About this project
GOD'S BIG BANG!
"God's Big Bang!" is a documentary film that investigates the question of whether faith and science can get along, or are they eternally destined to be sworn enemies. Does the Big Bang Theory automatically disqualify the possibility of an Intelligent Design by an all omnipotent God? And does the belief in an Intelligent Design by an all omnipotent God automatically disqualify the possibility of the Big Bang? This premise will serve as the driving force behind the film. Does the Holy Bible’s description of creation fit with what we know from physics and science?
The documentary will be partially narrated, but will ultimately be host driven along with experts in their respective fields that will serve as contributors. Animations and NASA/Hubble footage will add to the graphically aesthetic nature of the film. We will also include footage from the host’s own telescope and astrophotography that will be shot for the documentary, to create that “backyard astronomer” kind of feel.
Both secular and Christian physicists, scientists and astronomers will be interviewed and their views will be presented. Priests, Pastors, Rabbis, and Atheists will also be interviewed for the film. The most up to date research and discoveries will be presented. Alternate theories of creation and the start of the universe will also be explored. Does accepting an “old earth” perspective take away from the creation story in Genesis?
Rich and beautiful images of stars, planets, clusters, nebulae and galaxies will be featured to display the glory and majesty of the universe. The film will refute and/or challenge the view that the cosmos was created by random chaos. In the end, it will be shown that the universe was designed with purpose and in the way the Bible describes. Special focus will be given to Bible verses that mention astronomical objects and events.
God’s Big Bang Section Outline
Section 1 – Introduction to our Solar System
In this section we will explore some of the most amazing facts and attributes about earth. We’ll be analyzing the importance of gravity, oxygen, water, atmosphere and distance from the sun. We’ll talk about man’s desire to explore our solar system. There will be animations that feature both star and planetary comparisons. Then we’ll move out into the Milky Way and talk about the number of stars and possible planets in our own galaxy. Calculations will be presented on the possibility of inter-planetary and inter-galactic travel based on our current level of technology. How big is our sun compared to other stars in the galaxy and known universe? How big is the Milky Way in comparison to neighbouring galaxies? Much time will be spent observing nebulae, star clusters and other wondrous deep space objects.
Section 2 – The Coolest Things in the Universe
This section will feature stunning videos and photos as well as expert interviews as we explore some of the most amazing objects in the known universe. We’ll explore such phenomena as super-novae, cosmic microwaves, nebulae, dark energy and matter, neutrinos, quasars, neutron stars, pulsars and black holes.
Section 3 – The 10 Top Things Man Believed That Turned Out Not to be True
In this section we’ll explore various topics that at one time were scientific absolutes but over time as man acquired knowledge and information, things began to change. Items such as the world being flat; Neptune being an invisible planet; comets being harbingers of doom; Einstein’s belief in a fixed universe; that atoms could not be divided; quarks did not exist; celestial immutability; a heliocentric solar system; and more.
Section 4 – Exploring Theories of How the Universe Began
While there are literally dozens of theories that exist, such as black hole theory, time’s arrow, brane and the no time theory—In this section we will focus and feature on the top three theories of the origins of the universe: A) That God created the universe. B) The universe created itself—The Big Bang. C) The universe has always existed.
Section 5 – What Does the Bible Say About the Creation of the Universe?
In this final section of the film, we will explore what the Holy Bible has to say about the creation of the universe and the very world that we live in. Most people will be surprised to learn how much the Bible has to say on the matter. In ancient times, people were very aware of the stars above them. We’re going to test the scriptures that deal with creation against what we know in modern science and physics.
After analyzing all the theories and listening to all the experts and looking at all the deep space objects, we must ask ourselves one question…What’s easier to believe? …that the universe started itself from nothing? …or that an omnipotent God created the universe? Which takes more faith . . . ?
