Question For The Week: ‘If There Is A God, Is She Bound By The Laws Of Physics?’

The BBC Future programme ‘The Feature’ ties to answer the most elemental question of all time: “If there is a God, would they ( or she or he) be bound by the law of physics:

The BBC author writes: “The idea that God might be “bound” by the laws of physics – which also govern chemistry and biology and thus the limits of medical science – is an interesting one to explore.

If God wasn’t able to break the laws of physics, she arguably wouldn’t be as powerful as you’d expect a supreme being to be. But if she could, why haven’t we seen any evidence of the laws of physics ever being broken in the Universe?

To tackle the question, let’s break it down a bit.

First, can God travel faster than light? Let’s just take the question at face value. Light travels at an approximate speed of 3 x 10 to the power of 5 kilometres every second, or 186,000 miles per second (299,500km/s).

“We learn at school that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light – not even the USS Enterprise in Star Trek when its dilithium crystals are set to max.
