Has The Universe Always Existed?

It is written:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1).

Many atheists teach that the universe has always existed, and that it had no beginning.

What do the facts of science show us?

“Robert Jastrow, founder and former director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, has summarized the evidence in his book God and the Astronomers, saying, “Now three lines of evidence-the motions of the galaxies, the laws of thermodynamics, and the life story of the stars-pointed to one conclusion: all indicated that the Universe had a beginning.” (Norman Geisler & Ronald Brooks, When Skeptics Ask: A Handbook On Christian Evidences, 220 (Kindle Edition); Grand Rapids, Michigan; Baker Books)

Pretty simple math here friends. Only three possibilities: either the universe has always existed, or the universe created itself out of nothingness, or it was created by the eternal Creator (if He wasn’t eternal, He would just be part of the universe that needs an ultimate explanation). The first two possible explanations of the origin of the universe are obviously ridiculous, which leaves the third: there is an eternal God.

Why not accept this one true God and His Word?
