It is the question that scientists, sociologists, theorists and various others have dedicated extensive research towards, never finding the answer. It is the question that we will never get the answer too. At least not in our lifetime.
From our global understanding, the Big Bang Theory is the current cosmological model for the early development of the universe. It aims to tell us what happened from the very beginning, and physics and astronomy studies have shown beyond reasonable doubt that our universe had a beginning.
But with the discussion of The Big Bang Theory, comes the question of God. Cosmogony is an area where science and theology come together. The beginning of creation was a supernatural event. So does that mean is there a supernatural being behind this all?
Coming from an Agnostic perspective, Sam Boardman believes that:
“God is just a placeholder. It gives people hope and purpose for their lives.”
Doing extensive research into science, he understands that energy cannot be made nor destroyed. Energy for Sam is where it originates, but does not know what created that energy. However, it is important to him to make the most of his time on earth doing what he loves, what he’s passionate about, and spending time with people he loves.
Growing up with Andrew, his faith has always been strong for God. With the bible being absolute truth for many Christians, it was interesting to see that Catholics do not believe Creationism to be absolute truth. Andrew states that:
“The Big Bang was first theorised by a Catholic priest in 1927. His name was Monseigneur Georges Lemaître. I know a lot of Christians such as Protestants and anglicans believe in bible literalism, but that is not Catholic doctrine.”
The meaning of life for Andrew is:
“Loving yourself and loving the one who created you. He is the Messiah and we must do our best not to sin while we are alive and on earth.”
Does God exist? Philosophers are in agreement that a transcendent Law Giver is the only credible explanation for an objective moral standard. Who gave us this conscience? Molecular biology have revealed various amounts of information within each and every living cell, discovering upon thousands of exquisitely deigned machines at the molecular level. This requires intelligence and design. It is evident that the existence of these questions is fundamental. The answer is hidden, but it is our choice to be in control of our lives and provide our own answer and conclusions.
