For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,g in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.(Romans 1:20) ESV
IF it may be shown that the Bible can account for ALL physical evidence and empirical observations, THEN the truth about God is self-evident, THEREFORE no one has an excuse.
This just happens to be the sentiment of the passage from Romans chapter 1 above and we can use the premise of Romans 1:20 as a predictive testable hypothesis. Rather than there being a supposed logical gap between God can’t lie and the Bible is true, the way in which we would deduce them from our axioms is the same in each case, therefore they’re the same Principle.
Principle I Deduction 3
- IF it may be shown that the Bible can account for ALL physical evidence and empirical observations,
- THEN the truth about God is self-evident,
- THEREFORE no one has an excuse.
We can even consider these statements to be either side of an equation, or couplet, which may be written two ways:
God can’t lie, therefore, the Bible is true.
The Bible is true, therefore, God can’t lie.
This means that the claim that the Bible makes: the truth about God the creator is self-evident and no one has an excuse, is a conclusion which can be deduced from physical evidence and empirical observations (which it has to be if it’s true).
- IF the truth about God is self-evident such that no one has an excuse not to believe,
- AND the Bible gives us an accurate physical description of the origin, history and future of the universe,
- THEN examination of physical evidence and empirical observations will reveal the truth about God.
The body of work we’re calling Matty’s Paradigm and WHY? is a positive result. We’ve shown that it’s possible to resolve scripture with particle physics, time, gravitation, electromagnetism, the history of the Earth, and a physical mechanism for the plan of redemption in which Jesus Christ is still the savior and old-fashioned sinners still get saved the old-fashioned way. It’s brought forth the fabled unified theory of everything.
A Unified Theory of Everything
If science can prove that the Bible is true then what does this mean for atheism? It’s not intellectually viable. This isn’t about what Matty can prove to the world any more. The world doesn’t care. This is what Matty can prove to God may be deduced from the evidence, as God promised.
