The Bible records that, in the beginning (time), God created the heavens (space) and the earth (matter). So the universe itself is a three-in-one of sorts, thereby reflecting its Maker. The logical, orderly way the universe behaves is also a reflection of the One who made it and sustains it by the word of His power.
What should be the reaction of Christians to “weird physics”? If a scientific model does not contradict the Bible, then we should be excited to see what new insights we can gain about the Creator and His workings. As with the question of origins, we must interpret the data through the lens of biblical revelation.
No experiment can prove how the universe formed because there is no way to verify for certain that the experiment matches the conditions at the beginning. The Standard Model of Particle Physics may or may not be correct about the Higgs boson but as Christians we still have confidence God is holding all things together (Colossians 1:16–17).
The Higgs boson, nicknamed the “God particle,” reveals nothing about the origin of the universe—but it does divulge secrets about how the universe operates.
The characteristics of math reflect characteristics of God, its Creator.
Water conceals little-known, life-saving secrets. One of them is its ability to resist burning!
When modern evolutionary physicists begin to connect the dots with abstract ideas that can’t be tested, even they are alarmed.
Two fundamental laws of physics clash if we try to explain the universe’s origin without a Creator.
Some realities of nature are so common that we don’t even stop to ask why. Like round trees.
How can one type of crystal adopt so many beautiful forms? Some of the world’s greatest scientific minds have puzzled over this question.
We’ve always heard that oil and water don’t mix, but sometimes water and water don’t mix.
God clearly had people in mind when He designed this lowly plant with so many desirable qualities.
The asymmetry between matter and antimatter is not a problem if God created the universe as Genesis 1 says that He did.
How do you make water flow upward? It’s not a problem if you’re the Creator of the universe.
Even a cat lapping milk displays the elegance of the Creator’s design!
Try some air pressure experiments.
Learn more about the strength of eggshells by conducting some experments.
History shows that scientific “truth” changes over time. The uncertainty is the reason why continued testing of our ideas is so important in science.
Try a complex fold based on the beech leaf that is used for maps.
Space, time, and matter are all examples of “three-in-ones” in nature. Perhaps God created them in this fashion to declare His own triune nature.
Physics is a relatively “clean” science because it deals mostly with the world as it exists. Yet it has struggled to explain some weird experimental results.
It would seem that this everyday gravity force should be one of the best understood concepts in science. However, just the opposite is true.
