I believe the Catholic Church does not have a stance on the big bang or other such events, and views these as acceptable believes but not mandatory. So a Catholic could believe, or not believe, in the big bang and not be contradicting his/her church. However, some of the more fundamentalist, Protestant denominations, do have problems with this as they believe in a literal interpretation of the bible. In conclusion, modern day Catholics and probably most Protestants feel it is acceptable to believe that Genesis is somehow not literal. Yet another example of the religious community living in the tail of the comet.
