Vatican celebrates Big Bang. Pope Francis invites scientists to the Vatican

The Vatican is celebrating the Big Bang theory. Pope Francis invites scientists to the Vatican after Catholic Church realises the Big Bang is real. That’s not as out of this world as it sounds. The Vatican Observatory has invited some of the world’s leading scientists and cosmologists to talk black holes and gravitational waves. 

The Vatican Observatory has invited leading scientists and cosmologists to talk black holes, gravitational waves and space-time singularities as it honours the late Jesuit cosmologist considered one of the fathers of the idea that the universe began with a gigantic explosion.

The conference comes amid an increasing effort to tie religion and science together. The Vatican has invited the world’s leading scientists and cosmologists to try and understand the Big Bang.

Astrophysicists and other experts will attend the Vatican Observatory to discuss black holes, gravitational waves and space-time singularities as it honors the late Jesuit cosmologist considered one of the fathers of the idea that the universe began with a gigantic explosion.

The conference – which runs through the week – is part of an increasing admission by the church that scientific theories were real and not necessarily in contradiction with theological doctrine.

In 1927, Lemaitre was the first to explain that the receding of distant galaxies was the result of the expansion of the universe, a result he obtained by solving equations of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

Lemaitre’s theory was known as the „primeval atom,” but it is more commonly known today as the big-bang theory.
