The capture of the most wanted sub-atomic particle in physics last summer was named as Science journal’s Breakthrough of the Year 2012. (see earlier post on the ‘God Particle’: https://www.streamsinthenegev.com/latest-news/god-particle-found-4-july-2012-2/ )
Now scientists are speculating that the Higgs bosun could also be a cause for the eventual destruction of the universe — should the sun not burn out first.
“It may be that the universe we live in is inherently unstable,” said Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. “And at some point, billions of years from now, it’s all going to get wiped out.
Scientists refer to last year’s discovery as a Higgs boson-like particle, since they’re still working to confirm it really is the elusive particle. The Higgs boson, also called the “God particle”, is believed to give all objects mass. But Lykken says it could also spell doom for the universe.”
We see again that the Bible and Science can be reconciled. True science — knowledge — will confirm what is written for our instruction and admonition in the Scriptures. But, the problem with “Science” is that, while it has much of the data right, too often the scientists do not interpret the data correctly so as to give us the true knowledge for understanding of what it really means, and the wisdom for living in the truth.
The Bible is very clear that this very good universe is going to go, and will be replaced by one that is Perfect! But it will occur far sooner than billions of years from now, but will be within the next 1000 years, give or take a few years.
Gen 1:1,31 “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.” “And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Is 34:4a “And all the host of the heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled like a scroll.”
Rev 6:14-17 “And the heaven departed like a scroll when it is rolled together. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every freeman, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains. And they said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of His wrath has come, and who will be able to stand?”
2Pt 3:3-14 “First, knowing this, that there will come in the last days scoffers walking according to their own lusts and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.
For this is hidden from them by their willing it, that the heavens were of old, and the earth out of the water, and through water, being held together by the Word of God, through which the world that then was, being flooded by water, perished. But the present heavens and the earth being kept in store by the same Word, are being kept for fire until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
But, beloved, let not this one thing be hidden from you, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a rushing noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat. And the earth and the works in it will be burned up. Then, all these things being about to be dissolved, what sort ought you to be in holy behavior and godliness, looking for and rushing the coming of the Day of God, on account of which the heavens, being on fire, will melt away, and the elements will melt, burning with heat?
But according to His promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, looking for these things, be diligent, spotless, and without blemish, to be found by Him in peace.”
