Atoms from Creation to Disintegration
Atoms from Creation to Disintegration
By Atif Himadeh
The question Man might ask in our present advanced age, known as the Atom age: What is atom? One Greek philosopher could answer the above question. He would say: “Atom is the smallest particle or portion of a mass one might get. To this description those philosophers might add by saying, “this particle can’t be divided into other smaller parts.” The Greek philosophers believed that atom is indivisible. But this belief has been proved wrong in our present age by Einstein. He proved that atom can be disintegrated based on a known and tested theory. You might ask me, “How could I know that what you are saying is true since I am not very well educated?” On the bases of this theory, the atomic bomb was made. Who does not know about the atom bomb? Is there any man on earth with reading, hearing and seeing abilities can possibly not know about the atomic bomb?
As it is known, the atomic bomb is built on the fact that atom can be divided and that part of the major mass that formulates the atom can be disintegrated.
Following is the rule regarding this theory:
Energy = mass x speed of light x speed of light (E = m x c x c)
According to the above equation, it is possible for energy to be transformed into mass and vise versa. Man, on his part, was able to transform mass into energy. In other words, Man succeeded to split the atom and get that part in which energy was stored. From where did this energy come? Who put it in the mass?
Let us answer the first question: “Where did this energy come from?” since mass can only be disintegrated on the basis of Einstein theory which says, “The disintegrated mass is transformed into energy.” Based on this same theory, no mass can exist apart from energy. Therefore, we all know that our universe is full with this mass. If we say that mass has been in existence since infinity this could not be possible. As a matter of fact, the sun alone looses from its mass 4.2 million tons per second. This means that about 4.2 million tons of mass disintegrates every second and is transformed into energy. These rays, when reaching the earth, they are stored in the plants in the form of complex compounds. In this essay we will only mention that the plants store these rays in the hydrocarbon complex like wood and sugar etc. If the sun has really been since infinity then we should find out how much mass has it lost during this infinite span of time.
We already know that any number multiplied with an infinite number of years will become infinite. To say the universe has no beginning make the mass infinite and this is impossible. So there must be a beginning point for the universe. Anyone who says that there is no beginning for the universe he is surely illiterate and knows nothing about the atomic age science. As a result, you should not even listen to them whoever they may be. Just consider them as educated but they are illiterates living in the 20th century.
Now let us go back to our former question after we have come to the main conclusion that the universe has a starting point. Let us ask, “Who has founded this universe?” If we reiterate what the illiterate has to say about the creation of the universe- that the universe was created by itself - then even the lunatic would have laughed at us. Just think, how can something that does not exist bring into existence the sporadic mass that fills this vast universe? If one of the adolescent philosophers come and say to us that the stars, the sun, and the moon were created by some sort of a small amount of gas that took to expand and multiply, then the Thermodynamics’ theory and those of Einstein and others would have laughed at this. Actually, we have no time to look into these different theories. We will only say Gas is governed by a proven theory which is P1*V1/T1=P2*V2/T2. In another words when the volume increase the pressure decrease. We can say the mass of the gas will remain the same. All those who dare to claim that when gas expands it multiplies and they imply that mass was created contradict the theory E=m*c*c.
Lastly, science has introduced another theory that cannot be proved. It claims that the universe was created as a result of an explosion they called it the Bang theory. It was not proved from where this thing that was exploded came from. Here we see how science contradicts itself. The former theory contradicts another one that is: “Energy = mass X light speed square.”
If the Bang Theory is correct then the Energy theory is wrong. But since the latest theory has not been proven then the Bang theory is wrong.
At this point, we will refrain to list down the different theories by the philosophers for they have become a mockery in the face of Modern Science. Therefore, we should be aware that the mass of the atoms cannot exist without energy. Now the question is: “How did this great and immense energy come from?” Could this be a philosopher’s or genius’s energy? If it is so, then why shouldn’t he transform it into a very costly material to meet his financial needs? But if we say it is an angel’s energy? Who is this Angel?
Here we have assumed that the energy is either from a human or from an angel. Undoubtedly, there should be someone who activates this energy. Then, if we cannot assume the existence of an angel because we need first to determine who created him, in like manner, we cannot assume the existence of a human being because we should also need to know who created him.
All the above problems and dilemmas were solved by God. He said, “In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.” God did not want to prove that He exists because there is no doubt about it. He rather wants to make known to us what He made or created. He does not want to convince us about what He made because He knows that He, Himself, made the “heavens and the earth” The word ‘create’ means “bring into being”. If we claim the existence of God, who owns the stores of the infinite power, wisdom and knowledge, then we have no problem believing that God transformed part of this infinite energy into mass when He created the heavens and the earth. God is not limited by the laws of nature. But it is in His power to lay down laws for nature to follow and to control it accordingly. Based on the above, God has the power to transform energy into mass according to a theory Einstein discovered. God used Einstein’s theory since the creation of the universe. What Einstein did was to discover its existence. But he wasn’t the first to discover this theory. You might ask, “Who then has discovered the disintegration of the atom into energy and fire?
