A question never fails to be asked is What caused the big bang? Why so? We should know what caused the “bang”: the force of gravity that is attractive, and is a pulling force or the unimaginable power of the pushing force of an explosion?
The abrupt appearance of the universe in a huge explosion is a paradox. Only gravity acts systematically on a cosmic scale and if so it ought to be contracting, not expanding. This force caused objects to implode rather than explode. For example, a highly compact star will be unable to support its own weight, and may collapse to form a neutron star or a black hole. But at the very outset of the universe no black hole was formed but a primeval explosion instead.
In the very instand of its creation the universe was expanding infinitely rapidly and in an extreemely precise rate: had the explosion been less extreme, then gravity would have overwhelmed producing something rather like a black hole. On the other hand did the universe explode more violently, we should not be here to ask such questions.
The big bang was an ad hoc initial condition. And there is simply no explanation for the “bang” we know: the big bang ”just happened”, and we are left uncomprehending as to why the force of the explosion had the strength that it did. —From: “A Naturalistic Account Of The Universe”, by Paul Davies.
What the Bible says:
Job 26: 10-14 [Jehovah God] marks out the horizon on the surface of the waters; He makes a boundary between light and darkness. The very pillars of heaven shake; They are stunned by his rebuke. Look! These are just the fringes of his ways; Only a faint whisper has been heard of him! So who can understand his mighty thunder?”
