You're without your dancing and you never let's welcome back. I'm talking to doctor Thomas Sheehan, the book is every win God symmetry and time. Let's talk about time. Time is a heavy subject. I was at a C. S. Lewis conference in Oxford and Cambridge, oh, I don't know, 2005, doctor Sir John polkinghorne was there. They're talking about time. And it's so fascinating. It's so fascinating. The idea of the dimensionality of time and space, things that are really just hard to take in, but nonetheless, real, because we serve an amazing God. So let's talk about the nature of time. Let's talk about what you were going to refer to with the idea of Windows life begin yeah, there are a lot of interesting things about time that we need to wake up to and are gradually waking up to. It is the case that we have shown that it is possible to stop biological time. The case of frozen embryos is exactly that. Time does not pass for a single cell that is frozen and kept at an extremely low temperature close to absolute zero. And then you have people wear through in vitro fertilization and so forth, a child is born in 1996 and his twin, his sibling is born in 2012, and there are all these years apart, but they're still the same real. Just to be clear, you're talking about the idea of if they're too embryos from a mother and one of them is implanted in her uterus and is born. But the other one stays in the state of suspended animation as a frozen embryo, you and I know that's a human being. And it's a point that embryo should be implanted in a uterus and be born, but they can be identical twins separated not by 7 minutes, but by 7 years or more, that's effectively what a clone is, right? It's a similar, very similar thing. But so why do you say that time stops? I don't really get that. You mean time stops for them? Are we speaking about the elementary? Time is essentially interrupted. There is a certain biological time, a rhythm in the way living cells living beings living humans, their life flows on at a certain rate of time. And when you lower the temperature down to almost absolute zero, you basically shut off that biological progression entirely and thereby have shut off biological time. And I don't want to go into great depth about that except to observe that our philosophy and theology hasn't caught up with the technology yet. It's something as technologically possible, but our understanding of it from a philosophical and theological point of view is still just beginning and is very limited. When did you come to faith in life? With a name like Thomas Sheen, I'm guessing you were raised as a Catholic, am I right? That is correct. Yeah, and as I grew up and met various challenges, not the least of which were the other guys in the fraternity around MIT. I began to look carefully at some of the aspects of philosophy and theology that underlie faith. And in every case, there was a clear answer, and it became clear and one after another, I was comfortable with understanding things like the work of Saint Thomas, the work of St. Augustine, the work of the Old Testament, all of these things made good sense to me and I put it together in a way that was comfortable and at the same time I was learning science, which points again and again towards God. Science really does point very strongly in the direction of a universe created by a transcendent being. But what I want to talk. No, no, good. Well,.

"His way through it. Now, Gerald Schroeder, the book you're referring to is called genesis and the Big Bang. I remember reading that, I don't know if it was 1991 or something like that. And just being astonished because he's not a Christian believer, but he's a profoundly devout orthodox Jewish believer. And we had him at Socrates in the city, a number of years ago, but the idea that he's able to reconcile these two things is astonishing. And I guess from your point of view, he has, in fact, done it. Well, the real gift from God that is given to all of us at one level or another is to be able to reconcile our faith with our science. And that is an absolute blessing and Schroeder's a great example of somebody who has used that in the best possible way. It's amazing. And it doesn't mean that we won't always have questions. I think that those of us who are believers in the scripture, we still have questions. We simply trust that the Bible gets it all right, and that we haven't figured it out yet. We haven't figured out the details yet. The details of the flood, the details of that. There are things that we're still looking into. One of the places people get in trouble with is the concept of Adam and Eve and I've heard different theories on that as well. And I just say, listen, I know the scripture is right. And some of these things we're still in the process of discovering. It seems to me. That is true. There's so many things that if we will remember that God was trying to inspire profits who were limited and their limitations received this inspiration in a way that was not perfect, but was incomplete. And furthermore, the translators over the age that brings us to us to us in Modern English, they didn't get it perfectly right either, and there's an awful lot to learn. So the Bible is the best way to learn about as Galileo said 400 years ago, the Bible teaches us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go. And yet we went, I just want to be really clear. It doesn't mean that these are, you know, Galileo or whoever was talking about the two books, the book of scriptural revelation, and then the universe, but we don't want to nature, but we don't want to imply that the Bible is limited in the sense that it's limited on one conceptually it's limited because it is a book, and it because it doesn't need to say everything. It doesn't need to refer to the dinosaurs. But it doesn't, but it's neither is it wrong. There's nothing in it that we can point to and say, well, he got this wrong or he got this wrong. Now when it comes to translations, of course, people have got stuff flat out wrong and have led us down long paths, wild goose chases that sometimes for centuries because of that. Folks, I'm talking to the author of every win, a brand new book every when God, symmetry and time, his name is Thomas Sheehan, when we come back, we will have more of the conversation.

