I sometimes refer to God as the Master Bioengineer. :-)
My unscientific observation is that a lot of intelligent
folks do believe in God. Einstein's saying as "How did
he do it?" The more you realize you don't know, the
more humble you become and the more you realize their is
someone's hand in all this.
First sentence of the Nicene Creed:
"We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of
heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible."
Wisdom of Sirach, chapter 38, v6, KJV:
And he hath given men skill, that he might be
honoured in his marvellous works.
Glory be to God!
It also helps when you have a personal relationship with Jesus
(God) and one of his saints. Can we say "voices in our heads?"
In the UK, "public school" means private school (the one you pay for). "Private school" also means private school, so I say private school.
Having typed school 5 times in the above line, it now looks spelt wrong!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
I love to discuss quantum physics in relation to outer space in
discussions about belief in God. How is time measured in space, how do
we know time has always been constant there since many people like to
put a number on the age of the universe and use that as evidence to
estimate the age of the Earth.
I've had some VERY interesting discussions like that!
...a constant discussion and conversation, I'd say.
Something I have found interesting is Einstein's take on
quantum physics. He did not believe it to be correct
because "God is not random". And indeed the theory
which is starting to replace quantum physics, called
String Theory, is not random.
Problem with quantum physics is that it is not unified,
meaning it does not incorporate gravity in its model.
String theory does.
We have a saying in our church. "Do not seek the truth
in science, for today's truths are always tomorrow's
falsehoods. But instead, seek the truth in Jesus Christ,
who is the way, the truth, and the light."
One of my most fascinating courses in college was the
history of science. It was all about tomorrow's
falsehoods. Caloric was a huge one.
My personal belief is that when the eight day comes
and all is revealed, that all our humanity's collective
knowledge and all our machines, we will have not scratched
one cell in God's finger.
I also think that ever since the first human eye laid
sight on the first star in the sky, that we were meant to
go there. I look forward to the light barrier being
broken. I will probably have to watch that happen from
And we have Saint Moses to thank for science:
Genius 1, 1-5 KJV
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved
upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided
the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
And that was the beginning of science. The universe was
a creation of God and what we observed around us was nature,
not the work of petty human like gods and magic.
Glory be to God!
String theory is really w-e-i-r-d.
