Three men stand out as highly influential in giving scientists their speculative theories of how matter and stars originated. Learning who they are, one is startled to think that their musings were accepted by the scientific community—especially in view of the fact, as we have shown elsewhere, that scientific evidence runs counter to their theories. This is science vs. evolution—a Creation-Evolution Encyclopedia, brought to you by Creation Science Facts.
This material is excerpted from the book, ORIGIN
An asterisk ( * ) by a name indicates that person is not known to be a creationist. Of over 4,000 quotations in the books this Encyclopedia is based on, only 164 statements are by creationists.
You will have a better understanding of the following statements by scientists if you will also read the web page, Origin of Matter.
The first one was *Emmanuel Swedenborg, who, by his own admission, in the year 1734 was told in a spiritualistic séance that gas in outer space twirled around and pushed itself into our sun and planets. He urged the theory upon others, thus becoming the primary source for the nebular hypothesis theory.
The second man was *George Gamow, who in 1949, began heavily publicizing the Big Bang theory, whereby nothing got together and exploded itself into hydrogen, which then formed itself into all our stars, planets, etc. His little cartoons and intriguing terms (such as ylem) fascinated the evolutionary-minded scientists. Then George, deciding to get paid for his science fiction stories, went full-time into writing it for the public. Several years later, he presented astronomers with a sequel to the Big Bang. This was the 80-billion-year cycle called the oscillation universe theory, whereby an outward expansion of the universe is followed by an inward collapse to a single dot less than an inch across—which then explodes outward again.
The third man was Fred Hoyle, who, in 1948, led out in publicizing the steady state universe theory, the teaching of spontaneous generation of matter (hydrogen) in outer space. A decade later, He also turned to full-time science fiction writing for a number of years, and later repudiated the theory as worthless.
That is where such theories come from: not from research workers armed with scientific facts, but from a spiritist and two top-flight fiction writers, who placed their dreams on paper and then urged them upon others.
