I Contemplate the Universe
You ever notice how secularists teach theories as fact? The Big Bang THEORY, Darwin's THEORIES, etc are all taught as if they were etched in stone -- like the 10 Commandments. Of course, this is a secular habit because they think proving science will disprove the existence of God.
Supernatural: 1. Of or relating to existence outside the natural world. 2. Attributed to a power that seems to violate or go beyond natural forces.
According to the dictionary definition, the Big Bang was supernatural, because it violated all laws of nature. First there was nothing and then there was something -- the universe. According to the Big Bang Theory, the entire universe was created in an instant.
One of most basic laws of science is the Law of the Conservation of Energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be changed from one form to another. Energy is not currently being created. The universe could not have created itself using natural processes, because nature did not exist before the universe came into existence. Something beyond nature must have created all the energy and matter that is observed today.
Then, we get to whatever happened after the Big Bang. According to the secularists, the energy of the universe RANDOMLY began to form itself into everything we have today. If the universe formed randomly, why isn't it random? Has it stopped forming? The fact is that nothing in the universe is random; everything, down to the tiniest subatomic particle, is perfect and predictable. If the universe were truly random, science would be impossible. You could not expect the same reaction in an experiment to occur twice in a row. But, the universe is so perfect that we can predict the existence of elements that we have never even seen. We know how one element will react when exposed to another -- for instance, Sodium, Cesium, Potassium, Lithium and Rubidium burn or explode when exposed to water. And, we know that there are elements that exist that have not yet been discovered. Why? Because, according to the laws of nature, they MUST exist.
We can postulate the existence of planets -- planets we cannot see -- by observing the effects of gravity on bodies in the region, because we know that there are laws of gravity and that the universe follows them.
The best science fiction writers have been scientists, or people who were familiar with science. Their predictions were considered prophetic, because much of what we have now did not exist when they wrote their pulp fiction. It wasn't prophetic. They knew what was possible. And, when you know what is possible, you can pretty well bet what will be probable.
Science explains the how, but it does not explain the why.
Why are there laws of nature and why does the universe obey them?
