Christopher Search: In the “Mathematical Glory” of the Universe, the Physicist Discovered the “Truly Divine”


How did this slip through? John Horgan with Scientific American interviewed a physicist colleague, Christopher Search.

The physicist is appealingly direct in rejecting the atheism associated with Stephen Hawking and other venerated names in the field.

More than that, he says it was physics that brought him to a recognition of the “truly divine” in the universe:

“Over the years my view of physics has evolved significantly. I no longer believe that physics offers all of the answers. It can’t explain why the universe exists or why we are even here.

It does though paint a very beautiful and intricate picture of the how the universe works. I actually feel sorry for people that do not understand the laws of physics in their full mathematical glory because they are missing out on something that is truly divine.

The beautiful interlocking connectedness of the laws of physics indicates to me how finely tuned and remarkable the universe is, which for me proves that the universe is more than random chance.

Ironically, it was by studying physics that I stopped being an atheist because physics is so perfect and harmonious that it had to come from something.

After years of reflecting, I simply could not accept that the universe is random chance as the anthropic principle implies…..
