Proponents of the so-called Big Bang Theory claim that hydrogen atoms then began to fuse—the same way they do in a hydrogen bomb—and in yet another immense burst of light, the first stars came into being. I don't claim to understand all of that, but you have to admit it's pretty cool.
I find it intriguing that the Bible indicates the universe came into existence in a tremendous burst of light like nothing we can imagine: “God said, Let there be light, and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). It doesn’t end there. 1 John 1:5 assigns a divine status to light: “God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”
Scientists now agree that light is transcendent, although that is a relatively recent innovation as far as their thinking goes. In 1905, Albert Einstein published what was then considered to be his ridiculous theory of special relativity. According to Einstein, contrary to what scientists had believed up until that point, light inhabits a realm where the commonplace laws of space and time aren’t obeyed. (And, no, that doesn’t mean the Twilight Zone.) Like God, light exists beyond the limits of the physical universe.
All of which demonstrates the foolish claim that because science has never proven the existence of God, God doesn’t exist. Science is limited to the physical. God exists outside the physical, and is therefore beyond the comprehension of science. If science were able to comprehend and explain God, then He wouldn’t be God.
When we interact with light—and remember that God is light—we are interacting with something that is at the same time in this world but not of this world.
I don’t claim to understand cosmology. I'm content to know the Cosmologist Himself. God has said in His word, "Wherefore let him who glories, glory in this: that he knows and understands Me." That doesn't mean that we can know everything there is to know about God, but that we can understand Him in so far as He has revealed Himself. That is why He gave us His word. I stand in awe of God. He is so utterly, infinitely beyond anything you or I can imagine. He created everything by speaking it into existence! Science has thus far been able to discover little scraps of what took place, but our finite minds could never begin to comprehend everything that occurred anyway. While I do accept the Genesis account of the six days of creation of the world and its inhabitants as we know it, I don't think that necessarily limits the age of the universe to a time span of only 6,000-10,000 years. It is obvious there is much beyond anything we can imagine. As for me, I'm perfectly content to wait until the day when He reveals everything to us. He has already given us enough to do to keep us occupied.
But what really amazes and humbles me is that the God who did all of that knows me. How could I possibly want or need anything else?
