the powerful forces at work so that they would result in superb organization and law. The universe we live in, is not some lump of floating material, but a perfect residence (with arrangement for food, water, heat, light, medicine etc) for all living beings to live in harmony. No one would expect a beautiful multi-storeyed housing appartment replete with all facilities for food, water supply, lighting and electricity, hospital facility etc to spring up from a 'big bang' or a big explosion.If someone is adament in arguing on 'big bang', he might be suggested to start a 'small bang construction company' and create housing appartments based on his 'big bang' belief.Encyclopedia Britannica admits, "It should be emphasized that no theory of the origin of the solar system has as yet y/on general acceptance. All involve highly improbable assumptions." Thus, with such "highly improbable" theories the atheists try to deny God as the origin and controller of the universe.
According to big bang theory, everything began from 'a point of infinite temperature, infinite density, infinitesimal in size that is physically indescribable, mathematically unveriflable, beyond all conceptions of space and time.' Does it sound like a scientific theory? Now where did that 'point' come from? Here the scientists face the same difficulty as the religionists they taunt with the question, "Where did God come from?" And just as the religionists respond with the answer that God is the cause of all causes, the scientists are faced with the prospect of declaring a mathematically indescribable, physically unrealizable point of infinite density and temperature, of infinitesimal size, existing before all conceptions of time and space, as the cause of all causes. The choice is yours! Whether you want to accept God or a 'point' as the Supreme cause of all causes.Thus, believing in an empirical (or physical) scientific theory requires just as much faith as in believing that a personal God creates and maintains the universe. Scientists generally claim that nothing is accepted in the field of Science without proper experimental evidence. We can challenge, "Where is the proof that such a point existed? It is more wiser to assume that God, a Supreme Truth, endowed with unlimited energies is the cause of all causes, than to assume a 'point' as the Supreme Truth."
God is not an assumption, but a tangible reality. Dr.Albert Einstein said,"I believe in God - who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of the Universe. I believe that intelligence is manifested throughout all Nature. The basics of scientific work is the conviction that the world is an ordered and comprehensible entity and not a thing of Chance. When I sit here and watch the mighty ocean, I can imagine the treasures hidden below the bed of the sea, when I see the clear blue sky above, I feel sky is the limit. When I cast my eyes around I see the wonders and beauties of Nature. Science must learn to live in Harmony with all these magnificent gifts of God to Humanity."
When we think calmly and carefully about this wonderful universe, we can see that everything is working under the control of a supreme brain. There is a cause behind each action. A machine cannot run without an operator. Modern scientists are very proud of automation, but there is a scientific brain behind automation also.
