Creation of the Universe
- A Powerful Effect...

The cause or Causer didn't create the Universe without leaving clues and tell-tale signs of His handiwork...


According to the Principle of Cause and Effect, the Universe is an effect. Logic dictates that every effect must have a cause. The question then naturally arises, how did the Universe come to be...Who or what caused it?

Scientists' Big Bang Theory
Using Einstein's General Relativity Theory, scientists theoretically trace the birth of the Universe to what they call the Big Bang.
Using theoretical models of the Big Bang, scientists project backwards in time (see SIDEBAR, Look-Back Time) to within microseconds of creation, an event referred to as Plank Time (10-43seconds).


Possible Clues?
Based upon these factors, what can be inferred concerning the cause or Causer of the Universe?

Let's review the evidence: 

  • Creation of Matter -from nothing
  • Creation of Energy -from nothing
  • Creation of Space -from nothing
  • Creation of Time -from nothing
  • The Strong Nuclear Force binds protons and neutrons together in the nucleus of the atom…(its energy keeps stars like our Sun burning).
  • The Gravitational Force, weakest among the forces, curves Space, causes orbits, holds galaxies together and holds us on Earth.
  • The Electromagnetic Force is the phenomenon responsible for electricity and emission of photons (light); holds electrons in orbit around atomic nuclei and keeps them apart.
  • The Weak Nuclear Force splits neutrons, causing radioactivity. 
  • The Universe is immense; scientists estimate its diameter at 28 billion light years, (which they claim is expanding).
  • Our Sun is only one of the more than 200 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy.
  • Our Milky Way Galaxy is only one of the 125 billion galaxies in the observable universe.
  • It is estimated that there are between 1022 - 1024 stars in the Universe (i.e., from 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)
  • The most distant galaxies we can now see are 10 to 12 billion light years away.
  • Our solar system is located 30,000 light years from the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.
  • The nearest solar system to us, Proxima Centauri, is 4.2 light years away (about 25 trillion miles).
  • The nearest big galaxy to ours is the Andromeda Galaxy, 2.5 million light years away.

According to the Principle of Cause and Effect, the Universe is an effect of the grandest scale imaginable. Its cause or Causer must be sufficiently powerful to have instantly brought the Universe into existence —from nothing.

Implication:  Omnipotence

Reason: Whoever or whatever caused creation is All-Powerful


Look-Back Time (Looking back in time)

Light travels at a fixed velocity (i.e., speed). When we observe distant objects, we are actually seeing them as they were when the light left them.

For example, the Sun is about 93 million miles away. It takes light 8.5 minutes to reach Earth. When we look at the Sun, we're actually looking back in time at it - 8.5 minutes ago.
