I was in Israel on a super religious trip (wasn't expecting it to be crazy religious) and this guy Gerald Schroeder talked to us about the big bang and religion. He was trying to say that basically the big bang happened and it was created by god. Everything that is said in the Old Testament happened in a time period, but just not in a 24 hour time period. This is because time is relative and after the big bang it "stretched" time.
This was the graphic he came up with and shows a bit more of what I am talking about.
He basically said if you look at fossils it will show you that the things in the "first day" were created during the time period show above for the "first day" and so forth on each day.
Not that I believe any of what he said, but it is a very interested way to look at the big bang as if it were supported by religion.
