Theism, Atheism, and Big Bang Cosmology

William Lane Craig

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides counter-arguments against Quentin Smith's atheistic interpretation of the Big Bang cosmology. It suggests that Smith's position is untenable because it lacks consistency, does not have a positive argument to commend it, and fails to escape the charge of metaphysical absurdity against it. It also explains that the Big Bang cosmological model does appear to constitute a powerful argument for the existence of a Creator of the universe.

Keywords:   Big Bang cosmology, Quentin Smith, atheistic interpretation, existence of God, theism
