Big Bang Cosmology and Creation
How should we understand the origin, history, and size of our universe in connection with a Christian worldview? This talk considers aspects of cosmology from the ancients, through early modern science, to Einstein’s theories, and ways of relating science and Scripture. Evidences for and limits of big bang theory are presented. The talk will be followed by an extended period of audience participation, discussion, questions and answers.
