WHOMP! There it is!

I saw this story on Fox News. I thought it interesting that they found “Proof” of the big bang. I’ve been scratching my head over this concept since I first read of it way back in the early 1970s. OK, so there was a big bang. So what? Someone had to light the fuse. I’ve had no problem with that theory of the origin of the universe. In fact, there can be only one explanation … Intelligent Design. So science has done what it is designed to do: make observations, draw conclusions and provide explanations and proof of how things work.
Check out what the article said… Astronomers have discovered what they believe is the first direct evidence of the astonishing expansion of the universe in the instant following the Big Bang (In the beginning) — the scientific explanation for the birth of the universe some 13.8 billion years ago. (God created the heavens and the earth)
Scientists believe that the universe exploded from a tiny speck and hurled itself out in all directions in the fraction of a second that followed, roughly one trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second, after the universe’s birth. Matter ultimately coalesced hundreds of millions of years later into planets, stars, and ultimately us. (And the earth was without form and void. And darkness was upon the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God hovered above the waters)
And like ripples from a ball kicked into a pond, that Big Bang-fueled expansion caused ripples in the ancient light from that event, light which remains imprinted in the skies in a leftover glow called the cosmic microwave background. (And God said, “Let there be light!” And there was light.)
Scientists still don’t know who kicked the ball. (But we do. In fact we are on a first name basis with Him.) You can read the entire article at the following page: http://www.foxnews.com/science/2014/03/17/major-discovery-smoking-gun-for-big-bang-expansion-found/
I don’t see the problem here, There may be some debate about the time factor, but since we are dealing with an Infinite Creator, what’s 6000 or even 13.8 billion years when compared to eternity?
Think about it… The universe is created, nothing has any form and suddenly we have light. This all took place in a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a second. May have been quick but it still happened in that order… Creation, formless, light. Sound familiar? Have a quick look at the scripture again … “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.” (Genesis 1:1-3 NASB)
I do not understand how an intelligent person can look into the heavens and say it was all by accident. Now we may disagree with the nature of the designer, but there was a designer.
All things are possible through Christ Jesus
