"Also, it still makes very good sense for the word "GOD" to have been the "Big Bang".

You could apply that kind of logic to any discovery by science. You could call the conglomeration of amino acids in the primordial soup to form life God making life. You could call the formation of the earth from collecting stellar dust particles God creating the earth. You could theoretically take any fact and vaguely apply it to God despite the fact that God is not required, that the universe does just fine without him.

"According to the bible, GOD made everything right? According to scientists, the "big Bang" made everything right?"

Unless the universe existed forever, something HAD to "make everything." Making paralellisms between faith and reason does not prove God's existence. That would be pseudoscience.

"Even scientist claim that energy cannot be destroyed only changes form, so this also proves life after death."

I've heard that argument before, and it holds about as much water as a sieve. If you light a match, the energy that was once in that match will never recolect to form a match again. The potential energy in the head would be flying out into space at the speed of light, and could never be recollected again. Where is the life after death for a match? When we die, and our brains decompose, the energy that once was in them will never regroup. The energy still exists, sure, in the bellies of maggots and slugs. Never again will it resemble anything like a human brain.

Again: the universe runs itself. Unless God created the Cosmos and then decided to sit on his hands for the rest of eternity, I see no room for him.
