Science cannot now and never will be able to explain the origin of the universe.
By the laws of science, our universe should not exist because, "Where did it come from?" By the laws of science, something never comes from nothing, so where did the universe come from? What is its cause? And once you figure that out, then ask, "Where did THAT come from?" Using science, you will never arrive at the necessary "First Cause" to explain the origin of the universe.
Some people might say, "Well, it's always been there. There has never been a time when "nothing" existed. Something has always existed." This doesn't explain anything: it simply emphasizes the question, "How did that "something" get there?"
And the "Big Bang Theory", which is the best explanation science now has, still cannot answer the question, "What, then, caused the Big Bang?"
The reason science cannot explain the origin of the universe is that our laws of science are all based on the material universe, after it was created and settled into its present form. At the time of Creation, there was no material universe, therefore there were no laws of science in effect. Our understandings of time, distance, space, cause & effect, physics, etc., simply do not apply to the Creation of the universe.
How, then, did the universe get here? It got here not by "natural" means, but by "supernatural" means, means which science can never explain. Basically, the Creation story, as found in the book of Genesis in the Bible, explains it poetically as well as we need to know: God created it. These are the very first words in the Bible.
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1, in the Bible)"But the Bible talks about six days of Creation. We know it wasn't created in six days, but in billions of years. So the Bible story must be wrong," you may say.
"Maybe not," I reply. Genesis is a book of poetry, not a textbook. The word "day" is a figure of speech meaning a period of time, not necessarily a twenty-four-hour day as we know it. And even if "day" does mean a twenty-four-hour period, the normal laws of time as we know them DID NOT YET APPLY during the period of Creation. They came into effect only after Creation was done and settled into its present form. So maybe it was all done in six twenty-four-hour days! We have no way of knowing.
In any case, science cannot explain the Creation of the universe. And it never will be able to explain it. The explanation is found in the Bible: God created it.
Blessings to you, in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.
