Actually like all scientific concepts, the Big Bang makes no theological claims. Which is why many Christians have no problem with accepting the Big Bang, they just think that God was ultimately responsible for it.<quoted text>
well the obvious point was...if the steady state theory was the basis of your argument...it would simply nullify the idea of a the universe having a beginning...where as, the big bang theory is basically 'creation' without god.
Not really. We understand your point that one event leads to another (eventually that is). But the validity of scientific concepts is not troubled by separating them from other areas. For example, the theory of gravity works without referencing the origin of mass (the Big Bang). And the germ theory of disease works without having to reference the origin of germs (abiogenesis). So no, the theory of evolution does not have to explain the Big Bang either. Nor abiogenesis for that matter.To imply that the formation of, and the on going processes of the universe, has nothing to do with evolution is quite unrealistic.
