God's science vs Atheistic sci-fi response

10 February 2014, 09:02
Hi Charley, welcome back :)
Well, it truly disturbs me that you would spread such lies. You completely misunderstood how anything came to be according to the BBT. So let me correct a few of your mistakes.
Firstly, there were two gasses that comprised the singularity at the start of the universe. These were Hydrogen and Helium. It wasn't a ball of gas and two hardly makes several. All the mass of the universe was focused on one point. With a large mass focused on a small point, logically it would be incredibly dense. All that weight, bearing down on a single point causes a lot of pressure. Pressure in turn causes heat. What does heat do? Well, it expands. So the gasses expanded across the universe and began to cool.
Now, here you made another large error showing your lack of understanding of basic astrophysics. There were no new gasses miraculously created...the universe at this time existed out of Hydrogen and Helium. 
So now you ask what about all the other elements on our lovely periodic table, how did they come to exist in this universe of ours. Well...the answer lies within the stars...quite literally within the stars. When universe cooled...because what happens when you spread out something that is warm over a large area, it cools down...there were clouds of Hydrogen and Helium everywhere. Even the smallest atom has mass, and mass has gravity. Within the recesses of space where there is almost no gravity, Hydrogen started coming together due to their gravitational pull. Balls of Hydrogen started forming, small at first, but as they grew they attracted more Hydrogen towards themselves, growing bigger and bigger.
But now comes a problem. The tensile strength of Hydrogen gas is not all that can only support so much weight. At some point, it just gets too much for this ball to bear. This great big ball of Hydrogen implodes, crushed by its own gravity. But wait, all these atoms, so densely packed, rushing in to the ball's center causes a lot of friction. The heat, oh the heat is so immense that the atoms fuse with each other, thus creating a different element...Helium. With all this heat being generated, it does the one thing we know hot things do, it expands. But the mass is still the same, so it is imploding while it is expanding...and an equilibrium is formed.
With the star born through proper science, we must look on in it's future. Once all the atoms (well nearly all of them, there is still some Hydrogen left over from all of this) are converted to Helium, you have a very heavy, sodingly large ball of Helium. Well, guess what happens next. If you guessed that it freezes, you are wrong. It starts the process all over again. The ball collapses under it's incredible mass, the atoms once again super heated starts to fuse with each other forming...LITHIUM. Yes, it always goes one step lower on the periodic table. 
If the star is big enough, this cycle will continue till it reaches number 26 on the periodic table. Which element could this be and why would it stop there? Well, this element is FE...or Iron. Now don't think of a solid ball of iron in the sky, it's still so hot it's a gas, but the iron is to dense to fuse. So what is left for this star to do? Well simple really, lots of head, atoms colliding violently against each other at great speeds, unable to fuse so they bounce off each other. EXPLOSION. This mighty star explodes in one of the greatest shows of force the universe has ever seen.
But how does this help with the creation of elements? Well, remember I said that not all the elements fuse during this process? There are layers of different elements within the star and with this explosion gets spread throughout the universe at great speeds. Once some of these elements cool, such as Carbon, Silicon, Aluminium, Iron etc. they form solid objects. 
Now Charley...I have given you some insight as to where you went wrong with your piece. There was never just a ball off gasses that exploded for no reason. There was no explosion, it was a rapid expansion due to extreme heat. Other elements did not just "APPEAR MIRACULOUSLY", they were forged in the greatest oven in the universe. You used the phrase hard matter. There is no such thing. Look at water, it has it's solid form, which you would probably call hard matter because it is hard. Then you get it's liquid form...which can also be quite hard if you dive the wrong way into a pool. Then you get it's gas form. So hard matter is merely byproduct of temperature.
Now...lastly, you keep saying miraculously in a disdainful manner...but aren't you the one who believes in miracles...
