It doesn't make sense to me. Atoms coming together along with dust particles in the space of nothingness decided to evolve into an Earth, with so many uncountable species of animals, and humans with inexplicable brains, not to mention all the beauties in nature...how does an evolutionist explain this? What about the Multi-Universe theory, which is also unprovable? How does the theory of Evolution get anywhere without an explanation of the Beginning?

Evolution has nothing to do with the big bang, they are totally separate.

Evolution is the theory that explains the diversity of life.

The big bang is the theory that explains the expanding universe and how the universe as we know it started.

The two have nothing to do with one another.

So then, if you believe in the Big Bang, you also don't have to be an Evolutionist?

All I want to know here is what the Big Bang is and how it happened. I don't see how the two can't be in the same category, Evolution and the Big Bang. And if you don't believe in evolution, WHY do you believe in the Big Bang? Why do you believe in the Big Bang if there is a much better explanation of the Universe and Earth in Creationism?

Doppler Effect

The doppler effect is something you will be fimiliar with even if you don't know it by name. An easy explination of the dopler effect is that waves bunch up as the object they are comming from approaches and space out as an object moves away. This is why cars sound like this [1] as they pass you.

When we look into the universe we all the frequencies spaced out and we can conclude that everything is traveling away from everything else [2] and when you extrapolate back you find that there may have been a point where everything was on the top of everything else in a tiny space and the prediction was made that cosmic background radiation would be found and confirm it.

Cosmic Background Radiation

Cosmic background radiation with readings that confirmed the big bang theory have since been found [3], more discoveries confirming the big bang have also been found including litterally pictures of the aftermath (because the speed of light is finite we can look back in time by looking into space.

You know what a snowball is, right? you can take tiny snowflakes and with enough of them packed together, you get a snowball.
Space is full of dust. When enough dust gets packed together into a ball it becomes a planet (or a star).
Gravity (the thing that holds you to the ground) pulls dust together into giant balls.

Yes, there are so many uncountable species of animals, and humans with inexplicable brains, not to mention all the beauties in nature...How does an evolutionist explain this?
Well, it's called "natural selection"

Evolution has nothing to do with the big bang.
Evolution has something to do with biology.
The big bang has something to do with astrophysics.
Evolutionists don't explain the big bang, astrophysicists do.
