could the big bang really put such order in the universe

I have been thinking and what seem to come to mind for me is that we were taught or told that the big bang is the logical reason as to how life started, but if that is true how is it that we have such a timemical order as the sun rising and setting and the timemical order of winter summer and fall not even thinking about the timemical changes such as rain, snow, hail ect. ect. how could this be unless we have a creator that created these timemical events that we see and experience, and to prove my point can anyone tell me the name of the man that pulls the sun up and down or show me or explain to me the big bang theory to the degree that i understand that from mass energy being pull in by gravity and from the heat of this energy came an explosion that cause the evolution of life and the order of its universe and the things there of.

What excellent points everyone makes. The most compelling being that the universe runs with perfect precision. The sunrise/sunset; the tides; the rotation of the planets in the universe; The symbiotic relationship of living beings. This precision would seem to imply creation by a highly evolved being. That being said, I think the idea of the previous poster who states, "The big bang once it started, was itself following the order or laws of the nature," is incredibly astute.

The perfect order of the universe simply defies the idea of some kind of random accident. Suppose a big bang did create life in the universe. It leads back to the same question . . . where did the elements at play in the bang originate? The idea that the universe has always existed is intriguing. The human mind just can't wrap itself around the concept of infinity. We only really understand the ideas of beginning and ending.

It certainly doesn’t seem possible that an explosion on the scale of the Big Bang could culminate in the random creation of the ordered universe we now inhabit. The Presbyterian in me says that God created the universe and set it in motion like the deists’ Clockmaker. The pragmatist in me says that the universe has probably always existed. The fact that time moves forward does not, in my mind, dictate that it must have had a beginning point, nor will it have an ending point.

There is a line of logic that suggests that there is a "fudge factor" within the explanation of the strictly causal view of "the big bang."  Some argue that an initial causation automatically suggests that the big bang could not have been entirely self sustaining.  However, there are equal number who can profess that the big bang is a self sufficient theory that needs no additional causation.  I think that the answer to this can be made on the basis of what one feels is a more compelling argument.

The word accident implies something that is unplanned and happens by chance. It also implies some accompanying damage or undesirable occurrences. By this definition Big Bang is not an accident at all. Most certainly we cannot say that caused any damage. It actually created the universe. Also we do not know what caused it. We are in no position to qualify it as something either planned or planned. To be qualified as such we will need some one to plan. This 'someone' has remained elusive for the scientists.

Also we have no basis to say that the big bang put such order into the world. The big bang once it started, was itself following the order or laws of the nature. Big bang is also a follower of the order in the nature - not a creator of this order.

I do not know all the details of the big bang, but one thing is very clear - scientists believe that big bang resulted in creation of this whole universe out of nothing, just as creationist believe that God created this universe out of nothing.
