A physicist with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, recently admitted in an interview with Newsweek that the universe is defying the laws of physics.

CERN physicist Christian Smorra said, “The universe should not exactly exist.”

With an annual budget of $1.24 billion, CERN, located in Switzerland, has a particle accelerator deep underground. They use this 17-mile long circular accelerator to have particles traveling at nearly the speed of light collide.

They have also been trying to find an imbalance between matter and antimatter. Since the matter and antimatter annihilate each other on contact, such an imbalance would be necessary for the universe to exist.

According to the Big Bang Theory the universe originally existed in pure energy the size of a thimble (literally the size of a thimble), this exploded in a “one trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second” to create all the matter that makes up the universe today.

However, if there was an equal amount of matter and antimatter, the universe should have self annihilated back into energy.

But it didn’t and because of this scientists reasoned there must be an imbalance between the amount of matter and antimatter. Using specially designed traps, they were able to capture and measure anti protons and despite repeated testing (350 times) with specially designed high-tech equipment they have not been able to discover an imbalance.

The universe’s very existence is breaking the laws of physics.

Some Biblical scholars believe that Big Bang Theory, based on the observed outward expanding movement of the universe from a central point, also perfectly explains creation when God instantly spoke the universe into existence from nothing.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. (Genesis 1:1-3 NASV)

We can argue about the thimble later.

But with an equal amount of matter and antimatter something else must be holding it together.

Physicist Smorra said “All of our observations find a complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, which is why the universe should not actually exist.”

So what is keeping the universe together?  Before we knew there was even a problem, the Apostle Paul wrote:

17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. (Colossians 1:17 NASV)
