The new science of “String Theory” is amazing! It attempts to explain that everything in the invisible subatomic world from photons to atoms and neutrons are constructed not of any tangible material but only come into existence as a result of tiny vibrating strings of pure energy. I personally believe science is finally on the right track.  But just what is a string in string theory?

Just as a normal string on a guitar has a resonant vibration that produces a sound strings in string theory also have a resonant vibrations but instead of producing sound, they produce matter and even the invisible forces that hold our universe together. One resonant vibration pattern might result in the creation of a photon while another resonant vibration of a different string results in creating a neutron or a proton or a graviton and so on.

String theory follows Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2 i.e. that energy and mass are equivalent. The more vibrational energy a string produces the more massive a particle that string can produce. In string theory this equivalence seems to correlate for the different masses of different particles and forces in our universe. A lower-energy string creates a less massive particle than a higher-energy string. What determines the type of particle seems to be the movement of the string and the energy associated with this movement. While string theory is still in its infancy what excites scientists so is that it appears that string theory will be able to explain and bring together in one unified formula the theory of everything, which was Einstein’s greatest dream.

From a biblical perspective string theory fits hand in glove with the biblical account of creation where God spoke the universe into existence. He spoke it and it was created:

Gen 1:3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Gen 1:6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

Gen 1:7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen 1:14  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Gen 1:20  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Gen 1:24  And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

As an analogy when we speak what happens? Air moves over our vocal cords and the vocal cords send out vibrations that carry your thoughts as words and ideas through the air. These words and ideas are physical things. Ideas and the words that express them are so powerful that they can change societies, start wars, and bring into creation new things.  Think of Martin Luther King, Hitler, Thomass Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin.

The incredible parallel here is that string theory has exactly the same characteristics that are attributed to the  creation event in the Bible!  The Bible even  seems to speak of the science of string theory.

Hebrews 11:3 

“By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.

Doesn’t this verse seem to be speaking about the same things that we are seeing in string theory?  How could a 3000 year old book know that?

Another intriguing aspect of string theory is the fact that it has concluded that our physical reality is composed of at least ten dimensions; The three that we are physically aware plus time and seven others that we cannot directly experience. This discovery is intriguing because in the 13th century Nachmanides, a Jewish rabbi and scholar, determined from studying the creation account in Genesis that our world was composed of ten separate dimensions.

My final thought is, String theory is going to take physics and science into a completely new direction and into a new understanding of the world. I’m just not sure that many scientists are going to like what they find there.
