Biblical Concept: Resonance of Creation


Prologue: “All Thy works shall praise Thy Name in earth and sky and sea.” (Holy Holy Holy Hymn.)

Introduction: 21st century science just might be suggesting literal occurrences of creation praising God.

Resonance of carbon:

‘**Resonance describes the behavior or the amount of “excitement” in the nucleus of an atom.  Nuclei are normally in what is called the ground energy state, configured for stability and minimum energy.  But nuclei can become excited as a result of colliding with other nuclei.  When this happens, one of the protons or neurons of the nuclei moves into a higher orbit, in much the same way that whole atoms are said to become excited when an electron moves from one orbit to another. Fred Hoyle correctly predicted the precise resonance that would allow carbon to form in abundance, as required by all living things.’  (SHOW ME GOD, Fred Heeren, p. 178 footnote.)

String theory: From The Official String Theory Web Site

So what is string theory, then?

Think of a guitar string that has been tuned by stretching the string under tension across the guitar.  Depending on how the string is plucked and how much tension is in the string, different musical notes will be created by the string.  These musical notes could be said to be excitation modes of that guitar string under tension.

In a similar manner, in string theory, the elementary particles we observe in particle accelerators could be thought of as the “musical notes” or excitation modes of elementary strings. 

In string theory, as in guitar playing, the string must be stretched under tension in order to become excited. However, the strings in string theory are floating in space-time, they aren't tied down to a guitar. Nonetheless, they have tension. The string tension in string theory is denoted by the quantity 1/(2 p a'), where a' is pronounced "alpha prime" and is equal to the square of the string length scale.

Periodic Table of Elements:  Atoms and sub atomic strings = instrumental song groups to God?

Creation groans: Strings sad song, hopeful song. 

Romans 8:19-22  19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.  20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope  21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.  22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

Creations praise of God­:  Strings of song.  Music at differing resonance combinations. 

Job 38:7   7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Psalm 89:5   5 And the heavens will praise Thy wonders, O LORD; Thy faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.

Psalm 148:1-14  1 Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!  2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!  3 Praise Him, sun and moon; Praise Him, all stars of light!  4 Praise Him, highest heavens, And the waters that are above the heavens!  5 Let them praise the name of the LORD, For He commanded and they were created.  6 He has also established them forever and ever; He has made a decree which will not pass away.  7 Praise the LORD from the earth, Sea monsters and all deeps;  8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;  9 Mountains and all hills; Fruit trees and all cedars;  10 Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and winged fowl;  11 Kings of the earth and all peoples; Princes and all judges of the earth;  12 Both young men and virgins; Old men and children.  13 Let them praise the name of the LORD, For His name alone is exalted; His glory is above earth and heaven.  14 And He has lifted up a horn for His people, Praise for all His godly ones; Even for the sons of Israel, a people near to Him. Praise the LORD! (Consider “Forever and ever” in verse 6.  “Nobody actually knows how long an atom can survive, but according to Martin Rees it is probably about 1035 years—a number so big that even I am happy to express it in notation.” Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything, page 134.)

Psalm 150:6   6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!

Habakkuk 3:3   3 God comes from Teman, And the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor covers the heavens, And the earth is full of His praise.

Luke 19:40  40 And He answered and said, "I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!"

Atoms and quantum mechanics:  Demonstrate the 14 dimensional capabilities of the Biblical God.  

Romans 1:20   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. - In simple terms an atom is a cloud of tiny electrons buzzing round a central much larger nucleus in a series of orbits called shells. The innermost shell can hold two electrons, the next one can have up to eight and so on. The nucleus is made up of positively charged protons and uncharged neutrons. The electrons are negatively charged and there is one electron per proton to maintain electrical neutrality. Different elements have a different number of protons ( and therefore electrons) so as you go through the periodic table from Hydrogen (1 proton, 1 electron) to Uranium (92 protons,92 electrons) the swarm of electrons gets bigger and bigger. Like in the solar system the electron orbits are relatively far distant from the nucleus and so most of an atom is empty space. - Atoms are the basic building blocks of ordinary matter. Atoms can join together to form molecules, which in turn form most of the objects around you.

Atoms are composed of particles called protons, electrons and neutrons. Protons carry a positive electrical charge, electrons carry a negative electrical charge and neutrons carry no electrical charge at all. The protons and neutrons cluster together in the central part of the atom, called the nucleus, and the electrons 'orbit' the nucleus. A particular atom will have the same number of protons and electrons and most atoms have at least as many neutrons as protons.

Protons and neutrons are both composed of other particles called quarks and gluons. Protons contain two 'up' quarks and one 'down' quark while neutrons contain one 'up' quark and two 'down' quarks. The gluons are responsible for binding the quarks to one another.


Summary Thoughts:  What humans call inanimate creation, on the quantum level is quite lively.  God’s creation of atoms and sub-atomic particles and their quantum mechanical operations are amazingly powerful and lively.  Creation really does praise God’s Name.  On the quantum level, quite literally.
