The Big Bang theory is "bad science" because it contradicts the story of the creation of the world found in Genesis, according to World Net Daily contributor David Rives.

"If you look at the science behind astronomy -- the good science -- it backs up what the Bible says, that in six days God created everything," he said on an episode of Creation Today that was uploaded to YouTube on Friday.

"Now, today we have a lot of atheistic scientists who are telling us, 'You can't believe the Bible,' that everything is the result of an explosion 14 billion years ago, and I believe that is bad science," Rives continued. "It doesn't line up with the Bible, and it has a lot of problems that those scientists don't want to tell you. You can study astronomy no problem at all, as long as you stick to the facts of astronomy. The scientific, empirical data that can be seen and demonstrated."

Creation Today host Eric Hovind asked how it was possible to simultaneously believe modern astronomy and believe the Earth was only about 6,000 years old.

"I believe in six literal days God created everything, that on day four he created the stars, that's what the Bible says, and the information that we are being told that a lot of universities are teaching us about astronomy is nothing but bad science," Rives replied.

The creationist astronomer claimed there were a number of unanswered questions about the Big Bang theory. Christians, on the other hand, had no unanswered questions regarding the creation of the universe because all the answers were provided by the Bible, Rives said.
