LEGO Ex Abyssi
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.(John 1:14) ESV
yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.(1 Corinthians 8:6) ESV
Given that the Son, the Word of God, is the source and originator of creation, we may understand the Greek words legó and logos to mean: the systematic assembly of parts into a predictable sequence.
The first draft of the January devotional in 2018 began with let there be light: nucleosynthesis. In the present iteration we’re at January 20 and we’re just now ready to discuss it. It turns out that the Bible unlocks experimental and particle physics and takes us back to a time before the mainstream science (SciPop) Big Bang theory.
The Big Bang nucleosynthesis, the progeny of theoretical physics, is starting to look like a poor country cousin. A backwards hayseed hick who has finally become relevant after nearly 3 weeks of discussion.
We’re spicing up our Greek, LEGO, with a little Latin, Ex Abyssi. It’s meant to convey the meaning constructed from the deep. It’s synonymous with nucleosynthesis but unlike the Big Bang theory we have a source of Hydrogen.
Before we discuss nucleosynthesis, however, we’re going to consider how two ideologies, SciPop vs. The Ignorant, view the initial state of the universe. Except that it’s not the initial state of the universe, it’s a derivative of the Holy Trinity. A helpful way to imagine this is the use of LEGO. Yes, the children’s building block system.
What we find is that neither the science nor faith community has a compelling reason why we should believe the SciPop narrative. The only conclusion that it’s possible to reach is that there was never, ever, nothing. We finish up by showing that the mainstream Christian understanding of “let there be light,” is a load of dingo’s kidneys.
