“The Big Bang is not in contradiction with the faith”
These are the words of Roman Catholic priest Jose Gabriel Funes . He spoke about the creation of the Universe at a Feb. 2 announcement of a Vatican exhibit that will feature photos, research tools and minerals from the Moon and Mars.
The director of the Vatican Observatory said that the Church is open to the scientific theory that the world began from a cosmic explosion billions of years ago.
“The Big Bang is not in contradiction with the faith, ” Father Jose Gabriel Funes said during a Feb. 2 announcement of a Vatican exhibit that will feature photos, research tools and minerals from the Moon and Mars.
The exhibit titled “Stories from another world: The Universe within us and outside us,” will be on display March 10 – July 1 in Pisa, the birthplace of Galileo, the father of modern astronomy.
Fr. Funes told CNA at the event that the Big Bang explanation “is the best theory we have right now about the creation of the universe.”
The theory holds that creation began some 14 billion years ago with a colossal explosion in which space, time, energy and matter were created, and galaxies, stars and planets – which are in continual expansion – came to be.
“We know that God is the creator,” he added, “that He is a good Father who has a providential plan for us, that we are his children, and that we everything we can learn by reason about the origin of the universe is not in contradiction with the religious message of the Bible.”

The final antichrist will utter blasphemies, and promote lawlessness.
The Roman Catholic Church is an apostate Church, and have earlier branded the first book of the Bible as mythology.
Father Jose Gabriel Funes is a Jesuit priest.
The Jesuit order has been given the task to create confusion in regards to the validity of the Word of God.
The Roman Catholic educationists are in agreement with mainstream New Age doctrines that are based on a mix of the Bible and human wisdom. The Jesuits are called to lead people to believe in Papal dogmas.
If you believe the fist book of the Bible is mythology, you open up for the full Jewish Bible might be a very limited version of truth.
If the book of Genesis is based on mythology, the validity of the Jewish homeland might be a buff. Just like Islam claim. Rome will like to argue that the ancient prophet Moses might have had some skills in astronomy and science, but his skills must have been rather limited.
By acknowledging the Big Bang, the Vatican sides with New Age. Both the Roman Catholic Church and the New Age movement believe that the full Bible is just one version of the truth, and do not express how the Earth and the Sun was created.
Like most most other religious stuff , the Bible explains to us one possible way to “god”.
God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
The Sun, the stars and the Earth is created by Father, Son and Holy Spirit. A human mind can not set the exact day. Because no human being know the length of God’s days, before the Sun was created. The Sun was created on the forth day.
God spoke beings into existence. God is omniscience, and is not bound by the law of physics. God did not have to use cosmic energy to create.
