It's important that people understand that to discard the Big Bang Theory in favor of a creation theory requires more than just saying "Well, science has been wrong before. Maybe there's another theory that uses God."

Alternative theories should explain at least as well, if not better, the available data (the items in Alexander's list). To be a "powerful" theory it should, in addition, predict suprising results in experiments not performed previously.

Until someone comes up with a reasonable alternative, we should treat the Big Bang as if it WAS the way things happened.
