The Order of Events

Did God Use the Big Bang?

This is Ken Ham, president of the apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis and the Ark Encounter.


Many Christians have bought into the idea that God used the big bang to create the universe. But did you know the order of events in Genesis directly contradicts the big bang?

According to secular ideas about the origin of the universe, stars evolved long before our planet. But Scripture teaches God created earth on Day One, and the stars on Day Four.

Also, when earth supposedly finally evolved, it was a hot molten blob that slowly cooled. Then water could collect. But in Genesis, earth was created covered in water.

If God used the big bang, the order of events in Genesis is utterly meaningless. Why would He record it for us in that order if it didn’t happen that way?

God didn’t use the big bang!
