We parents and grandparents who believe in God often tell children that “God is everywhere, sees everything, and is all powerful.” Most of us who read the Bible accept this by faith. After all, that’s what Bible readers observe. But what if it were mathematically possible to demonstrate that God could be everywhere, see everything, and was all powerful? What kind of impact would that have?
I am not a math whiz. But I do have a command of the four basic math functions. And I can look up pieces of information on the Internet. Here is one such piece that I submit for your inspection.
Einstein’s theory of relativity, E=MC squared, has been used for space and time calculations since it was first publicized in 1905. But my understanding of it became more clear when I turned it around and formed it into the following sentence: Mass traveling at the speed of light squared equals or becomes pure energy, and ceases to be physical matter. So I asked myself a question. “What happens when God is figured along with E=MC squared, as it applies to here and now on the earth? The figures are interesting.
According to Google, the circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles. The speed of light, according to space.com is 186,282 miles per second. Dividing the latter by the former, an entity could travel the earth 7.48 times per second.
I speculate that the angels sent to minister to us, as mentioned some 192 times in the Bible, move at the speed of light. Archangels are called “bearers of light.”
But what about an entity moving at the speed of light SQUARED? Multiplying 186,282 miles per second by itself equals 34,700,983,524 miles per second. Divided by the circumference of the earth (24,901 miles) my calculator reads 1,393,557.83.
This would be the number of times an Entity could run around the earth EACH AND EVERY SECOND of the day, 24/7. Just for fun, look at 2 Chronicles 16:9, which says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro THROUGHOUT the WHOLE earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him.”
Think about it. If “the eyes of the Lord” are running all over the earth as described in 2 Chronicles, He would have to run very fast. How about almost 1.4-million-times-per-second-fast? He could be everywhere at the same time(Omnipresent), see everything (Omniscient),and would certainly be All Powerful (Omnipotent).
Let’s see how the atheists react. One may challenge the Bible, if one dares, but let’s see them refute Albert Einstein.
Proverbs 15:3 says, “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” It’s nice to see that Einstein seems to agree with that.
