When Science Supports Christianity

There are a lot of people who think that science is nearly the opposite of Christianity. This isn’t always true, however. What happens when science firmly supports Christianity? For one thing, it probably isn’t going to be reported by the main stream media. Here is a case in point, which was never carried by the major media.



Christians believe that Jesus is the gateway and only way to enter God’s kingdom. This is because the bible is exceedingly clear on this point. It is said in different ways in the bible, but the message is plain.

There are several symbols that are used to represent Jesus. One of the most universal symbols is that of the cross. This is because Jesus died on the cross to pay for the sins of those people who turn to him. The crucifixion is one of the cornerstones of the Christian faith, because it gives us all hope, even though every one of us is a sinner.

One of the passages in the bible, found at Colossians 1:17, says

“He [Jesus] is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”

There is naturally a figurative meaning to this scripture. It turns out that there may be a much more literal and physical meaning as well.

You see, micro-biologists have succeeded in isolating a number of base proteins in the body. One of those proteins is called laminin. The Free Dictionary defines laminin as:

“Any of a family of glycoproteins of the basement membrane and mediate cell proliferation, migration, differentiation, and adhesion.”

To a non biologist, this probably doesn’t make a lot of sense, so let’s put it in a simpler form. Laminin is an adhesion molecule. It is the stuff that literally holds our bodies together.

What does this have to do with Jesus and Christianity? Well, let me show you a schematic diagram of laminin 111.

The shape is unmistakably the one of the cross. Okay, but this is only a schematic diagram. It doesn’t really prove anything, right? Wrong, it proves a lot. Pictures of the laminin protein, taken by an electron microscope, show that the proteins are indeed in the shape of a cross, the symbol of Jesus, and this is confirmed by the Truth or Fiction website. The symbolism is hard to get around. Is it coincidence that the most well known symbol for Jesus is found in a protein responsible for holding all of us together? Many people, myself included, would find this to be much more than coincidental.

How about if we look at another scientific discipline; astronomy. After all, Colossians says, “ALL things”. So if it is true of the incredibly tiny, there should be an indication of some sort that it is also true of the enormous. I’ve written about black holes and how they spin and in that article, I mentioned that black holes have masses that are far greater than even our own sun. As it happens, the Hubble Space Telescope took some incredibly detailed pictures of a neighboring galaxy, designated M-51 and known as the Whirlpool Galaxy. This galaxy is nearly perpendicular to our line of sight, so it is an ideal candidate for looking for the black hole at the center. (It is theorized that there is a black hole at the center of all galaxies.) It was the accretion disk of a black hole that Hubble was specifically being used to find. It did exactly that, and the image is surprising and staggering, though it isn’t what astronomers expected to see:

Amazingly, there is a cross in an enormous object as well as one that can only be seen through an electron microscope. Naturally, many naysayers have been trying desperately to explain all this away, unsuccessfully. There is little doubt that they will continue to try, because they hate it every time science actually supports the bible. Still, this should increase the faith of Christians and give hope to those who aren’t Christian.

It seems that Colossians 1:17 has both a figurative and a literal meaning. It is most interesting that the two meanings coincide, isn’t it?



A man named Louie Giglio explains all of this much more clearly than I can:

      This is an amazing article. You know me, I love God and Jesus the son of God.

      I love these kind of articles.

      I tweeted, facebook, G+, pinned, stumbled and tumblr 🙂

        LOL…thank you! I don’t do as good a job of explaining it all as Louie Giglio does, but he has the advantage of being able to do it in video. lol

      I think you did a wonderful job explaining this. I wonder if it will make sense to my teen son. or if he will turn his nose up at it.

        When non-believers first hear it, they often say, “Naw…can’t be.” However, a curiosity can set in. They may even check it out for themselves and find out that it is true. Any way you look at it, it often plants the seed. As a good Christian, that is all you are expected to do. It is up to God to make the seed grow.

      Fascinating stuff! I have always said that sometimes the scientists that work on the most intricate aspects of life in our universe tend to be the most spiritual. I believe it’s at least in part because there are so very many synchronicities like this one.

        Very true. In fact, some of the most faithful Christian are people who at one time went to great lengths to disprove the existence of God. Even Albert Einstein was a god fearing man. Of course, he really wasn’t a scientist, he was a mathematician, but he was still well know for being a genius and a very rational thinker.

        That is a fact. I can definitely understand and relate, too. I worked with a guy I knew very little about. I liked him and decided that I wanted to get to know him better. About all I knew about him was that he loved leather craft. So, I took up leather craft, to understand him better. I never got into it like he did, but it did give me insights into who he was. Einstein felt much the same way. God created the universe and the mathematics that governed it, so by learning more about the math and science, a person can learn more about God. It is logical. 🙂

      I don’t have much knowledge about the bible and Christianity but I believe he is there come to the earth. And because of him we have BC and the date. We can’t deny anything unless we know it perfectly, we must be thankful to those people who brought the news about those great people / God or whoever. I always feel that there is a god who is watching us from the top of the world because he is our creator as like our father, our father he always try to protect us and give us comforts though he struggles a lot for his family and children but yet he feels happy for that, like wise our creator our god also protect us with many things and given us the elements to live in this world. Just think if there is no air, if there is no food / plants or water etc.,

        The bible is very compelling and explains in far more detail than most people who’ve never read it realize. It gives tremendous insights into who our creator is and what he expects of us. In fact, it even explains why we see the evils and pain and strife of everyday life we see in the world. There are still a lot of people who don’t believe in God and that is their right. There are far more people who have simply not heard about the good news, hope, joy and love that’s contained in the bible.

      Now what the Bible says that the truth will set us free. The people are now beginning to believe what the Bible says. However, faith is enough to believe all what is written in the Bible.

        Faith is incredibly important, not just in regard to the bible, but in regard to life. Most people use faith even when they don’t realize it. When I go to bed at night, I have faith that I will wake up the next morning. I don’t *know* that I will, and there is always the chance that I won’t, when my time on this earth is up, but faith is the belief in something we can’t and don’t know through our own senses. Thus, believing that I’ll wake up after going to sleep is faith. 🙂

        Faith makes everything possible. Imagine Sarai, the wife of Abram. is 90 years old and because of her faith, she gives birth to Isaac.

        Yes. There are many fine examples in the bible; the ordeals of Job, David’s defeat of Goliath, Daniel and the lions, even Moses and the children of Israel. (Can you imagine wandering the wilderness for 40 years with only the faith in the promised land to sustain you? I’m not sure that my faith would be strong enough for that, without a lot of prayer.)
