Jesus and Einstein on the Expansion of the Universe

Dear Ben,

Q. - According to Torah in Genesis 2:3, after the six days of Creation, God blessed the Seventh Day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work He had done in Creation. But in John 5:17 Jesus declared that God has been at work until now; obviously, that He has never stopped with his work of Creation. How can this apparent contradiction be harmonized?

A. - There is no contradiction. The six days of creation was the Jewish way to establish the commandment to keep the Sabbath holy in terms of resting, but by man and not by God, Who is not like a man to need rest. (Num. 23:19) The mention of God in the text was only to render the day holy.

Two thousand years ago a Jew - Jesus - made it clear that God has never stopped working. Then, two thousand years later, another Jew - Einstein - being asked if he believed in God, said that all his life was trying to catch God at His work of Creation. Probably, the first Jew had in mind the newly discovered expansion of the universe, while, on the other hand, the second Jew had Creation in mind when he connected his answer to the question if he believed in God, with his then research on the theory of the expansion of the universe.

Another probable evidence is found in the unsuccessful struggle of modern Cosmologists to understand how the expansion of the universe takes place. Some of them suggest that a way to understand that phenomenon is through quantum mechanics with the help of dark energy, which could even be used to contribute with the theory of multiverses. The fundamental problem though, is that, none knows what dark energy is and how it opperates in the universe.

Einstein, the second Jew in the context of this thread, gave another booster as he implied "design" by saying that God does not play dice. Could it be that expansion of the universe is the result of a design?

While research is keeping researchers busy on both sides, let us keep our minds open to the eventual probability that Einstein's master theory is just around the corner waiting only to surprise us all. In fact, when Einstein died, he was working on this master theory that would explain all theories.
