With Stephen Hawking gone, you may have been wondering who could take his place as the world’s leading cosmologist. Well, dear reader, we have the answer. It’s Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia,, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
In case you have doubts, take a look at what he just posted at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Is a Second Big Bang Coming? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
“Our universe may end the same way it was created: with a big, sudden bang.” This is the opening line of a recent article on Business Insider [A 2nd ‘Big Bang’ could end our universe in an instant — and it’s all because of a tiny particle that controls the laws of physics]. This article highlighted research from a group of Harvard physicists who claim the universe might end with an “instantaneous bang” in 10139 years (that’s 10 million trillion trillion . . . with a lot more trillions of years after it).
Wow! We hadn’t heard of that. We searched at PhysOrg but they didn’t have anything. Fortunately, Business Insider provides a link that led us to the published paper in Physical Review D: Scale-invariant instantons and the complete lifetime of the standard model, which you can read online. It’s 42 pages long. We didn’t read it, but we searched it for “big bang” and got no hits. Anyway, we can confidently rely on Hambo to explain it to us. He says:
Here’s their thinking: they believe the Higgs boson particle, a particle in quantum physics that gives other particles their mass, could become destabilized. This could lead to an explosion of energy “that would consume everything in the known universe and upend the laws of physics and chemistry.” Perhaps the destabilization could be caused by “curvature of space-time around a black hole” somewhere in the universe.
But have no fear. Ol’ Hambo says they’re wrong — totally wrong. He explains why:
Now, these physicists made a mistake by ignoring the history — and future — revealed to us in God’s Word. The universe didn’t start with a big bang. It started when God spoke things into existence. And it’s important to note that the Big Bang idea is based on naturalism and has the stars and sun coming before the earth — whereas the Bible states that God created the earth before the sun and stars.
That’s very comforting. We don’t have to worry about what might happen 10139 years from now. He continues:
And the universe isn’t going to end with this so-called “second big bang” (and it’s not going to end with a “heat death,” another model of universe’s end). It’s going to end in a fiery judgment when God judges sin. [Scripture quote.] Maybe we could call that God’s big bang that will end everything! But it’s a very different sort of big bang!
Fascinating. So what’s going to happen? Let’s read on:
The universe isn’t going to last 10139 years — though we don’t know when Jesus will return, he said he would return “soon” [scripture reference], which is not in trillions of years! The only reason he is delaying his return is because he is giving people time to come to repentance [scripture reference].
Egad — The End of the universe is coming soon! Hambo finishes with this:
Our prayer is that if these physicists don’t know Christ, they will repent before he returns or before their life ends and they stand before him. Repent and believe the gospel today!
So there you are, dear reader. Those physicists don’t know anything. Hambo is the world’s greatest cosmologist, and he says you should repent. Do it now, before it’s too late!
