/steady state theory avoids a creation date:
. notice that a steady state theory avoids a creation date
whereas the bible's genesis story taken literally,
puts the creation date just a few thousand years ago,
so then big bang may be physicists' attempts at
remaining consistent with the bible .

" The prevalent theory of cosmic origins-- that is not true:
prior to the Big Bang theory
was the “Steady State,” which argued that
the universe has always existed,
without a beginning that necessitated a cause."
the steady state has no beginning in time,
but the universe as a metaphysical object
(the infinite collection of all its state changes)
still requires a creation source .
