Hmmm … A question that will create debates but for me to be honest I am not sure and I would love to find out really where it all started from since I am a scientist and we are so curious well generally people are always curious! 😉
Hi calandan .. I think that we have lots of evidence, collected from big telescopes, that the universe is expanding from some kind of event, that people usually call the big bang (about 13.7 billion years ago).
The earth was formed a long long long time after the big bang (about 4.5 billion years ago). I’m not sure what God was doing for all that time if all he cared about was making the earth.
The earth is an amazing place and its extraordinary that it’s such a comfortable place for life to evolve. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other places like earth somewhere else in the universe..
I’m not saying god didn’t make the earth, but the scientific explanation of how it happened without god has quite a lot of good evidence
I take a practical view on this. What scientist call “The Big Bang” other people may choose to call “God”. At the end, t all comes down to believing in something. I guess the break point comes when you believe that “God” actually has feelings for humanity of is just something that started everything off. I guess that is where religion and science differ.
