Pope talks about the Big Bang Theory – level 1

05-11-2014 15:00

How did the world begin? Some people believe in the Big Bang Theory. Other people believe in God. These people say that God created the world.

These two theories are different, but the Pope says that you can believe in both. He thinks that God created the Big Bang, and the Big Bang created the world.

Difficult words: create (to make something), theory (theories try to explain things which are very complicated), both (two of the things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

How do you think the world began?
