A Thesis Acknowledgment


Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present
you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion
and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Jude 24, 25

To the Reader:

     The vast volumes of thought reproduced either in literature or in speech, on the screen or in the unexpressed eyeshot, should tell that human beings throughout history have been miserably searching for knowledge that is supposed to forever quench the empty thirst. And, today’s worldview is primarily a product of the partial answers that selfish man is getting out of his ambition to know the unknown. Unfortunately, this paper deals with a lot that is partial, and little, even nothing, just as any human conquest is considered as such when subjected to the eyes of the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent One.

     The story of quantum physics belongs to this same arena. Whatever may be known of it, physicists and mathematicians alike have painstakingly sought, and yet even they have committed mistakes in many of their notions. Indeed, the inspired quote is full of truth as it says,

“The world has had its great teachers, men of giant intellect and extensive research, men whose utterances have stimulated thought and opened to view vast fields of knowledge; and these men have been honored as guides and benefactors of their race; but there is One who stands higher than they. We can trace the line of the world’s teachers as far back as human records extend; but the Light was before them. As the moon and the stars of our solar system shine by the reflected light of the sun, so, as far as their teaching is true, do the world’s great thinkers reflect the rays of the Sun of Righteousness. Every gleam of thought, every flash of the intellect, is from the Light of the world.” {Ed 13.3}

    Let it thus be remembered that it is “only as far as their teaching is true” that men give due honor to the One Eternal, otherwise their works are but vanity. God’s “word is true from the beginning (Ps.119:160);” “to the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (Isa.8:20).” Of a truth, the Word, the true Light (Jn.1:1-14, Ps.119:105) is the standard by which every bit of knowledge is to be tested for verity. Doubtless, with illumined minds we would “count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus (Phil.3:7,8),” the Word, the true Light. That we may thirst for the personal knowledge of the Word above all things; and that, by seeking, we may see through the unseen the Light of the knowledge of the glory of the One Author of it all – is the prayer of one who desires you to give all and do all

To His glory.
