Natural science covers the study of the physical world and it's phenomena. It covers everything that we can sense, that we can see, touch, hear, smell, and taste. Let us not forget our abilities to reason (think), and feel (emotion), as well.

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

Romans 1:20

33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller?
35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Romans 11:33-36

The learned people of the world tell us this all came about by chance. The universe, and all that is in it, our world, life, all by the roll of the dice, consistently producing the perfect roll over and over again, over countless eons of time. What are the odds? Chance comes down to statistical propabilities. In many places throughout this dissertation we will use statistics and probability to show how inconceivable it would be for our existence to come about by mere chance.

A quick note: The generally accepted value for a statistical impossibility, that is, a probability so low as to not be worth mentioning, is 1x1050. And the presently accepted value for the total number of atoms in the entire observable universe is somewhere around 1x1080. Let's keep these incredibly large numbers in mind when we talk about statistical chance.

Now, let's take a look at how we can perceive the evidence of the handiwork of the Almighty God through various disciplines of science . . .

Life! Does any more need to be said regarding the Hand of an Almighty Architect creating the mere concept, let alone the actual reality of life? The fact that life even exists is a concept of a much higher level than we can even imagine. Combine all the natural sciences; physics, chemistry, biology, earth, etc., and how they all work together like a fine tuned clock that keeps perfect time, life exists. How is this even possible? Certainly not by chance. We will explore the complexities of life, and how an Almighty Creator can be seen in all of life's intricate details with His most magnificent creation.

Our Creator in Chemistry

Substance, that which matter is composed of, exists. Why? Matter can be broken down into individual elements that have specific properties in the way they interact, combine, and change to form new substances. It is amazing how all the elements in nature can combine together to assemble molecules that make up the matter and substances that exists in the universe. And, wth these substances, life can be formed. Truely amazing. Let's see how the elements of the world combine in such a way as to give us our reality. We will see that this is not by chance, but by the Almighty Hand of God.

Our Creator in Earth Sciences

Explore the Wonders of the Science of Our Earth

Of all realities that we perceive, the earth is that in which we live. Our mere existence in the universe is here. The earth, this microcosm, with it's delicately balanced environment finely tuned to support life, is with out a doubt magnificent. It is the closest thing to us in this vast universe to explore and inspect to verify where we came from. The earth holds the clues to our history that we can scrutinize to find the evidence for our provenance. Let's take a look at our immediate suroundings, our balanced environment in this universe, and how the earth shows the existence of the Almighty God.

Our Creator in Astronomy

'The heavens declare the glory!' We look up at the night sky and survey the wonders of the universe. We contemplate what our very existence means in this vast display overhead. The farther we investigate with our various technologies, the deeper we observe, we discover such variety of what is out there, and we can only speculate as to how it got there. Are we just a miniscule instance of chance? Or, are we the key and reason for the universe? Let's take a look at what is out there, what we think we know, and that the reason we are here is because the Almighty God wants us to know that he is for real.

Our Creator in Physics

Explore the Wonders of the Science of Physics

The very first sentence in the Divine Word defines the basic elements of Physics. 'In the beginning (time), God created (energy) the heaven (space) and the earth (matter).' These four components are the cornerstone of our very reality. Our reality exists because of specific laws and principles that govern these, and could not have come about by chance. Why do the laws of physics even exist? Why should there be laws at all? Why should they prevail? We will explore what these laws are, and that the Hand of an Almighty God has woven this intricate fabric of our reality.

Questions Answered About Our Creator

Answers to What This All Means

You will no doubt have many questions regarding the reality of an Almighty Creator in the scheme of our reality. Why did He do it? For what purpose? Our God does indeed have a master plan that individually includes all of us, by His abundant grace, with our free will to follow. It is up to us as individuals to believe in the truth. We have shown the evidence in an Almighty Creator through science. Here we attempt to explain the why's of that which our Magnificent God, in His infinite wisdom, manifested this whole scenario. An attempt at why He conceived and created His master plan.

6 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away.
7 But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory.
8 None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him"—
10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.
11 For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.
13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
15 The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one.
16 "For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?" But we have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:6-16

ATTENTION! - Very Important!

DO NOT just accept my words, or any other person's words or teachings for that matter. By all means, be a constructive skeptic, and study.

15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15

There is only one true Word.

14 The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The record of the Word of God is given to us in the Holy Scriptures, inspired and infallible. Evaluate everything that is taught to you, everything! Measure what is told you against what is taught in the Bible. The Holy Bible was written by men who were individually selected by Almighty God, inspired by God's Holy Spirit to write God's words, infallable and incapable of being wrong, and is completely without error in its original autograph. The Bible is God's Word. With the Word of God, His Holy Spirit and prayer, you will be able to discern what is truth.

21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;

1 Thessalonians 5:21

I am NOT an Apostle, or a Prophet, or a Worker of Miracles, and I cannot speak or interpret "tongues". I am just a seeker of truth.

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6

Jesus is the Truth. I am simply a disciple, a student, a follower of Jesus, Yeshua, the Son of GOD. Jesus is the Way to the Father, the Truth in ALL things, and the Life, Life now, and Life Eternal.

You can't change the truth, but the Truth can change You.

Yours in Christ,

Joel Thomas
