GENEVA – Scientists claimed a breakthrough in solving one of the biggest riddles of physics, successfully trapping the first “anti-atom” in a quest to understand what happened to all the antimatter that has vanished since the Big Bang. – AP
Even if you don’t believe in the Big Bang theory, this is big news to all of us. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked. Let’s deal first with the notion that science is anti-religious. This could not be further from the truth. 2 Peter offers us a glimpse into this battle of intellects with this verse:
3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
If you’re able to read this post I’m sure you have some awareness of the periodic table and the list of all ‘known’ elements. How is it possible that Peter is speaking of elements in the bible when the isolation of these elements did not began until recent ‘recorded’ history?
I’ll tell you how. We are inundated with so much information on a daily basis we don’t take or have the time to research something so remedial. So, here’s the big secret (don’t tell anyone though). People in the Bible were studying science too, they just called it by a different name… belief. It deals heavily with the idea of believing what you can’t see, whereas science is more concerned with explaining what it is that we can see and document. One last point to this, for anyone who still thinks science is evil, you may want to consider that fact that it took science to print the very holy text that we read today…hmm.
So, what does all of this have to do with anti-matter? Well, the way that I see it is everything has an opposite regardless of which title you give it; up/down, left/right, in/out and so on. Sometimes the simplest answer is the right answer so I suggest that if there’s a me that I can see (matter) then there’s a me that I can’t see (anti-matter). Interestingly enough, it’s the me that I can’t see that controls the one that I can…(crazy)
Has science found a way to peer into the spirit world? ….just a question.
