The Muslims disagree with the BigBang, but then again we all should

Before you comment about the headline let me explain myself. You see the biggest misconception about the Big Bang is that it well was a Big explosion. As is stated in the wikipedia article about the  Big Bang  it says that
"though simple atomic nuclei formed within the first three minutes after the Big Bang, thousands of years passed before the first electrically neutral atoms formed."
So this massive explosion was not what people think about when they think Big Bang. The term was actually coined by Fred Hoyle by accident, and he was not happy that the name stuck as he thought it was an absurd name for the theory. This happened in a BBC interview when he said
"These theories were based on the hypothesis that all the matter in the universe was created in one big bang at a particular time in the remote past."
So the Big Bang is something that we should disagree with....but in name only as it makes a lot of people think of this massive very fast explosion and expansion which is not entirely correct.  After all the planets and stars only came much later after the initial big bang. Importantly, the big bang does not explain anything about the origin of the singularity etc. it only is about the expansion of the universe.

This is why I am amused at the stories offered at Scienceislam regarding the big bang. These fools honestly think that the big bang never happened and rather that everything was just put in place by Allah. The reasons behind this are given in some amusing analogies for the big bang of which I give my most interesting one here.
A gas leak in a pharmacy warehouse causes a terrific explosion. All the different chemicals and substances just smash into each other in exactly the correct amounts to produce a miracle drug which cures everything form cancer to heart and liver disease, old age and warts?...
Wait... there's more to this one:
It is all in one formula, packaged in the bottles with labels and ready to sell with no mess left on the floor?...

Reading this analogy for the big bang I am sure you now understand why Muslims reject the big bang. Its simple really, they do not understand the science behind it and have no inclination to realise that they are misinterpreting words. BTW if this sounds different to another post I have discussed from this same site...... it is. I cant help it that religion has no consistency when it comes to not understanding science.

I leave you with this wonderful quote form the website, just in case you are in doubt about the authenticity of Islam and science.
Islam tells us Allah is both The Creator & The Evolver, of all that exits. We know Allah did not evolve us from monkeys, and we know all things are from Allah.
