Improved measurements of how much the laws of physics change affirm the Bible’s description of the cosmos. Various biblical passages (e.g., Jeremiah 33:25) describe a universe with constant laws of physics. Using data from sources that emit a particular form of x-ray and gamma-ray radiation, an Indiana physicist placed very tight constraints on how much the laws of physics can change as one moves though space-time. Some of the improved constraints are 14 orders of magnitude tighter than previous estimates. As scientists’ understanding of the cosmos grows, support for RTB’s cosmic creation model, in which a supernatural Creator has designed the universe to support life, also grows.
