Startling Quantum Mechanic Discovery
November 7, 2010 — As you know, all things that we can see—living or non-living—are composed of atoms. But these atoms are also made up of smaller particles, sub-atomic particles, called quanta.
One of the basic rules of quantum mechanics is that everything is made up of little, microscopic particles. So it is that:
- quantum particles (or light particle " wave packets" as science now calls them) form atoms.
- Atoms form molecules.
- Molecules form objects (living and non-living).
Therefore, all material objects are made up of invisible "particles." We do not fully understand how they operate. But we now know this: that everything we can see is made up of things that cannot be seen. And this is precisely what the Bible said 2,000 years ago: "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (Hebrews 11:3).
Not only are all material objects made up of "particles," they also consist of forces that keep those particles and objects together. We now know from our understanding of quantum mechanics that the force which keeps electrons tied to the nuclei of atoms is LIGHT. So light ties the particles together to form atoms. And atoms are tied together to make molecules. And then, finally, objects. Only in the last century have we discovered that all forms of matter are, in fact, SOLIDIFIED LIGHT!
In the beginning the Creator of the universe said, "Let there be Light" (Genesis 1:3). The very first thing God made was LIGHT. And "God is Light" so this was the Logos, theophany or "appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord" (I John 1:5; Ezekiel 1:28). This was "the beginning of the creation of God," not the beginning of God's creation, which is His handiwork—the Son, Moon, rivers and trees of material creation, but His hands, the beginning of God creating Himself a part of creation, which in the fullness of time was born of a virgin and declared, "I Am the Light of the world" (Revelation 3:14; John 8:12). "He is before all things, and by Him all things are composed and united into one whole" (Colossians 1:17).
Genesis says that our Creator made Light before He made any material thing. It insists He made Light before He made the Sun and the Moon, and the natural types the Spiritual.
I used to ask, "How could light exist before the Sun existed?" But through our new understanding of quantum mechanics, we realize that nothing can exist until light first exists! Our Sun, and every other object in the universe, living or non-living, is made up of LIGHT! You ask, How could the writer of Genesis have known such a deep and mysterious truth? Could it be that the Creator of Light and of quantum mechanics revealed it to him?
So, thousands of years before we discovered the truth of quantum mechanics, the Bible had already revealed that:
- Light was created first.
- Nothing could be made without light.
- Everything is made up of "unseen" particles.
I am asked, do any other "holy books" contain such information?
No other 'holy' book contains such startling truths. The Bible was right before science was.
