Intelligent Design
The Big Bang and Creation
When describing the Big Bang phenomenon, science uses the term creation.  That word
is employed because nothing else seems appropriate to convey the essence of Big Bang
theory: i.e. prior to Planck Time, something came out of nothing – namely primal matter
which was infinitesimally small, extremely dense and excessively hot – the explosion of
which began our expanding universe.  How did something come from nothing?  There is
no scientific explanation, so astrophysicists use the word creation – whether they are
theists or atheists.  So, it is either creation from Something – or creation from nothing.
What is so strange about this whole scenario is the accusation atheistic scientists make
concerning theistic scientists – namely that they are unscientific and religious to talk
about Intelligent Design.  But come to think of it, how scientific is it to say something
came from nothing?  In reality, such belief requires infinitely more faith than to believe
there is Intelligent Design behind the creation of the universe.
Anyone familiar with the laws of probability knows this field of science is used to
determine the mathematical possibility that something could randomly happen.  Let’s
take, for example, the DNA double helix.  What is the possibility of something like that
organizing itself randomly?  Anyone applying the laws of probability will tell you –
infinitely remote.  Yet, the opponents of Intelligent Design believe they can dismiss this
conclusion by saying it is unscientific and religious – even though the laws of probability
are good science.  How scientific is it to say the DNA double helix just happened!  In
reality, it takes infinitely more faith to believe this, or any other chance existence of some
aspect of creation, than to believe there was Intelligent Design in the first place.
To be honest, atheistic science has created a sacred cow – a kind of theoretical god called
chance and it has arbitrarily ruled out any other view simply by saying it is unscientific
and religious – even though it is completely reasonable.  In doing so, atheistic science has
opposed the very principle of scientific study it claims to support – free and unbiased
conclusions based on reasoned inquiry and deduction.
