Did God create the Earth, or was it an Astrological occurance of colliding planets and dwarfing Sun's?

For many years, the question has been "Who", "What" "How" the planet Earth became to be what it was today - A humongous star that hangs in the universe with an oxygen, hydrogen and carbon atmosphere. But how did it get here really? Who put it here?
Answers to this question:
Texts written far back have concluded (in their own opinion) that God created the Earth, while others claim that "The Big Bang" brought the Earth to its final resting place to orbit around the Sun in our vast Solar System.
This is not a smear question, its just a general History question that requires the input of all those who answer. Its a Science Project and as such, requires nothing more than a simple answer. Thank you.
I tend to go with the Big Bang theory for the origin of the universe. It dispersed a great deal of matter. All matter exhibits gravity. Gravity tends to pull matter together. To my way of thinking about it, earth is an accretion of matter brought about by gravity. A star is a very huge accretion that "holds" so much gravity that the pressure caused a fundamental change in the matter and fusion began.
I'm not an astrophysicist and so I may have gotten a lot of the previous wrong, but that is how I think of it.
But ... what caused the Big Bang? Some godlike entity?
Thank you Diane, your answer was absolutely mind-blowing and great to read. I believe most of what you said is correct, though I, too, am not an Astrophysicist.
The Big Bang Theory is, believe it or not the only other singular argument that rages through the many religious orders today, while many people believe that Time Travel brought man to Earth before time began and that the universe has been forever built up of stars and planets.
Thank you for your answer.
We are not ordained, by God, to live here on Earth.
Millions of other "Earths" exist with creatures far superior to us.
Spiritually, Earth is but a 'school', where our souls come repeatedly, to reap an education.
You're right, we are definitely not ordained by God to live on Earth, and yes, there are (in theory - an unknown fact until some Earth Technological device picks one up and beams the pictures back) most probably millions of planets out there that are just like Earth.
Spiritually, I believe that there is more than one God who has the job of watching over this planet, who watch over their children and who witness the whole mess we are putting ourselves in first hand. It is a school, however, as everyday mankind learns many new things about itself, about its neighbour, its brother...the list is endless.
Good answer Paul and thank you.
I like to keep it simple so a little child can understand. Take the flower for instance. Man plants the seed in the ground, but who put the flowers on the stems?
Thank you Marcia for your simple answer, to which I will take a stab in the dark and say that the Sunshine and Rain helps make the leaves, buds and flowers that grow from the intricate compounds that make up the roots. I could be wrong.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
You are welcome. I believe there is a super natural being who designed and created everything and everyone on this planet. One who is continously creating even right now. I ask myself questions like, who or what makes the baby grow in the womb of it's mother? How is the womb and opening stretched to accompany the deliverance of the baby at the right time? Or the caterpillar that turns into a butterfly? It's all a mystery to me. If we human beings knew how everything was created or made, we would find a way to mess it up, or mis-use it. Just look at the world and what a mess we made of the original things. The skies, oceans, rivers and lands are crying out for us to stop polluting them. Is anyone really listening? We tell ourselves we need to live in pollution to survive. How very sad for the next generations.

I don't believe a Big Bang would create the universe, so balanced, the sun distanced perfectly for us to be warm, not to burn, nor be cold, the moon, all the different stars that keep the universe stable as it is, the earth, the air, and in the end humans, the flawless construction in of the human body, feelings, love, everything else. I believe a Big Bang made it all, but who made the Big Bang? God or however we may call it, thats it from me now :)
Thank you, HyunSoung for your Comment.
I read this with great interest and found it philosophical - if this does not offend you - to the point of a very much liked reply. That is why I can only give your answer a High 5 with pleasure.
Thank you again for your reply.
Yes, i respect your decision :) You have all the rights to have done as you have done :), hope one day this philosophical thing will be scientific so that people believe :) Thanks for the Hi 5
Total Answers: 5, Total Page Views: 788.Day one: God, through divine intelligence, did create the earth; the big bang was his speaking the earth into existence. The natural laws were also a part of it; such as gravity, positive-negative, atoms. Then God created light. Day=light. Darkness=night.
Day Two: Water covered the earth, and then God separated it to show the sky. Then there was evening and morning.
Day Three: Separated the waters with land. Vegetation, seeds, sowing and reaping.
Day Four: The Sun and the Moon.
Day Five: God created: Fish in Ocean, and Birds in the Sky. God tells them multiply.
Day Six: Wild animals, livestock, ground crawlers, and then he created Man, then Woman. He told them multiply, and he made them to rule over all of animals. All of plants for food.
Day Seven: God rested.
Thank you Elle for your Comment.
Though it reads like something straight from the Bible, I'm sure that the effort in writing it is that which you believe to be the beginnings of the Earth.
A simple answer as "God created the Earth" would have been OK.
Thanks again for the Comment.
