The Bible teaches the existence of an immaterial, spiritual reality, unseen by human eyes. The physical reality is evident for all to see-although some doubt the existence of a material universe, t...
John 1:1-4 is perhaps the best location for this. Also, more physics than most can comprehend and always reminds me of another quote from our King, "If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?" - John 3:12 So back to the basics: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." - John 1:1-3 The Word creates and maintains all things at all times. "In him was life; and the life was the light of men." - John 1:4 Within the Word, and only within the Word does life exist. So there we have it. All of the reality we experience with life, the Light, is organized and preceded by the heavenly/spiritual etc., the Word. Light organized by sound. The Truth, from the Word. Christ. And as Christ creates that which we see around us, even now as we read; creating and maintaining that which we see and experience, it should be no surprise then, when science confirms the afore mentioned scriptures, studying the very work of our Father's hands, which are Christ's, they find the creator. Contrary to popular opinion, the bible does lay out 'how' God created; via His Word (John 1:1-3), which was, is and will be Christ. Also important to note that the bible is clear, this is a 'spoken sound' being 'uttered,' and not a concept. (Strong's G3056) Amazingly, there is a science that few people are consciously aware of, though subconsciously we have all seen it, and that is not taught to us while attending school in any formal sense, only through commercials and more indirect channels. This science not only confirms bible passages such as John 1:1-4, but many others, including Ex. 3:14 (my personal favorite) This science is called cymatics and is the study of sound on 'matter.' (John 1:3) More easily: Ever seen an opera singer sing a really high note, and break a glass? Haven't we all? This is not science fiction, rather a fact of creation written in God's word for millennia. The power of the sound waves coming from her voice are 'physically' trying to reshape the glass. As the glass is rigid and fragile, it shatters before coming to rest in its new form. This is a fact, sound organizes matter. Below this answer is a link to a short video about cymatics and the effect it has on 'matter.' If you are familiar with scientific terms, think resonance. Also, as a corollary, NASA released an article in 2003 which proved that not only was 'sound' responsible for all galactic formation, but that the power contained in the sound waves we are experiencing right now, coursing through us all this very moment and organizing and maintaining all things, are something to the effect of the combined power of 100 million super novas! (Link below) Since a super nova, at that time, was the most powerful thing we have ever witnessed, this finding is incomprehensible. Further, the fact that these things line up directly with 'how' the bible tells us God created, it is no wonder it was not widely publicized, bad for the highly publicized and long going 'science vs faith' debate as this truth shatters those walls. It is important to remember, and remain grounded in scripture when delving in these areas. This is not scripture twisted to meet science, and this is crucially important to take away here. It is science proving one of the many, numerous truths revealed in the Word of God, which is Christ. Science and Faith are not separate as the media and Hollywood would have us believe. One points to the other and all things point to Christ crucified. Lastly, we must acknowledge that the very definition of science is the study of the natural world, and so, it directly follows that only natural explanations are allowed and any supernatural explanation must be suppressed or ignored, because allowing them would then change what 'science' is. Many tenured college professors have lost their tenure upon stumbling onto the Truth in Christ. Stay grounded and focused on the goal brothers and sisters, Christ alone!
