The evidence that the universe had a beginning - 'God and the Big Bang' video series #2
Many people think that science and faith tell conflicting stories about the beginning of the universe. But the scientific picture is of a definite moment of creation in a vast cosmic explosion - the 'Big Bang' - which had to be carefully adjusted for human life to be possible. Far from conflicting, the scientific picture points us towards a supernatural creator God.
'God and the Big Bang' is a series of eight videos featuring astronomers and physicists who accept the scientific account of the Big Bang, and who also believe in a God who created us:
Dr. Peter Bussey is a particle physicist working on the search for the Higgs Boson; Gerald Gabrielse is Leverett Professor of Physics at Harvard University; Owen Gingerich is emeritus Professor of Astronomy and History of Science at Harvard University; Dr. Nick Saunders is a theologian and physicist who designed some of the instruments on the Large Hadron Collider; Dr. Jennifer Wiseman is Senior Project Scientist on the Hubble Space Telescope.
'Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.' - Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
