God as a Programmer!
While I was reading bible some days ago I got struck at the first chapter in the bible. The creation. What struck me was in the creation process, God creates light first and then creates the bodies to bear light.
Genesis – Chapter 1:3 God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.
And only in the fourth day God creates stars including sun and moon.
Genesis – Chapter 1:14-19 God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of heaven to divide day from night, and let them indicate festivals, days and years. Let them be lights in the vault of heaven to shine on the earth.’ And so it was. God made the two great lights: the greater light to govern the day, the smaller light to govern the night, and the stars. God set them in the vault of heaven to shine on the earth, to govern the day and the night and to divide light from darkness. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came: the fourth day.
How is that possible?
This question can be answered if you understand “With God, all things are possible.” (Mt 19.26) and What might have God thought while creating this world?
According to me its very simple programming technique. God is the best programmer. He just created the desired output first, that is Light. then created the source code for that, Sun and Stars. It is as simple as it is.
And if you have read the above quote keenly you could have also noted that both sun and moon were celled as sources for light. In fact its another intelligent programming model. Reusing the code.
Every time I read the bible. It never stops to amuses me.
Famous Quote by Albert Einstein: “What really interests me is whether God had any choice in the creation of the world. I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in ‘this or that’ phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.”
