@NotThatGuy The "origin" of what came to be known as the big bang theory was a Catholic priest Georges Lemaître. The theory received its name from Fred Hoyle who vehemently opposed it saying, "The reason why scientists like the "big bang" is because they are overshadowed by the Book of Genesis. It is deep within the psyche of most scientists to believe in the first page of Genesis".
IOW, what science would ultimately prove when the the steady state condition was rejected was the accuracy of Genesis 1...not my words, but the words of the leading scientist who opposed the big bang.
So the "strawman" is the written word explaining the natural world. No different than Euclid, Pythagoras, or any other ancient "scientist." Their ideas are accepted because the natural world has evidence which agrees with what they wrote...no different from Moses.
With each new discovery, science rids itself of wrong theories and with each step brings object proof that a statement written over 3,000 years accurately describes the process by which the natural world came into existence.
Here is another tidbit from Fred Hoyle, Would you not say to yourself, "Some super-calculating intellect must have designed the properties of the carbon atom, otherwise the chance of my finding such an atom through the blind forces of nature would be utterly minuscule...
... A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a superintellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question" says Fred Hoyle, the "father" of "intelligent design."
BTW the atomic structure of the carbon atom is essential to forming organic compounds. It is one of only 2 elements on which organic compounds can be formed. The atomic number is 12 and it is made up of 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons...12 and 6-6-6. So not only has someone "monkeyed" with physics, they chose numbers which are Biblically significant which, obviously, the human writers of the Bible were unaware of. Modern science can be a wonderful thing.

7 full comments further repeating your argument and further strawmanning, in response to a 6-word comment pointing out that you're repeating your argument and strawmanning. Very curious strategy indeed. Quite concerning that someone can be so completely oblivious to or in denial of reality itself, but it could also make for an interesting case study.

Even more curious to have this happen each time after it's been pointed out, no less than 4 times.