The first one to record the disintegration of the atom into energy was the Apostle Peter. This was recorded in the Bible by the Apostle Peter around 66 A.D. that is to say 1850 years before Einstein discovered the theory.
“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 2 Peter 10 “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
In the Greek language the word ‘melt’ means “dissolving of atoms”. For your information, the Apostle Peter lived at a time when people did not believe that atom could be divided into protons, neutrons and electrons. Everybody used to believe in the indivisibility of the atom, whereas, the Apostle Peter, who was neither taught by philosophers nor by Doctors, seems to know far more than the scientists and philosophers altogether. Peter was taught by God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. As a result, he discerned what wasn’t apprehended by any mortal at that time but by God alone. He comprehended that atoms (elements) disintegrate into energy that is melt with fervent heat. He said, “wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?”
Needles to mention, the Apostle Peter was neither a scientist nor a philosopher. He was rather a mere fisherman with limited scientific knowledge. And since God owns the stores of knowledge, He could impart a portion of it to anyone He wishes. Accordingly, a portion of this divine wisdom was granted to the apostles and disciples who believed in Jesus Christ. Until now, God is still lavishing this divine wisdom upon Man. One of God’s promises in the last days is to increase knowledge to mankind. He has indeed carried out His promise.
Today, as we know, Man can’t read all that God has recorded. As a matter of fact, if someone wants to read all what was said by one preacher, like Spurgeon, it will take him about three years of incessant day and night reading.
Thousands of writers have wrote millions of books on all subjects and in about every language. One might even get lost in reading these subjects and topics. But the most important subject is about God’s wisdom in creation and in the disintegration of mass. God first created the heavens and earth. Then He created Adam and Eve and placed them in Paradise. Adam sinned and as a result God expelled Adam and Eve from the garden of Eden.
Do you think that God is ignorant in not knowing that Satan will cause Adam to fall into sin? Not at all, the Omnipotent God knew even before the creation of the heavens and the earth, angels and Man, that Satan will test Adam and will cause him to fall into sin. For this reason, God prepared redemption even before the creation of the world and before He created angels and Man. In fact, God did not create devils. But He rather created angels who rebelled against Him through the leadership of Lucifer, the devil. These fallen angels have become the devils, evil spirits, and fiends. These are different names for one thing, the devil.
Following are a number of verses from 1Peter 1: 18- 20: “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” These verses assure that God prepared for Man the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross even before the foundation of the world. He, therefore, prepared the way of salvation for Man prior to falling into sin. Accordingly, no one can stand before God and accuse Him by saying: “O God! You are not just.” This is because the remission of sins was prepared by God before the creation of Man. For the same reason, Man cannot stand before God and accuse Him, “O God! You are not merciful.” For God has sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross to have mercy on all those who believe in Him. For the Bible says in John 3: 16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This means that God prepared salvation for Man even before He created the sun or the moon, the planets or the stars and even before angels and the angels that fall. He prepared salvation before there was any man or animal or plants on earth. Before all these, that is before the foundation of the world, God prepared redemption. This redemption is based neither on works nor on position and not even on wealth whether it is gold or silver. It is rather based on the shed blood of Jesus on the cross- as the blood of an innocent is shed. This blood is a blood without blemish or flaw. It is the blood of Christ. The Apostle Paul says in Ephesians 1: 7, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
The Apostle John said in 1John 1: 7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Even before the existence of the atom, God found forgiveness through the shed blood of Christ on the cross. Believe before the atoms of this universe disintegrates into fervent heat. Believe in Jesus because, as a matter of fact, this entire universe will disintegrate into energy that will be “the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:” Rev. 21:8 The people, who failed to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, will suffer. Jesus says before this universe dissolves, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11: 28
Would you come to Jesus before it is too late and believe in Him to grant you eternal life. He said in John 11: 25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.“
Today atomic and nuclear bombs are being made in larger quantities and are being stored to be used in immense numbers. You never know when the button will go off and the spark will lit. Once this takes place woe will come upon the inhabitants of the world. Would like to believe in Jesus today? Today is a day of salvation. Tomorrow will be the day of remorse. Would you then take advantage of the time you have. The door is still wide open. Believe to have eternal life. Nobody including your father or mother or brother can stand before God to give an account on your sins. You alone will stand before God to give an account for each and every sin you have ever committed. Please believe in Jesus today and not tomorrow.
