Did the Big Bang trigger the formation of galaxies, stars, planets... and ultimately life?

"The field of evolutionary cosmology proposes that the universe is a result of a random explosion some 15-18 billion years ago... there are no examples that I have ever seen where an explosion produces an increase in order... Explosions cause spontaneous degeneration, not spontaneous generation."

"There is no mechanism known as yet that would allow the universe to begin in an arbitrary state and then evolve to its highly ordered state."
-Don Page

"I have little hesitation in saying that a sickly pall now hangs over the big bang theory."

-Sir Fredrick Hoyle
astronomer & mathematician

Our wonderfully complex, mathematically precise universe works like a clock. Explosions in jewelry shops don't create watches. Yet, our worlds are infinitely more complicated than a watch. As the creation of a watch means there was a watchmaker, so also does a precisely designed universe mean there was a designer.

If the universe did not result from a random explosion, what is the alternative?

"The classic big bang theory contradicts at least 2 basic laws of science:
  1. The law of Conservation of Angular Momentum: In a primeval explosion all products would move radially outward from its center. Straight-line radial motion cannot give rise to orbital motion: yet planets, stars, and galaxies, somehow all managed to rotate in vast orbits around different centers throughout the universe.

  2. The 2nd law of thermodynamics. Explosions create disorder, yet the big bang postulates the whole universe has increased in order with time."

The "big bang" apparently was not anything like an ordinary explosion. Evolutionary scientists who have studied the "big bang" say this about the event:

"The expansion rate was enormously high in the early universe. And the energy of the expansion had to be in perfect balance with the energy of the gravitational attraction. If the expansion rate were faster or slower by 1 part in 1060 the universe would be completely different... So that's a level of precision that's crazy... The universe is an amazingly fine tuned environment."

-Mark Davis
Instructor at U.C. Berkeley

"This is an incredibly highly ordered event. Extremely highly ordered. And it is just the opposite of a chaotic event. [Where did it get its initial order?] ... that's part of the primal mystery. I just regard this as a glaring mystery that we have to face and we [scientists] don't have an answer for it."
