Or do they? A poll was taken of under 25s asking them who created the universe and 93.9% said not God, and 6% said don’t know or other. So the Humanist society in Iceland are claiming that Icelanders under 25 don’t believe the universe was created by God.
However, and this is a big however, there has been criticism of the way the question was worded: ‘how do you think the universe came to be?’ and the answers were ‘the universe came to be in the big bang’ and ‘God created the universe’ or ‘Don’t know’ and ‘other’…”. This meant there was no space for someone to believe that God created the Big Bang.
The Independent has a really interesting article which explains how a Catholic priest and physicist was the person who came up with the Big Bang theory and how the current Catholic Pope Francis says that Big Bang and evolution theories are correct.
