Recently the scientists at CERN (European Laboratory for Particle Physics) ignited fireworks around the world with the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson, a.k.a., the God Particle. Congratulations are in order for Professor Peter Higgs and the thousands of scientist around the world who labored to detect the illusive subatomic particle.
The discovery is a great milestone in physics research and deserves honor due the intelligence and hard work. However the spin doctors are turning up the volume with various predictions of the impact such a discovery as it relates to science and religion. The age old discussions and arguments continue about the role God play in proven science discoveries.
Some suggest that the discovery of the Higgs boson have finally put God out of creation. Others have proclaimed God is not needed, He is irrelevant and redundant to scientific data, and His validity questioned. The overwhelming amount of scientific data from the super intelligent human brains has somehow buried the Creator. These obituary type statements have been made throughout the ages. However God has some ‘data’ to add to this discussion.
God proclaimed the God particle over 1900 years ago. Hebrews 11:3, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” KJV
Contrary to logic, and without instruments, God states everything that can be seen (matter) was made of things which cannot be seen; elementary particles which include the Higgs. The “footprint” of the Higgs was detected. As stated in the bible, it can’t be seen and yet gives mass to other particles so they can be seen, no shenanigans needed. Peter Higgs theorized it in the 1964, CERN discovered it in 2012, God proclaimed it 1900 years ago and He created it billions of years ago; it is God’s particle.
In addition to the God particle, the bible proclaimed proven scientific discoveries as it relates to the creation of the universe. In his book, What is Time? -Answers: Did God Create the Universe, Tate Publishing, release scheduled for retail November 2012. (www.whatistimebook.com) Author Gary Driver describes and illustrates God’s proclamations in the bible of these scientific discoveries: time, fabric of space, elementary particles, flat universe, expanding universe, law of physics, Sun orbit Milky Way, jet stream, Earth hangs on nothing, Earth is round, Moon influences tides, accelerating universe, the Doppler Effect, gravitational red shift and others. It is also God’s expanding, accelerating, and flat Universe
God has been proven by the empirical scientific data. By this we know the bible is of divine origin because the Bronze Age illiterate peasants surely could not deduce such knowledge.
There is no conflict between proven science and God. Scientific research is necessary to better understand how God created this great universe.
