Defending the Christian Worlview, Creationism, and Intelligent Design

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 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
