Author Mark Hicks has made an incredible connection between the Bible and quantum physics in his book, "Surprise: The Agreement of Quantum Physics, Relativity & the Bible / Modern Science and the Bible: They Say the Same Thing."
Hicks says that when looking at physics from a spiritual standpoint, everything seems to make sense and if thought about it, it is not "strange" at all.
"Today's physics actually confirms what the Bible says about the nature of God, His creations and reality," a press release said.
In the book Hicks reminds readers of the single constant in the universe, light, not space and time. The Bible says that God is Light, and God is our constant.
Both the Bible's teachings and quantum physics say light is the mechanism through which everything exists. Atoms emit or absorb light, therefore everything this world is made of is a product of light and energy. The Bible teaches that light is the means by which God created the universe and light, and God continues to hold all things together.
Quantum physics finds that atoms exist in a semi-real, pure potential, virtual state until a viewer looks at them with an expectation. It is the expectation of the viewer that determines their actual, "real" nature in that moment. Similarly, the Bible says that faith determines the nature of that person's reality.
"Whatever the truth is, it is not going to change regardless of who is trying to find it. Is there really any reason for secular science and theology to regard the other as counterproductive when they are both seeking the same thing?," said Hicks, according to a press release.
Hicks hopes to close the gap between science and religion, and show people they can co-exist in the same universe.
