November 26, 2018 - The Logic Behind the Universe

Some people obviously want to do anything they can to justify not believing in God. Perhaps their biggest obstacle is the mere existence of reality itself. Where did it all come from, if not from an eternally-existing creator God?

In recent years some have come up with a novel idea: the universe arose from nothing. Yes, nothing, as in not a thing. Well, that’s absurd, you say. And, yes, it is. However, when you look a little closer, their “nothing” is actually something called a “quantum fluctuation” or a “false vacuum path.” All very esoteric sounding, for sure, and one would need a fair amount of physics to understand what they are talking about.

But you don’t need a PhD in astrophysics to know that whatever a quantum fluctuation or false vacuum patch are, they are not nothing. Which means that, even if one or both of these are how the universe started, the question remains, where did these things come from and why are they there?

All this leads to a joke. A group of scientists tell God that they don’t need him to create life; they figured out on their own how to do it. God asks them to show how, and the first thing they do is bend down and grab a handful of dirt.

“Excuse me,” God interrupts, “but do you mind getting your own dirt, thank you?”

In the above context about the origins of the universe, could not the Lord say, “Excuse me, but would you mind getting you own quantum fluctuation, thank you?”

Yes, we, as believers, need to live by faith. But, contrary to popular opinion, it is a very logical and rational faith, thank you.

A group of scientists inform God that they do not need him to create life since they have found out how to do it geometry dash themselves. God asks them to demonstrate how, and the first thing they do is stoop down and gather a handful of soil.
