There are two scientific theories which seem to disprove the story of Creation in the Bible – the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution.
Briefly, the Big Bang Theory states that the universe was once in an extremely hot and dense state that expanded rapidly. It cooled and formed the stars and planets, and is continually expanding.
The Theory of Evolution states that life on earth began with bacteria that evolved over billions of years, becoming all plants and all animal life, and through apes, became man.
The Bible describes, in simple, non-scientific terms, the creation of life, the earth and the universe in six days.
The Big Bang Theory and Theory of Evolution are taught in most U.S. schools, colleges and universities, with the assumption that they are scientific fact. This leads many people to believe that the Bible is outdated, untrue and written by ancient people who were ignorant or naive. So, today, people who believe that the Bible is true must also be ignorant or naive, or in denial, right?
