It is interesting to note that secularists can speculate with all sorts of (even way out) ideas concerning the origin of the universe, and it is written up as serious scientific research—without receiving ridicule. For instance, read the following:
But a Canadian scientist and his British co-researcher, perhaps convinced that the end of Oprah [the TV show] doesn’t yet seem insignificant enough in the grand scheme of things, have published a paper outlining the possibility that this universe is just one of many that have existed through infinite time, and that black holes — super-dense nodes of nothingness scattered across the expanse of space — could be key to proving their mind-bending theory.
Although other scientists disagree with them, nonetheless, they are not mocked.
However, as soon as a Christian mentions “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth,” they are usually greatly ridiculed by such writers and these researchers.
Even in this article about the universes existing through infinite time, there is a slam at the Bible’s account of origins. The article goes on to state the following:
But he compares the quest to the way 19th-century geologists and other scientists, including Charles Darwin, pioneered new ways of interpreting rock layers and began to develop the idea that life actually evolved over “deep time” — millions and even billions of years — rather than appearing abruptly a few millennia ago, as suggested by the Bible.
To me, such an attack on the Bible is a reminder that we are in a spiritual battle. Why is it that secular scientists can suggest all sorts of way out ideas and be taken seriously, but as soon as Christians talk about the Bible’s account of history, they are ridiculed? Romans 1 reminds us that men “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” As the Bible teaches us, if one is not for Christ, then that one is against! There is no neutrality in this spiritual battle. People would not react the way they do about what the Bible teaches if it was not a spiritual battle. For me, this is a confirmation that what the Bible teaches about the state of man is true.
You can read the rest of this article.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. (Romans 1:18–23)
