Day 25: more on the Big Bang

I was thinking more about God's action at the creation of time, and how it mirrors man's procreative process. I thought particularly about what precedes the eventual climax when our sexuality is rightly ordered and consecrated.

In rightly ordered sexuality, we come together covenantially in love. Throughout the act of lovemaking, there is an intensification of that love, and of passion, pleasure, and joy, which eventually culminates in a great unleashing of force.

Given that we are made in His image and likeness, I imagine such a buildup within Him as He prepared to create all of creation. I imagine His love and passion and pleasure and joy reaching such a fever pitch that it exploded, creating matter and energy and light and time and space.

And eventually, making man.

All of this taking place within a covenant of love.

No wonder the evil one works so hard at corrupting sexuality. It is the very power of God.

I must say, I never heard this theory before...it is thought provoking...the creation of man and woman as the orgasmic climax of creation ...wow

St. Augustine had some great things to say about creation. See Etienne Gilson, Tne Christian Philosophy of St. Augustine. Part Three. God created everything simultaneously in rational seeds (rationes seminales), each of whics comes into being in its time. I don't think the big bang would surprise St. Augustine either.
