According to this strange theory, God created everything, not in a direct way as described in Inspired Scripture, but instead used the intricately torturous Big Bang and theorized, slow evolutionary changes which followed over a period of billions of years in outer space and here on planet Earth. Our solar system and world were formed from a cloud of gas which gradually coalesced into a molten mass. Eventually, after immense ages of time, it solidified into our planet. Over a period of billions of years, living cells eventually sprang out of seawater and sand, and life forms gradually evolved. Those were long, long ages of harsh conditions and violent death. Billions upon billions of animals were slain or died a natural death, prior to the arrival of Adam and Eve millions of years later. Could this theory fly with God? Lets look at some reasons why Creation and evolution cannot be combined.
1. This "Christian Big Bang" theory runs counter to the polonium 218 radio-halo which dramatically demonstrates that granite, which forms the bedrock beneath our continents, was formed solid in less than three minutes.
2. This theory denies a wealth of scientific facts disproving the evolutionary claim that transitional species developed over billions of years. The hoped for, never found "transitional species" lies at the very heart of evolutionary error, yet no half-way species have ever been found.
3. This theory overlooks the total unreliability of radio-dating and carbon-14 dating. Because strata, fossil, and radio-dating evidence is useless, there is no reliable evidence of long ages of time for earth's history!
These three scientific evidences alone is enough to sink this "Big Bang Creationism" theory. But even more important and far more crucial is the theory eliminates Genesis chapter 1 to chapter 11 and the plan of redemption. Genesis chapter 1 clearly states that our world was made in six literal days, not over a period of billions of years. Exodus 20:11 says, "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: Wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."
While the Big Bang Creationism Theory teaches that there was life and death for long ages before Adam existed, the Bible clearly states that there was no death in our world prior to Adam's sin!
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned : For until the law sin was in the world : but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come" (Romans 5:12-14).
The theory also denies the Bible statement that on the different days of the Creation, God instantly brought things into existence. God spoke everything into existence; He did not let them slowly evolve. "By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth" (Psalm 33:6). Because the theory denies the validity of Genesis 1, it also denies the need for a Saviour (Lord Jesus Christ) to redeem Adam's sin and the sin of his descendants (Romans 5:15-18).
Sir Fred Hoyle, famous astronomer, cosmologist, and mathematician, of Cambridge University said in an article, "The Big Bang Theory under Attack", Science Digest, vol. 92, May 1984, p. 84, "I have hesitation in saying that a sickly pall now hangs over the big bang theory."
For anyone to suggest that God used evolution for the way by which He created everything, would have to make clear scientific evidence to be denied and the initial foundation chapters of the Bible must be treated as a mystical fairytale. To do this is neither scientific, nor safe for the soul. The majesty of God as Creator is stripped from Him and part of the Holy Bible (King James Version) is shredded.