"P.m. investments dot com. Folks, I'm talking to Thomas Sheen. What's that Greek? Thomas Sheehan, PhD. He's the author of a book every win. God symmetry in time. Thomas Sheen, when my book came out is atheism dead. A lot of people have emailed me because they have a young earth view of things. They say that they believe the universe and everything was created only a few thousand years ago. I don't have a dog in the fight. My attitude is whatever is, is, and whatever scripture says is true. But a lot of people who have as high a view of scripture as I do yourself and Hugh Ross and others believe in the Big Bang. What is your most basic objection to the idea of the young earth concept? Well, the scientific evidence really is very, very good that it has existed for a very long time. I look at the first part of genesis as wonderful expression in Hebrew poetry of the fact that God was trying to communicate something to people, but whoever was on the receiving end couldn't get it all straight. And they did the very best they could and they've given us the best they could in circumstances where they don't understand fully all that God wants to say. Let me tell you about a certain 20th century guy. Well, actually, he's still alive. It's all from Brooklyn named Jerry schroder, grew up and went to MIT. I know Gerald Schroeder, he's in Israel. He's a genius. Go ahead. Well, he came to the table with a devout orthodox Jewish religion following a certain rabbi named knock commodities not to be confused with maimonides who were more familiar with. And he said, the universe was created in 6 days and that's what my faith says. Well, in the meantime, he's got a PhD in physics from MIT, so he knows what his science is. 13.8 billion years. And Schroeder said it's up to me to resolve what appears to be a discrepancy between my face and my science. So he did. And what Schroeder said is the answer is both. Because the first chapter of genesis, according to Schroeder, was written by from the perspective of someone who is writing the expansion of the universe, and is therefore moving at huge velocities. The first day corresponds to about 7 and a half billion years. Second day, about 4 billion years, third day, too. And this original idea by Schroeder actually resolves the difficulty between 6 day creationism and the physics that shows 13.8 billion years. I think Schroeder's a genius. And he did it because he was motivated by the fact that both his religion and his science must be true. And he brought that to the table and he worked.

"That's interesting. I've not heard it put that way, but I mean, I see that secular people do that. In other words, if you say, I mean, everybody who rejected the Big Bang, you know, Fred hoyle and company. They were so bothered by the idea of the universe being created out of nothing. They couldn't bear it because it implied certain disturbing things. It implied a creator and so they basically said, no, no, no, no, no. We believe the universe always existed. And we're going to work hard to try to prove that, of course, they failed. And I always find it funny. I write in the first chapter of my book as atheism debt I write about Einstein being disturbed by his equations that show the universe is expanding and just thinking, this is going to make me sound religious. I've got to bury that with the cosmological constant and so on and so forth. But it's just so interesting how scientists were wedded to the idea of a universe that had always existed because if you find a universe that didn't always exist, it does imply that there's a God outside space and time. That is absolutely correct. And we finally done that. The world of physics has discovered that they use the term past limited fancy way to say that you don't go back forever. There was a starting point. And that is incredibly important aspect of understanding the relationship between time and our universe, which is linked to this creation by God. And to many scientists who dearly hold to atheism, it's really embarrassing and awkward for them. And the way you get out of it is you pretend there is such a thing as a multiverse. Okay, now that's where it gets funny. That's where it gets funny because you have atheists often accuse Christians, Bible believers of making up these crazy myths and stuff. And ironically, of course, what we're doing is tracking with science, what they have found is that science ironically is embarrassing them, and so they are now going beyond science. Can you just irony and creating this fiction of a multiverse, explain the multiverse to my audience if you could? Well, the idea is that little miniature teensy weensy additional universes bubble up all the time. Just like a frothing, like the beer that the head on a glass of beer or something like that, that these universes are coming into existence all the time and every one of them expands just like ours and has all these abnormal conditions and so forth. And by the way, we are the ones who just got lucky to be in the universe that were at worked out right. Okay. That's a hilarious, though. I mean, just to put in layman's terms, I mean, ladies and gentlemen, imagine somebody says, everything's perfectly calibrated in this universe. So perfectly calibrated that appoints to God, and somebody says, well, I don't like that idea. So let's invent the idea that there's an infinity of universes and we just happen to be in the one that looks perfectly calibrated. Sheer luck. And that takes more faith times quintillion than believing in the God of the Bible. I mean, it's preposterous, but this is what secular scientists have been driven to by science. Oh, you're absolutely right, Eric, you're way ahead of me on this. It's absolutely true that what has happened is they have been backed into a corner because science points so strongly to a singular origin of one universe by a transcendent being God who created it. And when you reach for the multiverse idea, you wind up very quickly at having an infinity of universes. Okay, an infinity of universes is something that people are not really willing to accept because they don't understand the concept of infinity. When you do have infinity, you wind up with universes where there are clones of us. You and me and everybody else on the planet. And there's multiple copies of you, not just multiple. There's an infinite number of copies of you. And this year, the conditions of the word infinity, a mathematical term that people don't understand. The multiverse people wish there could be only 3714 universes or some lesser number. Ten to the 500th is a number called the landscape, which has been bandied about. But what the people who have thought about the physics of this very carefully have shown is that you have to have an infinite number of universes and that brings you a lot of really bad effects. So one of my patterns to think about this anymore because it hurts my head. Actually, seriously, this stuff is so you've gone out there on this and you've thought this through. And I'm just wondering what you were saying, but I have a question. Go ahead. Well, one of my chapters is called the mistake of the multiverse, and I explain why it is mistaken. I mean, there's just so many terrible things that we are unwilling to imagine. If there's an infinite number of universes, then the Holocaust occurs an infinite number of times. Hitler wins World War II, Stalin dominates the world. You have these terrible, terrible results in some of the alternate universes. And so you find yourself unwilling to accept the idea that there's an infinite number of universes and therefore the physics, the logic, and the science points you right back down to one universe. And when you say, where did this one universe come from, we say was considerable argumental strength and power that God created it. It's extraordinary stuff, folks. The book is every win. God symmetry in time and Thomas Sheehan is my guest don't go away. I ain't ready for no family time. Nobody's gonna hurt me..

