- Outspoken atheist and physicist Lawrence Krauss recently wrote an essay about the Higgs boson (aka “the god particle”) for the July 9 Newsweek. While raging about the colloquial nickname, Krauss asserts we don’t need to believe in a God who can create everything from nothing so long as we have quantum physics. Krauss wrote, “Humans, with their remarkable tools and their remarkable brains, may have just taken a giant step towards replacing metaphysical speculation with empirically verifiable knowledge. The Higgs particle is now arguably more relevant than God.” Responding to Krauss, Oxford apologist John Lennox1 has written a thoughtful analysis published August 18 in The Times of London and republished on the Christian Post. In his essay, “Not the God of the Gaps, But the Whole Show,” Lennox makes clear that discovery of a scientific or natural explanation does not write God out of the picture—He’s the one that created the picture in the first place. God created all things—including the laws of physics. And if he chooses to sustain His creation through the physical laws He has created, that does not mean He does not exist or even that He is uninvolved in our lives, individually and collectively, spiritually and historically. Be sure to read Lennox’s analysis, which reminds us of the truly great physicists who honored the God whose creation they studied (though AiG disagrees with Lennox on some matters related to the book of Genesis).
