A science student in Kentucky says when the Bible records God spoke, and things were created, that’s just what happened, and he can support that with scientific experiments.
“If God spoke everything into existence as the Genesis record proposes, then we should be able to scientifically prove that the construction of everything in the universe begins with a) the Holy Spirit (magnetic field); b) Light (an electric field); and c) that Light can be created by a sonic influence or sound,” Samuel J. Hunt writes on his website.
“There are several documented and currently taught laboratory experiments that accurately portray the events in Genesis in sequential order, the most important being that of sonoluminescence,” he wrote.
That, he described to WND, is the circumstance in which sending a sonic signal into bubbles in a fluid causes the bubbles to collapse and they release photons, or create light.
That aligns with one of the earlier descriptions of the creation by God, when, in Genesis 1:1-3, the Holy Spirit moved upon the face of the deep, which generally is considered water, and said “Let there be light,” he explained.
God was sending a sonic influence into the waters, and basically creating light, Hunt said. He’s documented his theory, and the experiments he believes back it up, in his “Episteme Scientia, the Law of All That Is.”
Researchers at institutions no less than UCLA and the University of Chicago have verified the production of light from bubbles when sound is passed through a liquid, called sonoluminescence.
Hunt said he was spurred on in his work because the advanced physics and other courses he was taking were advancing propositions that sometimes didn’t match up.
“The further I went, the more my questions seemed to be being answered in the Genesis record,” he told WND.
His abstract states, “An examination of the sequential mathematical and experimental dual proof of the Genesis record of origins underlying the institution of all that is in the universe – from waves to matter to the mind.”
Hunt said science has been proving the Genesis account in classrooms for centuries, “in spite of the fervency to promote evolution and big bang theories.”
A student at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Hunt said his questions started very simply.
“I asked my professors in physics and chemistry, ‘What if I could scientifically prove that all matter was spoken into existence and that all matter could be manipulated by sound just as Genesis says? Wouldn’t that mean God exists and created the universe?” he asked.
“Nobody’s ever done that before,” was the response.
His 84-page treatise, now published, addresses that, he said.
Hunt said he believes every event in Genesis can be observed to be happening daily.
“Either you experience a universe of chaos or a universe of order and processes that produce immediate and calculable results,” he wrote. “The results of my research support and prove that everything that exists was spoken into existence from waves to matter to mind.”
“My professors think my application of accepted laws and theories may bend the rules a bit, but the ideas are thought-provoking and progressive,” he said.
The website describes the integration of several mathematical systems including “Phi, Pi, L-systems, Penrose tiling, and an all-encompassing Koch curve.”
The outline, available at scienceprovescreation.com, already has sold more than 1,700 copies.
Hunt said his goal was to be able to provide experiments that would explain the Genesis creation story – in the order the Bible records events happened.
“Some of my teachers are like, ‘That’s complete hogwash,'” he said, “while others say, ‘That’s pretty interesting.'”
His goal is to bring a unity to the Christian community, “just like the founders of our nation expected and wanted from the Constitution.”
The documentation of his processes, Hunt believes, could end debate.
“People want to know the truth, to have something to stand on that’s not trickery and deceit,” he said. “This gives people something real to touch, hang on to.”
