Biblical Miracles and Quantum Physics

A Tract Book

When I was a freshman in college at Rockhurst College (now Rockhurst

University) I had a course called “Christ in the Scriptures.” It was a good class.

There was this cute little blond from the Kansas side who drove this cute little

sports car who sat right behind me. I didn’t get anywhere with the cute little

blond, who by the way was Protestant, but I did get somewhere with the class.

Father Carl Dehne, S.J., taught us about “redaction criticism” of the Bible. That is,

interpretation of the Bible through the use of “demythologizing” hermeneutics. In

other words, were we basically taught, at least to some extent that although Faith

may make us believe in the Miracles of the Bible, when we are “scientific”

scripture scholars, we will not.

The toughest thing for me was the discussion of the gospel of Luke. Father

Dehne told us about the “infancy narrative” which was found only in Luke.

Matthew refers briefly to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, of Judea, and Matthew

1
also refers to the three wise men or magi. Neither the gospels of Mark, nor John,

refer to the birth of Jesus. Now, why do I point this out. Well, the implication of

the whole thing, whether explicit or not, was that there was really no virgin birth,

nor flight to Egypt, etc., etc., etc. In other word no Christmas.

So, I went home to Lincoln, Nebraska for “Christmas” break, in a little bit of

a quandry. Was Christmas really real? Did the miracles in the Bible really take

place, or was it all hyperbole? Was there a virgin birth or was Jesus an illegitimate

child? Well, I went to Christmas Mass, probably Midnight Mass, and I was almost

convinced that the miracles were true,...somehow, someway. Then, I sat up late,

like I usually did and stared into the Christmas lights on the Christmas tree, and the

homemade cretch scene, with Jesus in the manger with the three wise men, Mary,

Joseph, the shepherds, and the sheep, and meditated. Then somehow I knew that it

was ture, intuitively. I had not lost my Faith with the Jesuits, but had strengthened

it, somehow.

Now, many years later, as an adult in my forties, I am revisiting the issue. Was

there a virgin birth of Jesus? Did Moses really part the Red Sea to allow the

Hebrews to escape from the Egyptians? Did Daniel really survive in the lion’s

den? Did Jesus really heal blind and lame people? Did Jesus really raise Lazarus

from the dead? Did Jesus really rise from the dead after his crucifixtion? Well,

2
Faith told me yes, and even more, Intuition told me yes, but what about modern

science? What does science have to say?

Well, modern science, in my view, using Quantum Physics, definitely supports

the idea of miracles happening. In the world of science, using Quantum Physics,

miracles happen “scientifically.” Quantum Physics says that at a subatomic level

all of material reality is supported not by atoms, but by subatomic particles, one of

which is the quanta. The quanta particle is a chameleon. Meaning changes the

valence and function of a quanta particle. Mind over matter is literally true.

The double slit experiment of Quantum Physics shows a dispersion pattern

that is impossible given ordinary newtownian physics assumptions. Moreover,

Bell’s Theorem proves non-local communication at a distance between atoms, thus

making the idea of “psychic channeling” scientifically possible. Additionally, if

non-local communication is possible, and if subatomic particles can change

valence or function, then it is possible that meaning, or prayer, can change

subatomic particles non-locally at a distance. And, if meaning or prayer can

change subatomic particles non-locally at a distance, then it is certainly possible

that atoms and molecules, and even cells, which are ultimately composes of

subatomic particles, could also change.

A virgin birth is thus scientifically possible, as well as moving large amounts

3
of water, and healing the blind and the lame. The foregoing is confirmed by the

fact that modern scientific prayer studies show that prayer provides a statistically

significant difference in the healing of heart attack patients. Quantum particles,

called quanta, and the Quantum Field that they compose, can change matter

physically. Underlying material physical reality is not atomic separateness, but

instead the Quantum Field, masking itself as various subatomic particles.

Thus, miracles are not only scientifically possible, but probable. Not only

are the modern “scientific” miracles of the microwave oven, the television, the

computer, the gameboy, the playstation, the dvd player made possible with

Quantum Physics, so too are the “scientific” miracles of the virgin birth of Jesus,

Jesus healing the blind and the lame, the parting of the Red Sea, and Daniel and the

lion’s den.
