Spooky Stuff

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:                             Romans 1:20 (KJV)

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore, with loving kindness have I drawn thee…                                                                                                          Jeremiah 31:3 (KJV)

I am fascinated with science. I think that science and faith are perfectly suited partners. God has made order out of the universe, and faith and science are partners in explaining it. We often do not understand how God does things, but just because we do not fully understand things is not a reason to deny or avoid them.

Take the concept of “quantum entanglement”. This is a process I do not really understand, but to me, the concept is beyond amazing. In brief (because I do not know much more than brief!), sometimes when subatomic particles are measured, they can form a pair. This pair will have a relationship of spin that will always correspond to the other, even though they can be separated by great distances. This persistent “communication” remains intact, and it has not, to my knowledge, ever been fully explained or understood by physicists.

This falls into that category that Einstein himself called “spooky”. (By the way, don’t you just love that Einstein in used the word “spooky”?) Things like this are just the tip of the iceberg of stuff we do not understand. I find it simply more justification for seeing God as the master builder of a marvelous and beautiful plan.

So, we can call it a miracle, or we can say that we just don’t understand it. Either way, it points to a God who can be seen in his creation. Faith helps us to understand that this same God loves us with an everlasting love.

That is not spooky at all.

Prayer: Wow, your creation is amazing! Help us always better see you in it, Amen.
