“I still believed in God (I am now an atheist) when I first heard the first question raised by Einstein in a discussion and was amazed at its elegance and depth: ‘If there is a God who created the universe and all. The laws physics does God follow God’s own law. Alternatively, can God transcend His own laws, such as traveling faster than the speed of light and being able to be in two different places at the same time? ‘Can the answer help us to prove the existence of a prove God or is it where scientific empiricism intersects religious beliefs with a true answer? “David Frost, 67, Los Angeles.
I was in lockdown when I got this question and was instantly excited. No wonder about time – tragic events as if epidemics often make us question the existence of God: if there is a merciful God, why is such a catastrophe happening? Therefore, the idea that phys could be “bound” by the laws of physics – which governs the boundaries of chemistry and biology and thus medical science – was interesting. If the phys god could not break the laws of physics, he would not be as powerful as you would expect the Absolute Being to be. However, if he could, why have not we seen any evidence of physics breaking the law in the universe?
But is it true? A few years ago, a group of physicists commented that a particle called tachyons traveled at light speeds. Fortunately, their existence as true particles considered highly unlikely. If they exist, they will have an imaginary mass and distort the fabric of space and time – leading to a violation of functionality (and perhaps a headache for God). So far, it seems, no object has observed that can travel faster than the speed of light. It does not say anything about God Himself. It only reinforces the knowledge that light actually travels very fast.
Things get even more interesting when you consider that you have traveled the light path from the beginning. Holding a traditional theatrical Big Bang cosmic science and a light speed of 3 x 105 km / s, we can calculate that light has traveled about 1024 km in the 13.8 billion years of the universe’s existence.
The universe is expanding at a rate of about 70km / s per MPC (one MPC = 1 Megaparsec ~ 30 million kilometers), so the current estimate is that the distance to the ends of the universe is 46 billion light years. As time goes on amount of space increases and the light has to travel a longer way to reach us.
There is a much larger universe than we can see, but the most distant object we have seen is a galaxy observed by the Hubble Space Telescope, GN-Z11. It is about 1023 km or 13.4 billion light years away, which means that light reaches the galaxy took 13.4 billion years. However, when the light was “off”, the galaxy was about 3 billion light-years away from our galaxy, the Milky Way.
We cannot observe or see the entire universe that has grown since the Big Bang because there is insufficient time for light from the first fraction of a second to reach us. Some argue that we cannot be so sure that the laws of physics can be broken in other cosmic regions – perhaps these are just local, accidental laws. In addition, it takes us to something bigger than the universe.
