Tiny Notes following few pages of Hawking's History of Time
Quick Draft to save free time slice
The following tiny notes have been always with me since I started out studying modern physics upon my own when I was yet in my late junior high school days.
However I find it interesting now to show them through following few pages in the most prominent atheist Stephen Hawking's 'Brief History of Time.'
(Paging references taken from this electronic version)
In the context of explaining the concept of non-unique rest, Hawking called Newton's belief in absolute God irrational.
The concept of relative rest is the vigorous idea of the existence of Constant God only constant in changing world of beings.
All beings yearn to be fixed related to Him!
He wrogly imputed suggesting the existence of Ether to the principle of non-unique rest of Newton.
Actually this makes nonsense, rather they thought of the existence of Ether to justify the wave-fashion propagation of Light. Assumed Ether was the medium of the wave to them.
The idea of Ether is related to holding the idea of absolute time rather than the idea of the non-absolute space.
Hawking himself will allude to this fact in p. 12.
p. 12 (ch.2)
The unification of the laws of physics was extended to its utmost level when Einstein's Relativity unified the physical laws
(as related to all observers) by adding up into the list of unified laws 'wave movement' and 'fixed velocity of light.' Before Relativity Theory the unification of physical laws regardless of the observer was limited to Newton's 'Mechanic Movement of Rigid Bodies.'
Also discovering the conversion of mass into energy and vice versa, as a consequent result of the theory, is remarked regarding the unified law of physics.
The idea if unification of the governing law of the world agrees perfectly with its being created by one creator who declared how much he wants to gather everyone on one (Joh17: 23)!
It will be even more interesting to think of the selected people who go well with God's will made perfect in one, while those to go against God's commandments are thrown outside in a 'black hole' (Mat8:12, 22:13,25: 30).
The last two paragraphs brilliantly simply the progress from non-absolute spae\ absolute time Newtonian physics to all non-absolute time-space relative world of Einstein.
According to the latter, different observers of a light ray journey disagree on time and space that journey of observed light took, yet they agree on the speed of light relative to them.
It is a marvelous fact that both time and space are matters of disagreement only to leave the speed of light constant relative to all observers in different physical situations, be it place or speed. So ONLY when all come to obsering linght they find everything is absolute and they disagree on everything only to agree on the speed of LIGHT. It is like science at its modern physics stage finally read and believed ni the scripture in which Jesus proclaims that He is the LIGHT of the world.
The relativity is now beyond thought or imagination.
In General Relativity, time and space are not only non-absolute to different observers, but also dynamic. They react to events that would take place within.
So the whole creation including the most general set of reference (namely, time-space) is neither absolute nor constant.
Still there is something constant, the fact that I begin with noting that the law that describes the relation between relative beings is constant, to be promoted in its being constant by the discovery of the constant speed of light. Now having constant speed of light that is the final result proved through a thorough applying constant physical law, we could straightforwardly think of a world that yearns to enjoy its fixation and rest in that constant law that shines with constant light.
p. 72 (ch9)
Unto here you come and here is where your waves halt.
Hawking gives a mention to what he called 'imaginary time,' meaning going back in time as he admits it is imaginary
(The expression Hawking gives is verbally inaccurate. What he calls 'imaginary time' is not an independent dimension of time, but movement direction through it.)
So no return in time! No one could go back and forth in time, as is the case with space. Not only that but also no action can change one's position in time even forward.
Time goes on, regardless of being absolute or relative, while the whole of the universe receives it with no possibility of changing its position in time.
This embodies the faith in an omnipotent God with inevitable purposes, where everything yields to Him.
Is such a scientific fashion for or against the belief in God who is manifest in sending his son to shine as the light of the world?
