Religion and Science⚛️

Many religious people push back on science and physics ideas in fear of accepting something that may go against the Bible. Most Christians are afraid to admit the idea of a Big Bang, or they never even study it, for example. But due to microwave background radiation, we know it existed, among many other reasons.

Not all physicists are atheists or non-religious; as a matter of fact, many are open to the idea of there being a God or even Jesus. Many Christians are not open to all the theories of physics, though. We have to understand that religion isn’t supposed to give us all the information about the universe. It cannot replace scientific research.

The Big Bang theory says that 13.8 billion years ago, this tiny little microscopic point in space generated so much energy, and it went bang! God created light! Then, 13.8 billion years later, humans are created. We are the last thing made in the Book of Genesis also. The sun was formed about 9.2 billion years after the Big Bang!

If you divide 9.2 into 13.8, you have precisely 2/3. So the fraction is 2/3 from light, our sun was created (and as you know, 2/3 is equal to 4/6). So 2/3 and 4/6 are the same fractions. Moses wrote in the Book of Genesis and said, ‘Light was created the first day.’ He says the last thing created were human beings.

Of course, Moses uses the term ‘6 days,’ and the Big Bang uses billions of years. But both agree on the beginning and the end. Moses also says the sun was created on the 4th day of a six-day creation cycle. So there you have it, 4/6. Again, the sun was created and matches perfectly mathematically with the Big Bang Theory.

The language of physics is math. If you want to learn more: please check out this video by John Pennington: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od9NZC1tJ3I

In many places in the Bible, we are told that God is light. ‘God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.’ Did you know that the speed of light moves at a rate so fast with such an enormous mass that everything around it starts to slow? Light is eternal. Not only did God create it, but he is light as well.

We are told that we are made in His likeness and image. The neat thing is, the Big Bang was not even the beginning. Space-time existed before the Big Bang ever happened is what the world’s greatest physicists tell us. Again, that’s because God is eternal. He has no beginning and end.

My article in “SCI Access”

SCI ACCESS: Insights and Information for People with Spinal Cord Injuries published my article.

Here is the link. Be sure to scroll down to page 14 and read “Alumni News.”

In a previous blog post I wrote that I would share the full article when it was published on the internet. This is their May 2013 newsletter issue. If you’re interested, check it out! I hope you can be inspired by some of the amazing stories of recovery and efforts to find a cure.

SCI Access is a newsletter provided by the University of Michigan Spinal Cord Injury Model System. UM-SCIMS is one of only fourteen SCI model systems in the United States.

They call me periodically to complete survey studies. I always gladly cooperate. I love to help U of M in any way I can, because that is the hospital that saved my life. You can also visit their main page: http://www.med.umich.edu/pmr/modelsci/

And this is a blog post I wrote about them back in July: https://zinahermez.wordpress.com/2012/07/04/university-of-michigan-c-s-mott-childrens-hospital/

I was there for almost three months after my accident in October of 1994. U of M became my home. When my future was unpredictable and grim, I felt safe there. When my discharge date drew nearer, I felt afraid and depressed. I did not want to go home because I developed a system there. I had learned how to deal with my injury.

The doctors and nurses were so friendly. Dr. Geiger had a smile that could light up any child’s life. Dr. Polley’s compassion was incomparable. Robin and Julie, my nurses were very kind. It amazes me that it’s been over eighteen years, and my team of doctors and surgeons are still there. Walking the floors of Mott Children’s, saving children, saving lives.

Love is a force that is able to heal the worst of situations. I pray for anyone in the hospital or ill to have the best care, the kind of care I was blessed to have at U of M.
