Professor of physics Michael Tabachnick will speak about the Big Bang Theory and Genesis March 10.

Mar 02, 2010

A professor of physics at Delaware Valley College who believes the Big Bang Theory is explained by Genesis will lecture on the subject March 10.

In his speech, which is free and open to the public, Michael Tabachnick will use deep space photos from the Hubble telescope to argue that "Genesis is nothing more than a description of the Big Bang in layman's terms - that there is actually no difference between the two."

The lecture is at 8 p.m. on the DelVal campus in the Moumgis Auditorium of the Student Center.

Tabachnick, who did his undergraduate work in physics at Temple University and his graduate work at Columbia and Rutgers, said that when you compare the space photos to biblical verse, the same vistas are being described.

The Big Bang Theory purports that the universe began from a single point of extremely dense matter over 13 billion years ago and has been expanding outward ever since.
