Most secular teaching claims that the universe came to be with a Big Bang; that there was a small infinitely hot and dense point billions of years ago which is called a singularity point. From this singularity, the teaching says, came all the matter and energy that evolved into all that exists today in our universe. Naturalists believe that the universe is infinite; that it has always existed. Different types of theories have continued to arise in an attempt to explain the origin of the universe including the steady-state theory espoused by Hermann Bondi, Thomas Gold, and Fred Hoyle, and many others that claim that the universe is infinite and that, in spite of entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics, new energy and matter continue to, somehow, be generated, replacing that which is used up with the passage of time. These are all attempts to repudiate what the Bible says about the beginning of the universe. But the Bible unequivocally insists that the universe had a miraculous beginning at a point when there was no time, no space or matter; a time when there were no laws of physics as we know them since these laws could not exist without the universe: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…Then God said, “Let there be light…”” (Genesis 1:1,3).
In 1963-1965 when Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, two engineers employed by Bell Laboratories, looked through a giant telescope of a Satellite Transmission System known as Echo, they saw a film of radiation enveloping the whole universe; the entire universe seemed to be bathed in a soft glow of light. This light became known as the Cosmic Microwave Radiation Background (CMRB).
Prior to this discovery, skeptics had contended that if the universe indeed had a beginning at a certain point in time with the explosion of light, then the vestiges of that light should still be present, somehow. Well, what do you know? Penzias and Wilson discovered the remainder of that light-a telltale sign of creation, as the Bible boldly proclaims… “Let there be light…”
Listen to Penzias’ comment following this discovery: “The best data we have are exactly what I would have predicted had I nothing to go on but the five books of Moses, the Psalms and the Bible as a whole.”1
Although the CMRB is invisible to the naked eye, it continues to shine in the microwave part of the electromagnetic spectrum all around the universe.

All types of books are being written to mock and to try to repudiate Christianity. Some of these books out rightly deny the existence of God and call those who believe in Him deluded and intellectually-deficient!!! These books have, startlingly, become best sellers including the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, the Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and many others. Astonishingly, people like Dawkins go so far as to claim that “the universe we observe has … no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference. … DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.” May be Dawkins would like to tell the victims of despicable genocides, persecutions and shootings that the perpetrators were merely dancing to their DNA!!! If we are merely dancing to the tune of our DNA then we have no accountability for our actions and if we have no accountability, we can steal and kill and destroy at will. Such a teaching undermines human rights and mocks the pursuit for justice because justice is only relevant where there is a need to enforce what is right. If we are all dancing to our DNA, Dawkins is also dancing to his DNA; without reason, without knowledge. Such propositions are not only preposterous; they undermine the value of human life. They attempt to repudiate the biblical teaching that human beings bear the Imago Dei, the image of God; endowed with a free will and the ability to make their own choices, and be responsible for the consequences. Geneticists teach that the environment and genetics have the potential to influence choices. Nevertheless, genetics do not have the ability to coerce us into making those choices. Our genetic makeup is not our destiny.
On another astonishing note, Stephen Hawking promulgates that “God did not create the universe…there is no place for God in theories on the creation of the universe…”Stephen Hawking finds it easier to believe in the Big Bang than in the creation account. One of the reasons why he and many others reject creation is due to lack of so-called empirical evidence in its favor. What is amazing is that there is also no empirical evidence to substantiate the occurrence of the foundation of their faith, the Big Bang.