"Dot com. Hey folks, we're talking about time. We're talking about space. We're talking about God. We're talking about symmetry. We're talking to the author of every win. Is that a great word every when? God symmetry in time, the author is Thomas Sheehan. Thomas Sheen, we were just talking about the concept that we all take for granted that everything is orderly. The universe is orderly. It makes sense. But you're saying it needn't be that that alone is something that ought to be remarkable to us if we look into it. Exactly so, yes. And it was God who created that order that logic, that symmetry, and he created space and time. And all the things we've taken for granted, we have to recognize our created entities. So when you say God created space and time, you go along with the idea, which I do, that the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, was the creation, not just of all of space. But of time itself, exactly so, yes, yes. It's hard to comprehend, because I think people think that the creation 13.8 billion years ago means that the universe was filled up with stuff. And we're saying, no, no, no, no, no. The universe itself space itself did not exist. That's practically impossible. I mean, it is impossible for us to get our heads around that. But the bottom line is, God, who's outside space and time created space and time almost 14 billion years ago. And here we are. That's right. And the point that you are bringing up is that these things are almost impossible for us to get our heads around. And that's a real obstacle. And because we can't do so, we assume that God can't do so either. And that's a huge mistake. We have for many thousands of years believed that God exists within time that God is subordinate to time that God is inferior to time. And as the ten commandments say thou shalt not have a false God before me, mankind has for our entire civilization assumed the superiority of time and thus has put a false guy before God. Well, actually, it's only the Bible. And this is another reason to believe the Bible and the God of the Bible, only the Bible presents a God who is outside of time and space. And it's actually chilling when you think that something much of which was written 35 centuries ago by Moses that that is talking about a world that now all these years later now we understand that, you know, God is outside time and space. You think, but how is it possible for these first people in Mycenaean times in the bronze era. And just a million years before, I mean, a thousand years before classical Greece, that they had this concept, but all the other civilizations of the world don't have that concept. They have a concept where the gods are pretty much like us, arguing, capricious, inside time and space. Well, that was the enormous contribution of Judaism to civilization to say there is one God. The Romans, the Greeks and so forth, they have this whole bunch of gods and they were all mistaken because there is one God. And we owe it to our Hebrew ancestors of 5000 years or so who have discovered that in their time, but they need by getting it from God himself. That's just it. And the inspiration that God gives the mankind will always remain a mystery to all of us. There are contemporary mystics, there are people we don't understand. There are people who have brilliant insights and we don't understand them because the communication problem is so severe. We communicate in language. We have a thought structure and we're stuck with it. And we live that way. So what we're going to get is not the full message from God, but a limited filtered message. And I'm asking people to realize that what we see is filtered. I'm not saying that I know what the original is. By no means. But I do say that we must recognize our own limitations and stop imposing those limitations upon God..

