Only 1 Big Bang
« on: October 02, 2008, 06:35:16 AM »

      In the winter of 1998, two separate teams of astronomers in Berkeley, California, made a similar, startling discovery. They were both observing supernovae — exploding stars visible over great distances — to see how fast the universe is expanding. In accordance with prevailing scientific wisdom, the astronomers expected to find the rate of expansion to be decreasing, Instead they found it to be increasing — a discovery which has since “shaken astronomy to its core” (Astronomy, October 1999).

     This discovery would have come as no surprise to Georges Lemaitre (1894-1966), a Belgian mathematician and Catholic priest who developed the theory of the Big Bang. Lemaitre described the beginning of the universe as a burst of fireworks, comparing galaxies to the burning embers spreading out in a growing sphere from the center of the burst. He believed this burst of fireworks was the beginning of time, taking place on “a day without yesterday.”

     After decades of struggle, other scientists came to accept the Big Bang as fact. But while most scientists — including the mathematician Stephen Hawking — predicted that gravity would eventually slow down the expansion of the universe and make the universe fall back toward its center, Lemaitre believed that the universe would keep expanding. He argued that the Big Bang was a unique event, while other scientists believed that the universe would shrink to the point of another Big Bang, and so on. The observations made in Berkeley supported Lemaitre’s contention that the Big Bang was in fact “a day without yesterday.”

     God did not create the Universe in a manner that means he would have to keep recreating it over and over. This ever expanding Universe proves that fact.

That's right.  The oscillating universe theory had it that the universe has been infinitely exploding outwards and imploding inwards.  While this would still seem to violate the laws of entropy, I think the latest find does all of the needed damage to that hypothesis.  If the expansion is not slowing down due to gravity, then there's no reason to believe that it ever will.  So gravity is of no apparent affect, actually, quite the opposite seems to be occurring.  Now, let's explore the other hypothesis that atheists demand.  There are an infinity of universes and we were one of the lucky ones with just the right properties to form, where life can happen. .. . . somewhere in it.  If we were to infinitely expand?  What's gonna happen eventually?  We're gonna collide with the other universes.  In fact, it should have already occurred an infinite number of times.  Well, looks like design just might be the only answer.

Musicman - thank you so much, for the life of me I could not remember what that theory was called, the Oscillating Universe Theory. Your exactly right, God really does know what he is doing after all. It is us puny humans who just think we are so smart. We are nothing and incapable of doing anything outside of God. Thank you for the reply.

Ps 113:6 Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
