The Gap Theory
It is widely known that historical geologists currently think the earth originated about 4.6 billion years ago, whereas the Bible indicates that "in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is" (Exodus 20:11).
The statistics of human populations give further support to this intimation. Ever since the famous studies of Malthus, it has been known that human populations (applied to animal populations by the first Charles Darwin, in developing his theory of evolution by natural selection) have tended to increase geometrically with time.
The Age of the Earth
As Bible believers we are always faced with the question of time. The 'molecules to men' model of Darwinian evolution requires an enormous amount of time to be factored in to the equation. It is really not much more than the 'magic ingredient' in the Theory of Evolution or the concept that given enough time, anything is possible.
Limitations of Human Logic
Since we understand that there are several dozen models for the universe, we must conclude that it isn't an easy process to construct a cosmological model from our observations. Is it comparative to ten people observing an accident? Do we not often get ten different renditions of what happened? How much more difficult is it for ten scientists to look into the cosmos and tell us what happened after the fact.
Microwave Background Radiation Problems
What is Microwave Background Radiation (MBR)? Our universe according to the BB theory, began with what George Gamow called the "primeval fireball." During the first second of existence, the universe went through various changes. Over several thousand years, matter changed as space expanded and cooled.
Quantum Theory Problems
What is the quantum theory? Quantum theory is concerned with the emission and absorption of energy by matter and with the motion of material particles; the quantum theory and the theory of relativity together form the theoretical basis of modern physics.
Galaxy Formation Problems
The problem of galaxy formation lies in the idea that most cosmologists believe the big-bang universe began as a smooth distribution of matter, and now appears to have become clumpy with galaxies, super-galaxies, voids, clusters, walls, and sheets of galaxies etc.
What are the Problems with the Big Bang Theory?
The purpose of this paper is to present to the reader a foundation upon which to understand some of the basics of the Big Bang Theory. More specifically, it will be an attempt to describe in brief many of the major problems with the theory as well as define the terms used.
Big Bang or Big Fizzle
The Big Bang is the popularized version of evolutionary cosmology. It states that matter, energy, and space were all compressed many billions of times smaller than a proton and then exploded for some undetermined reason to create an expanding universe which continues to spread today.
The Affirmation of the Scripture
We believe the inerrant word of God clearly states that the entire cosmos, including all the matter and energy contained therein, was created in six days. We identify these days of creation as six 24-hour periods of time. God could have created everything instantaneously fully formed, but as many Bible scholars have indicated
