God/creation vs. big bang/evolution = no conflict!?!?!

The following is not written by a scientist, but a philosopher. Many of the conclusions herein are not researched, as human technology has not reached a sufficient level to prove or disprove most of these ideas. This is a piecing together of various puzzle pieces from the scientific and religious worlds with, admittedly, a good deal of assumption on the part of the writer when it came to connecting things and filling in the blanks.
The first thing that the reader must solidify in their mind in order to grasp the concepts addressed here is that there is no such thing as “matter”. The entire “Physical Universe” as you have perceived it through your 5 acknowledged senses contains absolutely NO matter. This does not mean that everything is an illusion. On the contrary- the atomic groupings we refer to as “Matter” are very real and firmly bound by many laws of physics. Not necessarily the limited and often incorrect “laws” that humans teach. Just recently, Albert Einstein’s accepted “law” that the speed of light was a universal constant and that nothing can travel faster than light, which had been believed by the scientific community for about 70 years was disproven on two counts- particles faster than light have been found and inconsistencies in the speed of light have been found. As our technology increases, so will our understanding of the true laws of the universe. The span of intelligent human existence in the Universal time scale is so brief, though, that it would be absolutely arrogantly foolish to ever claim to understand all of the laws governing our perceived “matter” here, let alone those governing celestial bodies millions of light years awa

Both of them are uncertainties

It looks like you didn't get to finish your idea, but based on your question I think I have the answer you're looking for:

There is no conflict between Creation/the Genesis story and evolution/big bang.

The Bible says that God spoke and then BANG! something big happened. The popular scientific explanation is that nothing existed and was doing nothing and then nothing happened and then BANG! something big happened. In fact, the man who developed the modern big bang theory was a Catholic priest and at the time he was criticized for inventing a bogus theory just so he could shoehorn his faith into his research. His name is Monsignor Georges Lemaitre: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Lema%C3%AEtre.

As for creation vs evolution, most Christians are not insane and do not deny evolution. However, God absolutely had an intimate role in the creation of the first humans. Life was probably evolving before that, life definitely continues to evolve afterwards, but evolution could not put a soul into the first humans. A soul is not a genetic aberration. No monkey (or any life on it's own) could ever evolve a soul. So when religious fanatics throw around ideas like intelligent design, there is a good chance he or she is talking about the exact moment when God either put a soul into a monkey to make the first man, or he created something entirely new to house a soul. I like to think it was the latter, but it does not matter at all how it happened. The only thing that matters now is that it happened.

What about God created the Big Bang, Physics, and Science? WHOA

no conflict

Big bang and evolution were events guided by God?

"The span of intelligent human existence in the Universal time scale is so brief, though, that it would be absolutely arrogantly foolish to ever claim to understand all of the laws governing our perceived “matter” here"

I disagree, I think the brevity of human existence compared to the age of the Universe is not relevant to our ability to understand it.
If humanity stands for a few centuries more, they could very well be understood, and "the span of intelligent human existence" would still have been insignifiant.

No such thing as smart designers. Maybe.

No conflict. In the beginning, God created. HOW God created is a non-issue.

In the beginning, God created the universe through his butt hole.
