  1. God's Amazing Creation What can we learn about GOD from the universe He made? Jeff Zweerink Azusa Pacific University, 16 Oct 2002

  2. Outline Man’s spiritual history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God. A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy • The universe in light • The universe in temperature • The universe in “matter” • Some closing thoughts

  3. The night sky in visible light

  4. The Electromagnetic Spectrum and Atmospheric Transparency

  5. The night sky in radio (just above FM)

  6. The night sky in radio (neutral Hydrogen)

  7. The night sky in microwaves

  8. The night sky in infrared

  9. The night sky in visible light (again)

  10. The night sky in X-rays

  11. The night sky in Gamma-rays

  12. More Gamma Rays

  13. Gamma-ray Bursts

  14. Temperature in the Universe Life is only possible in this narrow range

  15. The universe in “matter” • Everything on Earth is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. This is normally referred to as baryonic matter and composes roughly 3% of all “matter” in the universe • A little more than 30% of the stuff in the universe is some form of “dark matter” that we don’t understand yet • Roughly 65% of the “stuff” of the universe is unlike any thing we are acquainted with. This “stuff” is usually referred to as dark energy and is often associated with Einstein’s cosmological constant.

  16. What about this dark energy? • Acts like anti-gravity so it causes the acceleration of the universe. • May be constant or may change with time • If strictly constant, the initial value must be fine-tuned to better than 1 part in 10120 • If not strictly constant, must answer the question “Why is the dark energy scale about the same as the ‘matter’ scale now?”

  17. God's minimum dimensionality • We live in a 4 dimensional universe that most likely is part of a 10 dimensional space. • Since this universe had a transcendent creator, GOD must exist in at least space-time dimensions (or their equivalent). • Thus, GOD is far more powerful than we could ever imagine.
