Science says YES!
Let us now see if science helps theology to verify the writings in the scriptures! Are there scientific discoveries leading to proof of the existence of Paradise?
Einstein’s formula says YES. Human beings are creations…that descended from light!
In the book of Greek Orthodox Archimandrite Asterios Chatjinikolaou with the name “The beginning and the end of the world” there is description of a study that attempts to present a scientific theory of an existence of a blinding light in the beginning… that proves that there was indeed a Voice that was heard saying… LET THERE BE LIGHT!
A priest named Lemaitre who was a mathematician and a cosmologist, studied Einstein’s formulas in order to see “how would they exactly apply” in the beginning of the universe. In 1927 he formulated the concept of the primal atom. He thought of this by turning “evolution” backwards (using the formula) to a point in time all matter (galaxies) were concentrated into one sphere no larger than our sun!!! According to scientific research the primal atom described by Lemaitre was “a fiery sea of radiance”, the light from which it all begun. Genesis :(3) “Let there be light-and light appeared’ (4) “God was pleased with what he saw” Human beings are creations…descended from light!

The first martyr Stephen [Acts: 6-15] ” 15 And all that sat in the He face council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. “His face was radiant with the Light of Grace of God just like the face of Moses was when he was speaking with God”. This is kind of an experience in His Church (Greek Orthodox today) that has been known to take place with His Saints continuously throughout the 2000-year-old history of the Church
God is Light brigher than the sun! [Acts 26:13-14] 13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. 14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
The vision of Divine Light (returning to His presence) This is what LORD JESUS/GOD LOGOS told St. Symeon when He became worthy to His presence in His divine Light. “It is me, God, Who became man for you; and behold that I have made you, as you see, and shall make you god”. http://www.monachos.net/content/patristics/studies-fathers/67
God’s Divine Light is known in the heart! [Matthew 5-8] “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART- FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD”. The presence of God can only be known in the heart after it has become pure where God is known to testify to His Self to those becoming worthy (become Holy). [2 Corinthians: 4:6]. “God makes His Light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God’s glory shining in the face of Christ.
After the Second Coming the glory of His Saints will differ in Light!
[A Corinthians 15.41] “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory”. According to Paul in [1 Corinthians 15:41] after His Second Coming the glory of His Saints will differ in Light the same way the light of the sun differs from the light of the moon. 41 “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars”:
According to St. Nicholas the Athonite , after His Second Coming the bodies of His Saints will be like the body of the risen Christ as seen 11 times by the Apostles after He was resurrected and they will be: Soft, Lightweight, Beautiful, Glorious, Transparent, Bright, Warm, and spiritual.The verse in [1 John 3:2] verifies that those obedient to all of His commandments who had attracted the Grace of God this way while alive we will be like Him! “Beloved now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is….
AND THE BODIES OF THE UNHOLY (the likeness of the devil) will have a surpassing difference to those of the righteous ones there will be tough, heavy, ugly, foul, dark, evil stiff and unrefined”.
HOLY LIGHT.The Divine Presence in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre Jerusalem, every Saturday Greek Orthodox Easter for the past 1670 years. The Holy Light seen in the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre is a MATERIAL light (like the sunlight is material light) provided by the Grace of God that appears every year as an invitation to all those Christians who left the Church the year 1054 AC during the schism when the Patriarchy of Rome left the Church in violation of [Ephesians 4:5]. The Holy Light also gives HOPE to all of the Orthodox Faithful who are not yet perfected who cannot yet see (partake) see God in His Divine Light and live. [Exodus 33:20] “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live”. http://www.oodegr.com/english/ekklisia/holylight.htm
