GOD: new evidence


How old is the Universe?

'God and the Big Bang' #08

What's in the series?      Previous: The Contributors

How old is the universe? The scientific evidence points to the Universe having a definite moment of creation, in an intense fireball, fourteen billion years ago. This ‘Big Bang’ was fine tuned so that our lives today are possible. For the astronomers and physicists we’ve been talking to in these programmes, there isn’t any conflict between this scientific evidence and their faith in God.

One of the biggest points of tension is that the Bible seems to say the world was made in six days, and the scientific evidence says it took fourteen billion years. In this video we ask how they solve this difficulty.

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.

Test of Faith

‘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
