Part 1 : Creation of the World
Before We start the next Part, a quick summary from Part 1.
As per Bible, World has Created by God just 4004 (6000 Years back) BCE before and also we have started Svayambhuva Manu age from 4100-4000 BCE.
Western scholars are using it widely to prove, that there were no culture before that era. Hence, there were no existence of Human and other species and also pelting stones of Aryan Invasion Theory (Don’t worry, Will blow it) on Great Indian Culture and also proving wrong theory of Manvantras (14 Manvantras) and ChaturYuga (71 Chaturyuga Eqaul to 1 Manvantra) etc..
Well, we will post it latter about the age of Manvantras and Yugas, for now we are moving on Science Conclusion.
Stephen Hawking says universe not created by God
God did not create the universe, the man who is arguably Britain’s most famous living scientist says in a forthcoming book.
In the new work, The Grand Design, Professor Stephen Hawking argues that the Big Bang, rather than occurring following the intervention of a divine being, was inevitable due to the law of gravity.
In his 1988 book, A Brief History of Time, Hawking had seemed to accept the role of God in the creation of the universe. But in the new text, co-written with American physicist Leonard Mlodinow, he said new theories showed a creator is “not necessary”.

Beliefs about creation and evolution
- Cosmology is thestudy of the universe, and humanity’s place in it.
- One of the theories put forward by cosmologists is the Big Bang theory. This suggests that about 15,000 million years ago there was a massive explosion. This was the point at which all matter in the universe began; space and time began then too. Over time the universe that we know, and human and animal life, emerged.
- This theory is generally accepted by scientists as being the best theory they have to explain the origins of the universe.
- If this theory is true, then it could mean that the universe ‘just happened’ and that it did not emerge as a result of the activity of a creator God.
- The idea that life might have evolved was first mentioned as early as the 4th century CE by St Augustine, who wrote that God probably only created very simple life forms and that these developed over time.
- Today we associate evolutionary science with scientists such as Charles Darwin who wrote ‘On the Origin of Species’ in 1859. He argued that life begin with very simple cells and later developed into what we see today. He said that Natural Selection was one of the major mechanisms driving evolution.
- Darwin upset many people with his views and even some respected scientists such as Philip Gosse argued that the fossils which were discovered in the ground had been placed there by God deliberately to fool people.
All life on Earth may have come from clay according to new scientific research – just as the Bible, Koran and even Greek mythology have been suggesting for thousands of years.
The latest theory is that clay – which is at its most basic, a combination of minerals in the ground – acts as a breeding laboratory for tiny molecules and chemicals which it ‘absorbs like a sponge’.
The process takes billions of years, during which the chemicals react to each other to form proteins, DNA and, eventually, living cells, scientists told the journal Scientific Reports.

Genesis And Science: More Aligned Than You Think?
“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.“ – Albert Einstein, 1941.
Genesis, in the first chapter of the Old Testament, is the biblical story of the creation of Earth and life and tells the story in the form of a seven-day period. This essay is not about the seven days (here we will assume that the “days” are allegorical); this is about what Genesis says happened on each of those seven days of creation.
The following explores the possibility of reconciling what’s in each of the seven days of creation in Genesis with the prevailing information of contemporary science. I think you may find the results quite astounding.
This is not the first time this has been attempted, but this is a shorter and more readable version.
It has been reviewed by a prominent rabbi and a prominent professor of biological, geological, and earth sciences.
Historians say the Old Testament of the Bible, including Genesis, is an anthology of literature taken from poems, songs, oral stories and ancient scrolls. It was written mostly in Hebrew over many centuries by many people, including Hebrew scholars, various scribes, and others. The religious interpretation, according to the Bible, says Genesis was written by Moses as directed by God. Either way, it was written over 4000 years ago.
Below are listed the seven days of creation, day by day, and what happened according to Genesis in the Old Testament. With each day we examine how it corresponds with current scientific information. In this comparison, the seven days are not important; it is the description of what took place on each day, and in what order, that is relevant.
Genesis and Science: A Comparison
Genesis: (First day) — 15 billion to 4.5 billion years ago
“In the beginning God created Heaven and Earth.”
At some point in the history of time between, 9 and 15 billion years ago, the origins of the universe began. There was absolutely nothing but emptiness, when suddenly an infinitely hot and dense spot called the singularity appeared. From that spot there was an unimaginable gigantic explosion, called the Big Bang, and within less than a fraction of a second, the entire universe was formed. This was the start of everything that exists — matter, energy, time and every atom that was ever created. The sun and earth itself were estimated to have been formed about 4.5 billion years ago.
This is the accepted scientific explanation for the start of the universe.
But science can’t tell us everything. The great mystery is how that hot, dense spot (called the singularity), the first thing in the emptiness, the start of the universe, got there? Science tells that some unimaginable power must have put it there because from it came everything that exists in the universe. Some scientists just say “an unimaginable power” put it there, while others give a name to “that unimaginable power”: they call it God. The greatest living astrophysical scientist, Stephen Hawking, says, “Anyone who chooses to believe in a Universal Creator is standing on ground as solid as a scientist who denies Creative Purpose as First Cause. Because of the laws these same scientists have discovered, there is absolutely no way to tell what made it happen. Whatever you choose is an act of pure faith.”

According to NASA earth age.
Earth is our home planet. Scientists think Earth formed billions of years ago. Four planets in the solar system are bigger than Earth. Three planets are smaller. It is the third-closest planet to the sun. Only Mercury and Venus are closer.
Earth has been called the “Goldilocks planet.” In the story “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” a little girl named Goldilocks liked everything just right. Her porridge couldn’t be too hot or too cold. And her bed couldn’t be too hard or too soft. On Earth, everything is just right for living things. It’s warm, but not too warm. And it has water, but not too much water.
Read What is Earth.
There are many more evidences, which proves that The Earth is millions years old and it is supported by our scriptures as well.
