The Mathematical Equation Of God


                               By Phil Scovell

          I am no scientist.   I did dissect a frog  in high school biology
     class, he was dead  of course, but I doubt that ranks me up there with
     the great scientific  minds of the  world today.   For that matter,  I
     never cared for math all that much in the first place.  I even dropped
     out  of my second year  of high school algebra the  second I found out
     you didn't need two years of algebra  to graduate at that time.  I did
     become  slightly more  interested  in mathematics  in  general when  I
     studied, at  the age of 13, for my  amateur radio exam, and subsequent
     exams over the years, as I progressed up the latter.

          At the age of ten, I found electronics very interesting.   When I
     discovered a  friends TV repair shop in his basement, I began spending
     hours asking all kinds of questions as he worked at his bench.  Seeing
     my definite interest,  he began taking me on house  calls and teaching
     me what he knew.

          One day he  said, "Phil, you need  to get your ham  radio license
     with your interest in electronics."  I didn't know what he was talking
     about so after that  house call that night, he took  me into his radio
     room, turned on all the equipment, and I was hooked.

          About this same  period of time, my father became ill at work one
     day and three weeks later, he died unexpectedly.  Six months following
     his death, I began having problems with my retinas and a year after my
     father's death,  and more than a  dozen eye operations, I  was totally

          I  never forgot all the fascinating  things about electronics and
     when  we moved to  Nebraska and I  began attending the  school for the
     blind, a student befriended me who just so happened to be studying for
     his ham  radio exam.  The school  had a ham station set  up and by age
     fourteen, I had my license.

          What's all this have to do  with God?  Haven't you ever  wondered
     who and what God is?  He has  personality, this we know, as Christians
     I mean,  and we read about  His persona throughout the  Scriptures but
     what is He?  By that I mean, what is God made of, or spoken correctly,
     of what  is God made?  This question  alone, to some, is disrespectful
     and even irreverent.   It may, in  the minds of some,  be sacrilegious
     and blasphemous.   However,  in my healing  journey and walk  with the
     Lord these  past fifty years, I have learned  that God isn't afraid of
     my questions.  Why should He be?  He knows all the answers.

          Generally speaking, we know what we are made of, that is, we know
     that all things are made of matter.  Matter  is essentially atoms.  We
     can't see these tiny little solar  systems but when they are collected
     together in one  place, they make up  the wooden desk I  am seated at,
     the chair I am sitting  on, the keyboard I am  typing with, and as  my
     computer runs, trillions of  atoms or doing their thing  in my office,
     streaming down the  cable to a satellite dish, out into space, passing
     through a geosynchronous satellite thousands of miles above the earth,
     back down again to a ground based  receiving satellite dish, and flows
     through  all sorts  of  wires and  cables and  fiber optic  lines, and
     continues its speed of  light journey into  your computer as you  read
     this article  about God.   We  can't see  the with  the naked  eye, of
     course, but none of us have any problems believing we are sitting on a
     chair, watching television,  listening to the radio, viewing the stars
     at night,  or looking up  into the sky  and seeing clouds  drifting by
     with the sun shining nearby.  Scientifically, on the other  hand, many
     find the concept of  God impossible to believe.  After  all, seeing is
     believing?  Yes,  I know we can  see some things which  are invisible,
     such as  atoms, if  we used  specially designed  electron microscopes.
     Even many  of the  lights we see  in the sky  at night, which  we call
     stars, are not  even there any longer because some of the starlight we
     see were, I say were,  emitted millions of years ago, we are told, and
     are flashing over the  vastness of empty space from dead  stars.  Yet,
     because we are hundreds of millions  of light years away, we are  only
     seeing  their left  over light  emissions before  the stars,  or suns,
     winked out of existence.

          Then there  are  black holes.    No one  has  ever seen  one  but
     mathematically, it is  believed they are  there.  This  is what I  was
     getting to.  The scientist, although  he cannot now, nor ever will  be
     able, to see  certain aspects of our universe  outwardly, or inwardly,
     that  is atomically  and subatomically,  still  believes that  certain
     things he cannot see exists  based upon mathematical calculations.  At
     first,  therefore, scientists could not calculate something as complex
     as God but then came quantum mechanics.

          Not only am  I not a scientist but  I am not a teacher  of any of
     the sciences.  I am likewise not  a theologian or a Bible scholar.  So
     what  you are about  to read is  only basic in  nature from a layman's
     viewpoint  and understanding  of what  he  has read.    It isn't  even
     necessary you understand  a single word I  say but you can  still know
     God on an  intimate personal level  that literally  few people in  the
     world, or even throughout history, have ever spiritually experienced.

