From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“Scientists admit that their theories become total speculation when they attempt to describe what “was” the moment just before the universe came into being.
However, their current theories suggest the universe began as/with an explosion.  Not an explosion as we may think, where something expands from a center into the space around it.  In this theory, space itself and everything we can see in it exploded into being, ostensibly from nothingness.  In simplistic terms, at one point the universe was not, then it and time began.  It is that moment of initiation of the universe that scientists think they can describe theoretically with some degree of clarity and certainty.  This scientific theory sounds very much like Genesis 1:  3, wherein it is recorded, “Then God said, ‘Let there be light’, and there was light.” Thus, science seems to be converging on or moving towards a rapprochement with the truth as it is recorded in the Bible.””