And the inspiration that God gives the mankind will always remain a mystery to all of us. There are contemporary mystics, there are people we don't understand. There are people who have brilliant insights and we don't understand them because the communication problem is so severe. We communicate in language. We have a thought structure and we're stuck with it. And we live that way. So what we're going to get is not the full message from God, but a limited filtered message. And I'm asking people to realize that what we see is filtered. I'm not saying that I know what the original is. By no means. But I do say that we must recognize our own limitations and stop imposing those limitations upon God. That's interesting. I've not heard it put that way, but I mean, I see that secular people do that. In other words, if you say, I mean, everybody who rejected the Big Bang, you know, Fred hoyle and company. They were so bothered by the idea of the universe being created out of nothing. They couldn't bear it because it implied certain disturbing things. It implied a creator and so they basically said, no, no, no, no. We believe the universe always existed. And we're going to work hard to try to prove that, of course, they failed. And I always find it funny. I write in the first chapter of my book as atheism dead. I write about Einstein being disturbed by his equations that show the universe's expanding and just thinking like, this is going to make me sound religious. I've got to bury that with the cosmological constant and so on and so forth. But it's just so interesting how scientists were wedded to the idea of a universe that had always existed because if you find a universe that didn't always exist, it does imply that there's a God outside space and time. That is absolutely correct. And we finally done that. The world of physics has discovered that they use the term past limited fancy way to say that you don't go back forever. There was a starting point. And that is incredibly important aspect of understanding the relationship between time and our universe, which is linked to this creation by God. And to many scientists who dearly hold to atheism, it's really embarrassing and awkward for them. And the way you get out of it is you pretend there is such a thing as a multiverse. Okay, now that's where it gets funny. That's where it gets funny because you have atheists often accuse Christians, Bible believers of making up these crazy myths and stuff. And ironically, of course, what we're doing is tracking with science, what they have found is that science ironically is embarrassing them, and so they are now going beyond science. And creating this fiction of a multiverse explain the multiverse to my audience if you could. Well, the idea is that little miniature teensy weensy additional universes bubble up all the time. Just like a frothing, like the beer, the head on a glass of beer or something like that, that these universes are coming into existence all the time and every one of them expands just like ours and has all these abnormal conditions and so forth. And by the way, we are the ones who just got lucky to be in the universe that were at worked out.

"With it. Exactly right Eric, you catch on really, really well. You've known this stuff for many years before. I wrote any of it down, but you have exactly on the right track. Well, the issue of symmetry, you know, when you say for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. What is that? The first law of thermodynamics, I don't even remember what it is. But no, that's Newton's third law. Whatever. Newton's third law, I was close. I was just too laws off. But the point is that that there is this order and most people, myself included, are tempted to take it for granted. You'd be like, well, of course, you know, of course, everything is ordered. I mean, what else would it be? But what you're saying is it needn't be ordered. We need to marvel at a God who gave it this order and understand that there's something about the order that's intentional on God's part. That's a big idea. We'll be right back. We're talking to doctor Thomas Sheehan, the new book is every win. God symmetry and time. Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference.

"Now. My guest is doctor Thomas. Shein, the book is every win. God, symmetry and time. Doctor Thomas Sheehan. Welcome to the program. I'm very pleased to be here, Eric, thank you for having me on. Well, listen, this is your title is beautiful. Every win is just, it's kind of like this mystical. It's almost, it seems like Tolkien came up with it or something like that. But before we get into God's symmetry and time, I want people to know who you are. So look, you got your degrees, your PhD from MIT, which is that's a community college, I believe, on the outskirts of Boston, right? Massachusetts institute of technology. You've done so much over the years that I don't know really where to start. You've co authored reports on things like rocket reentry instrumentation for Bell Labs. What years were you at Bell Labs, my goodness? It was during the Vietnam period from 66 to 73. And the best use of my talent in those days was to use my scientific knowledge to advance our defenses in our country. Well, I want to say that Dietrich bahnhof was fiance, Maria van vadem, Meyer, worked at Bell Labs. I think she may have been there at the end of your tenure. She ran a whole department there. She died very young of cancer in 1977. But it's perfectly possible that she was there when you were there. I had to ask
