Science is a tool that God has given us to study Him. So, we have embarked on a journey to learn about God using science. We don’t claim to have all the answers, what we claim is thorough investigation using tools God has provided. Through science, we can gain a deeper understanding of God and receive answers to some of our more complex questions. Please use our contact form to submit questions. If we feel the answer to your question will benefit our students we will post it here.
How do scientists who believe in God resolve what appears to be inconsistencies between science and the Bible?*
There are no contradictions between science and the Bible. Science explains HOW the events in the Bible occurred.
For example in the Bible it says:
“the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” – John 1:14
Because of science we now know what the WORD becoming FLESH means.
The WORD refers to DNA.
“The information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). Human DNA consists of about 3 billion bases, and more than 99 percent of those bases are the same in all people. The order, or sequence, of these bases determines the information available for building and maintaining an organism, similar to the way in which letters of the alphabet appear in a certain order to form words and sentences.” 
So essentially DNA words, comprised of four letters: A, T, C, and G, arranged in sequences, create flesh.
Hence, science has helped us to understand how the Word becomes Flesh.
In my own research, I have used science to prove God’s existence: Proof of God Using the Scientific Method. So the belief that there is a contradiction is myth – a widely held, but false belief.
What is DNA?
*This question was inspired by a similar question on the internet pertaining to religion.
God has 3 personages: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Given this, what are the mechanics behind God raising up Jesus and allowing Jesus to sit next to Him? If Jesus is God, how does Jesus also manage to sit next to God (i.e. How does Jesus sit next to Himself)?*
In order to answer this question, we would have to know a lot more about quantum physics. Research in quantum physics is not yet mature enough for us to provide a comprehensive answer.
However, we do know that God the Father is Energy and that Jesus Christ is Light. We also know that two physicist have proven that particles of light can be in two places at the same time; from this information we can reasonably infer that it is possible for Jesus to sit next to God (i.e. God being in two places at once.)
“God is a consuming fire.” – Hebrews 12:29
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” – John 8:12
Drs. S. Haroche and D. Wineland won the Nobel Prize in Physics for doing experiments once thought to be impossible, i.e. studying single atoms and single photons (particles of light). They proved the correctness of the bizarre properties of quantum mechanics, i.e. that electrons can be two places at the same time. (See Nobel Prize Awarded to Two Quantum Physicists)
I am sure that in the future we will learn more on the mechanics of how it is that Jesus can sit next to the Father, just like we learned that the term “the word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14) refers to DNA being the building blocks of life.
In time, science will be able to help us understand a lot more about God, which is why the Lord called me and instructed me to establish School for the Scientific Study of God. I encourage you to visit our website and sign up for classes, if you’d like to know more about God from a scientific perspective.
*This question has been adapted from one similar found on the internet.
If God created the universe, then who created God? And who created the creator of God?*
God is energy. He was not created, nor can He be destroyed. (See Conservation of energy – Wikipedia)
This concept is hard for humans to understand because our mind is like an ant compared to God’s (and that is being overly generous to humans).
Imagine a man trying to explain to an ant, how man first landed on the moon. The ant would not comprehend you. But does that mean that man did not land on the moon? The problem with man is that he perceives himself to be superior in the universe, when faced with a phenomenon he does not understand, instead of negating his capacity to comprehend, man erroneously negates the phenomenon that he does not understand.
The relationship between God and man, is like the relationship between man and the ant. Like the ant can never comprehend man and man’s activities, so man can never comprehend God, and God’s activities, unless God chooses to enable comprehension. For now, all we have is that which the Lord has given us – the wisdom of the Bible, which says: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” – Proverbs 30:5

What is the issue with seeing the almighty God as one single person?*
God IS one entity; but according to God, God has the ability to multiply Himself.
Jesus said “I and the Father are One.” – John 10:30
But the mere fact that Jesus exists, Jesus is God, and Jesus has been given the title Son of God, with duties separate and distinct from the Father indicates that God has multiple personalities, each personality, as with a human with multiple personalities, has its own set of unique attributes – even though it is the same person. So there is nothing wrong with seeing God as One, because He is One, but we must recognize that the One is made up of many parts, just like a pie, once sliced is still a single pie, but is now a pie with multiple slices or multiple parts.
