The Problem of Genesis

Since the time of Aristotle, scientists have declared that the universe has always existed. The first book of the Bible denies this statement. Genesis says that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth.” According to Genesis, there was a beginning prior to which there was nothing.

Einstein, using the laws of general relativity he developed, created a series of equations describing the condition of universe as dynamic and expanding. Astronomical redshift observations have confirmed that the universe is still expanding. Einstein, nonetheless, refused for many years to recognize that this meant that the universe did not always exist.

Einstein and the scientific community now agree that the Bible is accurate in reporting that there was a beginning. This was something the amateurs already knew.
