In the 1920s some bishop suggested the big bang to the scientists.I wonder where he got the idea from.

You're right, it is in the Qur'an. If it was unrealistic then it wouldn't be the most convincing theory yet!

أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَنَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ كَانَتَا رَتْقًا فَفَتَقْنَاهُمَا وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاء كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?

Are you suggesting that he could have got the idea from the holy Qur'an? Sounds about right!

What is your Source for this claim? I hate to inform you but the Big Bang theory was not created on the basis of some rumours from the religious community; it was designed on the basis of scientific evidence.

no wait some Bishop went to Einstein and suggested about it.

BIG BANG THEORY. *Georges Lemaitre*, a Belgian priest, PREDICTED from his reworking of Einstein's theories, that space would be found to be expanding. Einstein himself at first resisted the implications but later applauded them. The expansion of space was soon confirmed. An IMPLICATION of Lemaitre's theories was background radiation. He was notified of the discovery of this radiation as he lay dying. A note found in Lemaitre's manuscripts said "It all had to have begun with light." His was the first scientific-mathematical creation theory, soon supplanted by better models. It is interesting to note that *Bishop Robert Grosseteste*, studying light, advocated (on philosophical-theological grounds) a primitive Big Bang expansionist theory in the thirteenth century

Greetings,

What scientific statements are there in the Qur'an? It's not a book of science, is it?

Peace

no it isn't but there are.

Do those who disbelieve not see that the heavens and the earth were sewn together and then We unstitched them and that We made from water every living thing? So will they not believe? (Qur'an, 21:30)

from:http://-----------------------/scientific_05.html


And it is We Who have constructed the heaven with might, and verily, it is We Who are steadily expanding it. (Qur'an, 51:47)
