To be more specific the universe was created by the big bang, using the planetesimal theory you can explain how a planet was created so all the answers to the question were not specific enough! I study astrophysics so I know what I'm talking about! In 4 billion years due to expansion our galaxy, the milky way galaxy, will collide with the andromeda galaxy, so there is nothing perfect about that! our universe is so vast you all need to realize we are all insignificant in comparison. This universe ( the big bang could have created more than one) was not created for us! Just deal with it, you are not special! Religion is the opium for the ignorant!

I am a high school science teacher. And NOT religious at all. But science can't prove that there is NO God. But in a recent US News poll of 100 scientists belief in creation, 64% of scientists stated that it is MORE scientifically theoretical that the earth was created. As one scientist stated: ... "because everything on the earth is a perfect balance of creation. And no matter how many times you slam together clumps of metal at high speeds, it won't produce a perfectly manufactured Ferrari. No matter how many times you try, with different speeds & temperatures, it will NEVER happen, not with 100 billion attempts. So the chance of earth, and living beings just EVOLVING from a crash-bang, is unscientific in itself."

@wolfguy423 you should care because if he is NOT at a religious school he's being taught wrong. You attribute the creation of the earth to God then you close the door to that child's understanding of the remainder of science (not you personally, obviously). To go briefly Whitney, the children are our future. We are SCREWED if this generation are all taught the stuff that was being disproved back in the Renaissance. Congrats God-nut Teacher - you've just set education back 400 years. When the next meteorite hits (or whatever earth shattering catastrophe is destined to wipe out 90% of life on the planet) we won't have advanced our scientific understanding far enough to a) avert it or b) evacuate the planet and survive it that way.

OK, OK, I've taken it to ridiculous extremes, but the point still stands that a lot of damage to the entire education system can be done by this kind of cr@p

Slartibartfast had a big hand in earth's creation. Just as legitimate an answer as the other ones.

Any chance this is a test from a christian private school? Do they bother to teach the scientific theories on how things were created?

adamslily. Because C IS the correct answer. The Earth is 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old.

And you misread the answer, it clearly states 3.7 million, not billion on the answer, either way, the correct answer is still 4.6 billion.

Science is real. God is not. Get used to it. It's not going to change.

who cares. maybe he was in a religious school? maybe his teacher is a god nut? really, its all just a point of view. personally i believe in the science of evolution. It matters not what made us but how we adapt to our environment.

How can something be more correct than something else. Isn't that like saying something is more perfect?

"Creationists believe the world is a few thousand years old. Intelligent Design is the theory that all the science is correct, but all that swirly cosmos stuff actually happened because god made it so. "

That's not true, actually. Intelligent design is just a fancy name for creationism. Creationists describe intelligent design in exactly the same way as creationism (except maybe replacing "God" with "intelligent designer"). Even in creationist "textbooks" that are newer editions, they just replace "creationism" with "intelligent design" and pretend it's something different from before.

However, not all creationism(/intelligent design) is young earth creationism, so whatever this is from probably just doesn't teach young earth creationism.

Can you prove the Big Bang was or was not created by God?

But that isn't the question. Can you prove that God was or was not created by something else?

"it was on reddit about a week ago"
Who gives a sh*t?. It could've been on eatliver, 9gag or at least a dozen other sites a week before that. So...what's your point?

a lot of those test questions have theoretical answers so why teach it as fact?

the earth wasn't created by the big bang, only the lighter elements. the earth was created when a dying star went supernova.
