Modern Science has positioned itself as the reigning authority of the observable. I am willing to permit them this authority as long as they are willing to extend faith in God and the Bible equal authority of the unobservable.
The origin of the universe is unobservable.
Atheist have no answer to the origin of the universe. Consider that things that exists must come into existence at some point. There are only two possibilities of the origin of the universe.
1. It has been in infinite existence having no beginning. This would contradict the second law of thermodynamics. This law deals with entropy. The fact that the universe is going from a higher amount of complex energy to a lesser amount of inferior energy.
2. The universe had a starting point. The problem with this is atheist have no explanation for this starting point. Each version of the evolutionary origin of the universe begins with matter already in existence. Where the matter came from is a “matter” of faith.
Because the origin of the universe is not answered by science nor can the progression of “evolution” be observed by science. We can choose to make up an origin much the same way our parents told fairy tales before bed. Or we can trust God’s word and believe the Bible’s account of the beginning.
I think the Bible should be the authority of the unobservable. Let’s limit science to the things it can observe.
