The bottom line is that no matter what your worldview is, there HAS to be an uncreated creator of the universe. We call that "God." Atheists would have you believe that there was some other first cause but it all comes back to something greater than the universe, outside of time, space and matter, had to create it in the first place. Atheists would like to believe that this was some impersonal "force" but as the comments above show, design is evident everywhere, that everything just didn't come together by chance. God is simply the most reasonable explanation of how the universe started, how life began, why we are here and where we are going.
It isn't that so much that Christian don't know science, Christians and to a lesser extent Jews, are responsible for most of the foundations of discovery as well as the science itself. Sir Isaac Newton wrote more about the New Testament than he did physics. Einstein was a devout Jew who lost his faith, but later in life came to be a deist and insisted fervently that God created the Universe making him a "design theory guy". The issue is scientists no longer know the bible. We as Christians need to bring it to them and the origins of the universe is a great place to start. The big bang theory states that the universe exploded into being, including all matter and laws of matter, from nothing. In short there was a beginning. Christians and Jews have been preaching this for 6000 years. The whole world believed the universe was eternal before Einstein proved there was a beginning, just like The Bible says, with his Theory of Relativity...the precursor to the Big Bang Theory. Following up on the Big Bang Theory, and what might have ignited the Big Bang itself, science has settled on String Theory which explains the causation mathematically (strong proof). String Theory says a sound wave was the catalyst to the Big Bang. Stunningly for some, The Bible says the same thing: "GOD said" = spoke = SOUND "let there be light". Now I ask you: What are the chances, do you think, that a band of bronze age, tent dwelling, nomadic goatherders got this right?
Well, we can see in Scripture, Genesis1:1"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth". This is literally the first line of Scripture in the Bible. As we observe the world around us, we see order, design, artistry, detail and genius that a "Big Bang" would be hard-pressed at best to make. As we look closer at DNA and the intricacy of our own bodies, let alone insects, animals and how all of nature works in harmony, it is evidence of a Creator. Revelation 4:11 tells us "Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory, honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will, they existed and were created"
The question is how can we not know? Who has the power to create what we see, feel, hear, and smell? Man certainly didn't do that, it had to be of a supreme being. Not 'a god,' but God. He spoke and it was so. Evolution can not explain this matter, I believe the word of God.
