In this article, physicist Ron Hellings takes a look at some of the teachings of Joseph Smith to try to understand these in light of modern cosmology, the study of the foundations of matter, time, and energy throughout the universe. He finds reasonable ways to harmonize these perspectives, and concludes that naïve big bang challenges to the doctrines of the Restoration are out of date.
