“Science vs. Religion: Mayim Bialik and the OTHER Big Bang Theory” Ep. 4, Season 2

RAMBAM, also known as Maimonides, stated in the 12th century that the creation account must not be taken literally in all its parts. This leaves room for concepts like The Big Bang Theory and even evolution to work within the Torah’s description of the seven days of creation.

And every Jew should know that believing in science is not a reason to not believe in Torah.
