The Big Bang
(image by Rhys Taylor, Cardiff University.)
In fact, it was a Roman Catholic priest, Fr. Georges Lemaitre, who first proposed the Big Bang theory in 1927, on the basis of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, according to the American Natural History Museum in New York. The current Pope wrote about it in a 1995 book, and John Paul II called science a 'highway to wonder' way back in 1979. Indeed, next on the docket is an April workshop on evolution. 'Is Man the culmination of evolution? Is he an incidental result of randomness?' reads an online description of the April meeting. 'Nine billion years went by between the Big Bang and the formation of a primitive lifeless ocean on planet Earth, then another 4 billion years passed by between this primitive ocean and Man, with 100 billion brain cells and the ability to question his role in the History of the Universe and of Life and to reconstruct his own history.'
