The gravitational waves may provide a wealth of information about the Kingdom of God.

Our eyes use visible light to see things. At night, when there is no visible light, soldiers may use infrared to see enemy’s activities. In hospitals, x-ray is commonly used to see possible symptoms inside our body. The visible light, infrared and x-ray are electromagnetic waves with different wavelengths. As explained in a previously, electromagnetic waves (photons) are confined in our braneworld, which is a three-dimensional sub-universe embedded in a ten-dimensional bulk universe. If God is some intelligent life who lives outside our braneworld, it is impossible for us to see Him by electromagnetic waves. Furthermore, the matter that constitutes the Kingdom of God does not interact with photons. Therefore, even if God enters into our braneworld, He still cannot be detected by electromagnetic waves.

The only possible way to see the Kingdom of God is by gravitational waves (gravitons), which also travel at the speed of light. Among all elementary particles that are known to us, only the graviton may leave our braneworld and enter the bulk universe. Moreover, the matter in the Kingdom of God is very likely to interact with gravitons. Therefore, it is possible to use gravitational waves to obtain information about the Kingdom of God. However, the gravitational waves are extremely weak compared to electromagnetic waves. This is because the gravitational waves are related to the gravitational force and the electromagnetic waves are related to the electromagnetic force. For the interaction between two electrons (which have both charge and mass), the electromagnetic force is 1043 times stronger than the gravitational force.

The gravitational waves are emitted when the motion of a mass is accelerating (including vibration and rotation), similar to the emission of electromagnetic waves from accelerating charges. Hence, it is very easy to generate a gravitational wave – just shake your head. However, to generate a detectable gravitational wave is a very challenging task. Although the gravitational wave was predicted by Einstein’s general relativity in early 20th century, it has not been directly detected yet. The strongest gravitational wave may come from the rotation of stars. Currently, there are several gravitational wave observatories (e.g., LIGO and GEO 600) designed to detect gravitational waves from the space.

Physicists have found the reason why the gravitational force is extremely weak: because the force may “leak” to the extra dimensions that are invisible to us. For the observer (e.g., God) in the bulk universe, the gravitational force should be many orders of magnitude stronger. Thus, in the Kingdom of God, the gravitational waves could be the major messenger for communication and for obtaining information, just like the electromagnetic waves in our world. Since all our matter particles can interact with gravitons, God is very likely to use gravitational waves to “see” our world. He may also use gravitons to influence our world, ranging from stellar motion, to biological evolution, and to our brain function. The existence of God will be confirmed if the gravitational waves from God are detected.

The most direct proof of God’s existence is to “see” God directly by gravitational waves. The classical method of vibration or rotation of a mass in our laboratory is unlikely to generate detectable gravitational waves. Recently, it has been suggested that the gravitational waves could be generated by quantum methods, similar to a laser that generates photon beams. The gravitational laser is called gaser .

After a powerful gaser is developed, it is quite possible to see God when He is in our braneworld. However, to see anything outside our braneworld will face another difficulty: which direction should the gaser point to? All directions that we can see with our eyes are in the braneworld, but God may be in the direction that is invisible to us. We do not have the answer at this time. However, since the gravitational waves may spread to the extra dimensions that cannot be seen by electromagnetic waves, the graviton beams may reveal the extra dimensions no matter which direction they are pointed to. After we gain more experience, we will be able to know how to probe the extra dimensions by gravitational waves. In the not-too-distant future, the gravitational waves may provide a wealth of information about the Kingdom of God.

Creation: Believe it or not

17 02 2007

It’s hard to imagine anything more absurd than the naturalist’s formula for the origin of the universe: Nobody times nothing equals everything. There is no creator; there is no design or purpose. Everything we see simply emerged and evolved by pure chance from a total void.

Ask the typical naturalist what he believes about the beginning of all things, and you are likely to hear about the big bang theory-the notion that the universe is the product of an immense explosion. As if an utterly violent and chaotic beginning could result in all the synergy and order we observe in the cosmos around us. But what was the catalyst that touched off that big bang in the first place? (And what, in turn, was the catalyst for that?). Something incredibly large has to fuel the original expansion. Where did that “Something” originate? A big bang out of nowhere quite simply could not have been the beginning of all things.

Is the material universe itself eternal, as some claim? And if it is, why hasn’t it wound down? For that matter, what set it in motion to begin with? What is the source of the energy that keeps it going? Why hasn’t entropy caused it to devolve into a state of inertia and chaos, rather than (as the evolutionist must hypothesize) apparently developing into more orderly and increasingly sophisticated system as the big bang expands?

The vast array of insurmountable problems for the naturalist begins at the most basic level. what was the first cause that caused everything else? Where did matter come from? Where did energy come from? What holds everything together and what keeps everything going? How could life, self-consciousness, and rationally evolve from inanimate, inorganic matter? Who designed the many complex and interdependent organisms and sophisticated Eco-systems we observe? Where did intelligence originate? Are we to think of the universe as massive perpetual-motion apparatus with some sort of impersonal “intelligence” of its own? Or is there, after all, a personal, intelligent designer who created everything and set it all in motion?

Those are vital metaphysical questions that must be answered if we are to understand the meaning and value of life itself. Philosophical naturalism, because of its materialistic and antisupernatural presuppositions, is utterly incapable of offering any answers to those questions. In fact, the most basic dogma of naturalism is that everything happens by natural processes; nothing is supernatural; and therefore there can be no creator. That means there can be no design and no purpose for anything. Naturalism therefore can provide no philosophical basis for believeing that human life is particulalry valuable or in any way significant.

On the contrary, the naturalist, if are true to their principles, must ultimately conclude that humanity is a freak accident without any purpose or an importance. Naturalism is therefore a formula for futility and meaninglessness, erasing the image of God from our race’s collective self-image, depreciating the value of human life, underming human dignity, and subverting morality.

“The moral catastrophe that has disfigured modern western society is directly traceble to darwanism and the rejection of the early chapters of Genesis.”
