String Theory and Religion

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.

    Dear GodGuy,

    Doesn’t it bother you that one needs to go to such extremes and contortions to prove God exists? If it is indeed possible to prove, then surely God allowed it to be possible, but then why make it so hard?

    PS. The idea that there are ‘now’ 11 dimensions is only one theory among many.

  2. thegodguy says:

    Dear jarrodhart,

    Thank you for your response.

    The task of proving that God exists is not for those who already have strong faith. They do not need my “extreme” book. But certainly if God exists then natural law is a part of the “mind of God.” Which means that a TRUE scientific model of reality (unlike string theory) would be Sacred and Holy.

    However many dimensions YOU or anyone else believes string theory should have is moot. My point is that a proper multi-dimensional theory will lawfully take us from the physical, to the psychical, and finally, to the Divine. My book addresses such a model.

    Furthermore, it doesn’t hurt anything to show how the laws of nature emerged from the psycho-spiritual dynamics of love. Love is more than a mere emotion or romantic feeling. It is the secret to agency in the universe.

    My new book will enlighten both scientists and theologians.

    Spiritually yours,

    There is a new Theory of Everything Breakthrough. It exposes the flaws in both Quantum Theory and String Theory. Please see: Theory of Super Relativity at Super Relativity Einstein was right!

  4. thegodguy says:

    Dear mmfiore,

    Thank you for contributing to the discussion. However, Einstein was wrong about spacetime structure being a continuum, and, wrong about the speed of light being the maximum velocity for the propagation of matter and information.

    A true Theory of Everything (TOE) not only unifies physics, it unifies science with religion. That is the purpose of my upcoming book, “Proving God.”

    Spiritually yours,

    Hello GodGuy,
    I am in somewhat of an agreement with you on both points but aside from those points there was a lot that he was right about. He certainly believed in God. Perhaps not in the way that most people do traditionally but in a more Universal way.

  6. thegodguy says:

    Dear m1,

    Thank you for your positive response. Yes, Einstein belied in “God.” Einstein was right that quantum physics was an incomplete theory. He was also correct in his belief that all the laws of nature can be unified.

    But, it would have blown his mind to discover that physical laws (in spacetime) are derived from spiritual laws and that LOVE is primary causal substance!

    Spiritually yours,
