Hijacking Science For God
A Jesuit priest is hijacking astrophysics to prove the existence of a God who, despite being omnipotent and the master of world without end, amen, apparently needs people to poke their noses into wildly unsuitable fields and act as His PR. Never mind how using the Big Bang to prove Catholicism is like using triple-chocolate-shakes as a diet.
Father Robert J. Spitzer, PhD, outlines a case which is very hard to argue with, but not for the reasons you'd like. He describes modern big bang theories, shows that they all demand a singularity point, and obviously such singularity points require the existence of a Creator. Well done if you spotted the break in the chain of reasoning there - it's on par with saying "two plus two is four, four plus four is eight, so therefore eight is a magical number of mystical power." It's difficult to argue with the logic because the (extremely) arguable step has no logic at all.
