There was an blog on BioLogos which gave me a different point of view on LeMaitre's role in the origin of the Big Bang. When Einstein developed his theory he realized that it meant that the universe was expanded, which he believed to be untrue (for philosophical reasons) Therefore he included a corrective to the theory.
LeMaitre say that the "corrective was false and disputed Einstein on this. To his credit Einstein befriended LeMaitre and allowed himself to be convinced, and confessed that this was a big mistake.
Of course Hoyle refused to accept somethi9ng that went against his atheistic ideology.
Le Maitre wanted to make clear that he took the position that the universe had a beginning as a result of the evidence available, which was good and true. I do not see anything negative in pointing out that this fact is in harmony with our faith.
Our faith is not based on science, but if we believe that God created the universe through His Word, the Logos, Jesus Christ, then science is ultimately in harmony with Christianity. God is not God of the gaps that we cannot understand, but God of the facts that humans can understand because we are created in the Image of God.
