Science and the Bible

How studying light helps us understand the revelation of God in our world

In addition to our world with time and space, there is a world of light that is independent of time and space – just like the world of God. In the world of light, the clock stands still and the entire space shrinks to one point – this is what Einstein's special theory of relativity teaches. The Bible teaches that there is only one God who, like light, reveals himself as a trinity. The well-known physicist J. A. Wheeler gave the following explanation: „Until its absorption, a photon had no true reality – but when it is absorbed it is an unsplittable bit of information added to what we know about the world.” We can supplement this statement: Until it is absorbed, a photon had no true reality in our world, but in the world of light it is an information quantum. Before the absorption it was 1bit of information in the world of light. In the absorption the photon appears either as particle or as wave in our world. This trinity of light corresponds to the trinity of God: God is the Father in his own world and he reveals himself in our world either as the Son or as the Holy Spirit.

Evolution, Information and the Mystery of the Human Mind

Richard Dawkins used a computer model to demonstrate his concept of a stepwise naturalistic evolution. His concept turned out to be an illusion. The idea to generate coded information such as speech or DNA in a pure naturalistic way is based on foundations of thinking which are contrary to physics and which are unable to explain the human mind.

Are Faith and Scientific Reasoning Compatible?

The proportion of scientists in USA who believe in God did not change between 1916 and 1996. Leading scientists like Planck and Einstein believed in God. Is there no alternative to atheism and which risks are connected with this ideology?

Information in the Bible and in Science

In rabbinical writings as well as in the New Testament, the Word (Information) is taken to be identical with God. Metatron and Memra are rabbinical names for the Word of God. The act of God’s creating is explained in the Bible as the act of the Creator’s speaking. Already 2000 years ago Philo of Alexandria wrote: "God while he spake the word, did at the same moment create". The personified Word (Memra /logos), representing pure information independent of time and space (thoughts, plans) is differentiated from the spoken word (amar/rema), which is a flux of information per time. The hypothesis is presented that a flux of information is equivalent to energy. According to this hypothesis the Creator transformed in the beginning his plan of the universe into his spoken word – equivalent to a huge amount of negative energy and thus created time and space and the beginning of the expanding universe.
