God and Quantum Physics

Can we find an answer to the question of the meaning of life through science? It is tempting to think that science can provide answers that religion cannot, and certainly it can to some extent: the How rather than the Why of life in the universe. But if you look into science more you discover that there are some very basic questions that science is still grappling with: How is the universe shaped, for example, or What is the nature of time, and Are there multiple universes?

And then there is the issue of the “One Theory.” Scientists have been trying to reconcile the theory we have used with great success to explain how things work on the large-scale – The Theory of General Relativity – with another theory that explains how things work on a sub-molecular level – Quantum Mechanics. And so far they have been unable to reconcile the two. That is no small matter (pardon the pun).

About Mona

I am a wife, mother, and author. I taught high school for 27 years and I was a hospital and hospice chaplain until my health required that I retire. I miss my hospital coworkers and cannot imagine how terrible this year and last year have been. I want to be there for them in at least this small way.
