How Physics Can Prove the Existance of God
Physics does not disprove Gods existance like some religious people think. In fact you could say that it proves that he does exist. There are lots of things in Phyics that point to the chance of God's existance.
The Big Bang Theory and Creation
The Big Bang Theory says that the universe came to be from nothing and the Bible says that God created it from nothing. Now in Physics energy cannot be created from nothing so how can the universe have sprung from nothing? Well if God created it then he used his own energy to create it making it possible for his existence.
The next problem comes in the difference in the lengths of time it took for the Universe to form and evolve to the point of earths creation and our own existence. The universe is nearly 14 billion years old and the earth was formed nearly 10 billion years later, yet in the Bible God created the Heavens and the Earth in just 6 days. Now how can we use Physics to explain this? Well as you should know a day on Earth is a different length than one on Mars. This is not a large a gap as the Bible and Big Bang but it is a start, as it shows that time can be perceived differently in different places. As the Bible texts are considered to be thousands of years old time as we know it now didn't exist. They used the sun so would have probably only counted days not minutes and hours like we do today. This does not explain the large gap between the Bible text and the Big Bang theory of the universes creation. What we need to look at is something called time dilation as this phenomenon could be the explanation we could use to prove God's existence.
What is Time Dilation?
Time dilation is the name given to the effect that movement or gravity has on how two different observers see an event.
"In the theory of relativity, time dilation is a difference of elapsed time between two events as measured by observers either moving relative to each other or differently situated from a gravitational mass or masses."— Time dilation - Wikipedia
The twin paradox is a thought experiment that involves a pair of identical twins. One is sent into space on round trip in a high speed rocket and the other stays on Earth. When the first twin returns from their trip the two are compared. The result in theory is that the twin who stayed on earth will look older than the one who went into space.
This is the best explanation of why there is such a large gap in time periods between the Story of Genesis and the Big Bang Theory.
