The Big Bang was an act of God, with divine will bringing the universe into being, Pope Benedict XVI told a gathering of Catholics at the Vatican.

"The universe is not the result of chance, as some would want to make us believe," Benedict said Thursday, according to Reuters.

"Contemplating it [the universe], we are invited to read something profound into it: the wisdom of the creator, the inexhaustible creativity of God," Benedict told some 10,000 people gathered to celebrate the feast of the Epiphany.

Benedict has worked to integrate modern scientific theories into religious teaching, saying that God is responsible for evolution and that the Bible story of the world's creation in six days is an allegory.

Benedict rarely delves into scientific concepts such as the Big Bang, which scientists believed created the universe more than 13 billion years ago.

Benedict argued that science alone cannot explain the nature of the universe. Scientific theories can be "mind limiting. They do not explain the ultimate reality," the pope said, according to The Daily Mirror.

Benedict has argued against the idea that scientific theories such as evolution are evidence for atheism.

I am so delighted to hear that the Pope is a fan of the DC... and has prescribed to the ideology and debates contained in the pages of debate within science and religion... many -on both sides -have contributed to.
