Mathematics’ Correspondence with Nature Points to God

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Scientific advance continues to support the Christian worldview by establishing the remarkable correspondence between mathematics and nature. From a biblical perspective, nature reflects God’s attributes—such as His immutability and purpose. Thus, one expects to find orderly principles, such as the mathematical rules scientists use, governing the universe. Scientists recently discovered that the physical principles describing some forms of magnetism are mathematically identical to those governing the onset of tropical downpours. While this correspondence is remarkable from a naturalistic perspective, it is anticipated in a Christian worldview.
