Is there a God? (Part IV)
One bizarre concept, the Multiple Universe theory, tries to explain how our observation changes what is happening in reality. Since on a subatomic level our existence is not definitive, but one based on probability then in one universe I am writing this blog, in another universe I may sleeping, and even in other universes I may not be born yet. How can something like this happen without a higher being involved? This theory almost resembles Dr. Seuss’s “Horton Hears a Who” except Horton can exist in both worlds at different points in his life. In fact, there are an infinite number of universes that Horton may exist. There are as many universes necessary to cover all possible probabilities (potential outcomes) of Schrödinger’s equation. The Bible, in fact, gives us clues that quantum mechanics was part of God’s plan to create the universe. God said “Let there be light” as the first step in creating the universe. Quantum mechanics has taught us that light is the energy that binds and holds matter together so it makes sense that the first thing God created was light. In Hebrews 11:3 it says "By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen." This is so true, everything we can see is made up of things we cannot see. In Peter 3:8 it states "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." This sounds like the theory of relatively. Everything is summed up fairly well in Corinthians 4:18 when it says "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." These are just a few examples of many that show how the Bible supports quantum theories. None of this is proof that a God exists, but it is an awful lot of circumstantial evidence. If this case was tried in a court of law it is becoming more and more apparent that there is enough evidence to say a God exists: The creation of the universe and Earth that followed a perfect chronological order of unlikely events to support life, precisely measured universal constants, quantum theory’s bizarre probability state, and the biblical support of these theories.
