After releasing the Big Ban is real, the Vatican invited scientists, astrophysicists and cosmologists in order to understand the theory.
Scientists from all over the world will come to the Vatican Observatory, to talk about science’ topics such as black holes and gravitational waves.
The Vatican Observatory was founded by Pope Leo XIII in 1891 to correct the idea that the Roman Catholic Church was aggressive to science
The conference will last for a week and it start for the church to appreciate the scientific work and that some theories are real; that science doesn’t necessary have to oppose religion.
Admitting The Big Bang Theory Is Real
In 2014, Pope Francis stated that God is not “a magician with a magic wand” admitting that big bang theory and the evolution theory are both real.
The church will honors Monsignor George Lemaitre. In 1927 and after Lemaitre solved some of Einstein’s equation about theories of general relativity, Lemaitre was the first person explaining that the disappearing of distant galaxies was the consequence of the universe’s expansion. This theory was the named the “primeval atom theory and now known as the Big Bang theory.
“He understood that looking backward in time, the universe should have been originally in a state of high energy density, compressed to a point like an original atom from which everything started,” The Vatican Observatory stated.
Best Of Both
Guy Consolmagno, director of the Vatican Observatory, thinks that the research of Lemaitre demonstrates that one can believe in God and the big bang theory.
“Lemaitre himself was very careful to remind people — including Pope Pius XII — that the creative act of God is not something that happened 13.8 billion years ago. It’s something that happens continually,” Consolmagno elaborated on Monday.
