Product Description

This powerful resource shows that the big-bang theory cannot explain the universe, but the Bible can, so Christian leaders no longer have reason to insert big-bang theory into Genesis. It includes within its pages:
  • Easy summaries of all the main points
  • A brief history of cosmology
  • The big bang model, including origins of stars, planets, and life
  • The biblical creation model, including the views of Moses and Jesus
  • The errors in evolutionary time scales

    In modern times, the Bible has become increasingly disconnected from most Christians' understanding of the real world. Cosmology - the way we think about the universe - has come to be totally dominated by secular beliefs, such as the Big Bang. Many Christians, including prominent leaders, have therefore felt compelled to "reinterpret" the Bible in the light of big-bang thinking.

    To its credit, the Big Bang is an interesting and worthwhile scientific theory, and it is the best candidate that materialists have been able to put forward to this point to try to explain the universe without God, but it is demonstrably inadequate, to say the least. Big-bang theory cannot explain the origin of the universe or of the significant objects within it (i.e., galaxies, stars, planets, and people). Big-bang theory contains no credible or consistent naturalistic cause to explain what we see.

    Dismantling the Big Bang reveals these scientific and philosophical weaknesses at the core of big-bang thinking and the contradictions to which they lead. Written on a level that laypeople can understand, it comparatively shows the intellectual superiority of the history of the universe given in the Bible as a basis for our thinking about the cosmos. We need to rediscover how to think about the universe in the only way that makes sense - from God's perspective, in the light of the history given in His Word.

      "Dismantling the Big Bang" is an excellent book about the big bang, its problems, and other cosmological origins models (including young-age ones). Of the books I've read on this topic, these authors have done the best job at clearly explaining what can be complicated ideas. The book was very readable (written in a conversational tone) and easy to follow. It included black and white photographs and illustrations. I'd highly recommend it for high school students and adults.

      Chapter 1 gave a historical overview of cosmological ideas throughout recorded history. Chapter 2 explained the basic assumptions that everyone has to make in the study of origins. Chapter 3 explained what chance and physics can account for in cosmology. Chapter 4 explained the Big Bang model (including the variations that are commonly held), what it can't and doesn't explain, and other problems. Chapter 5 explained how people try to measure age when they don't actually know the starting date and the assumptions made in these methods. It also covered some of the different young-age creationist origin models for the universe and how they deal with the "distant starlight" problem.

      Chapter 6 covered what the Bible says about the origin of and in general about the universe and how that compares to what we obverse in the universe today. It briefly covered the theological and linguistic problems with several of the compromise positions (which say God created, but the universe is billions of years old). Chapter 7 compared the Big Bang model to the biblical model to see which best fit the evidence. There's also a comparison chart in Appendix C. Chapter 8 took a brief look at the current trends in cosmology to see where future study will probably be concentrated.

      The appendixes included a brief look at other naturalistic models for the origin of the universe, an explanation of the theological consequences of compromise, a chart comparing the Big Bang model to the biblical explanation for the origin of the universe, and an open letter by (naturalistic) cosmologists stating that the Big Bang model has fatal flaws and that funding and scientific magazine space should also be given to alternative models.

      I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
