If the Big Bang theory is true, it presents some major problems regarding the composition and expansion of the universe. These problems consist of such things as the Monopole Problem, the Flat Problem, and the Horizon Problem. Permit me to summarize. The universe began from nothing, which then exploded. That’s right. “Nothing” exploded. But it didn’t explode equally in all directions as we would expect it to. It continues to flatten out like pancake batter dropped on a griddle. The universe is also at a fairly consistent temperature which, if it exploded normally, it wouldn’t be. Astrophysicists have attempted to solve these (and many other) problems with yet another theory: Inflation. Again, if I may paraphrase, inflation states that the Big Bang exploded but almost immediately after starting to explode, it exploded even bigger, faster, and in a very special way, THEN very quickly went back to “regular” exploding. Wikipedia describes it this way: “It lasted from 10−36 seconds after the Big Bang to sometime between 10−33 and 10−32 seconds.” In other words, nearly instantaneously. The evidence for this theory? None. The reason the Inflationary Theory is necessary? The Big Bang can’t be true without it! That is a self-serving and circular argument. Atheist astrophysicists wave a magic wand of a theory to make their problems disappear but laugh at those who believe in a Creator God. The evidence for the existence of God is in every atom in the universe.
