No need. We have an overwhelming amount of evidence for the Big Bang. Nearly every prediction that was made has been confirmed.

The only piece of the puzzle missing is what caused it, however we don't need that piece to know that it happened. So the question here is "did god cause the big bang?" and unfortunately, no telescope is going to answer that question.
