Right now, I am 34,000 feet above ground looking out of my window, flying on American Airlines to Fresno. I am very thankful that the laws of physics are constant. For a brief moment, I am picturing what I would feel if this plane suddenly dropped out of the sky like a rock! Maybe that is why I have to keep my seat belt fastened; it’s not turbulence, it’s that the laws of physics might change!
The Big Question
Here is my question, “Why are the laws of physics constant?” If everything evolved from nothing, as famed physicist Stephen Hawking is proudly proclaiming in his newest book, then laws that we know today are not a constant. Yet we base our lives and our safety, or dare I say “put our faith,” in the fact that these laws will not change.
This is just one more piece of evidence that, without God, we can’t know anything.
