What will happen to Science after the Second Coming?

After the Lord’s return, after the Lord has created a new heaven and a new earth, will scientists be out of a job?

If all things will be “made anew” by the Second Coming, will scientific research and experiment be shut down? Or, will there be a new science as well?

The answer is “yes.” There will indeed be a new science.

How science will be changed will only become clear when the world acquires a more enlightened idea (heightened consciousness) of the true nature and signification of this theologically-driven cosmic event. Counter to what most people believe, and most clergymen teach, this re-creation of everything will not be a physical event.

Changing the entire world before one’s very eyes is more intimate than the physical destruction of planets and stars or battling seven-headed dragons. It involves the Lord entering our hearts and minds and changing our worldviews, values and conscience.

When our inner world of spirit changes, the whole way we look at the outer world changes as well. Isn’t the essence of religion love? Then why wouldn’t the Lord take aim at our hearts?

The secret of the Lord’s Second Coming is that all the fantastic events that are described in the Book of Revelation are actually symbolic of the challenges and battles we will face in our hearts and minds when the Lord seeks entry into our lives and put our house in spiritual order.

In other words, God’s Holy Word is written in such a way that physical things are cleverly used to depict spiritual things. Religion and salvation is a fight for our hearts and minds. A physical battle and bloodshed is unnecessary and doesn’t make angels out of anybody.

So what does this mean for scientists? Well, the concept that physical things correspond to spiritual things is not just a Divine style of writing from God. It is a real science!

The science of correspondences has the potential to give scientists new answers to the mysteries of creation, evolution, top-down causality, and a grand unified theory of physics (not to mention a deeper understanding of the process of salvation and eternal life).

So scientists will indeed have plenty to do after the Lord’s return. In fact, science will ultimately become unified with theology and explore phenomena whose dynamics are totally removed from any involvement with time and space – that life continues to operate in a non-local, pre-geometric realm (which religion calls heaven).

Any questions?
