No Beginning?

I love it when scientists theorize about the beginning of the universe. They weren't there. How could they know?

The latest theory comes from Princeton University physicist Paul Steinhardt. He suggests there may be no beginning, or end, of time and that the "big bang" theory may be "only a transition or a stage of evolution from a pre-existing phase to the present expanding phase. Time does not have to have a beginning."

Well, he may be closer to the truth than he thinks. When Genesis 1:1 says "In the beginning," it's not talking about God's beginning, because he always is. It's talking about the beginning of God creating the universe as we know it. And we know so little about it because we didn't make it and many (though not all) scientists refuse to believe the Bible as true.

Science will never figure out what God did because they are not God, as much as some of them like to think so. I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
