Atheists enjoy mocking Christians accusing them of having a fairy-tale belief in Creation – that somehow there is a God who created heaven and earth.

So what happens when a renown scientist, with a Doctorate in Physics, says he believes that there is an intelligent being who created the universe? Not only that, he came to this conclusion after his study of science.

Meet world-renown American physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, 69. Born to Japanese parents, for 25 years he has held the Henry Semat Chair and professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York.

His journey started as a student at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California. Kaku showed up at his school’s National Science Fair with a particle accelerator, an atom smasher, that he made in his parent’s garage.

Though most were astounded by what he had created, Kaku looked upon it as a bit of a failure, as he had hoped to create a “a beam of gamma rays powerful enough to create antimatter.”

But despite his invention’s shortcomings, Physicist Edward Teller was impressed by Kaku’s achievement and took him under his wing and awarded him the Hertz Engineering Scholarship.

Kaku would graduate summa cum laude and at the top of his physic’s class at Harvard University in 1968 and go on to receive his Ph.D in physics from  the University of California in 1972.

He is co-founder of string field theory, a widely accepted revolutionary theory that uses strings (one-dimensional objects) to replace “point-like particles” found in particles physics.

He has authored seven books, including Hyperspace: A scientific odyssey through Parallel Universes and Parallel Worlds: A journey through creation, higher dimensions and the future of the Cosmos. Many have become best sellers.

He is also a popular speaker appearing on several radio and TV shows.  He has been featured in several documentaries too numerous to list here produced by such organizations as the History Channel, BBC, The Science Channel and The Discovery Channel.

Recently Kaku shocked the science world when he stated his belief in a Creator. In an interview with Geophysical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies he said:

“To me it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.”

He made similar statements in an interview with Ferocesmente when he added, “I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. Believe me, everything we call chance today won’t make sense anymore.”

Though Kaku does not perceive God, who he refers to as a “mathematician,” from a Christian perspective, he nevertheless acknowledges that what we see on earth and in the universe indicates the handiwork of a Creator.

Kaku says the universe is far too complex to have been created randomly by chance as evolutionists want us to believe.

The reaction by atheists has been predictable. They have mocked his ideas and then of course predictably tried to personally discredit him.

Kaku’s response is exactly what Paul says in Romans. Because of creation, no one will have an excuse:

20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20 NASV)

Kaku came to this conclusion after his study of primitive semi-radius tachyons which travel faster than the speed of light and basically protect particles from being influenced by the surrounding universe.

The Apostle Paul explains the physics this way:

16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:16-17 NASV)



  1. Christian Who Loves Atheist says

    I like Atheists, and that is why I want to tell
    them the way of salvation through JesusChrist.
