Can science prove the existence of God? Well check out these scientific explanations!
Science and religion don’t always go together. Nonetheless, a number of intrepid scientists have made it their mission to prove the existence of God (with a capital G) with science. Some of these theories have their own holes and critics, but believers may find it attractive to learn that science may be starting to align with their beliefs.
Physicist Kurt Godel created a mathematical equation based on Saint Anselm’s ontological argument for the existence of God. The argument is based on the premise that God is the greatest being in the universe. If God does not exist, he (or she, or it, whatever floats your boat) does not exist. And a greater being—one that exists—is possible to imagine. But since it’s not possible to imagine a being greater than the greatest being in the universe, then God must necessarily exist.
#1. Kurt Godel’s modal logic
Following the same logic, Godel says since it’s not possible for God to not exist in any of the infinite number of universes, then God might exist. In 2013, logicians Christopher Benzmüller and Bruno W. Paleo ran Godel’s equations on a computer and found them to be correct.
#2. Theory of physical constants.
There’s a popular theory that says the universe is a holograph. And if it is, then there has to be a higher being that created the simulation. One scientific explanation that may support this theory is that of physical constants.
Constants are anything in the universe that stays the same, no matter the time or space they may be in. Examples include the speed of light and the charge of an electron. The theory goes, if we can find errors or glitches in the matrix—instances where the constants are no longer constant, it may be proof that someone controlling the holograph exists.
In 1998, Australian researchers said they believed the speed of light has changed. The researchers saw that light from distant stars was absorbed by intervening gas clouds on its 12-billion-year journey to Earth, something which is not possible if speed of light hasn’t slowed down.
