Pope talks about the Big Bang Theory – level 2

Pope Francis said that the Big Bang Theory is compatible with the teaching on creationism. It is possible to believe in both.

The Pope said that the beginning of the world is not the work of chaos. It comes from something greater. According to the Pope, God was responsible for the Big Bang.

Difficult words: compatible (able to exist together without problems or conflict), creationism (belief that God created everything), chaos (randomness).

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