    What does science teach us about the resurrection of Christ?

    Science equals general revelation. Thus, it lacks greatly.

    The more Biblical question should be, "What does the Resurrection teach us about science?"

    If it is a miracle, then not much.

    Belief in it because Bible states it happened, and has great historical proofs, but science? not so much!

    I think many scientists (naturalists) would simply dismiss any claims of the resurrection as myth, fraud or fanciful thinking. However, there are also multitudes of scientists who despite their "hard science" education and training give full credence to this miracle of the scripture.

    Its not able to be verified by scientists, so HAVE to rely upon the trustworthiness of the Bible, along with historical facts!

    I don't know that it says anything about the resurrection of Christ. However, it does have theories about immortality and resurrection in general.

    It says that in the very far, far future human intelligent life will have taken over the entire universe at which point the computational power of mankind approaches infinity. Using this extreme computational power coupled with the knowledge of and the manipulation of multi-verses, humanity will be able to recreate any discrete moment in time, or any sequence in time, in fact will be able to recreate history and thus will be able to resurrect humans from the dead.

    At least that is what I got out of reading The Physics of Immortality by Frank Tipler about 15 years ago. I think.

    What does the Bible teach us about nuclear fission reactions?

    I've been told that science teaches us about the advent of man, and it's quite a different story than what is revealed in Genesis. So I just thought that we might have been treated to a poetic description of the advent of Christ. Was curious what science had to say about it.

    You mean "metaphysics." This is nothing more than someone's naturalistic wishful thinking.

    That light came first.

    Cosmological timeline

    Planck era 10-43 sec. 1032 K Equality of all forces

    Inflation begins 10-35 sec. 1028 K GUT symmetry breaks

    Inflation ends 10-32 sec. 1027 K Strong & electroweak forces are separate

    Electroweak symmetry breaks 10-12 sec. 1015 K Separation of weak & electromagnetic force

    Baryogenesis 10-6 sec. 1013 K Quarks confined in hadrons, ending era of quark-gluon plasma

    Quark confinement complete 10-5 sec. 3×1012 K Only lightest hadrons remain (protons, neutrons); antimatter annihilated

    Nuclear binding 1 sec. 1010 K Nuclear binding energy exceeds photon energy; neutrinos decouple

    Nucleosynthesis begins 300 sec. 9×108 K 2H, 3H, 3He, 4He form

    Nucleosynthesis ends 35 min. 3×108 K Mostly H and 4He left
    Matter dominance 47,000 yrs. 8000 K Matter density exceeds radiation density

    Recombination begins 240,000 yrs. 3700 K Electrons begin to bind into atoms of H and 4He

    Last photon scattering 350,000 yrs. 3000 K Universe becomes fully transparent, no matter/photon interactions

    Reionization ∼108 yrs. 30 K First stars

    First galaxies ∼5×108 yrs. 10 K Corresponds to redshift z = 8

    Present 13.7×109 yrs. 2.725 K Internet, Chinese food, etc.,Arguments over theology

    Cute. But Paul said "in the twinkling of an eye." Is he describing an eon or does he mean intantaneously? And how do you know?
