Let There Be Light

Marcus J. Borg comments that the big-bang theory is remarkably similar to God’s first act of creation: Let there be light. One scientist observes on the big-bang theory:

For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.
