IF THERE IS A MOUNTAIN IN YOUR WAY, “QUARK IT”
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)
“The reason words will move a mountain is because mountains are made by words.” –Mark Hankins
The Time Magazine issue of February 19, 1996, had an article that caught my attention. The article, “What’s Hiding in the Quarks,” tells about the discovery of quarks that was made at the giant Tevatron accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago.
Physicists coined the term, “Quarks” in 1994 to describe what they thought were the tiniest, most fundamental building blocks of matter. After further study, the scientists discovered that quarks may not be the most basic units of matter after all!
What are quarks made of? Many scientists are of the opinion that quarks are made of sound waves. I believe that is correct because it confirms what the Bible teaches. In Genesis, the phrase “And God said” is repeated over and over again. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth…For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.” (Psalm 33:6-9)
Confession: Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God. (Hebrews 11:3)
