How about explaining what led up to the Big Bang. And, if you never wondered WHY the Big Bang happened, what difference does it make how it happened?
Sorry that science is so disappointing. In the last 100 years science has only uncovered and explained the last 13+ billion years. Science is such a failure.
At least we believe God has existed "from everlasting to everlasting. And that God had an intelligent plan and purpose in creation."
Belief is not science. What is believe is not necessarily fact.
It takes as much faith to believe in a Big Bang as it does to believe in the Garden of Eden.
The 'Big Bang' is a theory that was developed out of the observable evidence and has been used to make thousands of predictions. That is how science works and is validated. Scientific theories neither need nor require faith. They are either supported or not by the evidence.
There is no evidence for a Garden of Eden and a lot of evidence to suggest that it is the result of metaphorical writing. The story contains many spiritual ideas and moral teachings that disappear with a literal reading.
<quoted text> Big Bang? Poof! Abrakadabra ! Bippity Boppity Boo!
<quoted text> The universe has the capacity for "life-ing." And you think believers in God are ignorant and living in la la land?
That is based on the evidence:
1. The universe appears to exist.
2. The universe now appears to contain life.
3. At one time the universe did not contain life.
Hence the universe is "life-ing"*
Again, I happen to believe in Elohim (Yahweh), but my god has no issues with science nor does he require that I have any.
