Science is Beautifully Consistent with the Bible!

Join us for a journey through the last 13.7 billion years as we explore the creation of the universe and of the earth and of life. See how the description of creation in Genesis 1 is in harmony with the history of the universe, of the earth, and of life as described by science.

Then join us in asking how else could this happen unless the Creator of Genesis 1 and the Creator of the universe are one and the same?

What is Big Bible?

This website shows how science is beautifully consistent with the Bible! It shows how the description in Genesis 1 and descriptions from our current science are in harmony about the creation of our universe ~13.7 billion years ago and the transformation of the earth over the last ~4.5 billion years.

We dispel the common misconception that the Bible is scientifically inaccurate and full of myths and legends. In fact, the opposite is true. The key to understanding Genesis 1 is from the point of view in Genesis 1:2 that the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters that covered the earth. Then the six "days" of creation (which could also be faithfully translated as "periods of time") have excellent correspondence to the transformation of the earth for the past ~4.5 billion years as determined from the latest scientific findings. This correspondence is outlined in summary format on the Genesis 1 Timeline page. For a description of creation that was written well over 3000 years ago to match the scientific evidence that has only been discovered over the last several hundred years strongly suggests that the Creator of the Bible and the Creator of the universe are indeed one and the same!

The Days of Creation

Click on the up or down chevron in the above screens to view descriptions of the different days of creation. Click on the title in the above screens (for example, Day 1 of Creation) to find more details about the given day of creation.

Every story has a point of view. The key to harmonizing Genesis 1 with science is the point of view provided in Genesis 1:2.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (NIV)
From this point of view, Day 1 through Day 6 of creation are told from the Spirit's perspective hovering over the face of the earth.

Note that the Spirit of God is depicted as a bird of fire in the illustrations above.

Are You in One of These Groups?

Every one of the following groups has some solid truths guiding them. If you are in one of these groups, would you be willing to consider another aspect of the truth?


We would ask the following questions of anyone who is skeptical about the divine origins of the Bible in our scientific age.

How is it that a one-page summary that was written over 3000 years ago accurately corresponds with how scientists now describe (1) the beginning of the universe with the big bang and then (2) the stages of the evolution of the earth over its 4.5 billion year history? Who would you think the author of that summary might be? Is there any other origin story that even approaches congruence with the modern scientific origin story?

Young Earth Creationists

We would ask the following questions of those who believe that the earth and life were created about 10,000 years ago or less.

If the Bible can be shown to accurately portray the history of the earth as described by current science*, then do you see how this can be a great witness to many non-believers or followers of other religions around the world - that the author of the Bible is the great Creator of nature? Do you see how this could help fulfill the great commission? Do you see how this could help believers who may doubt that the Bible is the Word of God to have greater faith in the Bible as the Word of God?

Also, can you see how for some people, knowing that the LORD has prepared His creation for over 13 billion years in preparation for Jesus can lead to even deeper conviction, praise, and worship?

Christian Parents, Teachers, Caregivers

We would ask the following questions for Christian parents, teachers, and caregivers who want children to learn about science or technology and also want them to learn about the trustworthiness of the Bible.

Do you want the children in your care to learn science and technology in a way that's in agreement with what they are learning from the Bible? Do you think this would help them to be better prepared for having a strong faith while living well in society (being in the world but not of the world)?

Non Judeo-Christian Religions

We would ask those who are members of non Judeo-Christian religions - Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Taoists, and others - the following questions.

How well does your origin story correspond to what we now know from science about our origins? Would you be interested in finding out more about an origin story that was written thousands of years ago that claims to be from the Creator - an origin story that aligns with how science explains the beginning of the universe and the transformation of our earth and life over the last 4.5 billion years?

* For Young Earth Creationists, please note that valid translations of the original Hebrew Scriptures can be seen to be consistent with an accurate timeline of science. For example, in Genesis 1 the Hebrew "yom" that is usually translated as "day" in English can also be accurately translated as a long, yet definite period of time.
