A clear distinction between the creation of our universe and the intelligent life in it is essential for a proper understanding of the biblical creation narrative. The current research concerning the nature of our universe and its function indicates that must be of specific size and age to support us as an order of intelligence (spirit) in it. The creation of our universe, as stated earlier, was the creation OF time, not the creation IN time. Advanced research and mathematical modeling show that the initial expansion of space-time had to be very rapid and then, in an orderly fashion, settle to the current expansion at the speed of light we observe today. The expansion of space-time releases pure energy. When this energy slows down or cools, to a rate slightly less than the speed of light, it becomes matter in the form of the hydrogen atoms. Then the matter, governed by the law of physics, coalesce to form galaxies, suns, planets, and other structures and bodies visible to us. The current research and observations show that the above process obeys the laws established before the creation of our universe.
The “Final Observer,” the “Absolute Intelligence” – God established, before the creation, a set of essential laws to guide the expansion of our universe and regulate all processes within it. The Creator neither suspends, violates, nor does He manipulate the laws He established before the beginning of His creative activity. There exists a possibility, based on the advanced research that if the Creator were to violate or manipulate a priory established laws, the entire universe of space-time and the humankind in it would cease to exist at that very instant. There would be no possibility for this kind of universe and humanity in it, coming into existence ever again.
The latest research concerning the nature of our universe implies that all possible histories of space-time had transpired in the mind of the Creator before He began His creative activity. He, the Creator, chose the best history for the humankind. Also, all possible knowledge concerning the universe of space-time became a concrete reality in the mind of the Creator before He began His creative activity. All possible thoughts that would ever be thought by order of intelligence called “Man” where known to the Creator before He made the “Man.” Our way of thinking and our logic are inextricably tied to the physical nature of our universe. In just the right time in the history of our universe, based on His foreknowledge, the Creator equipped the planet Earth and placed on it an order of intelligence called “Man” –us that is.
