Science Proves God Exists!
It is wonderful when science and faith come together to help us humans make sense of the world and the God who created this world. This is exactly what has happened for Michio Kahu. For those who have not heard of this prominent scientist, he is celebrated currently as one of the most important theoretical physicists of our current times. He is one of the creators and developers of the revolutionary String Theory which is celebrated as a science-shifting theory that helps explain the origins of our universe.
In discussing his theory, he used the term “primitive semi-radius tachyons.” Tachyons are the theoretical particles that “unstick” matter in the universe, sometimes explained as the space between matter particles. He stated, “I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. Believe me, everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore. To me it is clear that we exists in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.” Kahu is now what we would call a “pantheist” who believes that the order and interaction of our world proves that there is a higher intelligence that guides the forces of our world.
Kahu is not the only popular intellectual honest enough to come to this conclusion. Many have started to recognize that the universe’s display of organization, planning, and construction proves the necessity of intelligence. Andrew Flew is a philosopher who came to the same conclusion, based on logic and philosophical thought. C.S. Lewis is another famous convert from atheism to belief in God. He says, “My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?”
Sensible thought, clear evidence, and reasonable logic caused Lewis, Flew, and Kahu to believe in God. God placed reasonable ideas and evidence in this world to point us to faith. Lee Strobel, once an outspoken atheists, writes, “I’ll admit it: I was ambushed by the amount and quality of the evidence that Jesus is the unique Son of God… I shook my head in amazement. I had seen defendants carted off to the death chamber on much less convincing proof! The cumulative facts and data pointed unmistakably towards a conclusion that I wasn’t entirely comfortable in reaching.”
The reality is that those who honestly look at the evidence will come to the same conclusion—science and the natural world cannot exist independent of a controlling or higher guiding force. We can argue this is the God revealed in the Bible, as Lewis and Stobel have done, or we argue that this is just some supernatural power. Regardless, the proof is there for an honest conclusion that there is indeed a God.
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1.20).
