ElShamah Ministries: Defending the Christian Worldview and Creationism

Otangelo Grasso: This is my personal virtual library, where i collect information, which leads in my view to the Christian faith, creationism, and Intelligent Design as the best explanation of the origin of the physical Universe, life, and biodiversity

God created. One can call it magic. But a better description is: through his word. And information


God created through his word and information,
A reality not bound by laws of our physical sensation,
It's not magic, but natural to God's laws and creation,
Intelligence and consciousness also part of this equation.

Information is more fundamental than matter or energy,
It's the building block of the cosmos, as some scientists see,
The universe, a physical system that processes information,
And all changes in the universe are computations in motion.

Physics is abstract and describes reality with equations,
But what puts the fire into these equations, that's the question,
Quarks were predicted mathematically before observation,
A language of the universe, a poetic notation.

At the deepest level of reality, mathematics is the key,
A description of a baggage-free structure, for all to see,
And if we seek a physical reality that's independent of us,
It's a mathematical structure, without any fuss.

Physicists see energy as a property, not a force of God's word,
But matter is energy, and not just an object to be stirred,
Information may give rise to both matter and energy,
And be the primary force of God's word and synergy.

God created, not through magic, but his word and information,
A reality beyond our physical sensation,
Intelligence, consciousness, and mathematics at the core,
God's creation, an endless beauty to explore.

God does not equal magic.  God equals a reality not bound by the rules of the physical world.   There can be a reality that we are not able to understand from existing inside this reality that can explain how God and what he does is not magic but completely natural to the laws of the reality of this God.    Conscious intelligence is also not magic but a proven thing to exist and this mental intelligence has been proven to have the force and ability of creating and designing.

According to physics, Information is a far more fundamental quantity in the Universe than matter or energy.  What are the basic building blocks of the cosmos? Atoms, particles, mass energy? Quantum mechanics, forces, fields? Space and time — space-time? Tiny strings with many dimensions? 

Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. This is also known as "the Vacuum" or "The Zero-Point Field."

According to some scientists, information, is the foundation of reality. Paul Davies: "There's increasing interest among at least a small group of physicists to turn this upside down and say, maybe at rock bottom, the universe is about information and information processing, and it's matter that emerges as a secondary concept. "So, what is the universe?" Lloyd asks. "The universe is a physical system that contains and processes information in a systematic fashion and that can do everything a computer can do."He sees the universe not like a computer as an explanatory metaphor; it really is a computer as scientific fact. As such, he claims that all changes in the universe are "computations." Physicist Stephen Wolfram: "simple rules… generate what we see in nature." He described "an ultimate representation of the universe" in terms of "simple rules," which "govern fundamentally" and are "best conceptualized in terms of computation." James B. Glattfelder INFORMATION– CONSCIOUSNESS–REALITY :  The natural thing to do is to postulate consciousness itself as something fundamental, a fundamental building block of nature.  A deeper motivation comes from the idea that perhaps the most simple and powerful way to find fundamental laws connecting consciousness to physical processing is to link consciousness to information. Wherever there’s information processing, there’s consciousness. Complex information processing, like in a human, complex consciousness.   Physicists and philosophers have often observed that physics is curiously abstract. It describes the structure of reality using a bunch of equations, but it doesn’t tell us about the reality that underlies it. As Stephen Hawking puts it, what puts the fire into the equations?  That’s what physics really is ultimately doing, describing the flux of consciousness. On this view, it’s consciousness that puts the fire into the equations.

Quarks “were predicted not on the basis of physical data, but on the basis of mathematical symmetry patterns.” Physicists then made an educated guess that certain physical phenomena would later be found to correspond to these mathematical patterns. It turned out in this case, as in many other great scientific discoveries, to be true. As Frenkel explains, “this was a purely theoretical prediction, made within the framework of a sophisticated mathematical theory of representation of the group SU.”

At the deepest level of understanding of reality (the goal of Tegmark’s inquiry), therefore, with respect to the physical world there is seemingly nothing but the mathematics itself, plus the human “baggage” of words—the “poetry” of physics—that are added by physicists to aid heuristically in their own thinking and in communicating their results to others. But if we want to discover the deepest reality that transcends any human linguistic additions, it will be necessary to limit our claims to an understanding of the mathematics itself. Hence, as Tegmark concludes, if we are to seek a physical reality that is independent of any human influence, it follows that such an “external reality is a mathematical structure.” In other words, “something that has a complete baggage-free description” outside human language “is precisely a mathematical structure” in and of itself alone.

Freeman Dyson, Infinite in All Directions (1988), p. 18
What philosophical conclusions should we draw from the abstract style of the superstring theory? We might conclude, as Sir James Jeans concluded long ago, that the Great Architect of the Universe now begins to appear as a Pure Mathematician, and that if we work hard enough at mathematics we shall be able to read his mind. Or we might conclude that our pursuit of abstractions is leading us far away from those parts of the creation which are most interesting from a human point of view. It is too early yet to come to conclusions.

Physicists, especially the physicists of small things and microcosmic states, see matter and energy vanishing, virtual particles popping in and out of apparently 'nothing' and the indeterminacy of any material state. Some are beginning to see that information, that exists but has zero mass and carries zero energy, and therefore not material at all, is primary over both matter and energy and may even give rise to them. 6

What is energy? In physics, energy is the property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object

Wiki describes energy as " property" . Why is energy not simply the ' force ' of Gods word in action? they talk about an object. But matter is not an object. matter is energy.... 2

How to recognize the signature of (past) intelligent actions




Estimates based on observations from the Hubble Space Telescope and other sources suggest that there may be at least 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe alone.

The biggest known galaxy in the observable universe is IC 1101, which is located about 1.07 billion light years away from Earth in the constellation of Virgo. It is an elliptical galaxy and is estimated to have a diameter of about 6 million light years, making it more than 50 times larger than our Milky Way galaxy. IC 1101 is also one of the most massive galaxies known, with a mass estimated to be 100 trillion times that of the Sun.

That one alone is estimated to contain trillions of stars.

It is also estimated that there are millions of galaxy clusters in the observable universe. On average, a galaxy cluster can contain several thousand galaxies.

922 characteristics of our galaxy and the planetary system must be finely adjusted to the extreme to permit life.

God created all this vast universe, with all its stars, and galaxies, and gave a name to each one of them.

"He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name." - Psalm 147:4
"By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth." - Psalm 33:6
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge." - Psalm 19:1-2

Oh, Lord, your power is immense
Your wisdom, beyond compare
You created this vast universe
With billions of stars to spare

You hung each star in place
With precision and perfect design
And in this vast expanse of space
We see your glory shine

Your creation is a testament
To your great strength and might
From the tiniest grain of sand
To the brightest starry night

But not only have you created
This vast and wondrous sphere
You also made us, mere mortals
With the capacity to revere

We are in awe of your intelligence
And your loving, guiding hand
You have equipped us with knowledge
To explore and understand

So, we praise you, mighty Father
For all that you have done
For creating this magnificent world
And for making us your beloved ones

May we always remember
To give thanks for your great grace
And to follow your path of love and light
Till we behold your glorious face.
