Combining Scripture With Physics

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

(Genesis 1:2) ESV

There are three things in Genesis 1:2, besides the the deep, which describe the state of the universe before God said “let light be.” We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) use this to deduce that it was a zero-G environment.

As with all our work on deducing how the Bible interweaves with science we have to know the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. There’s another concept which we have to consider, something which has profound significance for both science and the broad narrative of scripture: gravity. There are two ways to tackle this:

  1. Biological evidence of zero-g, (yesterday)
  2. combining scripture with physics (today).

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

Combining Scripture With Physics

On the first day God gave a command which started the interconnected processes of Nucleosynthesis and Abiogenesis. By the end of the first day there was a watery matrix that included all of the atoms, molecules and replicating life forms of exceptional size that we know from Precambrian fossils. It was the primordial soup that popular science (SciPop) predicts was the cauldron where life began. The teaming life obscured the light, and It became dark (night).

Given that dark is the opposite of light, and we know that God’s desired outcome is pure light, we can use the terms used to describe the process of evolution from cladistic, phylogenetic systematics. We can say that dark is the primitive state, while light is the advanced condition. This gives us the ability to code this into a binary character state matrix where primitive = 0 while advanced = 1. Now, the question is: dark is only one of three states mentioned. Can we assume that the opposite of the other two states is the desired outcome of the creative process? And what happens if we do? It gives us a predictive testable hypothesis.

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

– Faith, definition

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 26

  • IF the deep was formless,
    • BUT in a gravitational field water forms a sphere,
  • THEN on the 1st day (and before) the universe was a zero-G environment.

– Primitive and Advanced States of the Deep.

We’re going to consider the implications of each of these three character state transitions because, among other things, they open up the way to a theory of gravitation.
