While doing research on the subject of creation recently, I have meditated on this beautiful verse.

"The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands."

So I have been thinking about this hypothetical question:

How much glory would God receive for starting the Big Bang? (Please this is not a debate about the science or interpretation of Genesis 1.)

To me it is so much more wonderful that God said "Let there be lights in the heavens and ..." which produced everything that modern astronomy shows us of a universe that stretches for 14 billion light-years (distance regardless of time). Billions upon billions of starts, planets, nebula, and other wonders that I can't even name. And so beautiful. So big! So much energy! Evolution says all this beauty happened by chance. If someone says that God created the big bang, aren't they also saying what happened after that in the heavens occurred by chance?

If God does not receive glory for creating the big bang, then according to Psalm 19:1, God did not use the big bang to create.

Please post your opinion: does God receive as much glory for creating the Big Bang as opposed to 6 days of creation? Look at it from the observer's point of view over the past 6000 years. Again, please don't debate me on science, or the interpretation of Genesis 1 because that's not the point. Here I am exploring whether this is an independent evidence of six-day creation or young earth (YEC).

This is one of my favorite Psalms as well. It is apparent from this scripture as others in the Psalms like 24:2, 89:11, etc (and of course Genesis) that the Lord's work is orderly, not chaotic. He did not "throw everything together". The Big Bang seems to be in direct contrast to what we learn about God's work in the Bible. I don't think anyone would see the this theory or any Old Earth perspective in the Bible unless they were looking hard (too hard).