Let me see if I can go deeper:
When we think of a person, we think of one ‘self,’ one person, that is embodied inside the human frame that was made from dust – the biological body.
“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” – Genesis 2:7
But with God, the definition of “person” is much broader, because every breath of life that God breathes out, is potentially a new person, a new “self.”
When the physical structure of man dies – that which was made from the dust – that life – that person – that self – that spirit that God breathed out, returns to God.
“For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.” – Ecclesiastes 12:7
So there are many “persons” living in God.
The persons that God creates for Himself (not the ones that He breathes into human bodies) have different functions.
For example God has delegated the function of judgment to the person of Jesus Christ.
“For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son,” – John 5:22.
So, it is true that God is one entity, but like a pizza or pie that has been sliced into multiple parts to serve several people, God has sliced Himself (for lack of a better term) into multiple parts to carry out the various functions of God.
Each slice of God, each person is given separate and distinct functions.
This is how God explained it to me:
“When we are fully engaged in one or more of our numerous emotional states we take form of the current personality. So it can be safe to say that by having numerous emotions we are conformed and binded by the characteristics of the particular one of the point of possession. We are singular in form but just as a sliced pie is singular in overall form when sliced becomes multiples in an over all multiplied but part of a whole singular form. So can it be safe to say that our overall singular personality can be a compound of numerous emotions plural or multiples in singular form? The question at hand is when presented with the notion of what we call multiple personality disorders can we all somehow or another be placed in this category? “ (Transgression of the Orthodox Angle, by John Tunsill, Unpublished).
*Question asked by Augustus Smith
Why are certain people immoral, is it maybe God’s fault?*
Immorality is the result of a choice that an individual makes, that is influenced by their propensity to sin. Let me explain ….
People are immoral because sin dwells in our flesh. I have a hypothesis that the apple in the Garden of Eden was not an ordinary apple, but was a gene altering apple which encoded in our DNA the propensity for sin. The world we live in is evidence that sin is inherent in our DNA, passed down from generation to generation.
So it is not God’s fault that people are immoral because God warned us of what would happen if we disobeyed Him and our ancestors disobeyed Him, or don’t you remember?
Adam and Eve – two naive people living in the Garden of Eden.
“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” – Genesis 2:16–17
Along came Satan and his cunning and outwitted naiveté. Satan convinced Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, and Adam did likewise, and all mankind fell. We all became recipients of penalty inherited from Adam and Eve; the penalty – Death.
But God chose to help us. God did not break or bend His existing laws, He simply created a new Law – much like Congress does – this new law was the law of the Spirit of Life. God sent His Son, Jesus who informed us of this new law. With Jesus, we would be set free if we follow the Law of the Spirit of Life.
So now there are two laws that can possibly govern the life of a man: 1) the Law of the Spirit of Life or 2) the Law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2)
Because of Jesus, we get to choose which law we are going to live by; our actions determine the law that we have chosen.
The law of the Spirit ushered in by Jesus, mandates that we live a righteous life:
“For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 5:20
The Law of sin and death, however, still governs those who choose to live according to the flesh:
“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” – Galatians 5:19–21 (ESV)
“Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh; but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. The mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind of the flesh is hostile to God: It does not submit to God’s Law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the flesh cannot please God.” – Romans 8:5–8
Those who choose to please God and live according to the Spirit are set free:
“For in Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the Law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man, as an offering for sin. He thus condemned sin in the flesh, so that the righteous standard of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” – Romans 8:2–4
What this means is that though the propensity to sin is in the DNA of all of us (we are all sinners) – those of us who trust in God are given the Spirit of God to help us fight sin. The Spirit dwells in us and fights sin for us, so that we can live a righteous life.
“The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other,” – Galatians 5:17
Those who have not requested the Spirit of Life, continue to sin and continue to engage in the works of the flesh. These are the people who will NOT be granted eternal life, but shall experience second death.
“Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” – Revelation 21:7–8
So NO, it is not God’s fault that we are immoral. Immorality is the result of a choice that an individual makes.
