Theism and Big Bang Cosmology

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter provides counter-arguments against Quentin Smith's atheistic interpretation of the Big Bang cosmology. It suggests that Smith's position is untenable because it lacks consistency, does not have a positive argument to commend it, and fails to escape the charge of metaphysical absurdity against it. It also explains that the Big Bang cosmological model does appear to constitute a powerful argument for the existence of a Creator of the universe.

Keywords: Big Bang cosmology; Quentin Smith; atheistic interpretation; existence of God; theism
