I have finished reading the book Angels and Demons, and I must say, it was great. However, I researched into the statements made in the book. One statement especially attracted my attention.
It was a statement claiming that the Catholic Church had devised the Big Bang Theory (although it wasn’t called that at the time of its construction). I looked up the person “Georges Lemaitre” on an online encyclopedia, and it does in fact say that he devised the theory.
So my question is this: did the Catholic Church back up the theory, and do they still do?
