While string theory has some flaws, at least it puts forth a scientific worldview that reality may consist of extra dimensions beyond Einstein’s 4-dimensional spacetime continuum.
As someone personally interested in unifying science with theology, I find string theory useful in getting people to accept “hidden realities.”
However, string theory is flawed because scientists insist on describing the ultimate reality from physical principles only. No matter how many dimensions they add to their model (there are now eleven dimensions) they keep them physical. Many scientists will openly admit that if reality is based on metaphysical principles, then such non-physical principles have nothing to do with real science.
In other words, those who participate in doing “real” science are not necessarily concerned with ultimate TRUTH.
If God created the physical universe, then it all must have emerged from a pre-space realm. If a Creator-God and a heavenly kingdom exist beyond the physical world of time and space, then any real and complete multi-dimensional model will have to include this non-physical ontological reality.
This means that a new multidimensional model still awaits us on the horizon—one that will demonstrate not only a hierarchical layering of distinct structures of space, but that the fabric of reality actually removes itself from spacetime constraints in these higher dimensions. The physics ruling the universe on a fundamental level, such as quantum non-locality and non-separability, have their origins in non-physical (spiritual) dynamics.
This presents a challenge to scientists as well as to theologians! Theology based on God’s Holy Word states that all created things were created from the Word (John 1:1-3). The Holy Word of God not only existed in a prenatal universe, it must have also contained the patterning principles for all the laws, forces, and organized structures (including organic life) of the physical world.
Since God’s Holy Word has its physical equivalence in the revealed wisdom of Holy Scripture, then there is good reason to believe that a most profound science is hidden within the sacred architecture of Scripture.
Those you who have faithfully been following my posts over the last year know that I am currently writing a book entitled “Proving God,” which addresses the science of Scripture. The book will demonstrate that God’s Holy Word is a multidimensional document, and when properly understood, can lead to an exact science.
Einstein once said that if he could understand all the laws of the universe he would understand “how God thinks.” But God thinks from Infinite love! The next upheaval in science will come from the recognition that LOVE is the first causal principle and ultimate formative substance in the universe. My new book will show how LOVE can lead us to the ultimate science!
This book will be made available shortly. STAY TUNED.
