Well, I've heard that the science community did not jump right on to the big bang band wagon(try saying that 3 times fast,seriously, do it) because the main proponent behind it's beginnings was a catholic priest and the science community felt like excepting the theory would almost imply they were basing their exceptance of it on their preconcieved notions on God. That sentence feels garbled, so I'll restate. They(the science community) was slow to except the big bang originally because of the theory's overt implications of there being a God. They only would except it as it became-due to mounting scientific evidence- more and more difficult to reject. So I think many have felt that the theory implys an original alchemist(God).
