For millennia people have stood in awe of Stonehenge and wondered about its origin. Today most people assume that it was made by ancient humans, but is that true? Here’s an alternative idea that I call The Theory of Bang-Solution.
Hundreds of billions of years ago a huge meteor entered earth’s atmosphere. Intense heat began to strengthen parts of it and to weaken other parts of it. It slammed into the ground on Salisbury Plain near what is now Wiltshire, England.
The impact of the crash created many cracks and crevices between the hardened parts of the meteor and the weaker parts. (The impact was so powerful that it separated Britain from Europe creating the first Brexit and possibly wiped out the dinosaurs.)
As hundreds of billions of years went by, erosion did its work. Earthquakes, floods, wind, and rain lifted the meteor to the surface and then eroded its weaker parts, erasing all signs of the crater and leaving us modern day Stonehenge.
As the theory of evolution proclaims: Time and chance and billions of years can do amazing things. Let’s add Stonehenge to the list of time and chance marvels. (If time and chance couldn’t create Stonehenge, how could they create the all the complexities found on earth?)