          Let's get one question out of the way right off the bat.  "Is God
     a   hypermathematical  equation?"    The  scientist,  or  the  quantum
     physicist,  might say  such was  possible,  although I  don't know  if
     anyone  has ever tried  mathematically theorizing God's  existence and
     composition,  but   that  is   only  because  he   believes  more   in
     mathematically based theory than he  does eternal knowledge.  In other
     words, 1 times  one can only be  one.  Of course,  this same physicist
     believes  in parallel universes  all coexisting simultaneously.   Some
     believe that  everything a  black hole sucks  into its  bottomless pit
     dimensions is crushed  to barely above the level  of matter, including
     light itself, and is  then deposited at the end of the black hole into
     another universe.   Mathematically, of course,  it is theorized  these
     parallel universes exist.   Some have black holes, they  say, and some
     don't.  This is convenient because then matter  is never destroyed but
     transferred to another universe.   You see, a basic law  of physics is
     that matter,  or information,  that is data,  can never  be destroyed,
     that is, made nothing.  Some theorize that just such a black hole from
     another parallel universe belched out our present universe in which we
     live.  Some even call this even "The Big Bang."  I'm sure you've heard
     of that.  In reality, there was a big bang once upon a time.  When God
     said, "Let there be  light," and there  was light.   Bang!  Perhaps  I
     digress.  Let's get back to who God is or what he is.

          Recently,  I heard  this illustration  from a  scientist  which I
     thought  was apropos.   He wasn't a  Christian but I think  he hit the
     nail  on the  head without even  realizing it.   He  described quantum
     mechanics in this manner.

          Let's reduce  the entire universe  to a  chest board with  all of
     it's  pieces in place on the board ready for a game.  If you have ever
     played  chest against your computer, perhaps  you have experienced the
     same thing a friend of mind did many  years ago.  This was back in the
     days  when  computers, home  computers,  were nothing  more  than game
     machines.   Games were loaded into  the 8K of memory by  plugging in a
     cassette type  like cartridge.  My  friend, one day, loaded  his chest
     game.  He had been playing against the computer for some time  but was
     getting  bored so  he  selected  the highest  level  the software  was
     capable  of playing.   He made his  move and then sat  and watched the
     screen.  The computer,  as primitive as it was in those  days for home
     usage, just sat there.  The screen indicated the computer was working,
     or  thinking, about its move.  He waited  a few more minutes.  Nothing
     changed.  The computer, of course, was attempting to  figure out every
     logical move possible to  win the game.  My friend went  and got a cup
     of  coffee and  returned.   Nothing  had changed.   He  got  up, after
     downing his coffee,  and went and did  some work around the  house and
     yard and came back an hour later.   The computer was still working  on
     it's first move.  He switched the computer off.

          Comparing  this, the  scientist  said,  to  a  quantum  mechanics
     computer, of which  there are none, at this writing, in existence, but
     theoretically  they claim  one is  possible, it  would see  the entire
     universe,  with   all  of   its  visible   and  invisible,   elements,
     collectively.     Such  a  quantum  computer  could  function  totally
     independently on every single aspect  of the chest match and logically
     to the completed  end of the game.  In other words, a quantum computer
     could  never  lose.     It  could  be   thinking,  independently,  and
     simultaneously, on every possible move unlimitlessly  and it would all
     occur at the  exact same time.   In short, the quantum  computer would
     never make a mistake and never be wrong.  Sound like anybody you know?
     Now,  the scientist  said, we  can expand this  concept to  the entire
     universe and to all the parallel universes since quantum mechanics and
     quantum physics.

          About  this  time,  I  began   laughing  as  I  listened  to  the
     explanation of  the quantum physicist.   When we moved  beyond the DOS
     stage  of computer functionality,  multi tasking  has become the norm.
     Most of us  using computers, run various programs all at the same time
     without  even being aware  of their presence.   Sound like anybody you
     know?   If  there  is  a God,  therefore,  theoretically speaking,  of
     course, and  He has created  everything and even  maintains everything
     simultaneously, is should be clear God  is infinite.  Of course,  such
     is exactly the case according to the Bible in Colossians 3:15-17 and I
     quote:   "Who is the image of the  invisible God, the firstborn of all
     16   for in him were  all things created, in  the heavens and upon the
     earth,  things  visible  and  things  invisible,  whether  thrones  or
     dominions  or principalities or  powers; all things  have been created
     through him, and unto him:
     17  and he is before all things, and in him all things consist."

          In  mathematic  quantum  mechanics theory,  therefore,  does  God
     exist?   If so, how  and what is He?   He isn't  a mathematic equation
     because he is infinite.   Therefore, no mathematical calculation could
     compute God.  The  quantum mechanics characteristics of  His existence
     merges theory with fact.  His creation confirms His existence of real.
     What is he?  He is like his creation, that is, man  because He created
     us in His image.  Who is God and of what is He made?

     1 times 1 equals God.  Checkmate!
